    Good idea. An added benefit would be the emphasis on both mar and lago at Mar-a-lago :D

    I didn't look closely enough at John's pictures. You definitely need the two slot banjo, as on the bottom picture!

    To be honest, I'd use a high sulfer or high chlorine, neat cutting oil. Those seem to work acceptably with carbide inserts on high-hardness steels when I'm not cutting dry.

    Neither, I've got a 1952 HLV (no -H), Imperial+Metric dials, Imperial leadscrew+box and a metric change wheel banjo. :D

    I'd recommend Green Jack Baltic Trader. Ok, it's from Lowestoft, not Yarmouth, but it's got a sort of Viking feel to it :-)

    Swap the location of the 60T idlers and the 25/40T pair. That should allow it all to work. (I think).

    I have enough problems due to the fact that I've got a mixture of 22DP (Hardinge) and 20DP...

    I'm sure that with a bit of coal and oil, it would be possible to melt all that annoying ice off of Greenland, so it could be made into a nice golf course. :eek:

    Gordon, grow a pair. If you can't take a little gentle joshing (which is what is was), then don't make posts and start threads that are guaranteed to attract it.

    I feel for you. This is very much a case where single payer would work in your favour (if implemented to serve the customer). I've been a type 1 diabetic since 1965. In the UK, the NHS typically pays...

    Well, the three funds that hold my redundancy pay/savings/living expenses for the next 4 years, lost an average of 2.6% today. So I guess that some wide boys in the city have made a bob or two...

    I think Gordon's (and just about everyone else that doesn't live in the USA) is that insurance works best with the largest possible pool of users and the lowest overheads. And it is an insurance...
