Re: Show us your milling machine!

I purchased this Clausing 8540 Horizontal Mill with an adaptor for a Bridgeport M Head. There is a unique adaptor for an M Head on the machine. I saw one of these at the North American Model Engineering Society Show last April. They were being advertised in HSM. During the summer I made arrangements...

Re: silver soldering steel to steel

Since I got some much appreciated advice on pickling solution for steel thought I would show you the result. I used about a 10% citric acid solution slightly warmed. It cleaned up the metal real nice. I used the Harris Black Flux since I was doing this all in one shot and it tends not to turn liquid...

Re: silver soldering steel to steel

Hi Thanks for the tips, I had not thought of citric acid, I will try that as I do not want to destroy the finish on the rods. I have rarely done steel silver brazing and had Sparax 1 at the time. I will see about picking up some of those bricks and get rid of my heavy firebricks. As for the drill ro...

Re: Is MSC Totally Useless?

Bill

That is what I mean it is confusing, you get the $410 price automatically, I only get
it if I enter the jun35 code. That implies you get the "35%" all the time??

Oh well, I usually check around take the best I can get.

I am registered and logged in. I went to the MSC site and get this back:

If I enter a promo code then I get :
msc2.JPG
It appears you get a better price with no Promo code.

I need to find out how to get that .

Re: Eccentric Engineer Announcement - Small Scale Injectors in stock!

I pasted that same link in a PM about a week ago. https://timesavers.com/i-24050835-10-pack-italian-pegwood-2...

Re: Eccentric Engineer Announcement - Small Scale Injectors in stock!

DianneB I have been using injectors as the primary water supply source since I came into this hobby in the late 70's. I have had them on 3/4, 1 1/2, a 14", 1/4 scale traction engine and am now installing one of these on a 2" scale Case. Here is my recipe for success. The feed line from the dome need...
