    Hello from Pangnirtung, Nunavut.

    Blondihacks had her mill die: Precision Mathews gave her great support on repair and subsequently, Matt gifted her with a new mill. Maybe if you were a YouTube creator with a large fan base ... Safe travels Don

    Hello from Pangnirtung, Nunavut.

    I have no suggestion Don except a possible protest campaign from the CHM membership. There's power in a small group of committed (and outraged) people.

    Well, John, great story with a happy ending. Did you know that a Standard Modern is coming up soon in Toronto? I would have thought that your "me and my brother want to buy a SM lathe APB" would have pinged. I don't know about removing the tire rack though unless you are retaining compost and...

    Hello from Nova Scotia

    Welcome from Stittsville ON. I spent a few years in Halifax and loved it. My beat was NS and PEI. If it weren't for the birth of our firstborn and my wife's desire to be closer to her Mom, in Ottawa, we would still be there.

    Welcome from Stittsville ON. It's rare to hear from an Amateur operator, I used to contribute to VE3 GOC. Learning Morse at 15 words per minute was a tall challenge for me.

    Hello from Pangnirtung, Nunavut.

    Welcome from another Don. About 20 years ago, I hiked in Auyuittuq National Park on the Cumberland Peninsula with a buddy from Yellowknife. Closest I've been to your home. I'm happily retired in Ottawa and a new member learning a lot from this talented crew. I miss the smoked Arctic Char I used...

    WTB - watchmaker lathe

    This Gilman is local to me. Seems expensive for what it is. The Shaublin has a better pedigree and parts availability https://www.ebay.ca/itm/284982369738?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=OXEhxIBSRkW&sssrc=2047675&ssuid=h_y1vaS_SLO&widget_ver=artemis&media=EMAIL Depends what you...

    Hi Matt. From your photo, it looks like the fuse is blown. Have you put an ohmmeter across the clips? Power off of course).

    Thanks for that Toronto. Those of us at the edges of the internet are stuck with Sodoku.

    The battle of the Harrisons

    The price of the Feeler has dropped twice. I think that it's located in Trois Rivieres but advertised across Canada Buyers may be put off by the seller's requirement to submit your credentials.

    I don't need automated screw-cutting, but hoo boy, it's slick to watch. Sorry, I may be messing up this thread.

    The battle of the Harrisons

    Thanks, I will look up wordle. I am re-calibrating my toolroom dreams. I will mostly be making small parts and tools with fine threads. I'm thinking of a Hardinge clone, Cyclematic, Sharpe, Babin, or similar toolroom lathes. There's a Feeler 440v also a Hardinge HLV clone at FEELER FTL 618...

    Dear fellow maker, if I can employ that term, a question: "how on earth do you have time to find all these posts"? Not that I'm complaining.

    Craftex CT043 old style

    I had a nice chat with Matt last night. Really nice guy. I left him to think about selling the 043 locally or at least to re-think his price once he can check fuse/motor. It wouldn't be right to give up his profit until he knows. I have to bow out on this one. Transport costs using a rental van...

    Craftex CT043 old style

    No, I did not see that, wasn't looking. Seems far too inexpensive, must be driven by horses. Belay that, just found it. A lot of hobbyists have had fun with these, for sure but I was hoping to have something a little more substantial for my first metal lathe.

    Thanks Folks. I thought the Avatar click would work but didn't want to accidentally start an unintentional public thread. Last time I was down past London, four pairs of Bose 901 speakers followed me home. All but one pair needed EQ rebuilds and new veneer.

    Oh Flitz this may be too much of a temptation for me. I would have to sell my 64 yearn old wood lathe to make space and drive for 7-½ hours, one-way from Ottawa, but anything for a site-mate I may be able to relieve TorontoBuilder of his dilemma and make a new one for myself. Can someone would...
