Re: BDR reels spinning slowly

All sorted now. It was as simple as a weak spring not doing its job on the clock.

BDR reels spinning slowly

My BDR top reel is spinning slowly and it seems to be because the ‘win pin’ starts to touch the lower win cog as soon as the sequence starts.
Has anyone experienced this and know a fix for it ?

Re: Making cabinets

I’d come to the conclusion that old furniture was probably what people used and you’ve just confirmed this for me.

Making cabinets

I’m sure it’s been asked before but where do people get their oak from if they have to make a new cabinet ?

I’ve noticed some cabinets are made out of several planks glued together but some are made in one piece.

Would love to know people's thoughts.

Oh well, with nobody coming forward with any help, looks like I’ll have to drop in and see Badpenny to see what I’m missing.

Re: Caille / Clement & Whales Countertop disc machines

Just in case anyone wants some artwork for this machine, here is what I've reproduced for mine.

It needs printing on an A3 sheet

Re: Small turned metal parts

Is this what you're looking for ?

Machined Pin.jpg

This took me just under 2 hours to make, plus the material (plus of course 2 hours lost time from my normal working day)

So, what would you think would be a fair price for it ?
