Re: Forums and social media

It probably is just the fact that you get notifications and people tend to look at Facebook for other reasons and will check these groups. I’m a member of one and it’s mainly very overpriced machines in the US, but you never know what might come up I guess. As for information, this forum is miles ah...

Re: Jennings Governor plating

It’ll soon be cheaper to send them to the US to be chromed as it’s a diminishing industry over here. I’d heard some stories about the guys in Hull so didn’t want to risk it. Got one company who are going to look at it. Probably strip and polish as they don’t think they can get the chrome into the gr...

Jennings Governor plating

Having trouble finding someone to plate or polish my Jennings Governor. One guy has had it for 4 months and now given up on polishing it after not being able to remove the old plating. One plating shop is about to look at it but say that previously they have always had difficulty in getting the plat...

Re: Opportunity of the decade coming

Sorry BP, that should have read "our" not "out" as in Badpenny, Geordy, Treefrog etc.

I understand what you're organising.

Jennings Governor retaining clamp

Hi, Can anyone tell me if the brass retaining clamp is standard on these machines ? This one is up for auction, but mine is identical.
Also, the left hand support as you look at it is cast and the right hand seems to be machined aluminium. Is this also common ?

Any help appreciated.

As an amateur in this area, I’m always up for learning from, and talking to, the experts we have on this site, I’d certainly be interested in a social meeting of some kind.
