External corrosion is easily dealt with. It's the internals that night be a problem.

Thread: mini lathes
11/11/2018 19:49:32

Wotcha peeps! I was thinking of getting a small lathe and saw these-- -----Is Raitool a good make? Can they handle steel and screw cutting?. With the right accessories of course. There are a number of sizes etc.if you scroll down. I would like the biggest one but I'm not sure I can afford it. Especially if it turns out to be unsuitable.

Any ideas welcome. Regards John

One must remember WW11 fighters were designed with quick elevator responses to start with so it's to be expected.

Why not make your own glow fuel. Methanol etc are easy to get.

Make one in card first to obtain patterns for the TIN PLATE (soup ,Beans etc tins.) If you want a simple way to get a slim one look for the bigger versions of sardine or pichard tins .Tinned herrings and kippers are bigger if you can find them.Solder a plate over the tear out place but fit your tubes in first. Easier when you can see inside. Oh yes don;t forget to boil them in detergent to remove the oil etc first. Test with a magnet as some are aluminium unless you fancy trying the alloy low temperature solders first 300 C solder available. I got some a while back but you will have to look on Amazon E bay for it I'm afraid as my memory is not good at present since losing my darling wife last month.

Cooking oil bottles are good and come in many sizes.

Thread: Time to check your clunk
03/11/2018 05:43:35

Do you mean the clunk was rattling due to vibration from the engine. That's the only reason I can think of for a noisy clunk. If so check bearings and conrod fits. The rod looks nudged not cracked but check carefully under a good magnifying glass Also prop for balance, cracks etc. Re the clunk give it a rubbing with wet and dry to clean it up. Clean out the holes by blowing through with an airline or a pump. to avoid any abrasive going into the engine.. It doesn't matter if the chrome comes off. Just as an afterthought are the engine mounts secure. That can cause vibes if not. Take care.

P.S. Just had a look at no 1 piston . Is that a vertical crack I see? That could be the problem if it is cracked.

Thread: Hats off to Aldi
03/11/2018 05:06:12

The rotary multi tool I bought packed up due to excessive vibration DUE TO A BENT MANDREL at full revs and me being slow to switch off or slow down. I contacted Aldi's service dept and spoke to a lovely lass who arranged a replacement to be sent and told me to dispose of the one I have as I wished. I feel a project coming on. Might only be a fractured soldered joint or a u/s speed controller.. Wish me luck.

P.S. any suggestions welcome.

You don't do another crutch and formers for the other side ( although you could have done with half the thickness wood ) and join it to the first side. I suppose if you didn't mind a fractionally wider fuse you could do it that way if you wanted to. The idea was to build it "a la main" in the hand hence a banana if side one isn't rigid enough. Do as you suggest and add some planking and you should be fine. I prefer horizontal crutches but I'm quite happy with vertical ones having built KK scale Hurricanes and Spits since I was 9 yrs old. Forget the carbon paper and go for it . Just ensure the half formers are true to the original side. Easy with the magnetic board and blocks then when dry add the stringers to that side and start planking. Enjoy and have patience.
