Guys, another favour. Does anyone have articles on building the depthing tool from castings? I'd like to have them for reference:

Are they bulldog clip springs???  :dremel:

Don't know about you but looks homemade! Could be a clog mile out.

Bill, I'm not going to lie. Since having this discussion I have actually got my hands on some original Malcolm Wild depthing tool castings. However, I promise you I'm so excited about the ball bearing idea that I'm going to attempt making that as my first project when my workshop is setup!!

Wondering how did this progress?

latest MEW (The April issue of Model Engineers' Workshop, number 227) had an article:
MAKING A CLOCK DEPTHING TOOL -

Don't know anything of the mater, but remembered this thread!

The day after I purchased all the metal and even the ball bearings, I sold my house and in panic packed up my workshop. I've only just got the new shop straight and ready for action. This is still on my immediate to do list, in fact, I genuinely got the material out a few weeks back. I'll Certainly be reading the article if I can get my hands on a copy...  :wave: :coffee: if I can get my hands on a copy  :med: if I can get my hands on a copy   :beer:

It doesn't by any chance use bulldog clips and ball bearings as hinges does it!!! If so, I have an idea where he plans came from. :lol:

Well its been months since I last posted and I`ve been moving forward at a snail pace. Anyway, finally its been made.

It may have been 3 years ago or more, but the concept works and the project is finally finished.

Thanks to everyone who chipped in on here and especially Bill Todd for all his drawings and thoughts. Appreciate the video may not be to everyone's taste but I enjoy putting them together and each to their own. Certainly shows the build and final product! I`m always looking for constructive criticism and opinions as to my machining! Cheers

Nice job Chris...

At the end of the video i was thinking you will have to get the measurement from the centers of the pins i was so surprised to see it doubles as a divider a very clever design... you made a smashing job of your tool.

Anthony.
If you cant fix it, get another hobby.
