Hello from macclesfield
« on: July 07, 2015, 02:08:40 PM »
hello all,

I came across this site after seeing a few posts about it on the mig-welding forum.

Im a keen tinkerer living in Macclesfield and I have always got a project or two on the go, unfortunately my projects are usually a little more rough around the edges that some of the great workmanship you see on here.

I served my time as a fitter turner but haven't done any machining in a professional capacity for some time, I do however use a 13" Harrison that I have in the shed and I have recently bought a little Marlow milling machine to complement It.

I look forward to seeing some more of everyones projects. and I may post some of my own if I feel they are worthy.

Rory

im away from home at the moment, once I get back I will post a  few pics up of the machines and some projects that I have completed in the past.

most of my projects are repairs to pieces of plant and machinery but now and again I build something nice for myself.

heres a pic of the 13" Harrison when I first got it a while ago, it came with a 3 jaw and a 4 jaw, but the 4 jaw was a L00 instead of a L0. ive still not got round to getting a L0 yet.

its a little rough and ready but it does a good job of the pins and bushes for machines that I need.

the cross feed handle had to come off to get it thru the narrow door and the tailstock was taken off for a good clean up as it was a bit sticky.
