This installation has been working fine.

Alternative to magnetic scales video here - glass scales:


Incidently, pretty much same locations and logic with this video and my installation.

How is it that the capacitors in these old PSU's can last 60 years but modern caps die off after a few years especially if they are not used?

Graham Meek describes a micrometer boring head in his book, Projects for your workshop vol 1. Which is available from TEE publications  It was also serialised  in Engineering in miniature   https://www.teepublishing.co.uk/search/?keyword=Graham%20Meek

:update:
Alright, I have now completely rewritten the Pandora-CNC.eu website from scratch. It is a lot slimmer now and does not rely on a CMS or cookies anymore.
It does also free some of the server resources which helps too. I have also made sure that all links keep working which turned out to be a lot more problematic than I had first thought  :bang:
The website is now available in English, German and Chinese.

Knocked up a quick stand - or would have been quick had it not been too long for the lathe

Looks all nice and shiny, much better than the earth , so might have to take a power mop to the globe .

And then this morning the baize went on. Knowing this stuff is great fun even on open flat surfaces, I thought that I'd be clever and make a paper template. It 'sort of worked' but this stuff stretches all over the place and when it's 'down' it stays down resisting movement. I'm not entirely happy with the result as it's not absolutely flat in places but it's definitely functional.

Some time earlier I had 3D printed a protective cap in ABS that slips over the actual probe itself, preserving the ruby tip (hopefully!)
