Re: A course on using the lathe

Just to add my thanks to Terry for an excellent course.

If you are a beginner with a lathe and you get the chance to attend one of these days, it's well worth going on.

If you were there on Saturday, and left something vital behind, then please contact me.

Cheers,

Dave

We start setting up this afternoon and evening.

Re: Split axles

Hi David,

Branchlines used to do 2mm split axles, but I don't know if the new owners stock them. When I asked at Scaleforum last year they didn't have any split axles (either 2mm or 1/8") in stock.

It might be worth asking them.

Cheers,

Dave
