Re: Tyme lathes?

Hi Giler, Had a closer look this morning, and this is what I suggest you try. I haven't tried it (belt still OK), but I see no reason why it shouldn't work. 1) Remove the large circlip from the RH side of the headstock. You'll need some largish internal circlip pliers with max 2.3mm dia pins. 2) Rem...

Re: Tyme lathes?

Hi Giler, As I said see Teza22's comments above. I'll have closer look tomorrow, and try to give you some more detailed instructions. You'll definitely need a pair of internal circlip pliers, sufficient to remove a 47mm circlip, and a 3mm allen key for the grub screw in the 800 rpm Poly V pulley. So...

Re: Tyme lathes?

Hi Giler,

See Teza22's comments above. I also echo what 9fingers says. A little release fluid or WD40 might help just in front of where the circlip goes, or a rub with some emery cloth to remove any rust that may have formed in the bore of the headstock.

Hello,
Do any of you knowledgeable folks out there know if a Stanley No. 78 Rabbet Plane blade will fit a Millers Falls No.85 Rabbet Plane?

Re: Tyme lathes?

Hello Teza22,

Just to let you know I haven't forgot.

Had a quick butchers last night. It looks like the shaft will need drifting from left to right. I'll have a more detailed look this afternoon and be in touch.

Re: Tyme lathes?

Good afternoon Teza22,

Sorry for the delay, just got back.

The belt you require is a 200J4 Poly-V. Just for interests sake, the Tyme part No. is 101140 and retailed for £3.74 in 1986 (happy days eh!)

Hope this helps

Re: Tyme lathes?

Another question if I may.

Does anyone know the overall length of the Tyme Cub (the 750mm between centres model)?

I've just realized that the motor is outboard of the headstock rather than inboard as on the SL750.

Many thanks.

Tyme lathes?

Good afternoon All, I'm going to update my Tyme SL750 lathe with a Tyme Cub. Why you ask? Because it will give me a swivel headstock for larger bowl truning, an extra spindle speed, and twin bed bars for more consistant headstock to tailstock alignment. Plus, the accessories I already have will fit,...

Re: Metabo 260 H Planer/ Thicknesser

I agree that the stick method works (eventually), but it had me going from one side of the knife, to the other, like a ping pong ball, until eventually they were both the same. I'm still not convinced that, however accurately you set the knives, you can eliminate snipe. I think it's more to do with ...

Hello Scrollalong, Had similar issues with my KIty 1637 Planer/Thicknesser. Snipe is something that is almost impossible to eliminate even with the best set knives. I've just bought an Axminster "Planer Blade Vernier Setting Jig", and it does the job just fine. However, you have to fully l...

Re: Wadkin L-1512 Hand Planer?

Thanks again Jonathan,

Unfortunately, the website wasn't very navigable, and I get the feeling that they might be a bulk tooling supplier. However, I've sent them an e-mail and hope for a favorable response. They list the basic size, so who knows.

Re: Wadkin L-1512 Hand Planer?

Just a bit more info that may be of some use (or not).

The knives are marked on the reverse with RYOBI SKH. I've found plenty of RYOBI blades that looked similar, but were only 82mm wide. Mine are 92mm wide!

Re: Wadkin L-1512 Hand Planer?

Many thanks Jonathan,

Just sent them an e-mail, lets hope it bears fruit. While the blades are re-sharpenable, I would like a spare set to swap over "on the job". I fear they will not be too easy to find, as they look quite different to the currently available ones.

Wadkin L-1512 Hand Planer?

Hello All,

I have a Wadkin L-1512 Hand Planer and require a set of replacement planer knives (2 off). Does anyone know where I can source them. I've tried DaltonsWadkin, but they were unable to help. If it's any help, they are 92mm wide, with three open ended slots and two holes.

Thanks Chris, I like the idea of TC coated blades, presumably it's some kind of electro deposition process.

Hello Chris, Many thanks for the response. I've now got a Rabot Kid 20 from Ebay. I agree with all you say, but must add that the translated instructions leave a little to be desired.

Idealy I'd like to buy new, as it would appear there are several different kits, and it would give me some choice. However, at the right price and condition I would certainly consider previously loved.

Re: Could Someone Recommend a good set of Wood lathe chisels

Have to agree with woodsmith. Look for idividual tools rather than a set, as you'll probably end up with tools that never get used. Besides, you can spend the same on say 4 tools as you would on 8 and get better quality per tool. Especially as you intend to turn fine detail, where a good sharp edge ...
