Re: Tap-breakers and Swearers Club

 

But ..but.. you are my hero, I thought you knew everything there was to know about all such matters!


Tap-breakers and Swearers Club

Ian White
 

One of the next jobs here will be to drill a precise pattern of holes in the heatsink of an existing SSPA, and tap them for M2.5 screws.

The heatsink will just about balance on the table of the drill press, so drilling the 2.05mm holes shouldn't be too much of a problem. But I'm very worried about breaking a tap, because then I'm really in trouble - there'll be no way forward and no way back.

Any suggestions, please?

Methods I've already tried: Doing it freehand with traditional T-shaped tap wrench is very dodgy, because I find the rotating wrist action is a very good way to snap a fragile tap. Tapping holes on the drill press (with the belt removed, of course) has never worked well for me either. It requires two right arms, and the return spring is far too strong which ruins the all-important 'feel'.

How about a pin chuck with an ordinary control knob attached to the spindle? One hand can concentrate entirely on holding the spindle straight, while the other one very gently and carefully rotates the knob.

A final thought: any recommendations for lubricating the steel tap in hard aluminium, please?

First UKuW group talk tomorrow the 11th of November

Chris G0FDZ
 

Millimetre Waves – By Chris Whitmarsh G0FDZ

A UK Microwave Group Online Lecture streamed by the BATC
Wednesday 11th November 2020 at 20:00

Chris Whitmarsh G0FDZ will be presenting his guide to the millimetre waves in this online talk. He will cover all aspects
of the millimetre bands including users, propagation, antennas and feeders, basic equipment for each band to 241
GHz and beyond, and finish with mentioning the use of SDR for identifying weak signals.
There should be something in the talk for everyone from beginner on the millimetre bands to expert. However, there
is no heavy maths or theory to blow your mind!

The talk will be streamed on this URL:

https://batc.org.uk/live/ukmicrowave

We look forward to welcoming all to the talk.

Please put the 9th December 2020 in your diary for the next talk in this series.

Re: Distraction was re Limitation of Portable Operation

I think it must have been Keatleys where I bought some brass for a 3cm wavemeter in 1976, while I was living in Birmingham. Nice to know they are still around. Their website is a bit last-century, with no pricing or online sales, but they do offer delivery.  Is that the usual "we've got our own wagon and we'll drop off within 25 miles radius" sort of thing?

I'd like to find a decent supplier of the high-strength 7xxx aluminium alloys and C109/C111 free-cutting copper, as well as Naval Brass. I can get C101 copper from Aalco or Smiths and the fancy stuff from Metelec, but it is very spendy from them. I've also bought Tellurium copper and Sulphur copper and free-machining CW114C from S&D Non-Ferrous in West Bromwich http://sdnonferrous.co.uk/tellurium-copper <http://sdnonferrous.co.uk/tellurium-copper>

Hi Michael,

They are indeed still in business, although perhaps moved a few yards to the left of where you once saw them,  and are now in the old chapel at the end of the row.  You can still find an assortment of scrap, and a vast array of specialist brass, bronze and copper.

I use a chap in Worcester ( GW Metals and Tools) who is an absolutely lovely chap to deal with and will procure whatever you want from Keatley and keeps a good stock of the various specialist stuff like copper foils, brass meshes etc.

There is an absolutely fascinating history to the old building Keatley were in,  which I came across through my other hobby of shooting. As you are no doubt aware, they are located close to Birmingham's gun district,  and the building was once the home of the Abingdon Gun Works, makers of the "Swinburn-Henry" rifle, a close relative of the Martini-Henry,  and amongst other things the AKD brand of motorcycles and the famous "King Dick" brand of spanners.

Re: Distraction was re Limitation of Portable Operation

Hi Robin

Many thanks for that information, Birmingham is a fascinating city. We once spent a week there with the Association for Industrial Archaeology, and also spent a week exploring the canal network.

Thanks also for the information on GW Metals, I thought I knew most of the metal distributors who were willing to deal with hobby purchasers from attending many model engineering shows, but haven't come across him before.

73, Mike.

On a vaguely virus-related note it took a while as the supplier I use (John Keatley Metals) does not ship by post, and I did not want to travel into the seething metropolis of Birmingham. Fortunately, he has a local chap who makes occasional visits and I collect from Worcester, but with the virus, he was not travelling there so often either.

Anyhoo ... as of yesterday, I have a nice slab of 1/4" by 4" copper that I shall endeavour to mill tomorrow.

Regardless of the exact wording of the legislation or guidance, the spirit and overall intention is clear.  

 

I would also suggest that since the contest committee have been handed the poison chalice of negotiating their way through this minefield and balancing what is legal with what is sensible and what is going to appear responsible ... that we support them in their decisions. I would not want to be the one doing this particular job, as I should imagine whatever they decide, a good number of people will be unhappy with the decision for some reason. 

 

For that reason alone, I think the right thing to do is to simply support the decision.   I have no problem with robust discussion prior to the ruling, but I think if we are going to ask people to volunteer and run a committee, then we have to offer them our full support in their efforts.
