I have a problem folk.

First off let me show you a job I did yesterday.

http://homepage.ntlworld.com/stevenson.engineers/lsteve/files/acmescrew1.jpg

It's a 12" length of 5/8" LH acme thread and nut for a machine feedscrew.
It was screwcut on my CVA lathe in the normal manner, HSS tooling at 120 rpm.

Normally at these speeds soluble oil based coolant doesn't work well and I use a spray on Rocol type cutting fluid to get the required finish on the flanks of the threads.

Well the other day because the CVA was low on coolant I cleaned it out and swapped over to the free neat cutting oil I was given.
The difference is fantastic, drilled holes look close to reamed holes and just roughing gets a decent finish instead of plowed fields.

Is the thread, not a good pic as daughters camera doesn't have macro but it gives a good indication of the flank finish straight off the tool.

Now the problem, because of my banter over the last few months with IOWOLF over my name, Richard the III etc, etc, I finished up with Sir John, Earl of Sudspumpwater which has a nice ring to it.

However Sir John, Earl of Neatcuttingoil doesn't so I'd like you all to come up with a neat [ no pun intended ] name.
The winner gets a free 5 gallon drum but they have to pay shiping ;):D

And I never thought that cutting fluid could make such a difference.

Surely you've been a knight long enough and are due a promotion - Lord Stevenson of Neat Oil (or maybe you haven't donated enough to Tony Blair yet.....)

King John of Coolant

Of course, come the revolution, we the people of the Free Coolant will overthrow the coolant barons and share the coolant among the common citizenry. That should give us about a thimble full each. Then we will go on to b%*ger everything else up.

Yes,but you have to let the used side dry out first.:D

If you are going to let it dry, you might as well crinkle it off and go for four uses.

We used to have to do that so we could keep the Sears catalog to order from.

Outhouses and Sears Catalog. Almost a match made in heaven.......other than the smell. Some weren't ventilated very well. Those were the days, fighting spiders and snakes while things drip down your trousers. Usually bibs with rusted snaps.

It has been very fine for me to know a person who lives in Nottingham. I am a great fan of Robin of Loxley and especially the old Errol Flynn version of Robin Hood. It is fine for me to remember you in this place (even if reality doesn't fit that fantasy.)

I would call you "Sir John the Inspirer." I say this because of your message to me when I was considering purchasing my BP milling machine and I am glad of your advice and I am very happy with my decision.

Thank you Sir John the Inspirer.

Spencer Jorgensen.

Like all aristocracy, you should just stack the titles up.

Sir John, Lord of Lubrication, Earl of Sudspumpwater

Then perhaps you could sort out your motley surfs, with their arse wiping and sheep. Most unbecoming for a man in your position!

We Scots sure are a boastful lot. Spring for a roll of toilet paper and feel compelled to tell the world about it :D

I dunno folks. To me "Earl of Sudspumpwater" seems to have a better ring than the offerings so far.

Not that I can think of anything better. I can't remember all the English titles. What else do we have other than King, Prince, Lord, Earl, Duke or Squire? ...and what's the pecking order of them all?

Hey, how about Sir John, Earl of Knurl? Yeah, I guess that's kinda weak too.

I think somehow we need to incorporate the word 'floor'.

I'm not much up on the pecking order over there, but I may be so bold as to suggest:

Sir John, Tool Tart
