For all you Myford Super 7 owners, there's a bargain on Ebay. It'll let you change the headstock belt without removing the spindle - just slacken the left hand half off, slide it off the end of the spindle and change belts!

Just send it to the colonies. We are used to fixing all sorts of junk. A splash of weld, a bit of straightening with a big hammer. some JB weld to cover the real weld then paint and bolt it to a bed made of channel iron and we will be right at work. We are so used to doing something with nothing that we can do a lot with a little. Still laughing David Powell.

Thistle, That would be a gap head, I have lot's of experience with those as we have more than a few at work.

And who was it that called eBay a waste land ?

I think an apology is in order.

As an auctioneer once said"everything here has a warranty,it just ran out,if you buy something and it breaks in half I can guarantee that you will receive both pieces":D
