  • Does anyone run a scraping class in the UK?

    I see you guys over the pond have regular scraping classes, and I'm wondering if anyone here in the UK runs such a class. I've asked about for someone to do some work on a bench-top mill base for me and got no takers so I figured it might be just as well if I learned the basics of it myself, then I could also tackle my lathe and Herbert mill when the time comes.

    I could read up and watch some vids on the tube but in my mind you can't beat some good old hands-on tuition.

    If it were me and from your post, I'd certainly pick up a copy of the book Machine Tool Reconditioning. New, their about $90 U.S. While it was last updated in the 1950s, there hasn't been anything else like it written in the English language since. I think the book is well worth the asking price. It is pretty dry to read though. McGyver wrote a really good multi part magazine series about scraping that's well worth reading also. I'd imagine copies could still be ordered from Village Press. Forrest Addy and more than a few other members here can certainly advise you much better than I can. There's also a few commercial DVD's around from people like Richard King. I know just enough about the process to know I need to learn much more.

        Yeah I've watched some of his vids way back when he first posted them. I particularly like this one, which is in fact showing the same part I need worked on and probably the same original technique
