    Re: Drilling 50mm holes.

    Ah! Goldie Hawn. Went on the better things, I think. I used to look forward to that show. I suspect we are similarly dated ;)

    Hmm.. the flag pole wouldn't have any relation to the (dare I mention it?) Brexit outcome? ;)

    Re: Drilling 50mm holes.

    Aha! The old flag at the top of the pole trick! Verry interestink! - to quote "Laugh In". (Ironhead will understand the reference, even if the Brits don't :))

    Re: Drilling 50mm holes.

    A good trick, which I've used on occasions.

    I was thinking along the lines of a shaft having to go thru the 2 bosses, which might be separated by some unknown distance. Unless they are aligned,...

    Re: Drilling 50mm holes.

    A nice piece of work zaza! I'm surprised the oil didn't lubricate the teeth so much they stopped cutting! Don't be concerned about the hole saw going blunt. It is just a circular hacksaw blade after...

    Re: Drilling 50mm holes.

    Sounds like you are pretty close to starting work. As I understand, there are hole saws for timber, and different ones for steel. Certainly a different tooth arrangement is found on holesaws for...

    Re: Drilling 50mm holes.

    Only two words necessary: hole saw :):)

    (run it as slow as possible, plenty of cutting fluid from a small hand sprayer, you'll be through in no time!)

    Re: Help! MF1455E round baler problem.

    I think the problem is solved! A good sleep, fresh eyes this a.m., and I noticed that the bottom end of the bale tensioning spring on one side was connected to the wrong hole. There are two - and I...

    Help! MF1455E round baler problem.

    MF765 - I've never heard of it!

    Is this a rare tractor? A genuine made-in - England MF765. I've never heard of it. The ad. says industrial, 1961 so I presume it follows the form factor for the MF65 - a second clue being the "765"...

    Fordson crawler puzzle?

    Is this a hybrid? Side valve petrol/kero engine with the same thermosyphon cooling as the Dagenham Fordsons, but with a starter - and a crawler to boot.
