I tried to change the gears on my lathe to cut thread. After some careful dismounting and mounting, I found out I had no idea what I was doing :roll:
Somebody please help,

Wait, plastic gears? :shock:

For cutting threads the carriage needs to move pretty far with each rotation of the chuck, so I guess you need to mount a larger primary and smaller secondary gear :roll:

Yeah... At least some of them.
They sell metal gear set for replacement for around 50 euro, I may buy them but so far the plastic gears have shown no wear so I'm not in a hurry :lol:

What short of ignition should I use for a candy rocket? I need something simple so I can explain to my classmates who are not interested at all and hopefully does not involve high voltage...

match heads and a small length of nichrome wire, even a 9V battery will do it.

Nichrome it is then.
I'd use a fuse if it's just for me to launch, but as it's for others to watch as well I need at least a push buttom :D

I've given you the top link in a different thread, the tool link is on that page under the heading 'Design'! :roll:

The 2nd link is the insulation page, read it carefully so you don't need to make 10 more post asking how...

Anybody knows what's the difference between the co2 and the green gas magazine for WE open bolt M4/scar?
The co2 cost 10 euro more than the green gas ones and only work after I raise the pressure pass 800 psi. The propane's max pressure is below 200 psi, how will the green gas mag work??
Edit:
Check this out! http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index ... 100AA3c9yl
The guy said green gas(propane) is much more powerful than co2, LOL

Well besides the obvious? What differences do you want or need? For running HPA into it I'd recommend Green Gas, so you can run 50-160PSI, which I assume is easier to get with regulators. Also if you sell it to someone with a CO2 rig instead, they can use a more common regulator.

Regarding suggestions too, my mate just bought a 1200rd motorised [female doggy] bucket (hicap), any chance you could make a converted version with one of those? If you can, I can get a bit of business through me.

8) Ahah, right on time. I've just managed a way to convert a drum mag+gas mag combo :mrgreen:
Gottcha, the advantage of a co2 it's just that you can use standard paintaball tank reg.

Works just fine if you have the files you need...Google is your friend. I bet it's a missing .ocx or .ocs I forget.
