    There was a Butler planer where i served my time, it used to be a marine engineers, but that work had gone and was just a general engineers shop. I only seen it used once or twice. I have seen pictures online of them with grinding heads mounted on them.

    I’ve seen Keith Rucker do tonnes of stuff and thought, hang on that’s a bit of a shortcut, or that isn’t quite true is it. He is one of those who touts accuracy and restoration and then settles for that’s good enough.

    well either do it right or don’t film it and say full restoration of XYZ.

    generally though I do enjoy his videos although you can fast forward through a lot of them.

    I watched one of his videos, when he was cutting a spur gear on a horizontal mill. How to know the cutter is in the middle or centreline of the gear blank on the dividing head ? Eyeball it :rolleyes:, "Yeah that looks like its in the centre".

    Good to see proper manufacturing and toolmaking still in England in this day and age.

    I wonder will there still be old boys in sheds messing around with old machine tools, cars, clunky old motorbikes and steam engines in fifty years, or will we be a distant memory that no one cares about ?

    it will pretty much die out because there wont be the gear about like there used to be . most times the father has all the gear and the interest is passed on to his kids and have a keen interest in making things. my older brother got me interested when I started on motorbikes then I went to evening classes with my mate workshop practice :)you could use the lathes milling machines surface grinders and all the gear in the fab shop and shown how to use it if u didn't know then over the years collect all the gear for your own workshop :)

    A startling and sobering fact is there will be no G8 country from the western world in the next few decades. America, Germany, the UK etc will all be well down the list of richest countries.
