I will be investing in to a biax scraper next year.
What sort of price are they ? I have seen them on ebay from time to time, they always sold for good money.
They can fetch 800 plus .
We'll have to ask Aldi to start making them
Lol. They come up for sale often. When the time is right I will indeed be purchasing one.
Wish this part was finished but not yet. Got to make a relief cut then scrape the doves.
I love looking through the old pictures of the Harrison. Cant wait until its finished.
What’s the plan for the bed? Or have you not got that far?
It does look to bad to be honest. I was having a look the other day. There is wear on the bed. The normal tram lines. Will see if I can find a picture. As for my plan.... if it's in need of attention then I might get it ground. But if its minimal then I will just clean it and leave as is....
I will know a lot more once I get the apron and carriage of.
that looks heavier than it sounds
I think the leadscrew in the pic is 2" - 2tpi.
Thats a old one
I like coburn power scrapers, but I would as I apprenticed 200yds from where they were made so thats what the old timers had!
Never used one though, as old george mole (ex Herbert and my mentor)said ‘don’t use that boy you’ll just ruin it quicker’
If I could find a coburn Id sell my biax
Yes 2 -2tpi. I bet it's a heavy lump .
Is there anyone who can still do regrinding ? Cannot be a huge amount of call for it any more ?
Yes, it was being discussed on here not so long ago.
Blue Diamond rings a bell.
Yer blue diamond still do re grind . If I had a 10 ft long camel back that was 350mm wide....I would do it myself.
You don’t need a huge camel back
Five footer ,15” surface plate, a level and basic measuring equipment.
Thats the art of scraping not just matching surfaces.
Mathew look made a you tube video on it under the guidance of a ex craven scraper.
Cut the relief in. And make a start on the tails
