    Anyone with a lathe willing to take on a small project?

    I need a modified threaded cap made, it needs to be bored and threaded to take a adjuster screw, the original and adjuster screw are pictured below so Im hopeing a member with a home machine shop may be willing to take it on.

    Whoops havent checked for replies for a while. Im in Melbournes south east, Dandenong area but I dont think distance is an issue, postage can take care of that. At the moment Ive handed it to a model engineering club member to have a go, that was a couple of weeks ago, Im hoping he will come through shortly or I will have to make another arrangement.
    Regards
    Ted

    Cheers

    A couple of quick shots showing the result
    First is of the new cap made to accomodate the supplied adjuster screw, the spacer was needed to make up the distance to reach the ball, this works well as it locates the ball nicely, the ball shown is the original 9/16" stainless ball. The original cap is also shown.
    Second shows it in situ, with the group yet to be attached to the machine.
    The group now has flow control :)
    (P.S. this little thread probably should be with the Vintage Extreme Machine thread)
