HI Bess :)

Yes that's a bril bit of kit :)

But its diameter limited. I have one and I think it will only do up to about 25mm. I only use it for copper etc. Must confess that I never thought of a stainless blade

Just thought this might be of interest. I find it a good way to get a square cut on pipe.
Just mark the pipe, put a jubilee clip around it and cut upto the clip. Before you do the clip up tight turn it around a couple of times to make sure its as square as possible. May not be 100% perfect but better than I can do "freehand".
I find that a fine 24tpi blade does the cleanest cut, without scraping away the side of the clip.

Hi all :)

Hi.
Thanks for that, it gives a bit more clarity to the Pay Pal situation. I've used it for years and must confess not really aware of its limitations.

I have a block that I put under the front wheel Then all I have to do is put the centre stand down and gently roll the bike backward. But not at the pub---I reckon my little remaining street cred would vanish.. BUT If it suits you then do it

Take care

Hi :)

Brief follow up. The spindle that I have is  7:1/16th long   and 11/16th diameter. Thread =22TPI. If you think its right and want to try it  I'm happy to send it for the postage. If its not what you just send it back. I'll have a quick check around for a sensible equivalent price.

Hi.

I have just found a spindle in amongst my bits. It is most probably BSA but I don't have a clue which one. Definitely Not A series. If you can let me have your required dimensions I'll check it out to see if its any good to you. As far as I can see its brand new and I vaguely remember buying it in error some time back in the Roman ages. (But then everything is "vaguely" so it could have been last week)
