    Post Gday There Everyone

    I'm a new (old) bloke from the Newcastle area. After 40 yrs in business retired a couple of years ago and trying to relearn some skills from trade school days. Bought a Hercus 9" model A and trying to gather information on maintenance and use.

    Welcome aboard.

    An ex Novacastrian myself.
    Did an apprenticeship with the then “Shortland County Council”, back in the day.
    These days I only touch tools for my own satisfaction. Motorbikes and Metal work. (And “Practical” wood work when required)

    I’m ecstatic that I can now weld Aluminium, currently moving to a bigger shed, with rooms for a lathe….

    Welcome Garry!


    Hercus maintenance?
    Like any machine, keep it clean, and give it lots of oil

    (and read the threads in the Hercus area: https://metalworkforums.com/f189 )
