I'm really impressed. Nice work Bob.

I like the box too.  The question is who is going to find something worse for the DTI Challenge 2022?

And I said that I'd have binned it!

Well done Bob.

Inspired by your efforts I took a faulty 0.001" DTI apart and found that the rod designed to stop the spindle rotating had sheared off flush with the spindle. I have some watchmakers slitting files and managed to slot the broken off part (cutting slightly into the spindle) and unscrew it. It was threaded 10 BA so a new part was easily made and I now have one more useful DTI in my collection.

Yeah, well.. that's not strictly true... Just ask the Lister LR1 engine I went to "fix" (currently in pieces in a bucket); or the Jag XJS I was fixing (took it apart, it's been apart for 7 years now)....

Cheers!

Nice work Bob as usual !

Now Ade, you know an XJS needs time to mature properly and for the penetrating oil to penetrate properly. Another years or two should do it,
