Ordered one of these and also a cover for filler probe on the stirup pump, both in black Delrin, they arrived today and both fit perfecctly.
Highly recommend a good service from Lightning22 :D

Just a gentle 'bump to the top' for some of our newer members to notice 8-)

Nice to see someone supporting a chap who spends a lot of time in an Ambulance (as a medical professional!) who makes this stuff as a sideline/hobby.

Thanks Iain,

I've just upgraded my lathe to a Myford and the first thing I've made on it was........ an FX plug.

I pulled one of the orings off of my fill plug because, I had a leak in the fill port
and it pretty much pressurized the fill plug between the orings and made it really
hard to get out...1 oring on the end works fine and it doesn't fall out...

That sounds like a slow leak at the Filler Valve! Very easy to sort out & there are a couple of threads on here showing what to do.

My advice would be:
Always take care not to damage the filler channel when attempting to remove the cylinder end cap (plastic pipe round a screwdriver shaft, maybe).
Don't overtighten on re-assembly (that's 'Polar's tip really ;) ).
