    Holtzapffel Lathes - Ornamental Turning

    From GuythatBrews>>> All this stuff makes me think of my old spirograph. a 3d spirograph is the best way to explain a rose engine lathe to the masses. And by the way, they make a diecast Spirograph that hasn't made its way to my dining room table yet, but they are fun to play with still...

    What is the key to finding a replacement key for a Yakawi 3 mm drill chuck?

    Awander, yes, I'm aware of LH threads... the 16" swing on the Delta Wood Lathe, outboard side is LH thread, I even bought a die and nut to prove it to my husband, as he did not believe me. Thank you for the tip as it relates to my horizontal pearl drilling machine. After asking, here in the...

    What is the key to finding a replacement key for a Yakawi 3 mm drill chuck?

    Nice Guess Larry, it is a pearl drilling machine! I'm drilling 4 holes at 90 degree angles in qty 46 5/32" brass balls. I could easily drill two holes through the 5/32" ball with WW Collets; however, I could not drill the next 2 holes at a pure 90 degree angle in my ww collets on my taig...

    What is the key to finding a replacement key for a Yakawi 3 mm drill chuck?

    ... open the chuck jaws fully and check inside the chuck for a screw holding it to the arbor. I've had the motor dismounted and had the jaws fully opened when I first acquired this little marvel of a machine.... nothing like the incredible equipment most of you have access to...but I had not...

    What is the key to finding a replacement key for a Yakawi 3 mm drill chuck?

    No model number on the chuck, just the mfg name and 3 m/m. I'm guessing that m/m means millimeters, the 1/8" brass worked fine for the hole in the chuck. The chuck is attached to a motor spindle. The motor spindle measures .250 diameter, according to my Mitutoya dial calipers. I didn't...

    What is the key to finding a replacement key for a Yakawi 3 mm drill chuck?

    MSCDirect has a warehouse 7 miles away, and the price is $56.55... I'll mail order; McMaster's price is $3.19...at least this is a more educated guess then me buying a lot of chuck keys. Otherwise it is plan B - replace the chuck, but if pressed fit, I don't know how to knock it off - maybe I...

    What is the key to finding a replacement key for a Yakawi 3 mm drill chuck?

    I used a 1/8" brass rod and a pair of pliers to tighten and loosen my tiny chuck, which works, but eventually I will scratch the chuck with my pliers, and I really need to replace my drill bit. What do I count to figure out which key to chase? I contacted Yakiwa - Seiko Usa on March 21, 2024...

    Hobby Lathe Question

    My husband told me to not buy the Dremel Lathe, and I did it anyway. He called it a Fisher Price lathe, and I got the silent treatment. He was right. If you are in the USA, buy Sherline or Taig. I still own it, to remind myself that I've learned a few things That spindle is worthless...

    Re-Threading Outboard spindle on Delta DL40 Wood Lathe

    I do have the OEM Faceplate, and it does screw on left hand thread on the outboard side. There were 4 accessories for the lathe sitting to the right on a bench and the faceplate that is painted the same color as the lathe, works on the outboard side. I am better educated. In terms of safety...

    Re-Threading Outboard spindle on Delta DL40 Wood Lathe

    I'm at home, the lathe is in the shop; the shop is at a different address... that is why I am guessing that the faceplate is LH and RH threaded. I never knew that a faceplate could be LH and RH threaded. This is still a revelation for me. This seller took great care of his tools... I've...

    Re-Threading Outboard spindle on Delta DL40 Wood Lathe

    I don't want to use a triangular file by hand to clean up the threads on the outboard side of the spindle by hand; I'm not afraid of handwork, but it isn't my lathe to mess up. It seems reasonable that you would use a UNC left hand re-threading carbon steel die. I looked up a die on MSCDirect...

    Re-Threading Outboard spindle on Delta DL40 Wood Lathe

    I did wonder, since it was on the outboard side that it was left hand thread - I will download the manual before I order the die and read it. I found it on the vintage machinery website.... Is the length of the spacer 1.975" ? 1.0" + .630" thickness would equal 1.630" OD? Thanks for telling...

    Metal lathe to wood lathe?

    I would suggest some rust remover first...All that rust would make me crazy. I just bought Evaporust for a trial run for an accessory I just bought online. Quart was inexpensive at HF for my test. Husband has a Delta DL40 with speed controller (I think the controller needs some help) and I...

    Re-Threading Outboard spindle on Delta DL40 Wood Lathe

    Before I look to replace the lathe spindle, I thought I should try rethreading it. I did read a cautionary note on the AAW forum, that there are two spacers.... so I will look for those, I can machine them in theory of my metal lathe. This lathe has had minimal use by us since our...

    Linseeed oil floor finish

    I've never used Linseed oil on anything, but we received a sample of Waterlox at a woodworking show, and I tried it on cherry as my test. (THis is a small sample) In 2019 we used it to refinish floors in our parents' home before my sister moved in, and it has been a beautiful floor finish and...
