    Reworking Savage Barrel and Chamber

    I think I've finished this project. The gouge was deeper than anticipated. I had judged depth by the fired cases. So, instead of .200, we ended up taking .400 off. Pushed the reamer with a dead center in the tailstock (blasphemy to some, I'm guessing) in .010 increments. I reamed first...

    Reworking Savage Barrel and Chamber

    Thanks. I'll scratch out a pusher and see what happens.

    Reworking Savage Barrel and Chamber

    I've started into this, and would like some suggestions on how to proceed. I bought a barrel kit and a used finish reamer. My plan is to try to salvage the original barrel by cutting the breech back and re-chambering. Finally got my barrel off. It was tight. Fashioned some oak jaws and...

    Reworking Savage Barrel and Chamber

    When I bought this, the burr at the gouge was so bad, I couldn't chamber a round. I got that out with a piece of emery cloth on a stick. I can get a Shaw kit for $229. It comes with the wrench and Go/No go which I need. Wrench is $25+ No/no go are $25+ each. I'll probably buy the kit. Rent or...

    That won't open the chamber up too much?

    Reworking Savage Barrel and Chamber

    I've got a 112v chambered in .243 Winchester.

    Reworking Savage Barrel and Chamber

    Haven't taken the barrel to measure, but the brass has about a .001" hump. That's right around .20 I'd have to sink it to get the barrel turns correct. I was thinking about buying one of the Shaw barrel kits since I don't have a wrench or go gauges. If I booger the original barrel, I'll have...

    Reworking Savage Barrel and Chamber

    I've got a 243 Savage barrel with a gouge in the chamber. I was able to polish the burs out of it. However the gouge is deep enough it hinders extraction considerably. The barrel has a target block mounted for a target scope, which I use. I think my next move is to deepen the chamber. To...

    7.5 Hp 3 Phz Compressor on 1 Phz power

    I ended up with a "free" 10 HP compressor and a 25 HP 3-phase motor and 1 1/2 HP pony. I ended up sinking a couple hundred more bucks in wiring and parts/pieces to come up with a functioning rotary converter. The good news is that it works. I rarely use a lot of air. If I were running it...

    Hobart Cyber Tig - CT300 Anyone have a manual?

    Thanks. Looks like the different Programmer drawers had separate instructions. I had used that manual in the past to build the remote jumper that I was missing. Anyone have instructions for a 300 Series programmer drawer?

    Hobart Cyber Tig - CT300 Anyone have a manual?

    I've had one of these for a couple of years and have used it for a stick machine. Looking to try and start tig-ing with it. Does anyone have a user's manual for this ancient beast? I'm trying to make sure I know what all the "flippy switches" do. Thanks very much.

    Pony Motor Question - 25 HP RPC

    I'll report back with what the amp clamp says. Hopefully I'll have time to do some set up this weekend if my parts all come in.

    Pony Motor Question - 25 HP RPC

    I hated phase angles in school. Good point. When I ran it, I had it wired up temporary for a function test on the compressor/motor. I wanted to make sure it wasn't DOA before I put any more work into it. I'll get it set into place and wired in. Then I'll re-check voltage and check amperage...

    Pony Motor Question - 25 HP RPC

    245 volts on the non-generated leg. 238 volts on th e generated legs. All with the compressor unloaded. Prior to running true load motor, the converter was running 262 volts on the generated legs.

    Pony Motor Question - 25 HP RPC

    Did a preliminary balance on the RPC. Unloaded amps came in at 8.5. I fired the compressor (unloaded) and it looks like I'll need to do a bit more balancing. The coil for my motor starter is bad (used). I've got a new one on the way. I had 200 uF on one leg and 400 uF on the other.

    Pony Motor Question - 25 HP RPC

    I've got a small tank to install on the pressure switch line to let me run unloaded for a bit.

    Pony Motor Question - 25 HP RPC

    I'm going to run (attempt) a 10HP compressor on it. I know that may come with it's own issues. I've currently got everything in a steel enclosure. My additional capacitors came yesterday. I'll string it up with #12 and report back after I get it balanced and load test it. Thanks again.

    Pony Motor Question - 25 HP RPC

    Thanks. That's a big help. SO.. I'm currently running from a distribution block to my Idler, Capacitor bank, and out to my load. But, I'm running out of taps. I can hook two 100uF capacitors (13.3 ohms) in parallel on a 14 Ga THHN (rated for 25 amps) back to the distribution block. This x 2...

    Thanks. Been a while since I was in an EE class. 400uF.

    Pony Motor Question - 25 HP RPC

    Currently my phase converter is on a 60 AMP single phase breaker (may be small depending on my load, I know). I've wired it with #6 THHN because that's what I had on hand. I figure that's good for up to a 75 Amp breaker. From there power runs thru a large definite purpose relay (no overloads)...
