    Incorrect control voltage to VFD, 5 hp CNC mill

    As the title suggests I am having a problem with an incorrect voltage to the VFD on my vertical CNC mill. I thought it was a torque problem and posted about that twice and now after much research and testing I have narrowed the problem down to the voltage signal that controls the motor rpm. It...

    #4 morse taper sticks in spindle?

    Not exactly machine reconditioning but I thought the experts here might be able to help. I have a new to me Erlo drill press with a #4 morse taper spindle and the Rohm drill chuck that came with the machine (nice) becomes very stuck in the spindle after drilling even a small hole. The machine...

    Bend longer part in sections?

    If you only had a two foot long press brake and needed to bend up a 90° on some 14 or 16 gauge material and the piece was 4' long, would it work to do it in sections? Same question applies if you have an 8' brake and need to bend a 10' long piece. I assume it could be done but need to know...

    Plasma cut parts - big divot normal?

    Here is a pic of some parts I just had cut at a local major steel supplier. They have a very expensive plasma setup. When I complained that the large divot meant I had to weld and grind they said, “Sorry that is normal at the start and finish, order oversize and machine to size”. This does not...
