    Way cool! Is the control able to keep up and not pause? When I engrave, I just use Fusion 360 CAM to "Trace" sketched lettering. The control pauses and stutters for sure, but it does not matter since...

    BS about pigeons and rats. Not a problem at all here, and we have both kinds of animals around. What do panels have to do with roof drainage?

    I had to pull my Solar City (now Tesla) system off my house roof recently for a re-roof. The system is 8 years old. I hired a local independent to do it, because Tesla is too big to give me the time...

    Bic Wite-Out correction fluid works really well as a stop for silver brazing. I brush it on and then bake off the water/solvent before final high heat. I’ve never tried it for bronze brazing.

    I bought what appear to be the same 3D-printed wipers for my Chipmaster. They do not fit the ways very well. I am going to roll my own with some felt, rubber, and brass shim.

    This lathe has the same carriage assembly as my 1963 Chipmaster (except left-handed). I don't think those galleries, one of which you say is partially blocked, are for oiling the ways. The galleries...

    I can tell it's mainly the belt, because the sound became a lot louder when I replaced the belt. The new belt is stiffer and has not yet worn to mate with the 60-year-old pulley teeth. It is getting...

    My TSs won't shift sideways if clamped hard, so it's an iterative process. It's educational to see how much a TS moves laterally just from the act of clamping. Even rigid lathes are surprisingly...

    I put a "tenths" DTI against the TS ram and tweak the adjustment screws while watching the DTI. That way, I am not shooting in the dark. Then I take another test cut and check taper.

    The second machine looks like my Hamiton Vari Matic sensitive drill press, albeit much dirtier and missing some parts. Are you sure it is a "hot foil alpha numeric stamper?"

    I use a VFD to drive my Chippie, but the variator is still in place and works. The VFD is mostly there as a phase converter, and I only vary the VFD speed when I need real slow creep speed, like when...

    Got my 1st shot on Wednesday AM at the fairgrounds. They have quite the production going. It's like lining up for the toll booths at the Bay Bridge at rush hour on a Tuesday in 2006. I got Moderna. I...

    1.8 kW is 1800 N*m/s. The broach speed is 8.2 m/min or 0.137 m/s. If the motor and drive were 100% efficient, the pull force delivered at 0.137 m/s to consume 1.8 kW would be 1800/0.137 N = 13,000 N...

    Sounds like you need to review the D200 specs and see what scale inputs it needs, rather than seeing what a SENC150 can dish out. My hunch is that the D200 can accept a huge variety of inputs.

    I hope this happened while actuating the chuck and not when spun up with a workpiece.

    Coolant? Make sure the plastic won't stress-crack from the coolant in combination with retainer screw forces and workpiece clamping forces. May not matter if it cracks if your forces are only from...

    Thanks for that. My manual was missing that diagram, and I was ready to try to find the skinny end of the taper pin and drive it out to take the housing off the shaft. I found the diagram online here.

    Mine jumps partially out of gear sometimes. I attribute it to a weak spring on the detent plunger. Replacing that spring is on my round tuit list.

    It's fairly easy to take a steady meant for another lathe and change the base to fit your ways. It's also fairly easy to roll your own as a weldment. You could get one of these Metal Lathe...

    Chevalier lists their EM1620L as max 91" high, and their brochure picture suggests the upper structure could be taken off to make it shorter than 84". EM1620L / 2033L / 2040L EM1620L-2033L-2040L. At...
