    Agree. I have a Mitutoyo KA 2 axis DRO on my mill. I rely on that to tell the absolute movement of the table on the X axis. If I didn't already have the ball screws, I wouldn't bother, but there they...

    I don't ever do production or volume work but do power tap on occasion with my mill. I've always started the tap and powered it to the desired depth and then stop the motor. Then I reverse and back...

    There seems to be a lot of undue worry about unwanted table movement with manual machines when fitted with ball screws.

    When I make long cuts on my mill on the X axis (has ball screws as...

    There are rats in every trade. There are some people, often in supervisory roles, with whom its impossible to reason or deal with. I had such a boss for more than ten years. The only cure for a rat...

    As I mentioned to Tyrone, I don't use the locks when moving the table. Banana indeed.:willy_nilly:

    It could happen, but I've not had the problem. I wouldn't use the locks if I were power feeding so it's just a matter of being careful. It's a matter of situational awareness.

    OTOH, the 10X50...

    My 1987 Taiwan Webb 4VH 10 X 50 mill (3,500#) came to me with ball screws and servo motors but no computer. It had been a factory CNC modification that had quit working, The machine was very sound...

    That would be a Non-Competition Agreement. (NCA), They have to be reasonable, If they are limited in time and area, say not working in the same city for a year or two, that might be OK, but forever?...

    If your machine is a Webb, there is a Webb company online that would have most of your parts. They had everything that I needed when I was refurbishing my Webb.

    Correct. It may be Taiwan-made but it doesn't look like a Webb. I have a Webb 4VH and the base shown in the picture is completely different.

    It it is a Webb, it's much older than my 1987 model.

    Since installations and power requirements will vary, it's likely that removal of run caps was done for balancing. Keep in mind that you can run an RPC with no capacitors whatsoever if you have a...

    Why not? In California if it's either stationary or moves, even a little, they will tax it.

    Yep, California is no fun anymore. I just paid $250 to license my 22 year old truck. That's about the same that I paid 22 years ago when it was new. Sure glad I don't have a new one. I can't imagine...

    Don't know about a replacement, but if it is pure aluminum, it's possible that it could be welded once the lining is removed. Just a thought......

    That said, if it's pot metal, no cigar.

    I also saw it in Long Beach. I attended a conference on the Queen Mary and we toured the museum. We got to go inside of the ship in the cockpit. That was quite a sight. Hughes was an amazing fellow.

    I agree that quality taps will make the difference. I buy my taps from local machine shop supply. They typically come with three flutes and are much stringer and better than the hardware store types ...

    I agree that you will be better off looking for a replacement reverse-induction motor.

    My only experience with R-E motors came about in 1971 when my Dad and I bought a vintage Parks 4 X 12" Wood...

    I didn't say that it can't be done.Sure, pressure vessels can be welded on. It's only good if they never blow up, however. If one that you worked on does happen to blow, you would be named in the...
