    I'd fit the VFD and keep an eye out for a spare. If there's insulation degradation it's bound to be a function of time and use so your lightly-used home shop mill motor will probably out-last the...

    That's nice. I wonder what is the purpose of the 'horn' cast into the end of the sliding table?

    Go back to the original RPC and ensure that it still powers the MG up correctly. If it does then check it's earthing properly and if it is then check the wiring arrangement on the bigger one.

    I use open gear lube on mine. In a pinch I would use chain lube. A single tin of open gear spray lube would probably last the lathe (or the operator) a lifetime.

    Nice. Was it you that bought the swivelling table on Homeworkshop? Fairly priced for the condition I thought.

    Yes, looking at all the pics it's virtually all there and I think the slide is connected to the pin. Looks like even the Jarno spindle adapter is present. I love the double-stacked cross slide that...

    Thanks for the catalogue link John. They list a quick-retract for threading so I expect that's exactly what the lever under the cross slide screw is. They also list plain- and elevating compound...
  9. Big old Pratt & Whitney with unidentified features

    My friend just bought this lathe and sent me some pics. It's a big old P&W about 10' long and something like 3 tons, reportedly from the early 1900's. It's in remarkable condition for such an age and...

    Thanks Neilho,

    I've just found a catalogue page that agrees with my measurements for the 723 series. 14v/krpm tacho and 35v/krpm motor voltage constants. It quotes the max speed and voltage as...
  11. What's the likely spec of this Electro-Craft DC servo?

    I've had this servo motor for a while and want to utilise it but I cannot find any catalogue info so I'm asking if anyone could tell me what would be the likely maximum input voltage it should be...

    My 10ee had the most dreadful paintwork but the machine itself was in fine condition despite of it. No-one bid on it except me because of the apparent state. Fresh paint would have improved the sale...

    If you sand, grind or fly cut the base of the tailstock it's going to be low compared to the headstock.

    Orientate the shafts so the holes are at the high point then oil will run down the hole to soak the felt. Otherwise it will just run back out.

    I have a very used and grubby HLV-H/TFB-H parts manual for the Feltham machines starting with serial No 100. It's almost complete with only page 1 missing (which I'm guessing is the cover).

    The fault is not with the gun, but with the person however having a loaded gun can empower a person to do things he would otherwise not consider.

    Whatever the reason it's seems like a problem endemic to the design. I'm currently fixing the same issue on my machine by scraping it all flat.

    Thanks for that, I was hoping that someone would come back with this kind of answer since it confirms what Paolo surmised - the bend is from many clamping/unclamping acts rather than unstable...

    No idea at all. The quick-retract was very tight I put it down to old oil and needing a clean-up.

    HLV compound base banana shaped

    I'm scraping the top parts of my HLV and thought I would share this. I removed the pivot ring from the compound slide base and stuck it on my plate. It rattled a bit on the ends so I stoned it for...
