    Most lub guns that are meant to work with oil and zerk fittings will look the same as a grease gun. The difference is how they seal the reservoir that holds your lub. Some guys have modified grease...

    I've seen those spherical fittings on other 1960's and older German made machines. It's made to work with a concave cone shaped lube fitting. The gun would have a pump action neck so that as you...

    In regards to the "grind-your-own" philosophy: I think many turn their nose up at it because it makes perfect sense to "buy what you can. make what you can't."

    BUT

    Ok, I think I've given some mixed info. My 1000ohm potentiometer figure was old notes and I'm not sure where i figured that from. I went back to the VFD connection drawing (sorry it's so blury) and...

    Forgot to add too:

    The machine will have a main power disconnect to turn everything on and off. For a safety, I was also going to add a foot pedal along the front of the lathe that would kill...

    That makes sense. The center tapped pots I'm seeing all have four terminals, so your wiper and V- wire straight to the VFD's terminals, while the VFD's V+ is toggled between V+ (fwd) and V+ (rev).

    Here's the VFD. I know it's old, but it does work, and if I can get the remote control right then replacing it in the future won't be a problem.

    For reference,...

    I've never worked with a center-tapped pot. I've wired pots for VFDs and DC speed controllers that had two speed setting via two pots, and a toggle to switch which was in use by either a single pole...

    Thanks for the replies!

    The VFD is an new-old-stock older model Ace from Boston Gear (I posted awhile back trying to find documentation, to no avail). It does work, but I'd like to keep the design...

    They were every February at a PM members shop near Navasota, but I'm not sure if he or Richard King are planning another there. You might message Richard and see when/where his next Texas class will...
  11. Help with remote speed and direction control for VFD

    I could use some help from some of you electronics wizards on here.

    I'm setting up my 1909 Hendey Engine lathe with a VFD, not for voltage or phase change, but for speed control. The lathe was a...

    Thanks!

    I've honestly approached this lathe the same way out of necessity. From the beginning I knew I wouldn't have time to fully restore it right away and I would need to balance restoring parts...

    Not having power feeds severely limits the machine's capabilities IMO. I think you are on the right track replacing them. You might also get lucky finding used parts from a machine being parted out....

    Cast parallels like these are also used for large surface-plate work and inspecting large machinery when it is commissioned or being rebuilt.

    The center shaft has several sections, one of which could be bound to another. From my experience, grime and dirt don't so much cause wear like an abrasive media, but they keep oil from getting where...

    That's wear from lack of lubrication. Friction sticks the surfaces together and motion rips them apart, causing the snow-ball grooves you see.

    I'd say 1/16" deep is still rebuild-able. I would...

    It sounds like there might be a shaft seized in a bearing. If you still have the top cover off, when in neutral, does the very back shaft and gear assembly spin freely?

    :scratchchin:My wanting eyes are seeing something closer to a 2 1/8x8 thread (2 1/8" being the spindles full OD).

    IF that is the case, I can use it, but will need shipping to Conroe TX (77301).

    Not yet. I'm planing on setting it up with a tachometer and making a stiff non-spring-return lever for the carb so the throttle stays where I put it, but it probably will need a proper governor too...
