    Craig, when you say platform over the headstock do you mean a shelf that bolts over the top? Mine has one of those. I don't have the second post but have an Algra ( dickson clone ) and an extra...

    The OPs motor is 8/4 pole so the 2 pole concern is irrelevant. I still think there are external connections necessary to jump the leads if both speeds are wanted from the vfd but I'd just deal with...

    Thanks, Bilmac. Here is my set up. The flange could serve for the reader if the four holes don't mess up the readings. I think the flange is also the bearing adjustment. There is a set screw that...

    Although the Fugi MRA is dual voltage, are you sure the motor has two separate windings rather than a Dahlander connection that disengages four poles ? If the motor is a Dahlander, the need to...

    What did you use for the optical tape? How many divisions did you use? I've got a tachulator with rpm and sfm. Thanks, Dave

    I think the question was why the holder and lathe are fine with 60 degree inserts but can't produce with 55 degree inserts assuming the thread range is correct. i have Whitworth machines so am...

    I'd also look at the cam action. The old ones open without the cam elongating if you know what I mean. some of the clones open the cam more, maybe to allow for some variation in the holder splines....

    I'm far from an expert but I can get you started. The original Minder posts will be engraved. they are the gold standard and were made until 1974. The next version was made by Mivesa, also Swiss...

    you didn't specify USD or Canadian dollar but if your budget can handle it, the S and B is a fine machine. Parts are hard to find and sourcing them from UK is expensive so the price isn't as bad as...

    When dealing with bevels on a table saw, the angle indicator will only be correct when the full moon is over the equator so check it against something else. The rip fence also needs to be parallel...

    For what it is worth, I emailed Maritool with a question about ordering a $150 tool. In my experience, few emails get responses because most are fishing and a waste of time but I got two responses...

    There is a lesson here for companies. Sell decent stuff and screw up an order and you end up in the Internet ditch. Sell crap stuff but have good customer service who will send you replacement crap...

    I had forgotten that you included that drawing. It came through so small in the text i missed it. That should be all I need. I believe my bar is 1/8-3/16 shorter than the original and was...
  15. I looked at the draw bar collar and have a couple...

    I looked at the draw bar collar and have a couple more questions. My bar was remade and i suspect the length changed making the collar non functional. The 1.875 bore into the spindle depth seems...
  16. I should be good. The bore on the bearing end...

    I should be good. The bore on the bearing end should be more shallow so the collar doesn't seat on the wheel, the the bore on the other end needs to clear the 1.875 spindle.

    I see why you mounted...
  17. I took the bar apart and the thrust bearing is...

    I took the bar apart and the thrust bearing is good. I cleaned up the brazing. The extra washer is to pinch the bearing against the spindle to secure the collet. It works but not as it should be...

    I've figured out what I need for now so thanks all for the help. Dave
  19. Thanks. the only other measurement I can think...

    Thanks. the only other measurement I can think of is the distance from the collar to the end of the bar. I have been told it is 515mm or 20.28". If yours matches that or is slightly different, I'd...

    I have a 1" blade holder for the dickson T2 size and looking for a recommendation for the 1024 carbide insert parting tool to go with a smaller HSS so I will have one of each. A specific number...

    I looked at the video again and the only dimension I have is the larger outer diameter of 3.75". If you could give me any critical dimensions ( I don't need a good drawing, just some measurements )...

    I'll stay with the original plan for now but good to know that three speeds can be programmed into the drum switch. My machine had the original Santon removed and replaced with a cobbled up two...

    I didn't see the earlier pictures and yes I think the small washer is a replacement. I will look this weekend to make sure the thrust bearing is still inside the inner collar. If so, the large...

    Thanks. I think I can get enough dimensions from the video. Is 1018 or something cheaper OK as there doesn't seem to be strength requirement. 3.5" diameter 1018 varies in price here in US from...

    I watched a shed made video where he tore apart his drawbar and it looks like I'm missing at least the large steel collar. Could you send a picture of yours to verfy. Here is...
