    Hi John,

    It seems like you're getting to the bottom of it. As I've been following this, my thought kept going to a wedged gib. If you point me to the Turcite you need, I will get it and ship it to...

    Thanks for that perspective JZ. I'd not realized that all the holders were not interchangeable. That's certainly something to carefully consider as these systems are a rather large investment!

    This is for the "A" size and it is used. As you said, I don't believe the new ones listed at Pen Tool are actually Swiss made. Although they do say "Swiss" so maybe they are. It's difficult to tell....
  5. Fair Price for a Swiss Multifix Tool Post?

    Hi all,

    I have an opportunity to buy a real Swiss Multifix tool post, but it's expensive... Really more than I wanted to pay, but I've wanted one for a while. Can you guys give me a reasonable...

    I continue to get my new HLV-H sorted. She's running great and cleaning up pretty well. Funny thing happened last night. I was running the spindle at slow speed and had the threading tumbler in the...

    To begin with I tried stoning them, but they were actually quite far out of flat. So much so that I was worried I'd stone in some oddball angle and screw things up more. I took off as little as...

    OK, I promised I'd go into detail about this. When I bought this lathe I knew there was a problem with the brake. it buzzed very loudly, but was otherwise working. I figured I'd clean up the solenoid...

    I'm happy to report that I got this issue sorted. It involved milling all the connecting faces in the solenoid down to be perfectly flat and exposing fresh laminations. My unit was badly damaged from...

    Thanks for the tip about coating the threads on the round adjustment nut... I'll do that.

    Not having the brake is not that big of a deal to me honestly... I'm just the kind of person who wants...

    I suspect that the damage was caused by the broken bolts. When I got the machine both bolts that hold the solenoid in place were sheared off and the device was flopping around inside its housing. I...

    I repaired the crack in the copper loop, but the noise continues. If anything it's worse. I'm wondering if this solenoid is just plain worn out???

    No problem. Actually that link was quite useful as I called them and they can supply a complete solenoid. That's the good news... Bad news is it's an 18 week lead time with a $475 bill. Thank you for...

    Thank you Bill! I don't see any copper loops at all in the plunger. Are you referring to the copper loops in the part below? I didn't see it at first, but there actually is a very small crack in one...

    Good eye!!! I checked that out and as far as I can tell those homes have never seen a bolt. They seem to be welded or otherwise bonded together. I clamped them and the noise continued.

    Hahaha... Fair enough. I'll make sure to have a seat before he tells me. I certainly don't expect them to be cheap, but there are limits for sure.
