    Reid 2B questions

    Steve,

    I have a 2B I am working on. I have no idea when you posted the above but I would very much like to start a conversation with you concerning the cross feed mechanism on the grinder, if you...

    I've got it up and running now. Thanks everybody, and especially Richard King.
  3. Quick question about Moore Jig Bore no. 1...need an owners help.

    The manual states that there is a square head screw which adjusts the quill housing spring, this accessible from the left side of the machine at the quill housing clamp. I believe this screw enters...
  4. Thanks, Richard. They are a two speed motor with...

    Thanks, Richard. They are a two speed motor with a GE controller...use 3 buttons (off, hi, low). I’ve got a friend who is a retired electrical engineer coming in and just thought the diagram would...

    Ryan,

    I am trying to get my Moore Jig Bore 1 up and running. Could you possibly share with me the wiring diagram? The heavy part is that I have a friend coming today to help me out, so if you...

    13" x 4' SB 113A Lathe Value

    Beautiful condition, I think original paint. This belonged to a friend who passed a couple of years ago and I've been asked to sell his equipment. The lathe has a couple of chucks plus the collet...
  8. A learning experience...coolant tanks and pumps...

    I feed my Logan 14x40 with a 9 gallon Graymills pump/tank system. This sits on the floor under the lathe. Having had it there for a number of years, I recently moved the lathe and tank and was...

    New Building

    Good on you.

    I'm in Tennessee, and a friend from Wisconsin urged me to install in floor heat (recirculating hot water) but I thought "in the south?" He was right as rain. I'd been in Atlanta for...
  10. Praise for top-notch technical support for DRO

    So I have been fighting with a lathe which has been fighting back. I'll spare you all the gory details, but to say that it ate a couple of old DROs I had. I had another digital read out to go and...

    OK, so I met a new friend and smart man today, a member of this list, who dropped by my shop and helped me take on these problems. The bottom line is that we have come to two conclusions: Firstly,...

    And now I realize my v/o meter won't measure ac amperage. Still, I'll do what I can with what I've got. I'll run to Lowes or similar for an ammeter later.
  13. OK, friends. I got the cover off of the...

    OK, friends. I got the cover off of the connection box on the main lathe motor (spindle motor...the only other one is the coolant pump motor, which I have left turned off for all of these tests).

    I've got an email in to RotoPhase (I have to run to town and didn't necessarily want them calling) with some questions. Unfortunately, that was not one of them...not that I couldn't look. As I...

    I've checked the tansformers "outs". All of them are a little high (28 at the 26, now moved to the 24, and 124 at the 115), to be expected with the higher than normal current I seem to have here at...
  16. Will check the currents. The brake is...

    Will check the currents. The brake is disconnected when current is removed, this verified by the fact that I can easily spin the spindle with it disconnected and also the spindle has to motor down...

    15 horse converter running a 7.5 hp lathe. But the converter does say 45 FLA.

    I am physically incapable, by myself, of starting the lathe whilst taking the measurement. Will have to wait until I...
  18. I'll check in the AM, Newton.

    I'll check in the AM, Newton.
  19. Phase converter voltage issues I THINK causing problems with new lathe. Please read!

    Larger breaker, I meant.
  20. Agreed on the 24 and 26, and from the diagram...

    Agreed on the 24 and 26, and from the diagram (first one posted, first page of posts) that it SHOULD be to the 24. I'll bring that up with Romi. That said, I believe that feeds the disc brake,...
  21. If you can tell me how (which wires) to check on...

    If you can tell me how (which wires) to check on the 24 volt unit, I will, Newton. That said, I have disabled the brake (which this operates) and ended up with the same results.

    Photos of the electrical box.

    You'll have to translate your meaning of that first line, Newton.

    I will do what I can to get at the box.

    The history is that the machine was built in 2001. It was bought by a man who was apparently a very good engineer and had set up a new shop but who had a...

    Newton,

    Despite what the drawing may lead you to believe, it is NOT that easy to get inside the connection box. Believe me, I tried to do it today. I will try again tomorrow but in all...
