    Drill a hole in the stud (preferably, using a left hand drill since it can be sufficient to unscrew the stud if you're lucky). Then tap a left hand thread inside the stud and use a left hand screw to...

    Nothing's wrong, I guess. You bought a used chuck with the mounting plate , used it and now you're trying to sell it to your fellow forum members as being the original owner for 3x times of what you...

  6. Wanted: Black Diamond drill grinder bushings and collets

    I have Model BW-90A, but I think the bushings and collets are interchangeable between different models.

    At this time I need, at least, a 1/4" bushing (preferably, 9/16" OD), but I'd be glad if you...

    I'm not trying to tell you what to do. I genuinely wanted to know why you stated this because, as Jim explained above, the need to rewire or eliminate machines' own control is one of the main...

    I'd just buy a 10hp RPC panel (mine is from WNY Supply: they are decently priced and very well built) and purchase a used/rebuilt low rpm motor from a local motor repair shop or any other source. Low...

    My question was addressed to WHHJR who has multiple 3-phase machines equipped by VFDs. He stated that he did so to "KEEP the Original Controls". I guess he meant to "PRESERVE the Original Controls"...

    Yes, the drive was successfully fed by a single phase power by the previous owner. Naturally, it was de-rated from 10HP to 5HP. And he disabled phase loss alarm.

    Good point on the control...

    You lost me here. Could you please elaborate on how it is better to keep machine controls with VFDs vs. RPC or 3-phase service?

  14. Connecting single phase to a VFD designed for 3-phase input

    I'm going to feed single phase 230V to a new to me TB Wood's 10HP VFD designed for 3-ph input.
    The manual, although quite good, doesn't have any schematic diagrams or suggestions on how to do it...

    :) True.

    Especially considering that this particular site serves its own images uploaded by users, so PB or any other services are not needed at all.

    I don't remember how I did it, but it wasn't difficult at all.

    I was as pissed as any of you, and my first reaction was to send them to the hell. At this point I downloaded all my content and...

    They are, usually, called steady rests. But I saw "center rest" name in some old literature too.

    I must admit that using "center rest" in the title may attract more hits. I was one of those who...

    I don't know at what point they started to demand payment for downloading. I was able to download all my albums in one shot when they started playing dirty games a year ago or so.

    Yes, it is. But, frankly, if something was given to you for free for many years, asking to pay at some point is hardly an extortion. Despite the fact it feels like it, indeed. :)
