    I have one lathe with the scale on the carriage and one lathe with the scale on the cross slide. It makes no difference to operation. You might have to change the counting direction in the...

    Did you ask on the Fusion forum? The posters are usually responsive and the answers are clear if the question is clear (which yours is).

    Does this mean he has a source of connectors so that I don’t have to send in my old one?

    What toolholders are you referring to? I have never run into that problem, and I must have about 40 holders with all sorts of different carbide insert stick tools and boring bars, and have never had...

    I ditched an AXA and put a BXA on my 10EE. It helped that I already had a BXA on my Colchester Chipmaster, so I had some holders in hand. The 10EE can handle all of the size and stiffness of a BXA,...

    I would make the body and tongue that fits in the groove out of mild steel so that if you have a wreck, the stop deforms instead of the machine. You could case-harden the bumper or insert a hard...

    My choice would be almost any CNC. Once you taste that Koolaid there’s no kicking the habit. And once you taste a CNC without a tool changer, you’ll pine for one that has one. Ask me how I know.

    Looks to me like normal D1-3 without the studs. I sure hope it is. The key point is that it looks less dinged up than my current one.

    The easiest way to do it is to sketch the lines in CAD and pick off the points using dimensions. Otherwise, brush up on your trig skills.

    To get "work hardening" you need plastic deformation. The only plastic deformation I see is at the gripper ball contact points. It looks like the neck diameter should be 7 mm. If the drawbar force is...

    My Acu-rite DRO203, Fagor 30i, semi-antique Sony Model ??, and antique Acu-rite Master MP all have tool memories. The DRO Pros units I installed at the local high school robot shop have tool memories.

    The forces from being "flung around" won't be as high as the forces from normal drawbar retention. The pull stud had to be intact to create those indents. It looks like something went wrong with the...

    I have made a few chucked keys from 4140 pre-hard over the years. I did not do anything to the existing heat treatment, and they have held up better than OEM keys IMHO.

    My Acieras use the collar method for quill depth control. They are included from the factory. At the lower stop position the collar butts against a collar that rotates with the spindle, so there's no...

    Is that some sort of tool lifter? In some ways, it looks like an owner add-on. I have an Aciera slotting head that is similar in some ways, but does not have the extra mechanism on the front.

    The consensus on Turcite and tailstocks is, don't do it. The Turcite is too slippery and the tailstock will slip. Instead, you need to scrape the base to the ways and then shim between the base and...

    I would not worry about it as long as the quill aligns parallel with Z and the spindle trams well. My Acieras have taper pins for aligning the vertical heads. Most of the time I tram them in manually...
