    A 10ee is usually 3 and 5 hp. They do pretty well right ? Yeah this machine is bigger, but its still only what ? 16" actual swing ?

    To rabler and Bill H's last comments:

    That's also part of my question, and something we began discussing with using an rpc and 3 phase drives.

    If starting the dc drive is negligible on amp draw, and motor in rush is not the same as with an AC motor. . .

    I have several reasons for checking amps, but this is good example of reason. When I asked everettengr to check amps on various conditions, he replied here:

    In some other threads we've begun discussing rpc driven 3 phase dc drives. You might find that more cost effective, plus keep the use of your dc motor.

    Starting a dc motor and drive won't pull...

    Checking some of the bearings. Timkins, and in good shape:

    I split the two housings from left end of qcgb:

    That allowed me access to a chamber in the left end of qcgb. I was able to clean the mung out of the bottom and get clean oil shot into...

    I'm not sure you will get stud out. But the part that locks the quill should come out and slip over the stud. Might need to turn TS upside down and reach into quill bore to push it out. Then you can...

    A 3 phase 10 hp motor at 220vac should be somewhere around 30-40 amps fully loaded, less with no load or light load.

    The spec on vfd:
    PC1-100, 10HP Phase Converter

    Foreign made, and not favorably. Questionable materials and build quality is the reputation. Don't know from personal experience, just what i hear or read.

    Continued from last post. . .

    If we look at the lathe it has two clutch arms. One at qcgb, one at apron. You want both at a comfortable operating range, but you'll also bang into to something if...

    I discovered a problem with the bevel gears in qcgb, for the clutch lever mechanism. But I have a fairly easy solution.

    First, I had an "oh [email protected]%" moment when I removed qcgb end plate. I looked...

    Not for a lathe. Looks like a jack that can hold either round work, or a round tool. Adjustment on back side to set depth of tool or work, which ever it holds.

    My first guess would be it holds a...

    I'm wondering if you have any theories on why the original set up was 3 pieces ?

    I would assume the center piece could be made of a softer metal, a wear item, more easily replaced. But looking at...

    This might be the thread the op means:
    Packing arrangement around gear shift shafts - 16 CY

    The speed controls you have toward TS end, are they rated for a certain hp, or are they just a potentiometers that connect to the eurotherm boxes ?

    Awesome, thank you. It may be nothing, just curious if we see variances in different systems, or large variances anyway.
