    Right,

    thanks for the 10k explanation, makes sense.

    Regarding the field supply, why did they choose to alter it in some models? Be it rheostat or high/low taps. What do you loose if you keep...

    Hi to all,

    thanks for the info, it's been quite some time since I last had anything to do with motors (this is no excuse though, I should know some of these stuff...).

    Here are some pics from...

    Well...it's not exactly shot...that's how they all are :)

    First, thanks for rushing to correct the diagram and help others in the future!

    And, only because you mentioned it, your diode-bridge part in the schematic is not correct. Not that it actually...

    Hey Bill,

    nevermind, I had done a sanity check myself to begin with and found nothing strange on the diode board. Looking forward to get the chance to have a more thorough look, sadly not...

    Hi to all,

    so, the report of my latest findings:

    - My motor is also a Croydon England unit, 50 W (1/15 HP), type SD22, 1750 RPM, same as Bills. BUT...mine says 115A/190F when it comes to...
  7. Hi Bill, sorry if I am not following but as I...

    Hi Bill,

    sorry if I am not following but as I said:
    - I wired the motor to get voltages both at A and F close to the specs
    - Specs are 110 A/190 F (Field higher than Armature, confirmed also by...
  8. Right Bill, makes sense. I'll disconnect the...

    Right Bill, makes sense. I'll disconnect the armature and check if strange things still happen. If not, then it's the rotor to blame. I think I've cleaned the commutator, I saw it shinning last time...

    Hey there Bill, thanks for chiming in.

    You missed my: "I drew a 100V line from the the main transformer, passed it through a relay controlled by the spindle switch (like the other, 230 V supply of...

    I'll do that Jim, thanks. Voltage climbs when I turn the knob CW, so I thought I am ok regarding connections, but I'll check again.

    (note: I didn't rewire the thing, just repaired the broken...
  11. Hi there Bill, so thanks for the reply, I am...

    Hi there Bill,

    so thanks for the reply, I am kind of at a loss here....

    The actual status is:

    I drew a 100V line from the the main transformer, passed it through a relay controlled by the...
  12. Hi there Bill, thanks for the reply. I am...

    Hi there Bill, thanks for the reply.

    I am familiar with this schematic, I've already printed it for my file. However, this one totally ruins my theory, I was hopping there was a typo there:

  13. Hardinge KL-1 feed motor: can you please share volt ratings?

    Hi to all,

    still trying to put my KL-1 together. Many things to do still, now I have shifted my attention to the power feed motor.

    Power feeds never worked on this machine for several issues....

    Hold on tight! After all, you have machining tools, they are very helpful in...repairing machining tools! You'll get that fixed for sure!

    Did the socket head cap screws break their head? Or was...

    Spindle brake can be helpful in cases of needing to stop and measure, or reposition a collet block and the like. Simple things but some times you don't have the patience to wait a bit for the spindle...

    Hey there Bill,

    sorry for resurecting this ancient post, but I stumbled on it on my pursuit of information so that I can finally fix the power feed on my UK KL1 machine...

    Exactly,

    I have received compensation for items not sold as pictured from a company that is in Germany (and I am in Greece).
    Give it a shot.

    Well, like I said, just my take on this: I power tap at very log RPM (e.g. 40). Stop, switch to high speed on the gearbox and use the inching wheel to retract the tap. At high speed it only takes a...

    Agreed that water-based coolants cool 'more' than oil, but won't the oil cool enough, that's what I am wondering. Except for the price I would prefer oil all over my machine than something...

    Hi there Dennis,

    nice work cleaning out that sump!

    Regarding cutting fluids, I guess the reason that coolant is not so suited for hobbyist is that it needs to be replaced regularly, or else it...

    Hey guys,

    Just my 2 cents. If you're using your Deckel for everything, you'll eventually power tap. And, unless you modify the electrics, you have no other way of retracting the tap than the...

    A lot of work...! thank the man for taking the time to share Bruce, you are right, this will be used as a reference from many.
