    Lee,
    The nut is just threaded onto the chuck and once removed you slip the holder into the chuck and put the nut on to tighten it all up as per normal.
    It doesn't have any kind of retainer to hold...
  3. L00 Chushman 3 jaw, L00 40 taper, L0 back plate

    6" 3 jaw Cushman with just the three jaws as shown. As far as I can tell it is in pretty good shape.

    Ripperj,
    thanks for that tip. I have used the estop a few times but did not know it shut off the oiler. I will check that it does shut it off as this machine can be used manually so maybe the oiler...

    Does intermittent mean if you reboot it again it sometimes works fine?
    I have a 3000M on a Roberts Topwell mill and the control does seem to have a few glitches.

    Greenwud,
    The thread pitch selection chart and feeds and speeds do not have any fractional pitches listed?

    Just checked the special thread chart and 11-1/2 is an option!
    I also have all the gears to make that happen. Still don’t have the metric gears though no matter how many times I look.

    Greenwud,
    I will have to check the manual as I think I looked at buying a 127 tooth gear many years ago and gave up. I will also check the gears that I have that were stored on the machine as you...

    Stu,
    Sadly I don’t have the metric change gears but that is a good workaround as it is not a precise thread that is required.
    IIRC you need a 127 tooth plus a few more common pitch gears to get...

    I have just discovered after 12 years that my very fine DSG lathe does not have the ability to thread 11-1/2 tpi pipe threads?
    Why would that size be omitted?
    I need to cut some straight threads...

    TG,
    That is correct, the swing axis is used to angle the blade relative to the wheel.
    You linked a 7x magnifier, do you think 7x is the best for what I need to do?

    I am also wondering if I...

    Michigan,
    The wheel head detents and locks in place at 0°.
    When tilting to grind the bevels the wheel head is just manually positioned to the scale which is accurate enough.

    TG,
    The saw only travels in and out with the auto grind function.
    The tooth position is adjusted manually in relation to the wheel. I am not sure what axis a DRO would go on? Also the tooth depth...
