    If it works, it works. Great.

    And yes, it is Paul. Not hiding anything: that's what I go by, my middle name. Perhaps I should incorporate it in my tag line. I picked the user name many years ago...

    Well, good luck with it. And remember the purpose for leveling a lathe is to have it turn proper cylinders. The actual level is not the end purpose AND it is not even the last step in setting a lathe...

    Assuming that this is a serious question, it is far, far too vague to obtain any decent answer.

    "machine too equipment" Another assumption is needed here: that probably was supposed to be...

    I would consider redesigning this circuit in the following manner.

    You need to switch (the relays) the various sensors into combinations that either add or subtract their signals. Your existing...

    I have had a lathe on a wood floor and frankly I do not think that any amount of reinforcement short of pouring a solid concrete support to below the frost line will help. That floor is wood and it...

    Yes, I had a bone spur. The shots gave me some relief and, in time, it did go away. But, YMMV.

    Now and for the past several decades I have had back problems. Several doctors have recommended...

    I have built a lot of op amp circuits and this is exactly what I was thinking of. Modern op amps can have a very high input impedance and a very low output one. And to maintain the accuracy, op amp...

    I haven't read the entire thread so this may have been suggested already and I do know it is a PITA to change a 12" chuck, but it sounds to me like you need two chucks, perhaps 12" and a 6" for...

    Mice are easy enough to trap. They love chocolate and peanut butter so use those peanut butter cups for bait. Smooth sided pipe (four inch PVC), standing vertical with a way for them to climb up to...

    Industrial Supply Equipment from MSC Industrial Supply

    It drills! It mills! It countersinks! It chamfers! Sizes start at 1/16" diameter and go to 3/4". But it has a...

    Dead sharp tool bit.

    Coolant, preferably an OIL based one.

    Higher cutting speed - within limits.

    Use a leaded alloy.

    OK, if I am reading the question properly, he wants a rougher finish, not a smoother one.

    If it is worth the effort, you could use a boring head in a vertical mill to provide a radius adjustment....

    The motor runs on VFD only: line power is not permitted? How does that work? What's different?

    And referring to rons post #30, just what does "rotor bar design" refer to? I am not a motor guy and...

    I see larger batches as being key to cutting the cycle time per part. I also suggest top/bottom clamping on both one end and part of the center while working on just the free end of the pins. This...

    Yes, they make chucks that you can dial in. The magic is in the back plate, not the chuck itself. They go by names like "True Set" or "Run True".

    First, a serpentine belt is the bees knees on a belted lathe. No more click - click and it runs smooth as glass. In addition to that, I will second the idea of removing the spindle on an older lathe....

    The blade does not care.
