    You may have already realized this, the adapted cross-feed dial is diameter read- and the "small dial" factory compound is direct read. Not sure I'd want a mix of both on one machine, but that's...

    How's the headstock on that setup- is it a pressure oil system on the gears?

    Always first choice.
    And Dave is always happy to lend advice or help with any problems.

  7. Where to send a compound slide for scraping?

    Just got a Sheldon making chips and noticed an issue with the compound.

    I'll be the odd man out on this one.
    I'd do this barrel between centers. I often do anyway, but in this case since the thread tenon is already cut I'd work off of that. No reason to assume the...

    If the motor needs to be changed anyway, personally I'd avoid the 3-phase vfd and just run with a single phase 220v motor.

    Motors run via vfd should be "inverter duty" which are more expensive,...

    I had to face the thrust bearing and dial to get a near-zero backlash on initial disassembly/re-assembly. The super-glued plate is just a shim, I don't see it taking any real load; once D&T'd as...

    Which method to reduce cross-slide backlash?

    About 1/2 turn (60 thou) backlash on a Sheldon I've just brought "online".
    The screw shows light/reasonable wear on visual inspection, and backlash is about the same even at the far end of travel...

    I am puzzled when individuals feel that a lower mid-tier, mass-produced rifle that shoots 3/4 minute of angle is somehow defective.

    That's perfectly acceptable. Want 1/2 minute accuracy, buy an...
