    For that one I would check the resistance between the windings/ground and the pressure switch and contacts. Also check the unloader and make sure it's functioning correctly.

    What are you using to finish the tool edge? You need a fine edged tool to get the finest possible finish. A mirror or near mirror finish on the cutting tool would be ideal if you want the best...

    This sounds like a bad run cap to me, with the easy start but high running amperage draw and the windings checking out okay. I had a very similar issue with my 20 year old (bought new by me)...

    I'm sure they have been around long before Frank made some, but that's where I got the idea to make mine. There are lots of things like this that were devised way back when by some pretty bright...

    If you ask me, and it seems you were, the workflow in your new shop is very, very inefficient. You might try suggesting a tumbler or vibratory polisher. Hell, even a quick swipe with a wire brush for...

    Bump, and open to offers, would like to get this out of here. It's been sitting for a couple years in the way after I got the other one. I'm a haggler/scrounger by necessity myself, so don't worry...

    I made a few of those about 10 years ago when I saw them on Frank Ford's site. Thanks Frank! :cheers:

    Yes the contact should definitely be solid on the outside rim of the chuck back. His idea of leaving a thou or so gap so that outside rim/face barely contacts first should be fine. It's also a good...

    Yeah that is nice. I have some pretty thick tacky grease on the ram on mine and that works pretty well for holding it in position. They are much more usable when the ram stays put in my opinion as...

    Howdy fellas, I've got a Black Diamond BW-80 that is surplus to my needs (I also have a BW-95, which I use) and I just procured a spare set of collets for drill number sizes #1-#30, letters A-Z and...

    I don't see all that much belittling going on. Every now and then, yes. Usually it's someone who deserves it. Every once in a while somebody does go off for no good reason, and I've seen guys...

    You'll need a separate VFD if you want independent control of the spindle RPM; with a single unit the hydraulic pump RPM would change along with the spindle. To run multiple motors you need a VFD...

    He's saying the lathe is worn out, not that he got it fixed. It sure looks like a leadscrew pattern in the finish, very easy to get if the ways are worn .020"+ low and the top of the half-nut is...

    She is measuring the start and end point of the radius, not the actual radius itself. If the radius is perfectly formed that can work. If it's not then it won't be accurate. The same could be said...

    625 and 230 should be pretty damn similar in terms of cutting, looking at the spec charts they have almost identical composition. There are some tricks for turning that might help too - though they...
