    The guy I got my Sheldon R15 from was a strange duck. The lathe came with a jug of spindle oil in a compartment in the tail support, but he had it jammed up against a wall so he couldn't open the...

    I would expect them to work the same. The tubes we were using came from a WIAD that the owner converted to an AC motor / VFD drive. The thyratrons were doing the same thing in both lathes. In any...

    When I showed my new 6 jaw Buck to my girlfriend, I commented that if I wanted a three jaw chuck I could remove three. She said "But not all on the same side."

    I was aware of the rest of the story and possibly should have included more explanation, but what I said was true, not what I wanted to see. Haber's work on nitrates and zyklon B may well have been...

    I briefly owned a 9" South Bend so I can offer some free advice, which is by definition worthless.

    A weak spot is the spindle running in the cast iron headstock, no bronze bushing, even. Keeping...

    Personally, I consider most of this infantile, but there was one that I thought was funny. The story goes that shortly after the Cadillac Eldorado went on the market, one would make a clunk sound...

    Once again, if the third phase voltage was correct but it only drew 1/2 the current, the phase angle was wrong. An oscilloscope would show it. A while back some people were having problems with a CNC...

    I photo shopped the images and rotated them as well as tinkering with brightness and contrast. On my screen the letters appear chopped up but they print fine. In case anyone notices that picture 3 is...

    The problem with the Transwave is likely that it uses a potential relay that isn't getting a high enough voltage to hold it in. Another video of limited value by someone who has no idea what he is...

    When you say that two do not make contact, do you mean physically or electrically? Does the lathe still have braking? If not, I bet that it was disabled in the "conversion" and people stopped it...

    There must be a problem with the travel since all four are not likely to have worn to that point. See if the movement looks the same as the other contactor, if not, look for the cause.
