    So I've put the cart before the horse here since this seemed like such a good deal and bought 100 of these before getting a tool holder. I have a 3hp 13" clausing, does anyone have any suggestions...

    Figured this is worth another update! So I ended up going with WD40 and either 0000 steel wool or some fine scotchbrite (it was gray). The hand sanitizer did remove some paint. The WD40/Steel wool...

    So I had one of my buddies come over who programs VFDs and does industrial controls for a living and take a look. There are a grand total of 14 contacts, so we went through and found contacts we can...

    So are you using 12v for signal control to switch between high and low? I unfortunately don't think my drum has any unused contacts.

    The only other way I thought to do this: the drum switch is 5...

    I know people say not to put a switch between the VFD and motor, but as long as the motor isn't actively drawing current when the switch is actuated it wouldn't be an issue, would it? I'm thinking I...

    I think my main issue is that I'm just not sure which contacts in the drum switch to wire things to! I am not an electrician so I am having trouble reading the diagram lol
  9. Tips for cleaning oil staining from machinery paint?

    I've got a new to me Colchester 13 I'm starting to clean up. The paint really isn't that bad (and I'm feeling lazy...) so I plan on just getting it cleaned up and using it. A lot of the paint on the...

    Wiring VFD controls through drum switch

    I picked up a Clausing Colchester 13" lathe today. I'm looking to wire a VFD to the motor, and use the lever controls on the front of the machine to operate the lathe. So, that means I need to use...

    Anyone else find it kind of funny that the OP said they're no longer looking at P&W lathes, so we're absolutely flooding this post with links to P&W lathes now? :D

    I'd check out HGR, they're a machinery seller in Cleveland. Looks like they have a couple horizontal mills. My experience with them was good when I bought my Bridgeport from them, but others have...

  16. What can you tell me about this 13" Leblond?

    Sorry if this is the wrong forum or area, there isn't a Leblond forum on there. I found a Regal 13" Leblond that's in great shape, allegedly never used in industry. Haven't checked it out in person...

    I may pick one of those up. Interestingly enough, this is the 2nd pot I got from Automation direct. The first one was tough to rotate. Might try hooking that one up to see if it has the same dead...

    It did read 2k. But, the VFD said to use a pot between 1k-5k, so i didn't worry about it too much. Maybe a true 5k pot would solve this issue.

    Yep, it's just a little bigger than the minimum size.

    Interestingly enough, I have a nearly identical setup on my bridgeport. Same model VFD, same potentiometer, etc. And it doesn't have this...

    Sorry for the delay all, I haven't had much time in the shop as of late. I did some more investigating, and found that i'm only losing about 15% of my travel, not as much as I had previously thought....

    Sorry about the lack of updates, I haven't had time to look at this lately. The pot I purchased is linked below. I didn't see anything about it being linear or logarithmic.
