I have VFD's on both my lathes.
During most operations i can leave the lathe in a fairly high gear and turn it down from there. Very handy. Good for chip control. I don't think I'd have a lathe without it...ie single phase motor.
That shear pin won't save your ass.
Lathes kill people every day. The only thing saving your ass is this close call. It will make you and others think , and be more cautious. I hope everyone reads this. I am just as guilty. When its cold, i wear a sweatshirt. But i stay the hell away from...
When I started camping, I wanted a Honda EU2000i generator to power my trailer in the backcountry. So I spent a few months wheeling and dealing in used generators. Initially I thought that i could make one quiet enough, but not possible... long story short, i made enough buying and selling...
Its an 18spd, but you only use 8.....most of the time
Empty truck - 1234 - shift to hi box, 1234
loaded - low low, low high, 1 low, 1 high, 2 low, 2 high....and so on.
now days they just hold the wheel and shift to drive...
Some people way over value items, some are way under. I don't think its really a buyers responsibility to educate the seller. Its a free market. David got a decent enough deal and I hope he can turn a profit. Thats how its done.
No. That was actually a bit of a safety to keep it from rolling when I went to take the pic and see what it was sitting on. I dug it out till it was sitting on a tiny little point then rolled it down. It went over about 3 times and sunk into the dirt. It stayed there for a few years. My shop is...
Moved a few thousand tons of dirt on my property from the high side to the low side. Lotsa big boulders like this:
once it was on level ground it took 2 bobcats to roll it 200' to the edge of the drop off. Figured at least 5 ton.
had to pop a seal in the rear hub of a Ford F650 tonight, but soon found out that i didn't have a suitable driver for the 5.88" OD seal. Had an old wheel hub on the floor, which had a 5.90" OD. How fortuitous?
Ive been on a junk phase lately but man its been savin my butt.
Hammer the studs...
Learn something new everyday here....the Emco V13 will cut a 1.6 but my SM 1660 won't.
The 10ee has enclosed oil bath change gears, but you CAN buy a metric $et
The 1660 doesn't really have a provision for changing the end gearing.
Quite a few 1440 class lathes still require change gear changes for different threads. Once you get up to 1660 class that seems to go away. My Standard Modern1660 threads all metric and standard threads without messing with change gears. Just something to keep in mind.
Don, we definitly had that same grampa! Mine also had 3rd grade but was also one of the smartest men i've ever known. He could and would fix everything. His 3rd grade put my dad through university in UCLA, although my dad made his own cash hustling at my grampas pool hall in Shellbrooke, SK i...
