Duplomatic T50 tracer attachment, refurbishment

A new project that has been in making for some time. The Cazeneuve HBX360 lathe came with either a Taper attachment or a Tracer attachment. This was done because the tail stock design does not lend itself to cutting tapers, as is done on most all other lathes. Mine came with the Taper attachment. I ...

Re: New to me Cazeneuve HBX 360 Lathe

Hi Pete, I know very little about hydraulics. I know some of the dangers they poses, like loosing finger and such from hydraulic injection. I know pressure is power and volume is speed. That about sums it up for me. I started this post about the tracer here in this thread, because I intend to instal...

Re: New to me Cazeneuve HBX 360 Lathe

Pete, the turret is not hydraulically actuated. It has a plunger underneath that advances it. It does have a clock spring inside that will reset it back to the #1 stop. It has the ability to do a couple of stops and then return to #1. I have received the T 50 tracer, a much smaller version. It has 6...

Re: New to me Cazeneuve HBX 360 Lathe

Looks like it is update night! I have the control mechanisms for the lathe finished. I have been using them for a few months now, and do enjoy them. The lathe is now in a condition where I should be able to make some kind of video of it's operations. Just need to make some time to do it. There is a ...

Re: Panhead rebuild project...

Wow, I have not updated this in a long time. This project has consumed a lot of my time, over the last two + years, from my last posting. :shock: It has not been easy, and I am not any closer to getting this one running, properly. Mostly due to other peoples work and some of my own stupidity, but I ...

Re: Special Die

Russ, here is an idea. Thread milling on a manual lathe. I just watched Stefan Gotteswinter, from YT, do it.

I don't know if this will help or not. If high precision is required, it may not work.

Re: Need help with lathe finish

That screw that is black, is loose! It will create a high resistance connection and an imbalance of your motor electrical system. You need to pull it apart and clean the wire, the contact pads and maybe replace the screw. That should help a lot.

Re: loose screw issue

Awfully small and beyond my skills, but it just popped into my head... how about a screw in a screw? Like a lock nut, but in reverse. Could maybe work if the hole is blind and preload is set by screw shoulder. Tighten outer to set preload, tighten inner to lock in place. Or along the same lines, li...

Re: loose screw issue

Just a crazy thought. 49823697931_891bd8107c_c.jpg Hard to explain. This is a hole with a pin that is captured and spring loaded. Detents on the underside of thumb screw. When screw is almost time the plunger will settle in one of the detents keeping the thumbscrew in place. Nothing to loss and shou...
