Re: Replacing Compressor motor

Thanks everyone. I was looking into pumps as well as motors, and the combination of the two just doesn't make sense money wise. I can buy a brand new 60 gal compressor with 15+ CFM @ 90 for less than the pump + motor would cost. I wish I could install it outside, but then the noise would be louder f...

Replacing Compressor motor

I have a very small shop, 1 car, with a small attached shop, same width, about 6 feet deep. I have a 3-1 Lathe/Mill from Grizzly, it's not bad. Drill press, big tool chest, cabinets etc... so space is limited. I have a 30 gallon compressor, this one: http://www.chpower.com/productdetail/auto-restora...

Re: Easy questions about my Grizzly 9729

Very good, thanks.

Did you find you had to make any adjustments to the tailstock or table slides to make it true or accurate?

Re: Easy questions about my Grizzly 9729

Thanks a lot, I actually found that same angle table locally at KBC and will probably pick that up and some 123 blocks too. When you notched the angle marks on your vice, did you use a rotary table and the mill? I should do that, as the angle guide on mine is garbage, held on by horrible rivets.

Re: Easy questions about my Grizzly 9729

Here is a picture of the setup, the current vise is 3.5" above the table. I like the idea of the adjustable angle table, is it easy to level and leave it there if needed? Also, do you just clamp your work to it or use a vise on it, or both?

Thanks again, already very valuable info for me.

Thanks,

Easy questions about my Grizzly 9729

I'm pretty sure the answer is get a bigger vise, but I'll ask anyways. Bought this machine, really happy with it so far, have learned a ton on it already. Have done mostly lathe work on it, but tried to do a bit of milling. I put a 3/16th end mill in an MT3 end mill holder, and with the headstock ex...
