There are 25 Microns to one thousandth of an inch.
That means every 2 1/2 Microns is one Tenth ( 2 1/2 Microns =.0001)
Rounding off the least significant digit to keep it simple and relative to this discussion.

Re: pulley size, variable speed

You will need to post the diameters of both step pulleys, the motor rpm, and the rpm range of the spindle in order to get any usable info.

Re: Does anyone recognize this lathe?

Here's one of my favorites... I needed some rubber gaskets made and I always send CAD drawings of the parts to the gasket maker. This time I was in a hurry and figured "what could possibly go wrong" as it was a simple disc, so I just emailed the ID, OD, and thickness. Apparently, I transposed a coup...

Re: Thinking of posting pictures?

I had no idea that the original file size was stored and then displayed reduced.

What was the point of adding the auto resizing software then?

Re: Thinking of posting pictures?

resizing is all important , The software re-sizes the images, so how could you post over sized images? The above image that I posted was 5152 x 3846 and was automatically re-sized to 400 x 300 when it was uploaded. There are other occasions where images will not upload regardless of size. My experi...

Re: Knockoff Bearings

It sounds like they possibly came from "LocateBallBearings.com" as they buy surplus and often re-package them in generic boxes for resale. (They also list on eBay)

Not necessarily forgeries because the boxes are incorrect.

Re: Does anyone recognize this lathe?

I like the water pump pulley for the carriage handwheel!

Not sure if it is Chevrolet or Ford :D

It resembles a 1980's generic Taiwanese bench lathe, but most had step pulleys and a threaded spindle.
