Re: Lathe clutch usage?

Thanks Harold V and Steamin10 Harold I have read all the manuals I could find, even SB how to run a Lathe, and none of them go into the operation of the clutch, out side of it is used to engage the drive. I will use just for engaging and disengaging the drive as I don' want to harm the machine. I le...

Re: Lathe clutch usage?

Unless your machine has reaction clutches, no, you aren't supposed to use power to stops. Doing so is most likely to result in something breaking. Harold I do not have reaction clutches. Yes the lead screw has a keyway and is used for driving the entire apron. The apron is set up with an interlock ...

Re: First time poster here, and new to machining!

No need to re-make the pin. Just chuck it up by the head and indicate the shank in at the end that needs center drilling and drill it! Glenn I took your advise and chucked it up in a collet, being as by some miracle the head was exactly 3/16, I used the collet because I only have a 4 jaw chuck at t...

Re: First time poster here, and new to machining!

Tonights progress: Tonight I started to fix another piece of machinery. It is a belt sander that I acquired. The switch is broken and is difficult to use. So I took it apart and found that the plastic part was what had broken. I did not expect this to be a machining project, so I did not take pictur...

Re: Internal Single Point Threading Help!

I am the new guy here and have not tried internal threading yet. But after reading all of the post I think you problem is when retracting you are using the compound. Read Harold V post about setting your cross slide to 0 and using the compound only for advancing the depth of your cut. So it would go...

Re: First time poster here, and new to machining!

My latest progress in the world of maching. I ruined a perfectly nice piece of steel, but learned how to make my next part. I also like to draw in CAD a little bit, but intill recently have not been able to afford some of the better software, like Solid Works, which is a wonderful program wich can c...

Re: First time poster here, and new to machining!

Todays progress with the lathe. I got the chuck mounted today. I called the local supply house to see if they sold transfer punches, and he said they did. Off through the snow I went. The snow is also the reason I had time to mess with this today. When I got to the supply house, they did not have th...
