Re: rotary table

I have a lift table, bought at Harbor Freight that holds my 12" rotary table and other pieces of equipment. I do like Herb Kephart does. Table goes up, knee comes down and just slide it across. Easy Peasy!

Re: Lathe for turning wheels

Did you draw this up in a CAD program first to work out the details, as it seems you have a plan?

Re: Graziano SAG12

I can only take a guess at it. The control circuit runs the start contactors, maybe a couple of relays and the indicator lights. I would think it should be under 10A and 3A might be right. The idea of connecting a remote power supply for testing, I think is a good one. It will tell you if there is a...

Re: Graziano SAG12

When I worked on Harold's cylindrical grinder, I found all the AC wire was one color and the DC wiring was another. Different machine, different time, but it may be a clue that will help.

Re: OT creative language

I smoked cigars for awhile, but would not inhale, as that would be the road to ruin again. I used them to "muddy my mouth while drinking and as you say, something to fiddle with. It is a very complex habit. I am off the nicotine train now, with no intention of ever getting back on. You will get off ...

Re: Graziano SAG12

The 30 and 32VAC outputs of the transformer goes through a rectifier and feed the magnetic clutches, that change the speed of the spindle, by way of a joy stick on the apron. I suspect that the clutches want a 24VDC input, which would require about 30 to 32 VAC to get there. I also suspect that the ...

Re: Graziano SAG12

Looks like the transformer was designed for 220 or 380VAC input and has a 24,30 and32 VAC outputs. The schematics shows that you need the 24VAC and to choose between 30 or 32VAC. Interesting enough also is that the picture of the electronics show that the 30VAC was chosen and the schematics show the...

Re: OT creative language

Spro, I use to smoke. I tried patches and gum, they just traded on addiction for another. In the end, I just quit. Best thing that I ever did for myself. It is known to be easier to quit Heroin than Nicotine. Once an addict, always an addict. If I have one, I might as well just buy a carton. Nicotin...

Re: The home shop machinist, health of the hobby

For the first time in history, man's knowledge is not held captive by others. IE. colleges, trade unions and the like. You can learn most anything you want nowadays, via the internet. I have never been wealthy enough to go to a real college, where they have lectures and such. I went to a trade schoo...

Re: VFD setup

be careful about running the lathe at low speeds at a heavy load. Many old motors cannot handle it and may well likely overheat.. This is true. One can install a cooling fan on the motor that activates when the motor does or with a temperature sensor. One of these day I will run a temperature test ...

Re: VFD setup

Liveaboard, the VFD will work with momentary or maintained contact type switches. Page 32 in the manual has three different switch set ups. The one in the middle is a momentary system and the two on each side are maintained type contacts. How is the switch you want to use configured? Are you using o...
