Re: Patio's projects

Hello everyone. I have made some time in the shop recently and thought I would catch everyone up. This mechanism consist of two systems. One is the control ie FWD/OFF/REV and the other controls the speed of the spindle. The speed control rod handle/lever, rod and arm came with the lathe, when I got ...

Re: Help using Sherline Boring Head

If it needs to be very accurate, you will need to be able to measure the hole, adjust the head and repeat until you have reach your desired dimension. Other wise you can use this method to set the head, mark the dial, retract the head and then bore/adjust until you reach the mark you made on the dia...

Re: Patio's projects

He everyone. Well this is a good news, bad news, good news story. Good news: Endoscope came in the mail early. I was also offered the use of a friends endoscope, if needed. Using the endoscope I was able to take a look through the hole in the apron and determined that it is indeed a screw. It is a c...

Re: steamin10 (Big Dave)

I will miss Big Dave, he was always supportive of my work, even when I knew very little, of how things were done.
It is a sad day.

Re: Patio's projects

Hi Jack, got yourself a side gig? :) Well folks, there is a delay of game happening right now! I am waiting on a 10 dollar endoscope to arrive in the mail, so I can look behind the apron. The square rod that runs through the apron for the control lever, is bumping on something. A friend lent me an o...

Re: Patio's projects

Hello everyone! This is the last of the modeling I am going to do of the Cazeneuve HBX360 speed control mechanism. It is not perfectly the way it will be built, but it is close enough for me to get drawings from, for each of the individual parts, to take to the shop so I can start making the parts. ...

Re: Patio's projects

Hey Jack, never! I would like to end up with a tracer attachment for the lathe someday. I don't think mill or lathe conversions are that great of a set up. If I had the space, time and money, I would love to own a real CNC lathe and mill.

Re: Patio's projects

Hi Jack, I hope things are going well in Idaho. Yes I am learning it on my own. Youtube tutorials help, when I am learning a new feature or get stuck. I have spend a large number of hours, on this mechanism alone. Most of what I am learning, is to use "constraints", more than "dimensions", to make t...

Re: Patio's projects

Spent some more time in Fusion and have a final drawing for the speed control part of the mechanism done. I still need to do the final drawing of the control mechanism. I am not an engineer, machinist, or CAD person, but this is what I got, so far. Comments are always welcome. This is a 7 minute YT ...
