Re: Patio's projects

Perhaps two changes at once is biting you.

The original belt fit the pulleys but didn't have enough redial contact on the pot.

Then you added the idler and also went with a thicker cross section belt.

Perhaps trying the original cross section belt with the idler is the solution.

Re: Way oil for DoAll 6x18 Manual Feed

Rack and pinion can sometimes print a pattern in the surface.

Re: Way oil for DoAll 6x18 Manual Feed

That sounds a bit odd.

Is it a rack and pinion drive table?

I'm able to buy Vacuoline 1409 in gallon quantity from Neuco Supply in Florida, but use it on my lathe only. You might talk to them

Grinders get Vactra #2.

Re: Way oil for DoAll 6x18 Manual Feed

It's a surface grinder, not a lathe.

Why not Vactra #2?

Re: Patio's projects

So, was the model you made incorrect, or were the parts made incorrectly? I make three view drawings of things before making them and it always seems to work out. A lot of times, depending on what I am making, I only draw a single view that only shows what is needed such as hole locations. I decided...

Re: Miller three phase welder questions

Once you posted a pic, I realized they my TIG welder is built on the same frame, so a lot of things are similar.

Re: Miller three phase welder questions

Facing the front of the machine, the right side cover comes off to connect the power cord. There should be something in there about 240 or 480 hookup.

Re: Miller three phase welder questions

Post a pic of the front panel and it will be easy to tell you how to test it. Just guessing without seeing it, If it has a switch for the high frequency make sure it is on, and flip the "Contactor" switch to "Remote. Power up the welder and just flip the "Contactor"switch to "Standard" for a second ...

Re: Self centering vise

I can't really imagine any advantage to a self centering vise in a mill. I always work from one corner of the fixed jaw on a milling vise as the dials are zero'ed there and it remains constant. By doing that, you are always working in a positive direction from zero. Being zero'ed on a center point b...

Re: Spin Grinding Wheel Before Starting

External grinding hard chrome on 3 1/4" dia. x 30" long tubing. Huge coolant flow to keep it from moving around from the small amount of localized heat created by the wheel contact. Grinding small areas, or solid parts with hard chrome is wonderful, large areas on relatively thin wall tubing with a ...
