Thanks Pat. :) So...when will the CNC conversions start for the mill and lathe. :roll: :wink: :lol: Then you can turn your drawings into G code and let the machines do all the hard work? :wink: :lol:

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.

:lol: I was just kidding on CNC stuff :lol: After I retired I worked part time at a manual machine shop near me as a helper, mostly Bridgeport work and some on the Sejo horizontal. They liked how I caught on to the work and then put me on a Graziano Sag 20 lathe. That was one sweet running lathe, my favorite machine in the shop. :) :) It had a hydraulic tracer that was used on a couple of jobs, The tracer was big and heavy and needed a hoist to mount it.

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.
The video is about 7 minutes long, and show both the speed mechanism and the control mechanism.
Enjoy!

Looking good! The micro-switches are a vast improvement over the toggle switch you thought of originally.
Make some chips, Patio. :-)

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 old bore scope, that has a broken light. I was able to see a little, but nothing definitive. I have owned one, like the one that it coming, so I am familiar with it's capabilities. I think it is a screw that has backed out, but I am not sure yet.
So I wait.
It should arrive on the 20th of Feb.
