Re: Considering a DRO

Harold also makes great use of grease pencils, when doing repetitive jobs, using dials. I have yet to pick some up, but it is on my todo list.

Re: Considering a DRO

The other nice thing about DRO's is that they are accurate, even on worn out machines. They measure movement not turns of a screw.

Re: Lathe for turning wheels

Can you post a picture of the bottom of the compound. Some one on here most likely will have a good guess at it. When posting a picture, it is helpful to put a scale or a common object in the picture, to help others understand the size of things, in the picture. I often put a 6"caliper in mine. Are ...

Re: Graziano SAG12

Disconnect one of the coils, of the clutch magnets, from the system, read the resistance. This will allow one to figure out the amperage needed. Then the transformer could be sized accordingly. In fact, I think it would be a good Idea to test the resistance of all the coils to see if they are all th...

Re: Graziano SAG12

What am I missing? I don't see a rectifier on the 24V control circuit. I thought it was 24VAC. I do see the rectifier on the 30/32 volt clutch circuit.

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.
