Re: Bearing issue?

It just occurred to me that it may just be the pinions in the chuck and that may explain why there are no other symptoms. At hand speed they may rise and fall ever so slightly as the chuck rotates. I will wrap them with a rubber band and see if that solves that noise. If it does then I continue with...

Re: Bearing issue?

It is a very light click and I hear no "rumble" as I am familiar with with a bad race of ball.I just replaced the front wheel bearing on my 2011 Camry yesterday due to the telltale rumble after it did a run to Colorado and back two weeks ago. The click noise is not noticeable when the machine is run...

Put a face load on the spindle with the tail stock and see if the clicking noise is still there.
Tomorrow. :)
No change with the face load. Continues slight metallic "click".

Pat, I put a dial indicator on three points with minimal movement found.

Re: Bearing issue?

Still a little bothered by the bearing noise though so maybe this winter I will change that out regardless as a PM item.

Re: Bearing issue?

I'm late to the party, but if you've been machining mild steel dry, no lube at all, I'm on Glenn's side with this one. Mild steel is one of the worst possible materials to work with, because it loves to tear (generally the cause is chip welding). It mills well with the sides of an end mill, however...

Re: Bearing issue?

Sounds a bit like chip welding where a small chip welds itself to the cutting edge of the tool for a short duration and then breaks free. Had not considered that. If it were the case, oil should change this I would think. I have used oil often but not really paid that much attention. I believe I wi...

Re: Bearing issue?

Do you see that with everything (topslide, compound, and cross-slide) locked down? I do. As many as can be locked down. I thought due to a piston type QCTP I may have been shifting the tool but I held the tool holder with the tool in the lowest possible (for lack of better terms, tool down) and cla...

Bearing issue?

On my old Enco lathe I occasionally get what I refer to as a shift in something and it manifests itself as a stretch of cutting slightly deeper and a little rougher than the rest of the finish. This stretch is maybe 1/16th to perhaps 1/4" in duration and then the finish returns to the original desir...

Re: Patio's projects

Pat,

I am not sure they use JB Weld on the F15E Eagles but I like the video.
Seems the rain has driven us both back into the shop. Fall arrives in Washington.

Re: Don't need a torque wrench any more

I think you need to add shoulder pain at 60 FT LB's.
