Re: Question about lathe levelling

I can tell you from experience that the electronic levels on the market are no where near accurate enough to level a lathe correctly. I make a weldment for Thompson/ Danaher for the solar industry. The job requires that angles and flatness be held to extremely high accuracy. When the first pieces we...

Re: To Farm Out to China or Not

First of all your ad originally said you wanted to deal with someone who was local to you in CA. You lost a lot of possible shops by requesting that, yet now you are considering going to China????? I own a job shop here in NY.....and have heard my share of complaints from other shop owners, friends ...

Re: Sliding shafts on trucks

Glenn,

I don't believe those are G16 trucks, they are a homebuilt set, but it does give you an idea of what you can do.

Re: CAD CAM software

It's very simple, have one computer running XP for your Rhino software, and your other computer running Win 10 for everything else. I have Mastercam V8.1 (2000 vintage) on an older machine running XP. You can get the older machines for next to nothing, or in my case it came from someones trash. It i...

Re: Looking for D1-2 chucks for a Pratt a d Whitney 1689

Harold, when I first saw this post I thought the same thing, there is no D1-2 taper....but I too stand corrected. There is however something wrong with the chart attached above: http://qfguides.tripod.com/american_lathe_spindles_specific.htm The chart says the D1-3 taper "B" dia is 2.5", where it is...
