MicroKinetics

Curious about any opinions and reviews of the M/K equipment. Have thought for several years I'd like to have a lathe and mill to do some small home sized jobs like after work. Quality stuff? Problems? Ease of use?? Loren.

Re: lathe type question

Wouldn't have a pic to post of that High Duty would you? I use an American at work and am trying to figure out what model it is. It's not a Pacemaker. It'll swing about 24"

Hey! Somewhere along the line I graduated from oily chips and floor sweep!
Scott, would you do me a favor and post on the Hobart board, I'm just not into registering for yet another board. Thanks if you would, Loren.

Re: Scott, a redo subject

Oh, I got the welder too. The R3S Lincoln. Remember it's the same as what I use at work. It's nice to learn to weld on a welder that I'll have at home I think.
I'll post over there too and see what happens. Thanks, Loren.

Scott, a redo subject

Remember we talked a while back about the R3S with a Miller feeder I put money on? I didn't know what model the fedder was? I brought the thing home today and saw that it's a 30A Miller. Is that the right number? Any problems with it that you or anyone else knows of? I heard the rolls can't be found...

Re: Hydraulic Motors

We've got a hydraulic lathe at work. I can run it right down to 0 rpm, cause it's for sub-arc welding!

Building my cnc lathe

Wondering if there is any reason to have the spindle tied to the pc when using a lathe only as a chucker? I can see threading or rpm and on/off but don't know why I can't run a stepper for the carriage and crossfeed and go.

List of steels and properties.

Is there a list of what steels are what and properties that they have I can load on my pc for reference? Looking for "stressproof" again and tired of trying to remember what it's good for and what the numbers are.

Re: You are not the only one!

I believe what you heard about the little Lincolns. I think the Millers at work run .045" wire but I could easily be worng. I haven't run one out and had to change it yet so... I told a fella at work today that I'd take his big Lincoln off his hands, a R3S 400 IdealArc with a Miller wire feeder on 5...

Re: Info and ?? on the Lincoln MIG welders

About 9 years ago I bought an SP100 Lincoln for doing exhaust and brackets and such in my auto shop. Mostly because the only Miller I used seemed to not put out as nice a weld. The Lincoln has been absolutely fantastic for my light work. I started a new job about 3 months ago and we've got 2 Millers...
