Re: vfd for heavy 10

Mike Miller <mike@...>
 

I got mine from factorymation.com It wasn't much more expensive than what I saw on ebay, and it had the added value of not having to mess around with ebay.

I got a teco fm-100, about $155, plus a remote relocation kit.

How would you use a threading stop on a 9 in with a taper attachment.
I' am drawing a blank.

Re: South Bend indexing centers unit cat #ce9635

The Indexing Attachment is almost certainly intended for use with a milling machine. The pins on the bottom are used to align the attachment with the T-slots of the mill's table.
 
At 5" swing it appears to be too large to fit on a lathe, and there doesn't appear to be a way to mount it to the cross slide.
 
Looks like a 72:1 worm drive. 5 degrees per revolution of the ball handle, 50 divisions would give 1/10 degree increments.

Bud,
I'll take any scanned information or documents, try to reduce it down to 150
or 300 dpi so the file will not be so huge, I can take the big file and do it for you.
I have a T-1 line at work, so big files are not a problem.

Re: More progress on the Springfield Shaper Lead Screw

If you double click on them the will expand and the text will be revealed.

Today I pretty much finished up the New Leadscrew for the Springfield 15"
shaper.
Al that needs to be done is to cut the woodruff key slots. I have one cutter
that Joe Schulte form the NJ_LoganLatheOwners@yahoogroups.com lent me. I
need a 1/8 (204) cutter and am looking for that. I want to cut both
together.

I have made some modification to the screw. As you can see the original was
broken. G. Dean from http://finance.groups.yahoo.com/group/Metal_Shapers/
Has a 12" Springfield which appears to be very close to mine. He was kind
enough to draw up his.

The Original had a turned in place thrust boss. That would have meant
starting with 1 3/8 stock and turning it all down to 1" except for the boss.
That's too much for me and I couldn't handle the length even wit the "new"
Heavy 10.

I added a area between the 1" bearing section and the 7/8 area where the
rocker will go which is 15/16 diameter . This is about 0.435 long. Here I
chased a 15/16-20 thread. The miner diameter of that thread is almost
exactly 7/8, well close enough for government work. I will make a new boss,
with enough beef to burry a roller thrust bearing which screws onto this
thread and which will be locked in place sit a grub screw.

That boss is the next project.

In the mean time I am open for comments on how to correct the worn areas
where the old thrust washers/bosses went.
Could the left end actually have been spherical to start?

I plan to buy a carbide router rabbi ting bit. This has a pilot shaft. It
will be 1 3/8 od. I will make a pilot to fit into the bearing hole and
accept the router bit pilot and cut the area flat. I will then use (ball on
the left roller on the right) thrust bearings to carry the thrust of the
screw.

What do you think out there
