you will need to replace the supplied thermocouple with a type K thermocouple that are available on ebay which would reach the required heat range

|Thread: Single to 3 phase vfd|
I have just recently fitted a 1.5hp 3 pahse motor to my Boxford AUD on a HuanYang vfd with no problems. The vfd has been in service for about a year as it was previously fitted to my Grayson Lathe and has performed very well. even setting it up was fairly easy once I had got my head around the chinglish manual.
P.S I even made my own pendant to operate the vfd remotely

|Thread: Fusion 360 help needed|
If you register as a hobbyists it's free for a year then you re-register as a hobbyist again for another year and so on. From what I understand there are no plans for them to start charging hobbyists, non profit organisations or businesses with a turn over of less than £100,000.00

|Thread: Tow bar wiring loom|
I have been Caravaning for the last 14 years and have always had the tow bar and electrics done professionally. It isn't worth the risk doing it yourself especially since insurance companies find any excuse not to pay out
|Thread: Fusion 360 Knurling - Efficiency?|

|Thread: TEC Strange wires|
Thank you all for your replies.
It is connected to a Huanyang inverter 1.5kw, I'll have to check to see how I can take advantage of the thermistor. I've only just purchased both and I'm still trying to get my head around the chinglish manual
Hi all I hope someone out there can help identify a couple of strange wires in a TEC electric motor.
As you can see in the photo above i have 2 blue wires in a conection block that dont seem to have any use. They do not connect to the main winddings. I have had the motor running and every thing seems to be running ok. Are they any thing i need to be concerned with or can i just ignore them.
I'm looking forward to your replys

|Thread: Toolholders for Myford ML7 and ML10 lathes|
In answer to the OP I have purchased a dikinson style tool holder from RDG. I have been very satisfied with how it behaves but then i have no experience of any other make or style of holder other than a 4 way tool holder which came with my lathe. After a 4 way tool holder any quick change holder is a dream.
|Thread: Bronze Bearings|
Thanks MichaelG. When I mentioned to my dad that I would have to replace the bearings in the lathe he mentioned that I would have to scrape them in. I thought that only had to be done with bearings that are in two halves. At the time he gave me a scraper that he made before he retired 20 years ago out of an old file. He was nearly as exited as I was when I purchased the lathe
