Hi can any WM180 lathe owner enlighten me as to the change wheel tooth form profile for this machine. Warco could not supply this information. I intend to manufacture a set of change wheels in Delrin for the leadscrew feed unit only. I require 5 off 20.24,72,80 x 2. Manufacture is not a problem however I do need to know what involute cutter to purchase.

Thank you Bernard Reilly by Glasgow.

Thread: WM180 change wheels
22/08/2020 12:11:12

Hi all I have just recently purchased a Warco WM180 lathe. The machine runs very well however the fine feed selection gear wheels run very noisy. Over greasing them would possibly cause belt slippage to the motor drive. I am open to ideas from anyone who has experienced of this problem.

Thank you Bernard Reilly Scotland.

Thread: Info required
28/12/2019 14:30:31

Hi thanks to all for informative reply's. In answer to not done it yes the object of the exercise is to purely to overcome the weight of the head on manual lift operation.. I have come across a short video on U Tube showing the installation of a gas strut on a rack operated head system. Would a gas strut work on a leadscrew & nut system. ? I just want to keep things a simple as possible as not into electronics.

Many thanks and a happy New Year to all B. Reilly Glasgow.

Hi has anyone fitted a X & Y axis DRO to a Warco WM16B mill. X axis would have to be fitted to work table front edge otherwise Y axis travel would be restricted. Just weighing up the pros & cons.

I have an Alb 1 A for twenty years now and would not part wit it for all the tea in China. Saves a fortune in milling cutters into the bargain. Shapers are greatly underestimated machine tool as to their usefulness and versatility.

Thread: Using Chalk to Centre a 4-Jaw?
29/11/2017 20:21:29

I have used all the methods suggested but prefer my DTI mounted in a QCT. I know of a chap who used the lathe chuck key in a similar manner to the chalk method .For the life of me I do not know how he knew what chuck jaw to adjust.. Needless to say he was a time served turner.

Thread: The smallest one ever???
19/03/2017 16:11:53

Hi all not hijacking a this post just reminiscing I was a time served heavy machinist and had a long association with Planers Plano /Millers Shaping and Slotting machines. it was common for heavy swarf from the planer to fall and set fire to the duckboards. At almost 78 years of age still get a yearning to be at the controls of a planer. However I still make use of my Alba 10 inch shaper which save me a fortune in milling cutters.
