Thread: Myford ML7 not running true and spirals

Thank you for adding the 'Link'. Re: Back gear.

"is my lathe in what? if you mean reverse, no otherwise sorry i dont know what back gear"

Not reverse, but reduction, you have to physically put it into , or out of low gear (Back gear).

Check with the lever adjacent to the chuck.

Slow speed, is your lathe in back gear?

Run-out, are the chuck jaws clean/ swarf free, this is inside the chuck.

Good luck, keep us up to date.

Hi Duncan,

Thanks for the update, I suspected I was pushing my luck.

I trust the case/enclosure is OK.

Good luck, Bear..

Hi Duncan,

I'll jump in and risk losing some body parts.

Ammeter should be in series with the load.

Also I can't see the unit being happy with the red & yellow wires joined.

Regards, Bear..

Thread: Problems with a breadmaker
28/09/2018 20:47:49

Hi Bill,

Take Two:

I'm sure you worded it correctly. It was selective reading on my part.

It depends how many loaves you consume in a week * 52

With home made, you decide what goes into your loaf.

So, you are excluding mice & rat droppings/ drippings, additives etc.

The smell of bread cooking is wonderful.

Regards, bear..

Hi Bill, ~ £90

Panasonic SD2500 Breadmaker - White

We have a Panasonic SD 2500 about 4 years old, had a cheapo previously, no comparison.

+ 1 for fresh yeast, it soon goes off.

Good results with various makes of flour, usual mix is 300g strong white and 200g of wheat meal or country mix,

not sure of the name, but its coarse. Add honey & olive oil + 260ml of water.

Regards, bear..

Thread: Myford belt Tension Lever Stuck!

Thank you, Ian & Jason. Your replies made me smile!

I mentioned safety switch, due to the fact it wouldn't start.

You learn something new every day!


10/07/2018 19:47:04


Is there a safety switch on the belt guard, that you may have disturbed?

Thread: Hitachi 18v battery charger

Is this any help?


12/05/2018 22:27:25

Hi clogs,

I was tasked with a similar charger, saw the burnt resistor, long story, short, gave it back to the owner. He rang me about a week later, he had fixed it with a new resistor. he had found the info. on the 'net. I don't know the resistor value. I will look on the 'net.

Buy one, work out any mods required to suit your needs, then copy it, times nine.
