Thread: BV25 Lathe?
07/04/2013 18:51:03

Thanks for the answer, but the lathe shown in the links is not the BV25B lathe, some similarities but anther concept.

It has been very difficult to get this users manual and also other info on the lathe.

I have a BV25B-L about 6 years old , but used only some hours due to bad health.

I do not have the users manual for it. Are there anybody that have this electronically? I would very much appreciate to get it (buy).

I have a BV25B-L.

I miss a change gear for the thread setup. Its the 75 teeth . Where can I buy one???

I have modified the lathe slightly. New belt wheel on the motor with the original ratio and one track with half the diameter because the 115 rpm speed when turning threads was a bit high for me. I changed the belts from the chinese ones to some from Mitsubishi. There was a rumble when in lower gears with the chinese belt, but with the Mitsubishi there is no rumble and it sounds tight andgod.. Must have been the bad construction in the chinese belts that made this chatter.

The compound where not nice to use as it felt variable hard . I have installed 2 thrust bearings and its as night and day. Easy to use.

i have also put a quick change tool post.-

Am very satisfied with the lathe
