Thread: Myford wiring
13/03/2013 15:15:20

Hi folks.

I have a Myford super 7 with a Brook,Crompton,Parkinson 550w single phase motor. I wired this in to a Dewhurst reversing switch as per the wiring diagram in the Myford manual, but when I tried to start the motor the RCD in the house tripped.

Upon firther inverstigation of the motor internal wiring, i see two fixed links between terminal AZ-Z and A-T. So, my question is are these links meant to be there? Or are they here because the previous owner had a 3 pin plug wired directly into the motor and the only way of starting it was by switching the wall socket on? I have attached a pic of the terminals for clarity.

Thread: MT3 Imperial and MT3 Metric differences
26/01/2013 17:18:14

Ok, after having another look at this size of mill and what I would like to do with it, I think I am going to try and get one that can accommodate larger work pieces.

There was a Warco MD30B just sold on ebay, and that seemed and ideal size, is there anything on the market of this size under £1000?

Thanks for the replys and clearing that up for me.

Hi Joe, Thanks for your reply. I think you may well be right.

Hi I am looking to buy a Sieg SX2 Plus mill to accompany the Myford lathe I have. I see on the Arc Euro website that they do a MT3 spindle in both metric and imperial, is it just the drawbar threads that they are refering to or is the something else?
