"There are lots of machine tapers, but four similar ones with the same rate of taper are Morse, Jacobs, Jarno, and Brown & Sharpe"

This is not the case - they all have similar rates of taper but certainly not identical ones. They are therefor not interchangeable.

You misread me (although I may not have made myself crystal clear), and only part quoted me (I went on to say Jarno and Brown and Sharpe tapers are not the same).

I know they are different tapers, I never said they are interchangeable, what I meant was similar as in they have a linear taper, not a stepped or compound taper like R8 or NTMB.

There are lots of machine tapers, but four similar ones with the same rate of taper are Morse, Jacobs, Jarno, and Brown & Sharpe.

'Jarno' was the pen name of Oscar J. Beale, who in real life was basically the head of engineering at Brown & Sharpe in the late 19 th century.

Despite this, Jarno and Brown & Sharpe tapers are not the same. Go figure!

'MJ' might refer to a Jarno taper.

Indeed, there's no better place than t'interweb for starting false rumours!

So were they hacked by the ransomers?

Was it a disgruntled purchaser trying to get his money back?

Note - this was supposed to be a witty comment, as a Warco milling machine owner I am not having a pop at them wink 2.

And Ketan, thanks for posting this smiley.

Thanks to Chris, Russ, and Robbo, I now also have a set of instructions to go with my Kennedy saw cool.

Depending on the circumstances, another option could be to TIG weld the holes up and start again?

Are your "Instructions in pdf" from the original 2-page description and general maintenance instructions?

If not I can send these to Russ, and yourself. Will need email addresses, as this forum will not accept files in pdf format, only jpeg.

I have sent this pdf to so many people I have lost count. You can't beat spreading the word, even though it is a brief word.

As I, too, have a Kennedy, could I be a cheeky bugger and ask if I could have a copy too.......pretty please wink 2.

Thread: Myford Super 7 - Crompton Motor cuts out at high speeds

Hi, sorry for the delayed reply. I have only just had a day that I could play with my Myford.

I have just looked at the data plate on the motor, and it says for BHP 1/ I think that relates to about 1/2 HP.

So, as there is little heat generation, I am assuming that, based on the above, i need a more powerful motor to run the highest speed.

I am only turning 1/2" to 1/8" at the moment, so I don't need the highest speeds immediately. I just assumed that if Myford supplied the motor, it would be sufficient for the job.

In the long term, any views of 3 phase? Is the extra speed control worth it?

Many thanks again, and sorry for the delay in replying,


1/3 KW is 333 watts, 1/2 HP is 373 watts, so yes it is slightly less than 1/2 HP.

It makes me feel physically sick to see this and know that children around the World are dying of malnutrition.

Children around the world aren't dying of malnutrition because Mr Mordashov has a big boat.

Children around the world are dying of malnutrition for many reasons.

Children around the world are dying of malnutrition because the circumstances they are born into cannot support them.

Children around the world are dying of malnutrition because there are 7+ billion people on the planet and it cannot support them.

It is cruel, but it is nature's way of finding a balance.

Also look for HSS drill blanks. You'll have to look for long series if you need 8" length.

Is it a British carb, or European?

BSF has a 22 tpi form, it may well be a special thread cut to a BSF form.

Can you see if it is a 55 deg or 60 deg thread form?

If it is down to the Axminster, and then the only decision is 1ph or 3ph, given that you already have 3ph so no additional cost for phase conversion, it's a no brainer - go for the 3ph, it will be a much nicer machine (particularly as it will give you an extra 8 speeds).
