Nice job.

Thread: Brass shaping
30/10/2017 13:20:39

Would a Dremel with a burr head cut out the 'O's.

Thread: A bit of math - lenght of belt in pulley systems.

Lots of calculators out there but if you want to do it longhand then here it is ....


Thread: Steel hardness numbers
26/10/2017 22:46:11

As Norman says, an angle grinder does the business, certainly did for mine.

Thread: Small Number Plate Required For 2" Minnie
25/10/2017 20:09:56

These people might be worth a phone call perhaps...



Thread: How do I check the capacitors on my Warco Mill?

A start capacitor may not have enough capacity to kick the needle of a multimeter.

If you carefully short it through a large resistor that should do the job without causing any drama.



If you have a simple electric soldering iron then they are very good for discharging capacitors.

Thread: Electric chain hoists/carriages
18/10/2017 22:50:27

I haven't investigated fully myself but.... could you use a modified electric garage door motor/drive unit to move your hoist along it's support rail?

Thread: WM180 Saddle adjustment
18/10/2017 16:23:53

If you look in the manual you should see an exploded diagram of the saddle.

Towards the front there is shown a strip of metal with three grub screws with locknuts, these are the adjustment screws.

You will need to remove the front apron to gain access.

Thread: Black 5 ready again to run
18/10/2017 14:02:46

Well done, mind you six adults could have needed a diet

Thread: Torque problems: lathe, 3-phase, inverter...
17/10/2017 15:55:12

What's it like if you disconnect your improvement control and revert back to the original system of operation?

Thread: Linisher cuts out, what to do...?
17/10/2017 13:18:36

Well done Richard, glad it's all working and thanks for the update.

Thread: Bolts & Setscrews Help Needed
15/10/2017 12:19:36

I believe in your case that the dogtooth is simply to aid the installation of the bolt in a production line. It guides the bolt into the hole for a faster fit.

Well done Andy, it must be tricky getting it going again with so many people in the workshop with you. laugh

Thread: Black 5 ready again to run
13/10/2017 23:31:16

Fingers crossed for you, not that you really need. Sounds like you've got all the bases covered.

Hope it's a good day.

It is often safer to remove all previous wiring and start afresh following a wiring diagram.

12/10/2017 19:46:21

SOD, yes that is correct, good picture.

Thread: Spring is in the air
11/10/2017 22:10:21

Quick internet search brings up quite a few but this one seems promising...


Thread: Starter Switch

Ian, thanks, I stand corrected.

The reason for using all three overload contacts is because if one contact is unused there will be an imbalance across the three. Not so important with the older style overloads but the newer ones can be more sensitive. All overload manufacturers schematics will show all three contacts in use.

10/10/2017 20:08:48

Ian, the purpose of looping through all of the poles is to get better performance of the overload.

Did I suggest that the feed should go through the overload first?

Unequal loading can cause nuisance tripping.

Your assumption that the original poster, Andy, is unable to assimilate the schematic is rather condescending don't you think?
