|Thread: lathe wanted|
Whereabouts are you located, roughly.
|Thread: How do I adjust the quill?|
Thank you for the update, always good to know when a resolution is acheived.
|Thread: J&S 540 Manual PDF|
Have you tried lathes.co.uk ?
|Thread: Overload trip|
Right, 8amps and 230vac would be a suitable size for a regular motor overload device however a temperature sensing motor protection thermistor might be a better solution.
This link is to an American source but gives a good insight into the device.
Thank you MichaelG, I hadn't read or adsorbed that bit of the title, I'll sit in the corner quietly for a bit.
May I ask what the voltage of the motor is and is it ac or dc?
|Thread: Very soft stretchy rubber grommets, where from?|
I think I know the type of thing you are looking for but for the life of me I can't name them.
In the meantime is there anything suitable from this grommet company....
|Thread: Copper Round Head Rivets|
The power of Google ....
|Thread: nylon gib strip grub screws?|
Try "self locking grub screws" to get started.
Some similar here - **LINK**
|Thread: Piston rings|
Why not use what is specified, worst price I've seen was £4 a metre.
|Thread: Yet more confusion!|
Who jumped and where?
|Thread: Unimat 3 - lost my variable speed.|
A bridge rectifier does not control voltage only ensures DC voltage.
|Thread: Nylon for axle boxes ?|
Try looking at Acetal.
|Thread: Jan Ridders Pressure Controlled 2 stroke Engine|
Congratulations, well deserved.
|Thread: Workshop headphones|
If you search the net for "wireless ear defenders" you will find quite a range.
|Thread: 1.5 hp dc motor|
What machine did it come from, this might gives clues to the controller ?
|Thread: Merry Christmas from Australia|
Thank you and the seasons greetings to you and yours.
|Thread: Combi Boiler fault finding|
Only thing that I would add is to start the job in the morning, then if you need something else the chances are the suppliers are still open.
|Thread: Source of Aluminium Lined Plastic Water Pipe?|
Not sure about antenna length effects here but two possible alternatives maybe -
Plastic tubing made around a spiral metal wire. The wire is continuous but going around the tube diameter could triple (pi*d) the length.
Second option is externally braided tubing, a bit like brake hoses etc.
|Thread: Mini-Lathe Repair|
My mini-lathe (Chester) has instructions how to lubricate the head, a bit hap-hazard but there all the same. Check your instruction set.
Mind you, a good stall can do all sorts of damage if you're unlucky.
