My iPhone-6 is about to become obsolete.

My Daughters bought me an iphone- 6 some time ago because they thought my old android phone was so yesterday. I have never got used to the iphone and look forward to the excuse to go back to what I had.

Lathe and four jaw look most likely given your equipment availability. Good luck and if possible post a picture of the completed item.

Thread: Suspension Bush material

Material as Hopper has suggested or try glass filled PTFE. I have used glass filled PTFE on motorcycle suspension with good results.

I once bought a set of Guhring (spelling ?) drills 6mm to 10mm by 0.1mm From the start I had to grind nearly all of the to get them to cut.

Thread: hello from Italy

Welcome along Fabio, enjoy the forum.

Thread: Inverter or converter
14/03/2022 17:43:37

Robert, like you I have a 3HP lathe and 2HP mill. The lathe does not support star/delta so I bought a Transwave static inverter. The lathe runs fine on the static inverter but the mill would only run for a short time before tripping out. A friend fitted the mill with a VFD for me and all has been well for over ten years. I am not confident to attempt the wiring, best left to the experts.

Thread: First Lathe - Colchester Triumph (1960s roundhead) vs Warco WM250v
12/03/2022 17:35:30

I was in engineering all my working life and used many Colchester lathes, most of them nice to use. All where worn to some degree. At one place we ran Colchester Triumph 2000, replaced every 5 years totally worn out. industrial lathe's have a hard life in their early days.

Thread: Too lazy or too stupid?
04/03/2022 08:59:29

I have always been a prolific reader, never watch TV and have only looked at You Tube on a few occasions. Google does get a fair bit of use though.

Thread: I need to screw cut a 19 TPI thread.?
28/02/2022 08:57:45

Years ago when I had a Southbend lathe and was faced with cutting a 19 tpi thread I cut a slightly sloppy 20 tpi. Over a few pitches that I required it worked but not ideal or correct.

Thread: hi from Belfast ...
25/02/2022 07:55:52

BASS 666 Welcome along to the forum. I am not a Myford man so no idea about the attachment. I do get over to Belfast two or three times a year when my Wife visits her family and I watch the motorcycle racing. Enjoy the lathe.

Thread: T.P.I.
21/02/2022 20:29:02

10 TPI will be just what you need. I only keep 10 and 14 TPI blades and always cope.

Welcome along Trevor, enjoy the forum and metalwork.

Thread: Learn to use a metal lathe

Good luck with your request, I am to far away to help but a nice thing for a local person to do.

Welcome along Graham, I have not got an answer for you but this should bump the question up to the top. I know some online charts may help but someone will be along to advise you.
