|Thread: Threading on Colchester triumph 7 1/2|
What change gears do you run for metric. All I have are the 120T,42T and 36T which don't work for unless I've missed something on setup. Leadscrew is a 4Tpi. Serial No of lathe is 4/46477.
Any help would be appreciated.
The big idler in the middle doesn't appear to move vertically only in a left to right arc.
Been trying to cut threads on this old girl for a while, think I'm missing a gear and I'm hoping someone can help me out. Also I need to know the age of the lathe, is this possible from the serial number.
|Thread: 1.5 hp dc motor|
|Anyways ..... back to the job in hand and on topic ,I'm confused enough without being side tracked by the shocking stories (No pun intended 😉 |
Well turned on the PCB the red light bottom right corner beside the dc output lit up had the pot wired as shown turned the pot and nothing happened, swapped the red and black wires around and still nothing . I'm wondering if the caps are blown .
|I too have had multiple 240v shocks over the years . My father was thrown across his workshop years ago by a poorly earthed 415v welder plug he nearly lost all the strength in his right arm ,never did fully recover from it . |
|Thanks Dave ,been having a few sherbits this evening ,best not try powering up the motor tonight . Appreciate your input .|
|If you don't hear from me you'll know it gone tits up 😂🤣I'm having a beer just now will have a look later on 😉.|
Some more photos of the PCB , motor runs really smooth albeit at slow rpm 😁.

Now I'm confused (not hard) which is it ? 240vdc or 110vdc . I've been researching YouTube and the net ,and I'm thinking of going the SRC motor controller and bridge rectifier route , but things like 240vdc being more dangerous simply worries me 🤔😐. So can anyone say for definite what this motor is , I'm tempted to throw it back in the skip 😁😂. On a side note , I'm not needing this motor to run full tilt but will it have torque at low rpm say at 100-200 rpm

There wasn't any display in the middle it was missing ,and as far I could see the circuit board I have was the only one .
What would you suggest , I wouldn't know where or what to look for ,more so not knowing what to look for .
So I can't use what's in the photos ?
It's off a treadmill don't know what model . I have the stop start and the speed control switches, I forgot to take the power on switch .

|My wife has the all singing and dancing treadmill in the spare bedroom and hardly uses it . |
Was at recycle centre today and score a dc motor . The guys there let me strip all the parts I might need . Next is how I'm going to get this thing working ,kinda hoping you guys on here might know 🤔.
|Thread: 3 phase vs single phase|
Hi Mark , the 2hp motor was total overkill . The lathe is 12x24 Fortis (clausing derived). I've now fitted the 1/2hp motor now , I do notice a difference and in future will have to be more patient in my turning ...ie... smaller cuts 🤔. I'll probably look for a 3/4-1hp motor in the future .
|I tried to tell er indoors that the lathe isn't what's chewing the power it's the bloody condenser tumble dryer 😂🤣|
