Thread: Just bought an ML7, what should i do first?
07/09/2019 07:42:07

Hi Shaun, Firstly welcome to the forum.

So many questions and there are many people on the forum who will help. It does help if you give your location as local supliers etc can be suggested. There dosnt seem to be anything I have seen that can't be fixed or repaired e.g. the back gear broken. When you start to strip always take pictures and try and take note in what order it helps. The back gear is not for reverse but it is like a low gear to slow the spindle speed ie for screw cutting and the gears on the left are for feed drive to the leadscrew. Have a look on the Myford website as there is lots of information on there like parts list etc. Good luck

Thread: Grinding cup wheel help
31/08/2019 08:13:40

Hi Steve for grinding a HSS tool I would use a WA100 grinding wheel for finishing it depends on the machine you are using and wheel diameter. I have an adjustable diamond which rests on the edge of the footrest to dress the wheel. On a cup wheel you can also use it to dress the side face. Make sure that the gap from wheel to rest is as close as possible. For a screw cutting tool I have the skill to grind by hand most forms using a thread form gauge and a radius gauge set but I have been grinding for 50 plus years. Practice and having good lighting and a solid toolrest helps.

Thread: Tool post project
29/08/2019 07:05:09

Hi Chris you don't have to have an angle on the rear of the clamp you only need a step and shoulder to bear against which would be simpler to machine and more stable. You don't need such a large angle on the front side of the clamp which would give more thread length to tool clamp grub screws and then you could lessen the amount you unscrew to remove the toolholder in close proximity with job.

I have a feeling that different styles e.g. aluminium type tips against steel tips have a different tool height you would need a different tool for different tips. and different manufactures don't guarantee a fixed height with another manufacturer.

Thread: Dails Caliper has a mystery component in box?
20/08/2019 11:12:50

Hi I have a dial caliper and in the box is a copper coloured strip which is used to adjust the dial if it jumps a tooth. You slide it between the rack and gear and then slide the carriage along a small amount and then pull out strip it may take a few tries to get it right.
