Hi Dan welcome to the forum. I have an M type like you and there are quite a few mods and bits I have done to ny lathe they ard in my albums for you to look at. I have bought a few parts from Keith Robinson in shefield you can try him. I will send a personal message with his details.


Thread: fly cutter or face mill
08/05/2019 21:33:55

Hi Martin this is the fly cutter that I use it has a solid tungsten carbide piece as the actual cutter.


It has a 12mm diamiter shank and a 25mm diamiter body with a grub screw to hold the carbide in an angled hole easy to make. If you like I have a spare carbide piece you could have to make your own. You can run it at a fast speed and get a lovely finish and little or no wear on the cutter. Send me a PM if you want me to send the carbide.

Thread: Hello from Swindon
06/05/2019 19:30:51

Hi Peter welcome to the forum I have an M Type just a few years younger than yours and yes you can make a bush to repair the cross slide bush like the one on the top slide. Is the thread in the lead screw ok as that is a bit more involved. I have done a few mods to make the M Type a little easier to use they are in my albums to look at. If you need any further info drop a message. Just where in the country are you based as it helps to suggest supliers etc.

Thread: Make new crossslide feed screw
02/05/2019 16:47:24

Hi Andrew you could screw cut a new nut your self it is only screwcutting internally but with a different shaped cutter i just made a new nut for a adjustable spanner i used a boring bar with a cutter square to the bore an ground to correct width. Why not try a piece of steel before cutting the real one. As for the thread being in the side of the nut just hold it in a 4 jaw chuck.




Have a go you have nothing to lose.

Nice looking mill looks like you have worked well on it. It just needs some work to do. Hope it keeps going and keeps producing parts for a long time.


Thread: Gib on abwood
01/05/2019 08:23:07

Hi Peter the pin on ones I have used in the past had a thread larger than the pin to extract the pin but they were never used as the vice would be clocked level or at an angle when nessesary with a sine bar, and the pins were discarded as not accurate enough.


Thread: Dividing Head for a Sieg SX2P
01/05/2019 08:09:27

Hi I bought a rotary table for my 16v mill and it is a 4 inch size and it has done every thing I wanted but the clamping slots which are cast on to outside of casting cause clamp studs to slip as I tighten it sometimes and I wish I had seen the one at Arc euro which uses slots to clamp with i also had to make an adaptor plate for my one to but th Arc one has one. Dont forget to buy a chuck to fit and make sure it is a low profile one. There is an adaptor to fit a dividing plate etc to there one when you need it.


Thread: Dual speed motor on Hardinge HLV-H - Fast not working
01/05/2019 07:35:26

Hi it sounds like it may be single phasing which may be caused by a bad contactor, a loose wire, or a faulty winding in the motor fail it needs a thorough checking with a meter and a wireing diagram would help.


Thread: 2mt Myford Collet
30/04/2019 21:57:24

Hi Jonathan you would not be the first person to hold a cutter in a three jaw chuck but it depends what you are cutting. If it is tough steel you may have problems but if it was aluminium or brass you may get away with i but you should get a cutter to fit the collet or a collet to fit the cutter. If you were to ring Tracy tools you coukd get a reasonable prices cutter probably next day delivery is it worth risking a cutter moving to ruin the job an d nay be ruining the cutter as well.

Hold in place with centre support and Finnish outside diamiter and face.
