|Thread: Sent lathe back|
Thanks for the replies
Yes I can’t fault Warco for refunding my money but took lots of phone calls to get sorted, I have already purchased the Emco Unimat SL although I have yet to receive it and as I am mostly only going to be making very small brass clock parts it should be okay, only time will tell.
i have seen about the motor shortcomings and the one I have purchased has two motors one on the lathe and one on the mill so maybe they have had an easier life but we will see.
The reason it has to be hex is that the spring let down arbor is hexagon and I need to be able to change to the arbor that fits the square of whatever mainspring barrel I am removing the spring from, the picture in first post is only one of six and each end of each one has a square hole to fit different clock barrel arbors.
That would be an option JasonB if I had a mill.
Thanks for the replies
the tool I want to make is a clock mainspring winder to get the mainspring out of the clock barrel for servicing and or replacing so I will be using it quite a lot .
although I will be using the tool I made regularly I hopefully won’t be using the broach more than once that is why the tool company said I should get the 16mm shank broach and it SHOULD be strong enough to press in , but I would prefer to do it or have it done with rotary. Broaching as I understand it would do a better job job.
update I have a 11mm rotary broach with a 16mm shank but the holder is to expensive for just one job.

new to forum but but I am into clocks not scale models but I joined this forum as I have just purchased a Warco CJ0168 mini lathe and this forum is full of helpful information ,I haven’t used a lathe for about 50 years so I probably have forgot everything,I hope someone that is not into scale models is welcome.
