|Thread: Warco VMC or GH Universal|
Collected the mill teamster day and it now installed in the workshop.
Well if have bought a VMC with 3 axis DRO power traverse. I will pick it up on Sunday.
Thanks for the detailed reply. I like you think the VMC looks beefier, I note your comments on noise. A quick search confirms a few comments on th GH being noisy. It looks like a VMC it is, just leaves R8 it MT.
Thanks to all for the replies. Andy
I did have a look but couldnt find much in the way of the pros and cons of both.
I currently have a Warco WM14, it does most of what i need but at times im close to its limitations.
I am thinking of a Warco VMC or GH universal, whats the for and against for both.
I am sure i have read the GH is noisy due to the gear drive.
Thanks in advance, Andy
|Thread: Squareness gauge|
€3500 plus carriage and another €58 for a cardboard storage box. Ouch
I’m thinking £2000 ish
I have just sent an email to Kunz, looks just the job. Thanks
Work related so sorry. The object in the photo is called an Indi Square and we use it to check the squareness of a part relative to its mounting surface.
I need another one and contacting tool suppliers they have both offered height gauge but i doubt it will be that accurate. We calibrate the Indi square to 2 tenths over it 12" travel. Any ideas anyone,
|Thread: Bench grinder wheel wobble|
I do like the idea Harold Halls,
Thanks Micky T
I’ve just turned up a 3” x 1/2” disc. Fitted on the grinder with a 8mm wide diamond wheel and without frying it only runs out about 10 thou.
Thanks for the replies
I’ve got a good quality 8” bench grinder that I can swap grinding wheels for polishing mops and put the grinding wheel back on and it runs true.
My old 6” Aldi special is a different story. I fancy putting a CBN and diamond wheel on it. The supplied washers seem part of the problem, has anyone managed to method to get the wheels to run true.
|Thread: What geen grinding wheels for tools|
Looking at buying a 6” diamond wheel, what’s most versatile. A bevel wheel or flat.
|Thread: What fuses Warco lathe and Chester mill|
I emailed both Warco and Chester. Chester have confirmed 10amp in both fuse holders. I have not heard back from Warco but will update when I do.
Thanks for your replies. You’ve now got me thinking, the numbers / letters on the fuse on the control side in the mill looks like it starts with a T. Meaning time delay.
Both machines have 2 fuses on the control panel. I thought I may get an answer on here before I contact them tomorrow. Also if they are like me at work, I only quote our part number for a bought in item.
Can someone tell me the correct fuses for a Warco wm14 mill and a Chester DB8 lathe. I bought both second hand and want to get some spare fuses, and can’t see anything in the manual. And can’t read for certain what’s on the fuses in both machines.
Thanks in advance Andy
|Thread: milling machine which one ?|
