|Thread: Boxford missing a Nut|
So I finally jumped in and brought myself a Boxford Lathe, and currently just fixing all the issues. Managed to figure out how to take the play out the cross slides etc.
However just notices a small bolt missing. The thread is a little damaged but looks like it could be a M6x1.25. But as it’s a British machine made in 1952 I’m surprised it’s metric?
Anyone have any pearls of wisdom or knowledge they can shine on the situation.
|Thread: Shaft Tolerance|
Im new to machining parts and was wandering about the correct Dia to machine a shaft to?
I have a shaft that has a bush (20mm ID) pressed onto the end giving it a snug fit. What size do I machine the shaft to to ensure the snug fit but not to split the bush when pressing it into position?
|Thread: Tig Welder recommendation|
Everyone will have their own opinion of whats cheap, however I tried the cheap TIG inverter a few years ago, needless to say it serverd as a starting point and a learning exercise. Six months later I sold all the Cheap stuff and went for a R-Tech. Very happy with the upgrade.
|Thread: Hello from Kent|
