Thread: What lathe
23/01/2021 10:59:12

Yeah your right I apologise for the posts I jus got stressed out because a few people jumped on me over the fault machines. I came on here the get some advice of some proper craftsman an engineers as iv seen some of the work created. With regards to the legality of me making custom parts for sub 12lb air rifles I can assure you I am completely in my legal rights to do this but anyway I do apologise an I would like to learn from the Group an start again

I was using tpi on the myford mate

I don’t get why you can’t understand that the lead screw was moving when I moved the the carriage that was the reason it was double threaded I’m not guessing this it is a fact

1/2” x20 unf for the Barrel but 1.5 pitch for the 2 end caps I use a tap for the barrel

Look pal I totally agree with what your saying and yes I am inexperienced but if I’m saying there was a fault with the motor an it took out the board that’s what happened an the second machine had a bad lead screw an yes it wasn’t very good running at low speeds hence why I sent it back for something more suitable. But if I could produce good work on the old myford then I’d expect to be able to on the newer machine. With regards to the back and forth it’s obvious it’s not a forum for me

An to the decent people on here I apologise for my language

22/01/2021 19:17:18

Look I came on here to tap into people’s knowledge but instead got told that I obviously caused the problems I was having so sort your selfs out an stop being **** that’s it. Obviously I am pretty new to this but one thing I do know is them machines were not fit for purpose so get over your little complex the second Machine was still running when returned ****************

Go on mate you know best load of know it all’s on here I take it shouldn’t have bothered lol the 2 db8vs where defective lol it’s a well documented problem on this forum that’s why I joined but never mind bunch off geeks

22/01/2021 18:41:23

No mate there was play in the actual lead screw itself I don’t reverse the machine I pull it bk to my original scratch cut with the tail stock used as a stop to ensure good position

22/01/2021 18:25:23

Fair point apology’s

22/01/2021 17:54:48

An not to mention the lead screw had in unadjustable play it an would double thread the work. Great service from Chester but bad experience with them 2 particular machines

22/01/2021 17:51:03

I was doing light cuts on Aluminium 1.5 pitch screw cuts for air rifle silencers no way a £1200 machine shouldn’t be able to handle that the myford dispute it’s problems was all over it an could perform this task effectively

22/01/2021 16:43:31

To be honest I’m after a solid machine with a gearbox for screw cutting probably on 3phase any recommendations?

Thread: What lathe
22/01/2021 14:18:29

Hi quick question, I bought a myford ml7 to make up some air rifle silencers an dispute it being a well built quality machine I soon found myself on speed dial to myford ordering parts for a restoration project as I like things right, I soon got sick of waiting for parts to turn up to find I needed something else so I sold it on an decided to buy a Chester db8vs as it looked to suit my needs. Well first one I got went pop an took the motor an board out an the second one I received had a botched lead screw an a faulty motor that would start smoking while I was screw cutting. So my question is what would I be best putting my money into for a good machine? Boxford Colchester?

Thread: Hi hope your ready for all the newbie questions lol
