Thread: vertical slide mod
06/02/2022 20:19:27

Good evening everyone. I would just like to know if it would be better to modify my myford vertical slide swivel base bracket to 4 fixing bolts and how, as I have read on line that the single bolt types are not very secure ? all advice will be welcome ( I have only just bought this vertical slide second hand single bolt type ) Thanks .

Regards Steve

Good afternoon. I am after information as to the best way to fasten down my Myford ML7 Lathe /cabinet.Will it be better to bolt it to the concrete solid floor or to rest it on anti vibration material,I have got some 16mm thick anti vibration material strips. And then level the lathe bed. Thanks regards Steve

Thread: ML7 lathe bed

Good afternoon. I bought a Myford ml 7 and cabinet years ago but never used it it is a very old machine .But now i need a small project to keep me sane So I thought I would like to use this lathe but firstly it the movement on the saddle is loose on the bed at the chuck end but tight as you go towards the tailstock. and also chatters when turning a small piece of mild steel I have tried the main chuck bearings for movement but these seem ok(no movement up/down or end float  If this lathe bed needs re grinding were would be the best /cheapest place to have it done . around the Bury/ Manchester area and at what cost. All advice appreciated.Thanks

Regards steve
