|Thread: Myford super 7 with gearbox - leadscrew stopped turning|
As Philip . R suggests, I'm guessing the three position ( A, B or C ) lever on the top of the gearbox is between positions ie not engaged The Myford manual says this can be engaged (gently) with the lathe running. Or it could also be that the sliding selector lever on the front of the gearbox is not fully latched down (lathe should be stopped before moving this lever)

|Thread: Myford Between Centres Boring Bar|
Photo from Myford's Ebay listing.
It's a bit primitive really. The tool bit goes in one hole and is secured by a piece 1/4" diam bar with a flat tapering to the end on one side. Not sure if I have described it very clearly, if not I can take a photo of mine tomorrow.

|Thread: Problem with DRO's memory or with mine?|
According to my manual, the Sleep function is NOT APPLICABLE TO the 3 Axis version.
Just been to the workshop (BRR) and tried my 2 axis DRO on the milling machine
The DRO must be in INC mode, pressing HA puts it to sleep mode and the displays go blank as if powered down but still tracks any axis movements which are displayed when HA is pressed again. But if the DRO is switched off either by the rear switch or wall socket any axis movement is not stored.
Gordon and Clive replied as I was typing !!

|Thread: Lathe Setup / Tests|
Looking at the Myford Inspection sheets:
test 16, work held in chuck, permissible error .0000" to .0008"
test 17, between centres permissible error 0000" to .0004"
So I think you are doing well with your test results.

Laminate the printed instructions and use thin double sided tape to fix it in place. I use this method to produce control panel overlays etc with good results.
