Thread: Myford Change Gear trouble
16/07/2019 23:03:40

Before you leap to any further conclusions.

Consider if the Anchor Pin, part no A3015 Dwg Ref 203 is correctly assembled into the base of the gearbox. Its depth is set by a single Socket Setscrew (from below). If correctly set this is what hold the quadrant in the correct position to ensure the gears do in fact properly align, without adding any spacers to the gear train.

Early TV and radio chassis were also similarly dimpled, not only flattens but more important, it stiffens the plate. They used very thin sheet steel in those days.

That is the downside of soluble cutting oils, neat oils avoid that problem.

Thread: Myford Super 7 Top Slide Base - Alternatives?

It is not a big task to have one made from a block of Cast iron, takes time and a working lathe, Someone may make an offer if you cannot find a replacement.

Thread: Electricity Supply
09/06/2019 12:43:25

Nobody has out together the requirement for adequate electricity generation (by any means) to power all these future EVs and trucks. Please do not just say renewables, frankly the grid will not cope in its present state.

Oh I forgot, our brilliant MPs (of all parties) think smart meters are the answer, best used to determine who to switch off.

Thread: Basic questions about wax chucks
30/05/2019 19:47:12


Modern wood glues give you quite a choice of open time, if you use Resin based such as Aerolite 306. Cascamite is wasteful since it is a one time mix, too much and you throw the surplus away. West System has different hardeners to give positioning time as did Aerolite.


On metal, superglues are fine for me, I do not find the smell a problem.

Thread: Ballscrews?

HOWARDT gave the best answer, don't use a ball screw. You have not given any reason why you wish to use a ball screw as opposed to any alternative.
