Thread: Lathe - dead centre wont reach the workpiece
09/08/2019 08:45:04

I had the same problem on my Warco 1224 and to over come it I simply turned the top slide to 45 degree and re aligned the QCTP to be square to the work - this allows the saddle closer to the chuck and get the tail stock closer to the work

I also had to grind a 45 degree chamfer on the tail stock casting to get the top slide to travel where I needed it to be

Morning Plasma

That looks good, did you have any issues tapping or fitting the eye bolts - i am guessing they are not titanium ? I was thinking back to when I use to use it a lot in Petro chem and we were always warned of dis similar materials and Titanium

either way it looks good

if you search for hand rollers for the printing industry - you will need something like a 60+ shore hardness

we use these to apply flexo printing plates to the cylinder's as well as the ink tech's use them when taking a draw down of the printing inks

I think he is wanting to engrave and work with acrylics but not sure

He lives over on the IOW so I dont get to see him often

hence not sure what he is trying to achieve

thank you, my son is now reviewing the alternative machines but has stated he is tending towards having a go at constructing his own.....

Could/should be interesting

thank you to all that have commented

this is exactly what I needed - I will pass the above onto my son for further investigation

Thanks Fizzy

you obviously type faster than me...

cheers for the link

08/07/2019 15:48:27

Ok So I have spoken to my son and the "working Envelope" isn't an issue

based on the above what would be a reasonable entry level type of machine to go for?

The programming side of things isn't an issue as he is a professional Computer programmer by trade

Thread: Do you clean your workshop at the end of the day?
28/06/2019 10:51:24

Only when the machines disappear under the swarf and I can't find any tools on the bench

Then it gets a deep clean that can take hours.......

But its such a good feeling when I keep finding my tools that I thought had gone walk about..HAHA


Thread: What method do you use to find center height for your lathe bit?
27/06/2019 09:48:51

I use one of these and it works for me - nice and simple




Thread: Easy Button Die Storage Solution
20/06/2019 10:05:02

It depends on how you keep your workshop conditioned surely

mine is dry and warm in the UK and I have never had an issue of rusting due to damp conditions

Thread: Warco WM16 machine vice
20/06/2019 09:54:10

I have the WM16 and that's the same vice I fitted but as stated I have not needed the swivel operation yet

It is handy if you do need the vice offset and the height isn't an issue either



Thread: Easy Button Die Storage Solution
20/06/2019 09:41:08

For me I like it - its simple and functional and easily stored

nice one



Thread: Metal Bandsaw - Chester H80 or Warco CY90
18/06/2019 08:51:33

Morning Ian, I have the Warco CY 90 and not had any issues after I re aligned the main drive wheels for the saw band and adjusted the the blade guides to cut vertical

I have cut quite large dia bar both ally and BMS with no problems

Had the saw now for a good many years
