Who is LMS??

Thread: Motor size

NT 3/4 hp on mine for the last 7 years and I haven't stalled it yet (and I do try). I machine a lot of stainless and it takes it in its stride.

Thread: Stud bending on threading
26/04/2022 22:11:30

if you are threading in the vice your chances of a straight thread are pretty slim, much better to put the die holder against your work in the lathe and bring the tailstock to bear against the diestock, turn the chuck by hand whilst advancing the t/stock. obviously all this becomes uneccesary when you have completed your die holder!!!

Thread: What insert tool

Yes they are Warners, I have some but haven't tried them yet (quite expensive)

Thread: Cheap stuff

Thread: Sherline lathe

As it is the socket part of the handle that most people have trouble making why not buy the handles and then make the new male piece to match you lathes threads, that way not altering the lathe.

That’s what the old boys used to do with a countersink bit to stop the chatter marks.

If it’s a S7 mine are pressed in and would think that the pins are shouldered. Looking from the back it looks like there is a large dia bush with a smaller dia pin in the centre. I’ll have a go at pressing one out and see what it’s all about as I don’t use this bit anymore.

Thread: High Speed Bench Drill?
23/04/2022 13:16:06

That’s really nice Dave.

Problem with the hem speed increaser is its reverse rotation, but I have some half finished drawings for one that travels in the right direction, watch this space!!

Thread: Polishing Brass
22/04/2022 23:54:46

18 mm mdf sheet and coat with rouge as a finishing.Or you could try 3M micro polishing sheets.

Thread: Which Grease
22/04/2022 19:11:11

I was always under the impression that grease used for bronze bearings is a bit special as the additives in a lot of standard greases can attack bronze.
