|Thread: I want to fit an ML7 top slide to a Super 7 cross slide|
I am renovating a Myford Super 7 lathe, part of this involves fitting DRO to the apron and cross slide.
Any thoughts, ideas. dimensions drawings especially with the position of the ML7 swivel hole would be appreciated,
|Thread: Myford S7 saw table bits|
Thank you Alan
Thanks for the kind offer, I am sure I can fabricate something with the help of the picture and the saw table.
I am looking for a fence and clamp for a Myford Series 7 saw table.
Has anybody any going spare?
Otherwise I do have an advert in the wanted section of the classifieds
|Thread: Myford fourway tool holder info.|

I have a Myford 1410 four way tool holder that is missing ths tool clamping screws.
Can anybody tell me what size and thread they are?
|Thread: My first (ongoing) project|
Thanks for all the replies.
Rod interesting pictures first one I have seen with a horizontal boiler.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New year to all.
Thanks for the links Jason should keep me occupied
There is a Yahoo forum called 4L that is interested in logging and equipment. in the Pacific Coast Redwood forest's.
I posted the picture attached on the forum asking for the full size boiler dimensions, I was given these plus the information that the "making" of 1"=1' model had bee written up with drawings in the Modeltec magazine in the late 80's
After a bit of searching I have just got the drawings in my possession so I know have information on smaller details
Thank you both for you replies.
Yes Jason I agree if the engine had been produced the sledge would have been wooden.
Most of the pictures I have seen show the workings mounted on an I beam frame and then mounted on the sledge.
I am trying to produce a model of the 1862 patent drawing "somebodies thoughts" .
I was in two minds about how to make the sledge but felt that a model of an "idea" was allowed a bit of " license" and felt that a solid frame followed the drawing and was more substantial if I wanted it to run.
I look forward to your further input as the drawing is a bit lacking in detail.
I have attached a few pictures.
|Thread: compressor - automatic transmission ffluid|
Answered a question for me.
|Thread: 110v transformer for compressor|
Thanks for all the help
Thanks for all the info perhaps I should expand a bit,
The compressor is fitted with a yellow 110v plug so I assume it has run from a yellow site transformer.
The motor does not have any information on it.
It is not intended to run it for long periods, I got hold of it to supply compressed air to run a couple of small steam engines for my grandsons amusement. So fill the tank and run the engines refill as required.
"Never assume it makes an ass of you and me"
I have a Fox 110v Side Stack Air Compressor.
The only information I can find for it refers to a Fox CF2600 Side Stack Air Compressor - 240v 2.5hp 16 Litre,
110v is an unknown quantity to me.
Would a 2.5 hp motor be used with 110v?
What Kva 240v to 110v transformer would I need?
|Thread: Travelling steady bolt thread Super 7|
Super 7 cross slide traveling steady mounting bolt.
What is the thread in the cross slide?
|Thread: Any ideas on this?|
Further to this.
I have found a reference in the April 1987 Model Engineer of a new Hemingway taper turning attachment for the ML7.
The description is of a partly machined kit with a ground guide bar with micro screw adjustment and a machined angle bracket it could be made to fit other lathes.
Has anybody information on old Hemingway kits?
|Thread: Myford books|
A Man and His Lathe by L. H. Sparey
I have at last got my Myford Super 7/7R lathe working, it was assembled from parts I was given and used parts bought from e-bay it is a mk1, mk2 hybrid.
I have this book MYFORD SERIES 7 MANUAL which was useful during the assembly
Are there any other books by Sparey or Westbury that are specific to using a Myford lathe?
|Thread: Any ideas on this?|
The Hemingway Mk2 kit is modeled on the Myford original, cannot find details of the MK1.
The angle casting has a possible trademark two interlocked C's one above the other with the bottom one reversed to make the two look like an S.
