|Thread: Resilient motor mount retaining clips.|
I've just got back to this page, thanks again for updates, I have made the clamps now, they're not perfect but they do the job.
Looks like I'll be making something up.
Thanks for help Ega.
This forum is really helpful and friendly.
This group is so helpful.
Ega, you are correct with the bits, it's just the clips that I need, I've put mine somewhere safe...... 😂 Can't recall where it is though so I consider them lost.
I haven't actually thought about that. I didn't consider this to be a solely myford problem just a motor issue.
I'll give them a call later.
Hi, I'm trying to put the original single phase motor back on to myford ml7 but I can't find the retaining clips, can these be bought? If yes would you send me the link please.
I've tried searching but I can't find the item, maybe I'm using the wrong description.
|Thread: Warco wm18|
Thanks guys. I have dropped them a message.
The main reason for asking about the gas strut is the ball and cup are both fitted but the ram is not, surely they wouldn't fit the balls and cup's??
Hi everyone, have just aquired a warco wm18 that has never been used, and when I disassembled the machine it came to light that the gas strut is missing, do you any of you knowledgeable people know the length or find an online manual.
Was surprised that there is no online manual.
|Thread: Sieg g1 power hacksaw|
Thanks for the replies, I only asked as when I posted a video on the myford Facebook page someone said that the stroke needed increasing and after looking at the online manual it didn't seem possible but thought I'd better check here.
Hi, I have just aquired this power hacksaw and I don't have the manual for it, I've quickly read the online version and I can't find any information on altering the stroke length as someone has told me that it needs to be increased, any help or advice would be much appreciated.
|Thread: Clarke cl300m motor|
I should of mentioned that I knew Machine Mart were the distributor of Clarke tools, I was looking for something either cheaper or improved over the original motor.
Hi, my motor has just burnt out & I need to purchase a new or reconditioned one any help on where to purchase, I've phoned Arc Euro trade and they tell me it's not the same as the one in the Sieg c3!! is this correct?.
If this is in the wrong section would the mods please move.
|Thread: Clarke cl300m|
Hi, thanks for reply, been reading your other posts on pcb faults and found it interesting
I have removed the motor and powered it of a 12v supply and the motor turns, very slowly so i'm assuming the motor is OK now so i'm guessing it will be the PCB board.
I'm not very good with electronics but my brother is a whizz and will be taking it away with him to test.
Hi, Just acquired the above lathe which i knew had a fault on the motor or PCB board, i'm now sure it's the motor now but i wanted to know what the length the brushes should be, mine are 1/2 inch long. There appears to be no burn marks on the armeture or commutator but the motor arcs really bad and will blow the fuse. Just had a quote for new motor £102 + p+p. Ouch!!
Any help would be appreceated.
