|Thread: Faceplate was the cause|
OK so your on about a chuck backplate - NOT a faceplate.
Edited By Ziggar on 03/02/2014 14:04:14
whether the faceplate is out of true or not, surely you use a DTI or something similar to center work pieces so that they run true ?
can you not simply turn the faceplate so that it does run true ?
from what ive learnt over the small amount of time ive put in ive learnt that you dont rely on chucks or faceplates to ever be true to your spindle unless you have worked them to be so

|Thread: Myford Speed 10 Headstock Damage Control|
when i had my ML10 it was at least 3 months before i realised that the headstock holding bolts were actually loose. i discovered this one day when trying to drill something with the drill in the tailstock and pushing into the chuck held part, the actual headstock casting slid backwards against the force of the drill in the tailstock being pushed forward. I then had to take the time to retighten the bolts holding the headstock in place and hope that they were tightened correctly and with enough torque .
could this perhaps be something to do with your problem? one of the headstock holding clamps being loose allowing the headstock to twist a little, giving you an increased runout ?
something to check maybe
|Thread: Carbide Parting inserts|
perhaps you simply need to learn how to part off with your lathe
its not as simple as it looks, although it isnt rocket science either, just needs to be done right
you seem to be blaming the supplier for what seems to be your fault, probably being too aggresive with tthe tool
learn to part off properly - or at least better, and the inserts are a great way of doing it
have a look on youtube for examples of how to do it
|Thread: Virus on this website?|
it is obviously an incorrect url to an intended ad for this website
simply typing in the ip address of the url takes you to http://www.adbutler.com/ where you can draw your own conclusions
i will once again suggest that adblock plus is installed in all browsers to stop these crappy ads appearing

i think the clutch has to be engaged when making the adjustment - so that is the clutch lever towards the left - in towards the clutch mechanism

|Thread: Poly V Belt Conversion|
unfortunately i only have the one lathe available [the S7] so wouldn't be able to do this conversion
it would be a nice touch if hemingways were to offer a pre machined pulley if wanted/needed
perhaps something for them to think about ?
Edited By Ziggar on 16/12/2013 18:13:43
thanks for that
i always thought that the catalogues would simply reflect the website contents
seems i was wrong
off to hemingways site i go
do you have a link to the kit you are referring to because all i can find is the kit for the main 4 step pulley arrangement between the countershaft and the mandrel
i didnt realise that the motor pulley was part of the deal, nor does it say anything about it on the hemingways website. unless you mean the countershaft pulley.
either way, im looking forward to regular updates from you on this. lots of photos and updates as you go along
good luck with it
