    Big Old Lathe For Restoration

    Hi, I am selling this for a friend. It lives in his garage here in Bridlington, England. It measures 36+ inches between centres possible even 40 inches with the tailstock in place. It has a swing of six inches over the bed (12" in diameter). There is a single phase 430 volt motor and a system...

    Arduino RPM Application for Sieg Lathes and Mills

    Hi Bob, In response to your statement: “I have yet to solve. I can start and stop but controlling the rpm is not there yet. There is pages on other boards on the subject.” I thought about controlling speed by replacing the potentiometer used now to manually control the speed with a voltage...

    Hi Jules, at the time I was about 12 years old, I’m noW 64, and unfortunately if there are any surviving photographs they ar3 not in my possession. to describe it a bit more: it was a flathead motor. I’m not sure what year the motor was, most likely early 50’s if I had to guess. I do know...

    Bugatti straight 8 cylinder with blower, design, 3D printed molds, castings , machining, assembly

    Your post has reminded me of my youth when I helped my father build a Buick straight eight with eight little Webber carb. We mounted it in an old “rail” dragster frame he had and took it to the track. I remember well the roar it made as he drove it. good luck with your model

    Arduino RPM Application for Sieg Lathes and Mills

    please share what you learn about using the touch screen with us. My next step was to integrate an input device so one could enter a material and It’s diameter then have the program suggest a speed. too bad the controller will not accept a digital speed input. If it could, and I’m not sure it...
