    Vices Size?

    My SX3 is fairly well redundant now but I had a 4" vice fitted, did plenty of miles with it. Some people run a 6" but I reckon they look out of proportion, don't think there would be any harm though Couldn't tell you maximum weight, I do know that the dovetail on the Y axis (machine base) is...

    Emcoturn 120P

    Thanks Mike, It has been a long road. Now the paneling has to be stripped down and all joints sealed with silicone to avoid coolant leaking everywhere. I am happy with the outcome. The total investment in this machine is around $6500 AUS which is around what a reasonable condition used...

    Emcoturn 120P

    Hi Greg, The turret does appear a bit faster than it was originally. I am running the default motor parameters that Andrew Barrow supplied with his ETC V2 board. Wow! 360deg in a second, that is really fast. Will you be using the Barrow Dynamics board? or your own setup

I preformed a test a few weeks back and clamped a part in the chuck, dis connected the air supply and turned the machine all...

    How do I model a supercharger rotor?

    I did this some time ago on BobCad. Was quite a lengthy task. I did make the rotors on a 4 axis machine, they came out well but have since melted them down for another project. There were 7hrs machining Time in each rotor from 75mm dia billet 7075. Next time I will be casting them allowing for...

    Bazmak-HELP blown up the lathe

    Sounds like the motor driver board has crapped itself, This is common. Probably best to get it diagnosed properly though. Hare and Forbes can help. They will most likely try and sell you a whole new machine. They sell Sieg machines re-labeled as Hafco Little Machine Shop in the USA mate, They...
