    Ford 300 Inline Six

    Yes, 7 was my first version. Tormach is very good to their legacy users like you and I. My machine is SN#225 and I think your # is lower than mine. I think if something went wrong trying to install it on a new OS, Tormach would take care of it somehow. Scott

    Ford 300 Inline Six

    Hi Terry They used to hand these out at events, I got this one at a "CNC Workshop" in Michigan in 2010. This is the only version my dongle will activate. I am pretty sure the dongle is version specific and not keyed or ID'd to my computer. I have installed it on each new computer over the...

    Ford 300 Inline Six

    Hi Terry It is the one I got with the original software back in the XP days. But the dongle only works with the original "Demo" disk I got from Tormach. When I built my new computer I downloaded a legacy version of SC7 and my dongle would not work. I had to find my original disk that came with...

I am still using version 7 and know all too well what you mean. I still think the best part of your builds is your documentation, photography and willingness...

    What do you think?

    Very nice ! It sounds like the sand packs up as soon as it stops moving. Maybe feed the screw directly from your running cement mixer. Set up some sort of tilting device for the mixer so it will pour at the rate the screw can handle. This way the sand is always moving. Control the tilt and screw...

    Metric Threads on Generic 12x 36 lathe

    Hi Colin Sorry ,you do seem to understand :) I hope I did not come off as condescending :( Do you know the pitch of the leadscrew ? and the tooth count of all the gears ? We can figure this out, it is just a matter of ratios. My leadscrew is 8tpi. And the you can see my placards showing the...

    Metric Threads on Generic 12x 36 lathe

    Hi Colin It sounds like you did not change the idler gear from 40 to a 32 tooth. On my 12x36 "Import" lathe to cut that range of threads requires a change of one of the 40 tooth gears to 36 tooth. See pic of my thread/gear chart. Here you can see that the lower 40 tooth gets changed to a 32...

    Sheraton 9A Headstock Lapping

    Norman You should check your math or look at your calipers a little closer. 45.73mm is 1.8003". Not a stock size. Would still need to machine to size. Scott
