    You might find purchasing a one year subscription with access to now several years of digitalized back issues your best bargain. You will also, I believe, get access to the now-discontinued Digital Machinist. At least I do with my subscriptions to two of their other magazines.

    LOL, Bozo is the clown who shows up in the shop and ham handily screws things up. I agree with the run on paragraphs. The mill is a Clausing 8511, shipped with a factory installed Bridgeport M Head and, best I can tell, the 1/2 motor. The biggest collet is 1/2" so a bigger motor really isn't...

    Thanks Dave. I do OK with electricity, minor programming, but other than that it's usually an exercise resulting in losing the magic smoke. I had a couple of motors before I moved from free treadmills, but the controllers, at least then, were the problem. The treadmill boards were fully...

    What do you use for a controller?

    Belfair is actually on the Olympic Peninsula straight up Rt. 3 from me, ~ :30 minutes. --- "Yes but . . . " I started to type up the whole issue. Not the same, just another tale of cascading problems. I got the mill with a foot pad motor half installed on a shop made bracket to hold the motor...

    Ah, sorry. Same problem, need my mill to fix my mill. It may be an unfortunate case of poor hardening/tempering. You might want to explore taking the shaft to a motor shop, may be common enough they have a routine fix. I have an original M-head 1/2 hp motor with an old 3/4" shaft. Motor is at...

    Cross side extension build.

    Dave, interesting idea and food for thought. Sorry, but rather then venture guesses, I'll ask what is the full intent? ----------------------------- After I wrote the above, I did a reverse image search. The original poster listed the the below as the intent. Is it correct to assume you have the...

    Cutting oils What do you use?

    A recommendation I have followed for all steel on my lathe is cheap, parifin in the US, candles. No odor, re-solidifies so very easy to clean up. Also handy for dripping wax on magnets to clean off swarf. Ron

    Question about putting VFD on a step pulley mill.

    FWIW. I ran a BP M-head as others mentioned on the ~ middle pulley set, no problems. As screening criteria I suggest you consider this: The manual is available to be read before purchasing. The really cheap units often don't and my experience is unhappy surprises. Can you figure out how to make...

    Wanted Sheldon 11" Lathe metric change gears parts

    Hi krypto. I have a 10" Logan and ~99% of the 10 & 11" parts are interchangeable. I have a spreadsheet I've made listing the most common metric threads and the required gears. It's been a work in progress, but the information is there, just not in a professional layout. I also have the table...

    Prusa XL 3D Printer

    I won't lie or exaggerate. It was painful. Especially the Prusa. Like you, the friend who pointed me to it was aghast at what I was going through. I do think it's settled out now. And as much as I didn't care for the lessons, I now have a much better understanding of how the components are "...

    Prusa XL 3D Printer

    IMHO and experience, you have to spend a fair amount of coin to buy a true turn-key printer. I didn't want another project, but my significant other really wanted a printer . . . The following experiences are an over view of my life from Christmas day 2022 to the 2nd week of March 2023...
