    #17 Pumper help needed

    Elmer's #17 Pumper engine Before I put this project on the shelf I figure I will swallow my pride and ask for help!! I am unable to get it to run on both cylinders.

    Lathe bit choice help

    OK..finally got it turned. Had to use a combination of LH, RH and pointed bits.. My major problem was chatter because my chuck is 6" and will not hold a piece of 3" stock, so having to use my larger 4 jaw with jaws turned around.

    Lathe bit choice help

    Yes, it is a typical flywheel with recessed sides having square shoulders on each side. I tried a 60º threading bit and it did not want to cut either. I guess I need to try different geometry settings for the tools.... It is for an Elmers #17 pumper.

    Lathe bit choice help

    Hello, I am needing to cut a recess on the inside of a piece of 3" steel for a flywheel. I will be going about 1/4" deep. I have tried a couple of boring bits and all it does is chatter. There will be a uncut hub in the center. What type of bit is best to accomplish this??? Julian

    CNC advice please

    Baron, I want to use it to drive the X table on my mill (24"). Yes you are right...I probably could use a DC motor and gears to do the same thing.. It's just that I plan to get into CNC at some point and this would get my feet wet.. Julian

    Question for ENCO 7x12 band saw owners

    Baron, Thanks for the quick reply,,, it is not the split pin in the U saddle, it is a hole about 5/16" in the ACME nut itself. If you look down in the hole you can see the ACME screw, JG
