    A 220v question

    Hi Guys, A standard microwave turntable motor will do this because there is nothing to control the direction. Put a small flap under or on the turntable edge so that the flap only allows it to turn in the direction you want. A bit of cardboard and blue tack will work to demonstrate the principle.

    Hi Guys, Thanks for your comments. You might have noticed from my pictures, that my tool post & tool holder are Norman patent ones, both front and rear. The tool block height is adjusted by an M6 screw bearing against the top slide. I can use any tool size that I can fit into the 13 mm slot...

    Hi Guys, Right, in order to prevent any misunderstanding of how my lathe tool height gauge works, here are some pictures of it in use on my lathe. Please note that the drawing is intended for use with the Myford centre height and the post should be adjusted in length to suit any other lathe...

    Hi Al, Guys, I'll take a couple of pictures of it in use. It works very well, much better than the scratched line on a bit of alloy block that I have used for a number of years. PS. I've never seen the "Saved" pop up on this forum, ever !

    Hi Norman, I do wonder nowadays ! Kids that don't know how to use a knife and fork to eat, only knowing fast food, so they have no idea of how to cook, but they can open a tin or a ready meal. Sitting around scratching their backside, or on their mobile phones with their head down walking...

    Hi Guys, Did anybody bother to look at the picture and drawing ?

    Hi Barry, The front lathe tool is set by bringing it up to the underside of the cap, the rear lathe parting off tool is set by lowering down onto the post. That is why the cap has part of it sawn away. The top surface of the post is the centre height, all the cap does is provides a reference stop.

    Fitting an 110v power feed to a Chester 626 milling machine

    John Lukes, If you know the power rating of the power feed you are interested in, you can buy a transformer of that rating quite cheaply. Otherwise why not just make your own ! There are lots of designs kicking about on the web.

    Fitting an 110v power feed to a Chester 626 milling machine

    In the UK it is live, neutral, protective earth. 240 Volts between live and neutral. Neutral and earth are normally tied at the substation and at the point of entry to the property.

    Modify an O-ring ???

    Hi Pat, I would go with the "O" ring cord ! At least that way you will get exactly the right diameter and length without having to worry about the shape.

    Fitting an 110v power feed to a Chester 626 milling machine

    Hi John, Put it down to old age and mistaken ID. I thought that you were the John Jukes I used to know from a few years ago. Sorry about that.

    Fitting an 110v power feed to a Chester 626 milling machine

    Hi John, You should get a 230 volt unit if possible, otherwise its going to be a 230 to 110 volt transformer. You will need access to the star point and any phase to get the supply voltage of 230. As an aside, I thought that you had moved to the USA !
