Re: Bandsaw Blades

If I do that then the blades will uncoil in the opposite direction....I'm doomed!

Re: Woodinville Shops

Glenn, Keep a good eye on everything once you get the trolley on the rail and start using it. Being that the I beam is tapered as are the wheels, the weight will try to force the wheels away from the center of the beam. You may have to stiffen up the side plates. I also would advise a thick walled s...

Re: Packing gear cases with grease

My understanding is once the gear box heats up, the grease warms up and flows/ works it's way back into the gears. Overfilling the box with grease will actually cause the box to get to hot. I've been told that spindle bearings on Bridgeports, lathes, CNC machines, etc should not be more than 1/3 pac...

Re: Looking for CNC lathe recommendations

I would stay away from any "bargain" you may find coming out of China....all is well until something doesn't work , breaks, wears out....good luck getting support or parts. I'm not very familiar with the smaller end of hobby size lathes, so I don,t really know what is on the market. What I do know i...

Re: Uneven cut

How heavy a cut were you making? What kind of cutter were you using? If you try the same setup and same end mill with a piece of aluminum do you get the same result?

Try taking a light finish pass, couple of thousands , climb milling, and try a higher helix mill .

Re: Tramming range

Tram it to the table, not the vise. If you get another vise, or use 123 blocks, parallel bars or some other fixture, at least you know the machine is trammed correctly. Depending on the manufacturer, it is also quite possible the top of the vise isn,t parallel with the table.

Re: Looking for CNC lathe recommendations

Chris, Good luck on your search. What you are looking for , 6" swing x 12-15" length falls into the category of a small turning center......not benchtop size. They are available in your price range, but it will be an older machine. You may also find someone who has converted a flatbed lathe to CNC ,...
