Information: Colchester lathe vibration

Mon 11th Dec '17

Advert ID: 31608

General
Details:
A friend has a Colchester lathe, fitted with a three phase Delta connected motor powered via an inverter. In former times when the lathe was powered via a converter and the motor connected in Star with a pilot motor running he says he didn't have any vibrations and every thing worked well. Some time later going modern, he bought an inverter for speed control, then he says vibrations started. My friend has dismantled the motor to check the bearings, all OK, he did the same to the head stock( he tells me these are very expensive) all OK. I recall some one HERE in the past suggesting altering the inverter control frequency upwards to reduce the noise of the motor. Your practical suggestions would be much appreciated.Ted

For Sale: 3 1/2" Gauge Rob Roy

Mon 11th Dec '17

Advert ID: 31599

Models
Details:
31/2" Gauge Caledonian Railway 0-6-0T to Martin Evans' "Rob Roy" design. Although built 30 years ago, it doesn't appear to have been steamed all that often. Pretty much complete, although the bottom of the smokebox requires sealing, and from what I can see requires a grate, and a pressure gauge. The steam regulator doesn't move, possibly because it has been stored for many years. There is no boiler certificate. Motion work turns over freely. Some of the pipework in the smoke box looks as if it has been soft soldered. I think the boiler will need to be removed, cleaned and closely inspected and tested. So, the locomotive is sold as a project.

Built by an experienced model engineer who built clocks as well as locomotives.

Can deliver or meet up within a 100 mile radius of London for a modest cost.

More pictures available. Please email me.

Wanted: Clarkson Medium Autolock for QC30 spindle

Fri 8th Dec '17

Advert ID: 31583

Tools
Details:
Hi,

I am after a Clarkson medium Autolock chuck for QC30 spindles for cutters 1" and 25mm shank sizes.

I have a small for up to 5/8" | 16mm collets. I now want a medium for 1" | 25mm cutter shanks I don't think they made one that takes 1.25" | 32mm cutters for the 30 taper spindles. If I'm wrong about that get in touch.

The QC30 looks like a regular 30 taper chuck apart from it has a flange for the quick change nut to act on. The nominal dimensions of the flange are flange diameter 46mm, and flange thickness 8.76mm.

Ideally good condition and with a center in good condition but its not a deal breaker.

Thanks,
Steve

Details:
I was recently at a scrap merchant's in the Midlands buying some machines when I noticed that in his 'office' he had some bits of steam engines. Two part built copper boilers about 5" diameter by 20" long including firebox plus a less complete smaller one. He also had a number of cast flanged wheels and buffers. Models are of no interest to me, but if anyone wants his contact details please contact me first. Please don't ask what the bits belong to, I have no idea. He also showed me a wooden 71/4" model of what he said was a black 5, and I think the parts may have come from the same source, but can't be sure.

For Sale: Lorch LLK lathe and accessories

Tue 5th Dec '17

Advert ID: 31567

Tools
See all ads from Michael Howe
Details:
This is a Lorch LLK lathe(made in 1969) from a retired clock repairers workshop, the LLK has a 3 phase motor mounted to the left and behind the headstock so that its V-pulley lines up with a countershaft incorporated inside the lower part of the headstock casting. The final drive to the lathe spindle is by a flat belt running over 3-step pulleys, the countershaft assembly running in bearings held on a circular, eccentric plate that allows the belt tension to be slackened for changes of speed and adjustment, although with the inverter being adjustable its not really necessary to change the belts.
The single to 3 phase inverter is wired to a 4 pole socket on the bench so that either the lathe or the milling attachment can be selected at any one time.
The lathe motor is 3 phase 600W, driven from a 240v Hitachi inverter with a stop/start and forward/reverse control box, this is mounted below the headstock.

The milling attachment has a pluggable 3 phase motor and the assembly is made up from another LL cross slide assy. with the top slide mounted vertically on an angle bracket it has lever feed for the x axis for wheel cutting, the spindle arbor takes a 1MT cutter adapter, the one fitted takes the 7mm bore Thornton cutters, some cutters will be offered to the new owner.

There is also a 60:1 dividing head on the back end of the lathe spindle which can be disengaged when not used, there is 4 different plates that can be fitted which will cover almost all conventional tooth counts. Also for wheel cutting there is a box of aluminium wheel mounts that attach to a 10mm flanged collet to be held in the main spindle.

This equipment is for collection only and if the bench itself is required, this can also be included in the sale, if it is removable from the basement workshop.
The bench itself is 32.5” wide x 19” deep x 32” high and the shelf unit will detach.

Included will be:-
3 phase 600W motor and Hitachi 240V inverter with control box.
Dividing head and 4 plates
Milling attachment for wheel cutting.
80mm 3J chuck with o/s jaws and key.
88mm 4 jaw independent chuck with reversible jaws and key.
80mm 4 jaw self centering chuck with o/s jaws and key.

One very useful cam shaping machine, would be very useful to someone with one or more Swiss autos, screw machines, automatic lathes, etc. That's why I bought it but it will no longer be required.

There's a lot of tooling included with this machine! I'm sure it would be very expensive and difficult to get. See the photos.

It's a three phase machine as you'd expect of something industrial.

Obviously used and years old. A well built machine, looks to be generally in good order to me. Buyer is welcome to inspect and I will answer questions as best I can. See photos for more information on condition.

The machine is already on a pallet making collection easier.
