For Sale: D Shackles and Steel Cables

Hi Everyone

Once more I find myself having to rationalise my hoarding.

The shackles and cables are all UNTESTED and no I won't get them tested for you before you buy. To the best of my knowledge they are in safe working condition and have not been overloaded/stretched. They are sold as seen. I personally would have no hesitation in using them - that said I wouldn't attempt to use them to the limit of their capacity! The cables are about 1.5m long - ie 3m total each.

These items can be seen or collected from less than a mile from J13 of the M11, just outside of Cambridge - easy to find! They can be seen during office hours although early evening may also be possible on certain days.

Strictly collection only - cash, no uncleared cheques or promises from Nigerian Princes of riches beyond avarice tomorrow please

Judging by the prices that some used shackles etc make on fleabay £35 doesn't seem unreasonable - if you think it does, let me know.

Rather bizarely - if you happen to have a couple of dozen clean flip top beer/lager bottles (must be beer or lager) such as the Grolsch bottle in the photo, I would be happy to take them in part payment - just started brewing beer again after 30 years abstinence!

Now I've got a turret mill I use that for bigger drilling so the Fobco is surplus to requirements.

Information: Myford VMC Quill Problem, and Machine Paint?

Fri 17th Feb '17

Advert ID: 28993

Tools
See all ads from Nigel Graham
Details:
Greetings All.

I've re-assembled my Myford VMC Milling-machine over a year and a house move since acquiring it - I managed to find those missing gibs for which I'd placed a Wanted ad! (They had hidden themselves in a box of lathe parts.)

However, the quill was pretty solidly jammed fully home, and though now moveable, is still very stiff; enough to overcome the return spring.

My prime suspect is adhesion by old oil or grease, before considering anything more serious. I ought add the poor machine was all in bits for well over a year before I was ready to rebuild it, but safely dry inside the house,and the turret lay on its back to avoid weight on quill and motor.

I removed, cleaned, oiled and re-fitted the clamp: no effect apart from ensuring the clamp operates correctly.

I squirted WD-40 and Plus -Gas in various places, then left the machine with quill fully down for a day or so, to try softening any 'gone-off' oil gum. It didn't.

Tried easing spring and handle-end covers open enough to squirt in WD-40, but could not do so. I've had previous with quill springs and dare not open these covers fully without advice on the proper (and safe!) technique. Does it need special tools?

Might VERY gentle heat, e.g. an incandescent-bulb inspection-lamp close under the quill for a few hours, work?

Or is something else, possibly mechanical,likely to be the cause?

I would be extremely grateful if someone can point me in the right direction, please! I have a 'lathes.co' copy of the manual, but quills and their springs demand full knowledge.


On paint... (for non-Myford machines) Would garage floor-paint work, on top of primer? That I bought for the workshop's concrete floor is a pleasing shade of grey (!) not far off Myford, so appropriate, but has anyone had any good or bad experience with using it on machine cabinets and castings?

Hi
If you have a pultra lathe overhead pulley setup surplus to requirements please let me know and a price. I have the dividing head and spindle and I'm just asking before coming up with my own solution. If anyone has the extra dividing plate (M316) that was available for the pultra dividing head... I may also be interested in one.

Thanks
Neil

For Sale: Transwave 3.7kW Phase Converter

Wed 15th Feb '17

Advert ID: 28967

Tools
Details:
Transwave converter 1ph 240V in, 3ph 415V out rated at 3.7kW with documentation.

I used to use this to run a Hardinge HLV-H lathe (without modifications) off a single phase supply. However, I eventually decided prior to resurfacing the driveway to have installed a proper 3x100A supply which means that the converter is really surplus to requirements.

It can be run for light loads from a 13A outlet, but at heavier usage really needs a 20A circuit.

I can also include an old 3ph motor without shaft to use as an idler motor in cases where it is also desirable to run fractional hp motors without the main drive motor (effectively a rotary converter). I found this essential to run the Hardinge dual-speed motor on the high speed setting.

Struggling with my recently purchased, very versatile, mill slowing down when making anything more than a light cut. The motor does not slow down and the triple drive belts do not appear to slip so my best guess is that the clutch is slipping, high and low speed !
Does anyone have experience/knowledge/advice / exploded drawings to offer on how to strip down and replace linings, thanks in advance.

For Sale: Stuart 5A Engine Casting Sets - 2-0ff

Tue 14th Feb '17

Advert ID: 28965

Models
See all ads from Nigel Graham
Details:
TWO sets of MOST of the castings for Stuart 5A engine, plus drawing set.

Acquired from a friend who had bored the cylinders but not machined any other parts before deciding it too small for his project. I found it too large for mine! I have not machined any of the castings.

There is only one flywheel casting between them and neither set has a baseplate as our own projects needed twin engines with non-Stuart bases and frames.

Some of the smaller items may be missing (one weigh-shaft bracket from the 2 handed pairs, definitely is)but these could be fabricated.

Due to weight, prefer buyer to collect but I am prepared to arrange at least part-journey hand-over delivery, or collection from me at a bona-fide address (a caving-club HQ) I visit frequently near Cheddar.

Cash or cleared cheque please.

NB: If you e-mail it may be better to do so outside of this web-site, judging by problems I've encountered with it including possible lost-in-aether!
