    RAPIDTURN VIDEOS

    Hi Guys.

    Rapidturn has even made it to the far flung shores of New Zealand !

    I thought a thread of videos and photos and Rapidturn related information would be useful.

    I start the ball rolling with an unpacking and inspection video - more to follow.

    Please post any videos you can to this thread.

    Cheers Keen

    This will be nice! I see so little real life use of this tool.
    Thanks keen! I know it takes time and effort to make the videos.

    I don't recall if I posted this or not:

    Threading is 20 tpi at 600 rpm. The actual threading starts at about 2:00 in the video.

    Looks good.

    I recommend you put a small chamfer on the end of your part before you start threading.

    Yes. I would always do so on a manual lathe but I was anxious to play with my new toy!

    Sweet. Will the RT work as a continual 4th axis? Looked like it can index.

    The RT motor is powered by the spindle VFD. I suppose that you could add another VFD without program control but that is certainly not the intended mode of operation. Indexing is with manually selected detents.

    yeah, I was guessing that was a "cool look how easy this is" kind of part.

    Yikes! 7.5 Richter scale earthquake last night.

    I think my one can be renamed RapidShake.

    No major damage - just stuff fallen over or on the floor as far as my sleep deprived brain can see.
