  1. Re: Have Tree 310 w/ 3 phase power. Best solution to hook to my shops Single Phase 24

    Thanks, that's good to know. I think I'll follow that route.

  2. Re: Have Tree 310 w/ 3 phase power. Best solution to hook to my shops Single Phase 24

    LOL No problem. I'm 65, and my senior moments are turning into hours... thanks for all your help.

  3. Re: Have Tree 310 w/ 3 phase power. Best solution to hook to my shops Single Phase 24

    Ok... I thought a good carbide bit might do it. I'm a little confused, though... all of the toolhoolders I checked had a gap between the spindle nose and the toolholder flange, what I understand you...
  4. Re: Have Tree 310 w/ 3 phase power. Best solution to hook to my shops Single Phase 24

    Jim

    How did you narrow up the flange? There's instructions available from Erickson on how to narrow the flange, and the dimensions, etc. but they say to use a cylindrical grinder--for accuracy I...

    I have the Dynapath book, plus some drawings, but I haven't gone through them, yet. I'll do some looking and hopefully find more information. I'd like to use a VFD as my Trak lathe uses a 10hp...
  6. Re: Have Tree 310 w/ 3 phase power. Best solution to hook to my shops Single Phase 24

    Thanks, Jim. I have some various NMTB tooling for another mill and I tried to insert it in the spindle on the Tree 310. Even when I took the nut off, the outside diameter of the flange was too big...
  7. Re: Have Tree 310 w/ 3 phase power. Best solution to hook to my shops Single Phase 24

    Here's some pictures of the mill. That company that last used it was cutting plastic on it and it's covered with plastic "dust". It also has some rust on it.. hopefully not too serious.

    I think...
  8. Re: Have Tree 310 w/ 3 phase power. Best solution to hook to my shops Single Phase 24

    Thanks, Al. That's good information. I converted my previous mill with a stepped pulley to run on a 2 hp treadmill motor. It worked pretty good and gave me infinitely variable speed.

    I...

    It doesn't have a VFD at present. I bought it from a guy that wanted it to help build custom off-road vehicles, but he never hooked it up, and finally lost interest.

  10. Re: Have Tree 310 w/ 3 phase power. Best solution to hook to my shops Single Phase 24

    Thanks, Jim. I was hoping to be able to run the spindle from a VFD and not have to get a Rotary Phase Converter. I'll have to research more and see how to do that.

  11. Have Tree 310 w/ 3 phase power. Best solution to hook to my shops Single Phase 240 V

    I just bought a Tree 310 CNC Mill with Dynapath Control (20 series I think). It uses 3 Ph 230 V 30 FLA power. My shop is wired for 240 V 200 amp Single phase power.

    What is the best way to...

    I know this post is over 2 years old, but recently bought a YCM30 mill and I don't have any operator's manuals for it. I'm not sure what type of controller it has, only that it's...
  13. Looking for manuals for Supermax YCM-30

    I'm looking for an operator's and parts manual for a Supermax YCM-30 vertical milling machine. I've searched all over the web and can't find one...I did find one for the YCM-40... but not sure how...
  14. Re: Looking for CNC Lathe With Manual Capabilities

    Okay, that makes sense.
  15. Re: Looking for CNC Lathe With Manual Capabilities

    Thanks, Jim...I'll keep my eye out for one.

    So, what did you do to eliminate backlash on the Z axis?

  16. Re: Looking for CNC Lathe With Manual Capabilities

    I would say it hasn't been used... and a good price. But, unfortunately, I don't see any manual controls on it...

    Thanks for the information, Jim. Chevalier makes nice machines, and I didn't realize they made a combination lathe like that. But, it's too big for my work area and over my budget.

    Hi All. I've been a member for a couple years, but have mainly lurked here, trying to soak up as much as I can.

    I presently have a South Bend Heavy 10 lathe--nice machine, built in 1943...and...
