  1. Re: Running a 3 inch mill in a DM-2 that shows should only be using a 2.5 inch - ?

    Yes, the 2.190 diameter is one of the important dimension, the tool holder I had to use for the face mill, was over the 2.5, and I had to machine that diameter to clear in the tool changer, the...
  2. Re: Running a 3 inch mill in a DM-2 that shows should only be using a 2.5 inch - ?

    Is the Tool holder the same size as the one you will be using? a 3" face mill won't fit in their standard umbrella type tool changer without machining the tool holder, itself to give it clearance,...
  3. Re: converting an old beat up grinder into a horizontal mill

    I don't believe that is being cheap, using what you have, is good, material is expensive, I have been doing the same, for some time. it's better to turn the material you have, into something than it...

  5. Re: converting an old beat up grinder into a horizontal mill

    This is normal when you build something like this, time is something you should not think about. one off parts, take longer as if you mess up you have to start all over again.

    As you can see in...

    This should give you what you need, just select the type of timing pulley profile, metric/ inch, number of teeth and ratio, or a desired center distance.

    Re: Spindle upgrade

    If you live in NA then your supply voltage is 240v, 8.7Hp is a tall order for a single-phase supply, but right at the extreme max.so you would have problems unless you have a high Amp's supply...
  8. Re: converting an old beat up grinder into a horizontal mill

    Looking Good, similar to my horizontal build.
  9. Re: Best way to waste a section of an end mill?

    You posted this not me, I didn`t invent anything new, I jumped into a market that has many voids, I needed something and I wasn`t going to pay the other guy's price when I could make it myself here...
  10. Re: Best way to waste a section of an end mill?

    I only reply to your Posts, as I said you don't have to show what you copied.

    Woo Hoo! so you copied someone's design, no wonder you don't want to show anything. or even your machine shop. (chair)

    This is defiantly Not done this way by Professionals :)

  12. Re: Having problems with my new Scroll air Compressor

    Sounds like you need to use automatic drains, so it can drain when it has too much condensate in it. do you have drops in the air lines, with drains at the bottom, this will help a lot as well, as...
  13. Re: Having problems with my new Scroll air Compressor

    All compressors you can have moisture problems, that is why they have air dryers, which you need for CNC machines.

    When you have/ use a Phase Perfect you don't really have a wild leg, they are a...
  14. Re: Best way to waste a section of an end mill?

    What you posted was of no help, to anyone, it was how to do a hack job on an End Mill.

    My Posts are never about me, not sure where you could get that from.: confused:

    I have never seen any...
  15. Re: Best way to waste a section of an end mill?

    One of these machines lets you make any form of single lip engraving / milling cutters you need. (D-Bits) sharpen Reamers ends, some have attachments that you can sharpen Endmills Etc. as well
    ...
  16. Re: Best way to waste a section of an end mill?

    It would depend how rigid your machine is, and how good the spindle is, I have long End Mills that can do more than 100mm deep in a pass, so 55mm is not much for a rigid Machine / Spindle
  17. Re: Best way to waste a section of an end mill?

    Honestly, I thought you were smarter than this, the tool from the crib is not set in any way, how could it be, :rolleyes: the only thing with the tool being selected, it is balanced and ready to be...
  18. Re: Best way to waste a section of an end mill?

    Using a Weldon type shank tool is in balance, unless you have changed the clamping screw in the tool holder it came with. :) in the good shops all the tools are loaded balanced and stored in a tool...
  19. Re: Having problems with my new Scroll air Compressor

    The transformer will lower the voltage, which should help, but may not solve the problem.
  20. Re: Having problems with my new Scroll air Compressor

    Such a small motor like this should not be turned on / off with a contactor, they should be using a solid-state relay, so this is where the problem is, not with your power supply.
  21. Re: Best way to waste a section of an end mill?

    Yes, some do it like that, but you need the grinding wheel to be on center.
  22. Re: Best way to waste a section of an end mill?

    No that's the way a hack would do it, doing it like this in any setting, can damage a high-speed spindle, as there is no way you can grind a relief round and true to the shank and cutter, by hand on...
  23. Re: Having problems with my new Scroll air Compressor

    Could be the inrush when the contactor closes it's too much for the Fan motor, what is the amp rating voltage of the fan.
  24. Re: Best way to waste a section of an end mill?

    Yes, that is how a hack would do it.
  25. Re: Retrofit Jianken Jgl-100/3.2R24 800Hz & Fuling DZB312B005.5L2DK to old Isel ADVIC

    He obvious did not know what how to get the pot working, the Pot will work if you have the correct Parameters set, and in the right mode.

  26. Re: Pumotix Beats Mach3 In Real Time 120000 IPM Achieved At 50 SPU!

    120,000 IPM using 100Khz, you are smoking something. or is that meant to be 12,000 IPM

    That is total BS, if you have a computer that can run at 100Khz then Mach3 will run at 100Khz, most computers...
  27. Re: Best way to waste a section of an end mill?

    If you only have the lathe then that's what you would have to use, normally it is done on a tool and cutter grinder, which is very simple and quick to do, there are many types of grinding machines...
  28. Re: Retrofit Jianken Jgl-100/3.2R24 800Hz & Fuling DZB312B005.5L2DK to old Isel ADVIC

    It should all be oil free, clean dry air is all that is required, it is not an air tool which requires some lube / oil,
  29. Re: Need help ....Fuling Vfd, steel enclosure and small steps

    If the name plate amps are 8.8A then it should be around 3A per phase
  30. Re: Having problems with my new Scroll air Compressor

    It should be able to handle that as the Voltage in NA can easily be 245v, see if there is an adjustment on the contactor, or what is the contactor spec's, and I will see what I can find.
