Hi, I wonder if I could be trained to use the lathe.I need to remove a thin layer of a rod (8.8mm ->8.3 mm) so that it could fit a linear ball bearing. The material of the rod is steel. I also would like to learn how to drill holes in the center of the rod.
Thank you in advance for helpingEmerson
Hi,Thank yo Emerson, I would love to join in as well.Thanks,RK
Hello, @Emerson @Rebel_without_ClauseUnfortunately I am unable to train anyone on the lathe for the foreseeable future.
Wondering where the four jaw chuck for the lathe is, currently only a three jaw is installed
Should be on the lathe base in the plastic yellow bag.
Looking for lathe training as well!
Thank you Stefan, I am looking for the manual lathe training as well.Thanks,RK
I'd definitely be up for this too.
@Emerson @Stefan @Rebel_without_Clause @hughl87 I can run a training session on Sunday (July 9th) from 9am-2pm (it might finish up an hour or so earlier, depending on how things go - but leave the full 5 hours open as it is often necessary). Please let me know if you can attend.
Hi Richard, thank you so much for your time. Yes, I would like to attend. See you on Sunday.
Count me in! Thank you very much Richard!
Thank you Richard!I would love to attend on Sunday (July 9th).Thanks,RK
Yeah that works for me. Thanks
Hi Richard, just checking we're still going ahead tomorrow?Hugh
Yep! See you all then. Just a heads up that you'll have to remove any jewelry for the training (and whenever using the lathe),
@Emerson @Stefan @Rebel_without_Clause @hughl87 - I'm running a bit behind sorry; I'll be about 20 mins late! See you all shortly.
Great workshop!Thank you Richard!
Thank you Richard! Excellent training!
Thanks @rsim, very helpful class.
It looks like someone has used the exact same machine for metal spinning just with a different cross slide setup
Someones also tried it on a basic wood lathe
