Post: RE: Speed Control

Roly The original poster asked about a speed control.  IMO you don't need to look any further than many of the various lathes that use VFD's to vary speed of a 3 phase motor off 110 or 220 volt lines....

Post: RE: Speed Control

Post: RE: Speed Control

Post: RE: Spiral head cutterhead for shaper?

Have I done it - yes, do I have the same equipment - yes.  You need the 2" cutterhead, a 4" bearing collar, a double-T-bushing and 2 t-bushings. I typically run it on the 3/4" spindle but I could use ...

If I had to guess based on a picture only, I'd guess it was made in the 1880 - 1920 time frame.  Take a look at the nails, screws, what the back is made out of and the wheels (which appear to have bee...

Beautiful work.  Now a question, not a negative: I though the internal volume of a cremation urn should be less than the size of a coffee can for a large frame man.  Was this one designed for visual e...

Post: RE: high speed shaper cutters available?

If you're set on steel cutters, maybe check places like Ebay for used ones.  I have several older 1/2" Delta steel cutters from when I had my old Craftsman shaper (it only had 1/2" spindle).  I also b...

Unless it's rusted, you can slip a flat screwdriver between the nut and the edge of the hole and keep it from turning that way.
