    @zx9 that’s I good idea wouldn’t have thought about doing it like that !

    Having a ponder about mounting the light I might do it different. it’s going to be teathered to the lathe via kopex but thinking of making the position flexible by making a hanging bracket with thumb screws to fix on the splash back top. This way I can have it anywhere along the back depending on the job

    Really nice, the lamp looks great. Have you had your IBC container of CT90 yet? I haven't.

    Those lamps are lovely. I have the two arm version for my Graduate plus the transformer box. I chose to repaint in the original colours, black and hammered silver.

    Back home this weekend so finished off mounting the lamp.

    Fabricated a mounting plate to fit the rear of the Headstock, 5mm plate was all I had so it's turned out pretty sturdy. No Beige left so its the matching Red.

    I Turned a fitting to mount a fuse holder in one of the existing 18mm threaded holes on the lamp base. Nice being able to make things for problems you have:laughing:

    Mounted on the back ready to wire up, using a single gang metal clad back box sprayed in the same colour as the motor as a junction box.

    Fuse holder fitted

    sorted routing for the various conduits, looks tight but gearing and belt have lots of clearance

    All wired up, there is also a switched live to here for the future coolant system to be fed from and the DRO can be patched into here too.

    Managed to find a retro looking toggle switch that fitted

    all finished

    Interesting - I went the other way with mine and embraced the modern lines of the lamp and added something which I think can be made to glow!

    @Dieselkid 63 that defo matches your more modern electrical box, and i would absolutely look at making it glow :laughing: mine came with the small, older looking box and had a toggle switch so i just went a replacement for that.

    It has three terminals on the back, not sure how you wire it, perhaps I'll do a thread, useless at electrics but eager to play with them!

    You'll probably have the wiring schematic on the switch, usually live in switched live out and earth. Check what voltage it is for.

    Same as mine then. Though mine has two as I used the original single phase pulleys. Thanks for confirming!

    Back from Christmas and new year Hols and decided to crack into the DRO kit. Just spent some time sizing things up, looking at it there are quite a few mounting options so will have a ponder and hopefully grab time to start drilling some holes in the lathe this weekend...


    Opted for a Newall system in the end, first impressions pretty good - nice solid feel to everything.

    Wow - someone's been splashing out. Not happy with the socks then? :D :D

    I hope those adjustables are kept in the 'tools you shouldn't really be using on a precision machine' drawer ;)
