Are you using stones to deburr the gears?
I use a stone on the little bruises. And a semi blunt file for the main de burr
Four days of work restoring this 350mm diameter four jaw chuck. Chemical cleaned. All surfaces have been lightly stoned and a full de burr .the jaws have had a de burr. The jaws have been re seated to the matching ways...this one will be for sale in the for sale section shortly.
Done to your usual very high standard
Not big enough for you?
Satisfy my curiosity please, what are the four other slots between the jaws for?
Look slotted, but only go half way to the centre.
T slots for work holders? Clamps?
Next job on my large list of stuff to do. Scraping on my camel back straight edge
Today I am moving the Harrison bed round the back....
Messing about with machines when there’s grass to be cut, tut tut...
Lol. Fk the grass...more important things to deal with
Nothing wrong with that grass ^
Mine's long enough to make a Rasta weep!
there ! Cut the grass
While I was moving the Harrison. I decided to start move the pratt and whitney.
I saw the Pratt & Whitney on ebay and sent the seller a message about delivery but couldn't arrange anything. I was surprised at the original equipment that was with it. The lathe didn't look as if it had much use, A real class machine, I'm pleased it went to someone who will appreciate it's quality.
It's in good condition given its age. There is wear on the bed but have seen a lot worse. She is a big lump and look forward to restorations.
You get huge respect from me. And not purely owing to your obvious technical knowledge and skill. A large part of it is due to the fact that you horse those leviathan machines about in what is clearly a bog standard residential setting.
I still have nightmares about getting my Harrison Mill over my gravel drive and into my shop.
