    No mate I’ve been flat out for the past two months, no weekends just one day off, hardly been on the forum at all save for updating my Denbigh drill project.

    Cheers! I have got the motor out and my other brother in law is going to weld it as he's has stick and the skill :)
    I will post a picture after it's done.

    Well after the fiasco of trying to get the motor mount welded, I fixed it with a couple of bolted on straps. The motor is now installed and the lathe is in place.
    I have had to order some imperial Allen keys as I don't have any!

    Wouldn't weld?



    Shouldn't take long to get the rest back on now and get turning.
    Was only wondering if it was built yesterday

    It was more of a case of didn't want the hassle. I tried a local engineering company too but they wouldn't touch it either.
    Still I took a more pragmatic approach and got it done.
    Hopefully by Sunday it will be running :)
    Cheers :thumbup:

    Excellent. Did the saddle bolts go in ok. Remember them being a nightmare

    It all went together really well. I was impressed with the head stock fixings, I just need to work out how to run the VFD, as I don't think 770 rpm is going to work for everything!

    Press up and down to increase/decrease

    Can wire in your own controls easily enough. Manual was on there website.

    Didn't come apart that easy first time.

    Cheers, that will be fantastic. What oil did you use in the head? I oiled the gears with 3 in 1 as I don't have anything else at the moment!!

    These oil the dogbox and screw bearing surfaces
