|about wiring up my version of this lathe specfically but|
You mean this one? 😛
That is gorgeous! I wanna throw the ball for my dog down that hall.
One big thing holding me back (or at least intimidating the hell out of me) is the already variable speed Oliver Lathe; being intended for institutional use it has 4 built in speeds, but the slowest is still 800 RPM. I found an Older Thread about wiring up my version of this lathe specfically but It hasn t been updated with how successful the attempt ever was. Several times its certainly mentioned that the variable speed of the lathe makes it a bit picky about being hooked up to a VFD, plus it s a madhouse of confusion in that thing:
Jake, I don’t understand why you would want to change anything about the existing variable speed of it. Couldn’t you set it to the speed you want, or do you want slower than 800? Sorry for the question, I’m totally ignorant about lathe work.
Nice Terry! 8’ or 6’ bed?
