    Thanks Michel, I have limited space as well. I have had to do a lot of re-arranging to make some room for it (putting other machines on wheels as well). I think I will get a lot of use from it now though.

    Hi Martin, I've had that stand for about 12 yrs (about 10 on the end of a work bench) with just a few boxes on it,- one of those things you keep because you might find a use for it one day 😁 -finally did !😊

    Hey JB!!!
    My respect, I've been wishing for something like this for a long time. But the space is limited in my little craft space. I can use a club member's machine for this. .
    πŸ‘πŸ‘ Good work, JB !!
    Greetings from Michel-Cl.

    Received the new motor pulley today from the South Island, and fitted it on the motor this afternoon. Everything worked perfectly so I checked the speed range with my digital tach. Normal running gives 1400 RPM, 960 RPM, 659 RPM. Using the back gear gives 254 RPM, 174 RPM, 119 RPM, - so quite a reasonable range.

    The company I bought the pulleys from gave excellent service, and even credited me one shipping fee when they noticed I had ordered 2 pulleys separately, then sent them as one package. Don't get that sort of honesty much these days !

    Only used the 1/2"pulley, as the 3" would have been too fast with the 2800 RPM, motor (rear shaft would have been running at 1680 RPM not 896 RPM as it is now). All ready to start making 'stuff'. If you were wondering, the red spot on the chuck, is the laser on the reflector strip for the digital tach.
    I have also 'repurposed' an old computer stand as a tool tray. Quite handy as it can swivel in a number of directions. Waiting for some new belts to arrive, as these have seen better days. Might make a flip up top cover for all the pulleys as well, just for safety.

    Hi Martin, looks a bit tidier with a paint job, was looking a bit grubby before that. Re the bike spanner, it's probably as old as the lathe, (one of my fathers old tools ) still have quite a few old British made tools (probably from the 30s - 50s) which were my grandfathers (a builder) and fathers. One of my favourites is and old 'Maori Chief' rip saw,( made by the Toronto Saw Company in Canada - probably 1920s) of my grandfathers, which has been sharpened so many times, it's only half as deep as original,- built a lot of houses !
    Pulleys should be here this week with any luck, have to come from Nelson -top left of the South island,- so couriers might be a bit slow,- has to come across our version of the English Channel -( the Cook Strait)-either plane direct, or truck from Nelson to Picton (onto ferry,) across to Wellington, to Auckland, not sure, sometimes takes weeks, other times overnight.

    I'm sure I won't get 'bored' with them Bill, or 'turned off'😁

    Hi JB,
    She is looking like a different machine now.
    I like the use of the bike spanner. LOL!!
    When are you expecting the drive pulley to arrive?

    You have been at the β€œcutting edge” on this one and I don’t want to β€œChuck” any more sad jokes at you.
    Enjoy πŸ€ͺ
