Setup New Lathe

2011-12-4Even after you have leveled the lathe you should do a test cut and you may need to re-adjust it until the lathe is cutting straight and square Level is a somewhat idealistic concept What you want is to have the ways aligned with the axis of the spindle and straight That is the goal Good Luck!-Blue Chips-Webb

What is backlash? Detail of CNC machine tool

2015-8-7What exactly is machine backlash? Ballscrew backlash ballscrew slop bearing backlash and more Backlash is any non-movement that occurs during axis reversals Say for instance the X axis is commanded to move 1 inch in the positive direction Immediately after this X movement the X axis is commanded to move 1 inch in the negative direction

Mechanical Calculations/Engineering Design Lathe

2017-7-30Greetings I would like to pick your brains regarding some basic aspects of lathe spindle designs Namely those of the bench-top variety with a servo-controlled spindle that can operate as a fourth-axis My slant-bed design is to be a modest size with a 5C spindle about 8 in length through the headstock and I am seeking confirmation or advice on my approach to this most crucial portion of


2020-1-3b) A used lathe will never be better than the quality of the headstock bearings (as well as the many other areas of wear that might have happened in its lifetime) c) Headstock bearings on a 50 year old machine even if they have been looked after will be worn out of tolerance then - Any 50 year old Boxford lathe is only fit for scrap or

Setting spindle bearing preload

2013-6-17Setting spindle bearing preload I made a spindle a while ago for a live MT3 to lathe spindle nose adapter so I can hold chucks and collet holders in the tailstock I read all I could find on bearing preload but didn't find a definitive answer for bearing spacer widths Practical Machinist is the most visited site for metalworking

Vertical Mill Lathe Project Log CNC lathe scratch

2013-1-5Here's a concept sketch for the headstock/spindle design: I would like to place the roller bearings closer together to minimize the loss of preload due to thermal expansion of the spindle however I have been unable to find a ball bearing supplier online that has standard ball bearings with a 2 125 ID and 3 5 OD to match the roller bearings

Mini Lathe Tapered roller bearing

2018-12-7I don't own a 7X lathe so my opinion is worth zero BUT if this were my lathe I would go find a decent set of bearings maybe ABEC 3 Nachi QIBR and QIBR make good tapered roller bearings Then I would set preload with the same method Emco uses on their precision lathes to preload it Emco sets preload with no gears attached - just a bare spindle

Bought a metal lathe finally

2020-3-15I am somehow involved in a friend's old lathe rebuild project that has spent way more money in parts than the lathe will be worth But is ok if you enjoy the process We are currently lapping the spindle 0 0001 so we can get a good bearing temperature vs preload measurement

Stifness Measurements as a Check of Machine

1982-1-1This figure shows also intermediate stages of rotation of the nut which determines the preload of the bearing The maximum amount of preload was determined by the best stifness (least inclination of the curve) found on similar lathes which gave satisfactory results in practice c 1 b F 1- 333 Fig 5 Example of a small lathe with insufficient

High speed spindle bearings

Spindle bearings are a VERY light press fit finger preassure only too tight of a fit will result in deformation of the presicion bearing and there goes your accuracy I would think it is best to grind those surfaces so you have a smooth finish with little resistance to mounting the bearings
