12:00 AM norias: ziper: looks fun
12:04 AM XXCoder: wow big lathe
12:04 AM `Wolf: nice apartment sized machine
12:04 AM XXCoder: definitely not machine for apartment dweller.
12:05 AM ziper: I could stop sleeping on the floor
12:05 AM ziper: i will have... a bed
12:10 AM XXCoder: more and more chineseium products is using linear rails
12:10 AM XXCoder: kinda good news
12:10 AM norias: why is that good news?
12:10 AM XXCoder: cheap linear rails
12:11 AM XXCoder: of course its still chineseium..
12:11 AM norias: fair point
12:13 AM `Wolf: be nice if they marketed the rails with things like “our slave labor force actually puts the correct number of balls in our bearings”
12:14 AM norias: ha!
12:14 AM XXCoder: indeed lol
12:14 AM norias: "We have the very best slaves!"
12:14 AM XXCoder: I bought some sbrs and quality was ehh
12:15 AM XXCoder: hardware wasnt bad, bearing was.
12:22 AM XXCoder: not bad https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qoP1aQJikSU
12:22 AM `Wolf: bearing are kinda the important part
12:23 AM XXCoder: indeed
12:24 AM `Wolf: I hate 3d printers, build size, potato (small)
12:25 AM XXCoder: yeah didnt plan to paste url here lol sorry
12:25 AM `Wolf: ol
12:25 AM `Wolf: lol
12:25 AM RyanS: yeah 3d printers are way overrated
12:26 AM `Wolf: https://i.imgur.com/fkqohZd.jpg too small
12:26 AM `Wolf: thinking about building a 300x300
12:26 AM XXCoder: someone made 3'x3'x10' printer
12:26 AM XXCoder: uses strings and achnors
12:27 AM `Wolf: I could size the i3 to giant
12:27 AM `Wolf: but really I don’t need it much bigger
12:28 AM `Wolf: that one you linked has a neat layout tho
12:30 AM RyanS: do you know how much you need to oversize holes in PLA? I've never had any success although I don't expect better than 0.1mm tolerance
12:31 AM `Wolf: I usually just put holes in place to either force thread screws in to or I drill them out
12:31 AM `Wolf: or print the same damn thing 10 times to get the holes right
12:32 AM ve7it: 96
12:32 AM ve7it: *85200
12:33 AM ve7it: nb]'
12:33 AM `Wolf: oddly my lathe gears came out sized correctly
12:34 AM `Wolf: which means I must have gotten the size wrong in the cad lol
12:34 AM ve7it: https://ca.groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/dist69freecycle/info;_ylc=X3oDMTJmZWltdGhpBF9TAzk3NDkwNDQyBGdycElkAzEzMDM2MTY4BGdycHNwSWQDMTc2MDA2NDIzNQRzZWMDdnRsBHNsawN2Z2hwBHN0aW1lAzE1MzA5NjU4NjE-/omr
12:34 AM ve7it: ./------
12:34 AM RyanS: im just making inserts for a toolrack fot MT3 so if its a bit small the tool will just sit higher
12:35 AM `Wolf: https://i.imgur.com/d6eqnNG.jpg
12:41 AM norias: oh good
12:41 AM norias: i'm still here
12:41 AM norias: so, yeah, machining
12:41 AM norias: so much fun
12:46 AM `Wolf: making chips here...
12:46 AM XXCoder: yummy heh
12:46 AM norias: oh, what flavor?
12:46 AM norias: BBQ?
12:47 AM XXCoder: probably steel
12:47 AM XXCoder: or more common, aluminium
12:47 AM `Wolf: aluminium
12:48 AM `Wolf: if I fuck up, carbide and vise chips
12:48 AM XXCoder: unwanted flavors yeah
01:19 AM IchGucksLive: morning from sunny germany
01:19 AM norias: morning
01:19 AM IchGucksLive: bullrun 2nd day in pamplona
01:20 AM IchGucksLive: only 6 people in holpital at a full downforce it raind like hell
01:22 AM IchGucksLive: morning norias new here ?
01:22 AM norias: sorta
01:23 AM IchGucksLive: what are you building or interested in
01:24 AM norias: hmm, good question
01:24 AM norias: i might build some sort of cnc just to test ideas
01:24 AM IchGucksLive: im the man how ownes this YT https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmwhCL92ZQRSVqFe3jGwJSQ/videos
01:24 AM norias: cool
01:25 AM IchGucksLive: norias, what is the expected budget
01:25 AM norias: not sure yet
01:25 AM norias: i'm still thinking it through
01:25 AM norias: i want to basically simulate a production system
01:25 AM norias: and the question is, with how much fidelity?
01:26 AM IchGucksLive: simulaton is more CAD related like Freecad
01:26 AM norias: yeah... not really
01:27 AM IchGucksLive: norias, simulating systems like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BbVUEcMGrdE
01:27 AM norias: no, not at all
01:28 AM norias: thats a machine simulation
01:28 AM norias: and apparently not even a full one
01:28 AM IchGucksLive: part simulation
01:28 AM norias: i need to study a manufacturing system
01:30 AM IchGucksLive: ok maybe things like this https://www.youtube.com/user/CGTechVERICUT/videos
01:30 AM norias: yeah, that's closer, but not quite
01:31 AM norias: afaik vericut doesn't handle deflection, etc
01:31 AM norias: well, maybe
01:31 AM IchGucksLive: then you are up with Freecad as it has all modules onboard
01:32 AM IchGucksLive: full FEM CAD and CAM
01:32 AM norias: yeah, that's cool, thanks
01:32 AM norias: i'm not going to sit here and argue about it
01:35 AM `Wolf: things get lost in translation I thinks
01:36 AM IchGucksLive: im off 2 Garden Bye
01:38 AM gloops: triple the estimated cash and time budget
01:38 AM gloops: dont even bother starting a cnc if youre over 50 - youll never live to see it working lol
01:39 AM norias: lol
01:39 AM norias: that's why i might just buy one working
01:40 AM gloops: well, i suppose it depends what machine, and how much spare you have, i started a year ago, ended up building twice
01:41 AM norias: i'm kinda in the place where i almost don't care what machine
01:41 AM gloops: spare time
01:41 AM norias: i guess i have to decide if that matters
01:41 AM norias: in the long run it probably does
01:41 AM norias: but i think i can start my work with pretty low fidelity
01:42 AM gloops: hmm, something moving in 3 dimensions probably
01:42 AM gloops: probably something that cuts
01:42 AM norias: you've got a point
01:43 AM norias: 2d would work
01:43 AM norias: actually
01:43 AM norias: not a bad place to start
01:43 AM norias: although i feel like production lathe stuff is...
01:43 AM norias: rather well solved
01:43 AM gloops: well, then you have to consider the long term costs, how long before you need 3d? not very long id guess
01:44 AM norias: and i just don't think there's as much lathe work
01:44 AM gloops: its all 5 axis these days
01:44 AM norias: not really
01:44 AM norias: there's tons and tons of 3 axis out there
01:46 AM gloops: what im really saying is, if you build a machine for 2, design it with the potential to be upgraded to 3
01:46 AM gloops: rather than having to build another machine
01:46 AM norias: yeah
01:47 AM gloops: it doesnt take that long to make a router or something with ally extrusions, probably a couple of weeks
01:48 AM norias: good point
01:50 AM gloops: the mistake most people make to start is building something too small, too weak, too cheap to be any use - as i did, no sooner is it finished than you need to start building again if you want to make anything
01:50 AM `Wolf: desk top slant bed with live tooling imo
01:52 AM `Wolf: have it making drip tips for the vape crowd, sell stupid little turned acrylic for $15 each
01:52 AM norias: hah
01:52 AM norias: turning acrylic is a pita
01:53 AM gloops: hey that brazilian who was in here was making those - he was selling loads
01:53 AM norias: right on
01:53 AM norias: anyway
01:53 AM norias: i gotta run
02:04 AM Deejay: moin
02:24 AM `Wolf: well this might be useful https://imgur.com/a/SMwJQH0
02:25 AM XXCoder: the bolt holes block? isnt you made this a while ago?
02:25 AM `Wolf: me nope
02:25 AM `Wolf: I just ordered 2 from nycnc
02:26 AM XXCoder: ahh ok
02:26 AM XXCoder: its bolted to round stock?
02:26 AM `Wolf: yup
02:26 AM `Wolf: well, the round stock bolts to it
02:27 AM `Wolf: every youtube diy mini pallet I have seen bolts from the pallet down
02:28 AM `Wolf: this one has more holes, reaming and tapping then I would ever want to do on a manual mill
02:28 AM XXCoder: indeed lol
02:28 AM XXCoder: you ever seen college project, super holey block?
02:28 AM XXCoder: lemme find it
02:28 AM XXCoder: not 123
02:29 AM `Wolf: and after looking at the cost of a 6”x9”x1” plate ($35) I said screw it and ordered the $89/ea
02:29 AM `Wolf: yeah, the machinist cube
02:30 AM XXCoder: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qZcLwStx6h4
02:30 AM `Wolf: damn the saunders pallet has 150 holes in it
02:32 AM `Wolf: oh that cube lol
02:32 AM XXCoder: yeah. insane number of holes
02:32 AM `Wolf: I was thinking https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ANm1SqGjYM
02:32 AM XXCoder: its basically nothing but holes lol
02:32 AM XXCoder: your keywords helped tho
02:35 AM `Wolf: lol and I link the one that is a fail
02:36 AM `Wolf: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GwkyUPw8ZAw done right
02:36 AM XXCoder: machine handles look like pistons lol
02:37 AM `Wolf: hah I wasn’t even looking
02:38 AM `Wolf: I need to make more handles for my lathe
02:38 AM `Wolf: like i need more projects lol
02:41 AM `Wolf: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qxfu9gNM_W8 your swiss cube done modern way :P
02:43 AM XXCoder: smaller but yeah
02:44 AM XXCoder: that guy need to use airblade for camera
02:44 AM `Wolf: lol
02:47 AM XXCoder: 22 bucks for one of those
03:13 AM Connor: Anyone have any idea how much torque needed for a power feed for a Z on a Bridgeport.. I can do 350in-lb, 450in-lb, or 550in-lb. I have the 350 one on my table and it's pretty good, but it bogs down a bit at the end of the travel..
03:59 AM amxen: morning
04:11 AM RyanS: hahaha "Almost everybody thinks that only expensive commercial machines (3d printers) are capable of producing parts with great accuracy:.... Now my prints are always within 0.05mm of the target size and I now model all holes exactly the size I want them." measured with calipers...
04:27 AM gloops: howdy
04:30 AM amxen: iv had a 3d printer for just over a week and the prints are amazing
04:36 AM gloops: 0.05mm isnt bad
04:37 AM gloops: for things that need to look ok, or just fit together, they arent bearing fits
04:38 AM RyanS: mines printing 1-2mm under
04:45 AM Wolf__: probably over extruding
04:46 AM Wolf__: my printer actually does pretty well holding tolerance with pla and petg
04:46 AM Wolf__: ABS it gets too much bite on the filament and stuff is all wrong sized
04:47 AM gloops: ive never used one
04:47 AM RyanS: yeah pla is better
04:47 AM Wolf__: https://i.imgur.com/kZMraDQ.jpg petg modled for cnc out of alum stock but printed for test fitting
04:47 AM gloops: i dont even know what my router does, all i know is - there is no visible error with the eye
04:48 AM gloops: joints fit perfectly, which says it pretty decent
04:48 AM Wolf__: just had to clean the seam and some hanging drips out of the holes, led lens fit easy
04:53 AM Wolf__: hmm, that thing looks weird with the lights out at the ends of it...
05:47 AM amxen_: so what machines do ppl run in here
05:54 AM gloops: think most are on the metalworking side - mills mainly, some routers, plasmas, printers, lathes
05:54 AM gloops: have been 5 axis dont know if anyone currently using one in here
05:58 AM gloops: thats my router https://ibb.co/gj9rj8
05:59 AM fragalot: Hey
05:59 AM gloops: fragalot is building a mill
06:01 AM XXCoder: mill is building a fragalot
06:04 AM gloops: the difference bewteen chinese nema23 and european nema 34 https://ibb.co/bNOnro
06:14 AM fragalot: ?
06:16 AM gloops: ?
06:16 AM fragalot: 12:59 < gloops> fragalot is building a mill <==
06:16 AM fragalot: were you going anywhere with that statement? :D
06:16 AM gloops: <amxen_> so what machines do ppl run in here
06:17 AM fragalot: ah
06:17 AM fragalot: well i've got a chinese cnc that i've been using for nearly 7 years ow
06:17 AM fragalot: now
06:22 AM amxen_: sold my chinese cnc about 3 months ago as i was not using it
06:22 AM amxen_: im not converting my mill to cnc .
06:23 AM amxen_: also have a creality cr10
06:23 AM amxen_: a chines mini lathe
06:23 AM amxen_: and a myford super 7 lathe
06:24 AM gloops: ive got an old britannia lathe heh
06:27 AM gloops: i missed a myford 7 really local, it was on about £90 all week on ebay, wasnt described as a myford 7, i still expected it to go much higher, when i looked it went for about £250
06:28 AM gloops: then again if id have started bidding it might have gone up a lot
06:32 AM IchGucksLive: hi all
06:32 AM IchGucksLive: from a sunny hot germany
06:33 AM IchGucksLive: gloops, they made it
06:33 AM gloops: yeah not a bad performance, should beat croatia now
06:33 AM gloops: youve just missed someone having problems with mach3 bob
06:36 AM IchGucksLive: gloops, how can someone have problems with this bob
06:36 AM IchGucksLive: there are 10.000 sold worldwide a week
06:36 AM gloops: he tried wiring it with a 5v psu, not usb
06:36 AM IchGucksLive: and 200.000 instructions on youtube
06:36 AM gloops: got a red light
06:36 AM IchGucksLive: RED ligt is ok
06:36 AM gloops: missed him 2 minutes ago
06:36 AM IchGucksLive: did you direct him to my Channel ;-(
06:36 AM gloops: well hes only got 5v on the output side
06:36 AM gloops: i think he knows how to wire the drivers , just the 5v supply he had problems with
06:36 AM IchGucksLive: he will get it
06:36 AM IchGucksLive: its a easy task
06:37 AM IchGucksLive: and modern driver do accept every bad wirering
06:37 AM gloops: yeah he'll sort it
06:37 AM IchGucksLive: ofcause 48V to the PC5V will be a misstake that burns in the ic
06:38 AM IchGucksLive: gloops, now its louce turn to win in silverston
06:38 AM gloops: maybe yeah
06:38 AM IchGucksLive: Hammilton
06:39 AM gloops: i dont watch F1 much
06:39 AM IchGucksLive: if mercedes power copwes with the heat
06:39 AM IchGucksLive: its almost boring t a high level
06:39 AM gloops: should be ok, its not as hot today, maybe 85f
06:39 AM IchGucksLive: but le tour de france is also the hig
06:40 AM gloops: this weather is gone tuesday
06:40 AM IchGucksLive: .weather Zweibrücken
06:40 AM theCockerel: Yahoo! Weather - Zweibrucken, RP, DE: Partly Cloudy, 23°C (73°F), Humidity: 41%, Gentle breeze 4.9m/s (↓)
06:40 AM IchGucksLive: clo here
06:41 AM gloops: .weather Sheffield
06:41 AM theCockerel: Yahoo! Weather - Sheffield, England, GB: Mostly Cloudy, 24°C (75°F), Humidity: 44%, Gentle breeze 4.9m/s (↓)
06:44 AM gloops: mostly sunny and a bit more than 75f
08:17 AM gloops: 6 boys safely out of the cave
08:38 AM fragalot: gloops: I neard they hired neymar as an expert
10:37 AM IchGucksLive: hi all
10:37 AM IchGucksLive: amxen, online ?
11:53 AM pink_vampire: hi
11:55 AM pink_vampire: do you know about step by step machining project source?
12:09 PM fragalot: hey
12:10 PM fragalot: pink_vampire: what?
12:11 PM pink_vampire: I'm looking for a book, or a pdf, that guide you how to make something, and also teach you the right way to do it
12:11 PM fragalot: there are many, could you narrow it down a bit?
12:12 PM fragalot: because there is no "right way" that works for everything, and there is no book that covers everything
12:14 PM pink_vampire: I have a mill and a lathe, so something that will have a nice project with drawings and everything will be nice.
12:15 PM IchGucksLive: hi all
12:15 PM IchGucksLive: pink_vampire, hi so big bisuness
12:15 PM pink_vampire: hi IchGucksLive
12:16 PM IchGucksLive: step by step machining project source MEANING build a mashine or a part
12:17 PM IchGucksLive: amxen, online ?
12:18 PM fragalot: https://www.amazon.com/Machining-Projects-Textbook-David-Averyt/dp/1590707796 <= pink_vampire
12:19 PM IchGucksLive: pink_vampire, this is a complex system you going after
12:20 PM fragalot: look at the "frequently bought together" section & keep digging through until you find something that looks good
12:20 PM pink_vampire: i looking for something with some complexity, like a clock or something like that, but not necessarily. I just want to make stuff on the machine that are known for "it s going to work"
12:20 PM fragalot: making a clock by hand is going to take a year, make sure you want to invest that amount of time :P
12:21 PM pink_vampire: fragalot: with cnc and HF spindle..
12:22 PM IchGucksLive: pink_vampire, why dident you just ask a juwelery shop around to make parts for them
12:23 PM IchGucksLive: goldsmith ...
12:23 PM fragalot: pink_vampire: don't expect CNC'd parts to come out as fully functional without hand work
12:23 PM IchGucksLive: Scale model shop like Airplane weelmounts
12:23 PM pink_vampire: like what parts? most of them just 3d print wax those days.
12:24 PM fragalot: jigs, tools?
12:24 PM IchGucksLive: this is mass
12:24 PM IchGucksLive: but not the expensiv stuff
12:25 PM IchGucksLive: im off 2 Garden Watering it is so hot outside tomatos are like in the desert
12:25 PM amxen: ordered a new breakout board the same as the last one that did not work . hope this one works
12:26 PM pink_vampire: I want to make something that look impressive
12:27 PM fragalot: pink_vampire: model engine?
12:27 PM fragalot: there's plenty of project plans out there for those
12:28 PM pink_vampire: but I have mostly sheet metal and plastic (acrylic and pvc)
12:29 PM fragalot: you just keep adding on constraints don't you
12:29 PM pink_vampire: heh yeah..
12:36 PM pink_vampire: i have 1" by 12" brass rod, and few 3/8" brass rods, and 2 12"x12" x1/32" sheet, alot of 1/8" and 1/16" aluminum sheet, about 2 12"x2"x3" aluminum bars, and alot of 24"x24" black acrylic 1/8", and 12"x24"x3/4" foamed pvc sheet.
12:36 PM pink_vampire: so those are the materials...
12:37 PM pink_vampire: any good idea what can i do?
12:37 PM fragalot: sounds like plenty to make a little steam engine that runs on compressed air (acrylic piston in brass cylinder?)
12:37 PM pink_vampire: the acrylic are all just 1/8" sheets.
12:38 PM pink_vampire: I'm only use them to make signs.
12:38 PM fragalot: thick enough for some designs
12:38 PM fragalot: stack them up if you need thicker
12:39 PM fragalot: or make a wind powered pump for in the garden
12:39 PM pink_vampire: I'm trying to think about metal based projects.
12:40 PM fragalot: even more constraints :D
12:41 PM pink_vampire: yeah..
01:43 PM gloops: all quiet on the western front
01:51 PM pink_vampire: hi gloops
01:51 PM gloops: hi pink_vampire, anything doin?
01:55 PM gloops: cooler conditions approaching the UK
01:55 PM gloops: thank goodness, we lived through it, the Great Heat of 2018
01:56 PM pink_vampire: I'm not doing much..
01:56 PM gloops: did you get the emco going?
01:57 PM pink_vampire: yes she is amazing!
01:57 PM pink_vampire: I got for her some replacement parts. and she is look as good as new
01:58 PM gloops: excellent
02:00 PM pink_vampire: the tail stock stopper was rebuild, and switches got replaced, and the change gear fork also replaced.
02:03 PM pink_vampire: other than that I was fully disasamble the whole lathe to the screw level, and scrub each part in a degreser, and fix the old oilers, and now it a beauty
02:10 PM Connor: Anyone have any idea how much torque needed for a power feed for a Z on a Bridgeport? I can do 450inb-lb, 550in-lb, or 650in-lb. I have the 450 one on my table and it's pretty good, but it bogs down a bit at the end of travel..
02:10 PM gloops: i knew you had the job in hand
02:11 PM gloops: seems like you need a bit more Connor
02:14 PM fragalot: gloops: don't jinx it
02:14 PM fragalot: :P
02:15 PM fragalot: Connor: depends on how smooth your bridgeport runs? easy enough to find out with a bucket of sand
02:15 PM fragalot: :P
02:16 PM fragalot: sit on the table, hang bucket of sand off of a 1ft lever (or other known length) & fill up until it moves you up
02:17 PM gloops: 450in-lb what is that?
02:17 PM gloops: have we got a Nm or hp figure?
02:17 PM gloops: i get it to be 50Nm
02:18 PM gloops: depending on screw pitch..id say thats quite a bit
02:25 PM CaptHindsight: https://youtu.be/FDrcpnVUcEE?t=19m50s time for a new drill press
02:26 PM pink_vampire: Connor: try with a torque meter and see what is show.
02:26 PM fragalot: gloops: the bridgeport clone we have at work requires both hands on the 30cm long handle to move the Z up
02:26 PM fragalot: I hate having to raise it
02:27 PM fragalot: CaptHindsight: I see nothing wrong there?
02:28 PM gloops: well, i reckon the BP is binding
02:29 PM fragalot: probably. I have no reference other than top lipton's remark when he showed off his fancy drill powered Z axis
02:30 PM fragalot: "if you don't get why this is a big deal, you probably don't own a bridgeport" --- 100% paraphrased.
02:32 PM gloops: just have to gear it down, or get a bigger motor
02:34 PM gloops: how much of the bridgeport cult is based on patriotic loyalty kind of thing, as opposed to real quality - ive never owned one
02:34 PM gloops: like with harley davidson say
02:38 PM fragalot: I think a big part of it is availability of them in the US
02:39 PM fragalot: and, you have to give it to the design, it is an incredibly versatile machine
02:44 PM CaptHindsight: heavy duty drill press that mills :)
02:46 PM fragalot: CaptHindsight: with a column you can move around to get to places other machines likely couldn't :-)
02:46 PM CaptHindsight: mine is near 60 years old, just about time to rebuild and square it back up
02:46 PM gloops: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Milling-Mill-Machine-Precision-Vertical-Milling-Machine-spares-and-repairs/232840637374?
02:46 PM gloops: that would do me
02:47 PM gloops: you can get your to within 2 feet of it
02:47 PM gloops: your car
02:49 PM fragalot: that machine does not look like it's ever been loved
02:51 PM fragalot: oh it's for parts, nvm :P
02:53 PM gloops: nah, he says it lights up, he just hasnt pressed any switches - thqat will work fine
02:53 PM gloops: nice patina on the dovetails

03:34 PM hendrik_cnc: hello guys, i would like to control my coolant system via linuxcnc/mesa. but my coolant system has a momentary contact switch, so i need to set one pin active just for a short pulse. can i do this with toggle? http://linuxcnc.org/docs/html/man/man9/toggle.9.html
03:35 PM CaptHindsight: a one shot

04:08 PM CaptHindsight: hazzy-lab: was that a skit from Hee Haw?
04:15 PM XXCoder: or red green?
04:15 PM XXCoder: yep red green
05:54 PM andypugh: Fusion360 lets you choose primary or secondary spindle in the lathe post. But doesn’t seem to make any changes in the G-code based on that choice.
05:56 PM pcw_home: isn't that up to the LinuxCNC post?
05:57 PM Tom_L: the post would definitely need to support it

07:00 PM XXCoder: 1956 gears unpacking, enjoy. https://www.evilmadscientist.com/2018/unboxing-a-vintage-gear-set/
07:00 PM XXCoder: gears made in era where there was no cnc
07:00 PM SpeedEvil: NC was a thing though.
07:01 PM XXCoder: pretty amazing. like when we landed on moon with computers weaker than el cheapo digital watch
07:02 PM SpeedEvil: yeah
07:03 PM andypugh: CNC isn’t _that_ much help making gears.
07:13 PM Tom_L: helical maybe
07:15 PM Tom_L: there are probably more efficient ways
07:37 PM SpeedEvil: It's invalulable if you want to make one gear.

08:17 PM ziper: ok
08:17 PM ziper: i'm going to meet the guy with the lathe tomorrow
08:17 PM ziper: he said something about the bed being cut near the headstock
08:23 PM ziper: oh looks like its even in the picture https://miami.craigslist.org/mdc/hvo/d/leblond-lathe-1000/6635804455.html
08:24 PM ziper: i'm assuming its not supposed to be a gap lathe
08:42 PM hazzy-lab: ziper: That is, humm ... interesting. I have seen some lathes about that size with beds that slid away from the headstock (instead of removing the block for the gap). Looked like that, but the base was very hefty to support the bed, unlike that leblond
