Re: A unipivot made from scrap

It was very odd, I have never come across it before, the spinning platter seemed to be attracting it. Really strange. I also wonder if it was causing other problems as the top end has opened up a load too since I moved it, it's almost as if I've taken a capacitor out of something...... Im kind of st...

Re: A unipivot made from scrap

Figured out what was causing the static problem.
Proximity to the curtains......
They are nylon. And also drag on the carpet.
Who knew.
Put the deck back in its usual place and no issues
Hooking the wires over the tie back hook might have made it worse

Re: A unipivot made from scrap

Proper install. Its on an arm board that was the original one from when the deck was built, set up for an rb250. I used the same geometry so it fits properly on this board https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/40647376463_5ae071acdb_k.jpg Cx unipivot testing by anthony cresswell , on Flickr Interestin...

Re: Edingdale GT, the ultimate Edingdale? Probably

Yep, that chassis was not up to scratch for me (I am a pain in the arse about mitre joints as you know) but Philip dealt with that super quick Sent me another one after checking it himself and wouldn't take any more money off me for the second one. Apparently he billed Hammond for it as it was one o...

Re: A unipivot made from scrap

I've put it on the lenco properly now rather than on the turret now, taken the at arm off.
So I'm now comparing it with the audiomods arm that's on Paul's 301.
Other than an odd static problem I'm rather pleased.
Onward!

Re: A unipivot made from scrap

Well I got it installed and had a cursory listen to it, and initial impressions are very promising. I had to make a turret for it so it could be installed to run on the lenco. Which was a pain in the arse. I dug out an offcut from a plinth I did to make it https://live.staticflickr.com/7832/46876336...

Re: Nothing In Particular

The dw717 is very very good, only problem I ever saw with them was the dust covers on the slide bar housing. They have a very small chamfer on the face where they meet the bars that collects muck. It can get dragged inside the linear bearings and make them abit graunchy but other than that, if you d...

Re: A unipivot made from scrap

Ok, got the wiring loom bodged on. It is a big fat bodge, I should've drilled out the wooden part of the arm tube, but it suffices for testing the arm..... It is sat in the mdf block as I was fed up of it falling over every time i looked at it funny... https://live.staticflickr.com/7844/32652393777_...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Look at s/h Bosch makita dewalt et AL too, they are practically indestructible, and spares down to the last spring and washer are readily available. Bosch and dewalt especially, they will sell them to individuals directly and not require a trade account to buy them. Makita used to want a trade accou...

Re: Nothing In Particular

I've had a Bosch gcm10 s for years now. I've used some of the cheapie ones aswell from evolution and rexon and found the same as Ed. Always a degree or 2 out. They can be adjusted to be spot on and within a few cuts have wandered slightly. They seem worse in terms of the blade coming straight down a...

Re: A unipivot made from scrap

made the last of the arm parts today and permanently assembled it. The stub and wand are epoxied into the bearing housing to make sure everything is rigid rather than just using setscrews Made the mounting plate (wrong wood, I couldn't find the bit of Makore big enough for this bit...) which is glue...

Re: A unipivot made from scrap

Having had something of a lean period in terms of work, I decided to revisit the unipivot. I had some other ideas for it over the last couple of months, and having had the md65 lathe for a good while I decided to use it for this project. Or series of ideas rather than project. So having got hold of ...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Is there anyone here who could machine a chuck backplate to have an 18x1.5 internal thread so I can mount it on my wood lathe? I got a 3" burnerd chuck that was on a lathe that had a tapered spindle nose, and the backplate is machined for it but mine has a threaded nose. I was going to machine it ou...

Re: Nothing In Particular

I'd agree with Phil, chances are when you jack the existing joists they will crack in places where the rot is bad. Better to get as much out as possible after jacking it. Wouldn't try moving big heavy stuff until it's shored up with the props though. then replace the joists once the floor boards are...
