Hi there, Peter,

Thank you for your post.  In answer to your question - Simon was eager to get his polishing job finished and so I didn't investigate the stator configuration closely.  It was enough at the time to just check the windings for freedom from damage and to fit a replacement capacitor.  I can't remember the details of the winding resistance measurements but they seemed appropriate to a single phase machine run & start windings.

hah, don't get me started!! not enough hours in the day!!!

To get all the noob questions out of the way: i have projects for which I have made a photo journal of the build but not written up yet, where would you recommend they go? I understand the Gallery is for finished masterpieces and the Project Logs are for ongoing stuff. Where would you post an 'after-build log'?

My Webster falls into this category. Running, almost finished but plan to make a Jan Ridders vapour carburetor and electronic ignition to finish off.

Thanks,
Patrick

Gallery is fine for an after build log

It's an elderly Wolf double-ended grinder fitted with two shaft extensions to take the polishing mops.

Maybe a stupid question, but is it a single phase grinder, or a modified 3 phase?
I didn't know the wolf brand before I was given an old grinder that I am overhauling, but mine definitely is a 3 phase machine. Because of my lack of knowledge of the brand it is definitely very possible or even likely they also made single phase bench grinders, but I thought it might be worth mentioning. I am impressed with the quality of my machine though! I am even going through the trouble to make modern bearings fit ( because I can't get the original Imperial bearings new). To bad the beautiful brand shield is missing...

Where do you find time to farm?

I hope you get it, for our entertainment :)

thanks Eric (the Gin is not that bad honestly  :beer:) . I will post pics as soon as i figure out how.

Sorry for the noob question but what is the best place on the forum to share completed projects and build logs?

Patrick

Eric

Ade beat me to it...

I like Gin, just no plans to attempting making it. Though, I have most of the stuff to start brewing Meade! Just need more hours in the day...

Well at least you know what your doing mine is on the back burner for a few more days until my Haas tm1p gets delivered on monday from what they say trying to sync up the riggers and tech guy who has to pull off the feet and replace them once inside the garage.

The lathe powered when we got it and seemed ok but now everything passes but stops on a "HOST CONTROL INITIALIZING " with just the fan running.
