Heads up on the A2Z Boring Head Shank for the Taig

I had a project over the weekend that I needed to do a clean up bore on a cast iron motor pulley for my big lathe. I have a 2" boring head with a 1/2"

Re: Building a new control box for my Taig Mill

... I've just had a customer who is using servos on another small machine, and was planning to follow the same route on the Taig, but has now back-pedalled as

Re: Building a new control box for my Taig Mill

That is something I was considering, in fact I could buy a complete stepper drive system for the price of one of the ClearPath servo motors. I would like to

Re: Building a new control box for my Taig Mill

My first move would be to replace those motors with higher current motors with similar torque. Then you would stand a chance of getting good performance out

Building a new control box for my Taig Mill

I have a question about a stepper motor driver for my stepper motors on the Taig mill. I have a Taig mill that I purchased back in 2004 and I have been having

Re: DC drive for Taig lathe

... The usual technique is to sense the current draw and boost the voltage linearly to compensate. That works with all conventional DC motors, both PM and

Well I did one of those conversionThreadmill motor and controller on a Taig and it's the way to go.For those saying it's an over kill, simply don't know how

Re: DC drive for Taig lathe

Hi, I would not worry about the views of people who convert to a "treadmill" sized motor - such a drive source is quite capable of tearing Taig apart...... All

Re: DC drive for Taig lathe

I have both a Sherline lathe and a TAIG mill with the Sherline motor and headstock. The motor is a much stronger solution that the stock TAIG motor on the

Re: DC drive for Taig lathe

Plenty of power. Both ways you need to cobble the motor onto the lathe. I have a Taig with the tread mill motor and the limiting factor is the drive belt.

DC drive for Taig lathe

Can anyone tell me if the Sherline variable speed DC motor is powerful enough for all turning situations on the Taig lathe. I see that a lot of folks have

Re: Need Headstock

... Yeah, the chuck+arbor combination doesn't work well. Getting a full set of ER16 collets from Maritool or other supplier is well worth the expense. Screw

Re: Need Headstock

I finally used my rotary table yesterday. It is a Sherline one and I'm finding that my Taig is vertically challenged. The only way I could drill a hole in a
