02-08-2008, 03:10 PM
i have a kwik way fwh small boring bar that is air over hydraulic,for the feed.i would like to convert it to a leadscrew(instead of the hyd.cyl.) and was looking for some recomendations,as to some possible motors to use.it will need to be reversible,and i would like to be able to "put it in neutral" so to speak.as i would like to be able to hand crank it for cutting counterbores for sleeving operations.is it possible to buy some premade leadscrews?i have looked at the dewalt motors on robotmarketplace,but not sure how to convert them from 110 to 18volt to run the motor.any help is appreciated.
