We have a ton of tips and tricks that we type out on a day to day basis on verious subjects, but never really record down as the search function on this forum is the pitts, and nothing is really orginized well.
Any chance of the hosts of this forum maybe opening a wiki for us to expairment with? Adding some of the common questions/awnsers to it, like:
What oil/grease do I want for:
Lathe headstocks, gearboxes, ways, cosmetic exposed metal surfaces (Like the body of a chuck)
'My lathe is turning a taper! my headstock must be misaligned!'
'3 Phase motors Verus 1 Phase, VFD's are your friend, Chinese start/run capacitors are not'
'How do I fix a chuck'
Most of these could just be roughly copy/pasted from our posts here and touched up as needed.
