  • Bought a lathe after 7 pints of stella?

    Having seen a couple of members have recently acquired (more?) CVA toolroom lathes, has anyone ever done as I did in the title, and bought a CVA- or any other heavy object after imbibing?

    I usually bid with a sniping program, it (almost) avoids that sort of trouble.
    Was your lathe the one in Hebden Bridge or thereabouts, & was it any good?

      Timleech,

      Yes it was- I seem to remember putting in a smaller bid, but hey what the heck, I was happy!
      PS I did see that it had the taper turning attachment bolted on.(Before bidding)

      Is yours a semi metric lathe?. This one has metric crossfeed, topslide, tailstock and rack but an imperial leadscrew? Also the screwcutting changedial has threads per inch but feeds per mm marked on it. Also taper has Degrees and mm per Dm marked. I would like to get hold a set of metric change gears for this machine. A part of the apron is missing, on RHS which would have the thread dial and the lower part a bracket for F/R switch.

      You have more experience with yours! Good luck

        Stellaaa

        I've seen guys propose marriage after 7 pints of Stella - and yes - some of them got some pretty heavy equipment in the end...

          The one I've just won is semi-metric, like yours. No taper turning, but I already have one with TT.
          I've got what is allegedly a full set of Metric changewheels which came with another lathe, I haven't yet sorted through them but intend to try them out with this newest lathe. They're a mix of two different DP, presumably for space reasons.
          I was a bit wary of yours because the bed looked rather rusty in the pics on ebay. I know digital pics do seem to exaggerate rust for some reason, has it cleaned up OK?

            Probably a lot like the Monarch 10EE - it uses 16DP gears through the imperial gear train, but to fit a 127 tooth transposing gear had to drop to 32DP, so the reverse shaft gets one of about 8 gears in 32DP and various tooth counts, meshing with a 127 transposer mounted to a 60 tooth 16DP to continue the gear train as normal. I've got some docs if you might find them useful. I have the 127 tooth 32DP (not mounted to another gear as yet) but haven't made any of the other gears.

              So would I - I suppose they'll go on that long list of "things to do".
              They're a mix of 16DP and 32DP but what PA?

                  For the benefit of us former drinkers, what is Stella? Seems like a funny name for a beer.

                    I assume they are referring to "Stella Artois".French beer?They have some semi-humorous ads on tv for it in these parts.

                      Stella Artois -- a good Belgium pilsner lager. It's very popular with the Brits, and has recently become very trendy in the US.

                          Wow, this post cracked me up, iv bought a few trinkets while inebriated and then wondered what the ups truck was doing at my house several days later but a lathe? Lurkerjo you have a serious problem, and Rgbai your not helping with your advise "let the booze do the thinking for you" What the hell is that?,,, some guy wants to get ahold of some quality machinery and ends up with a box full of blow up plastic girls and some aqua lube --- Not that thats ever happend to me, but I could see how it could --- not that it has, but still - could see how it could...

                            Well luckily LJ does seem to be happy with his purchase
                            I'm going for another look over mine tonight, see if it looks the same now that I'm committed to buying it
                            I was (fairly) sober when I pressed the button, so no-one to blame but me.

                              Actually it happened the other way round, I thought I had bought a pallet of inflatable dolls weighing 3300 pounds and later a truck turned up with a lathe on it.

                              Thats why I had to join this board.
