  • The mill is now running

    I just finished getting the Lagun up and running. I got the motor voltage changed then knocked out a couple of washers to fix the bo bo in the wrong size knockout coming out

    Now to get started on the DRO

    DRO? Didn't that Lagun come with dials?

    Lets see. You got a nice mill up and running and you show a blurry picture of a wire?

    Just got my electrical box in for the VFD. Hope to have my Bridgeport spinning over the weekend. Still have to plan out the wire routing and box location though.

        Hey I was excited to get it up. It's been a challenge because of the motor voltage and the lack of a diagram in the cover.

        The blurry control box was the washers I had to make, my BIL was helping with the wiring and knocked out a larger knockout by error.

        I'm gong with a static phase converter and it so far is working great. If I'm not pleased later on I will do a RPG

        Yes but I purchased a new DRO to go with it. The original one was removed

          That's one of the best cable entries I've seen, could you tone down the machine porn to PG for me and show a little more table, maybe a touch of spindle, sorry I'll go wash out my mouth with soup.

              Damn, you must have a hell of a temper! A rocket propelled grenade just to blow up a static converter? Oh, well, it's your shop. If you decide to get your mill running after that you could buy or build an RPC.

                Next time I do a build thread, I'm just going to show close-ups of the used paintbrushes and empty parts boxes. And to think I've wasted all this over the years showing sections of the actual machine.

                  Guys I did post the machine earlier l do have some video of the spindle running just could not link it

                  My thoughts on the phase converter is since I don't anticipate need all 3 HP. However I could be wrong so one needs wiggle room

                  This is the pictures I have the head is now rotated

                  Hopefully I get more done next week

                      Nice looking machine! Variable head is nice.
