Would by chance anyone know of a 3 jaw manual chuck 5" that is made with a A2-3 back ? Looking for one without backplate to increase Z travel distance. Would love to find a power chuck but not having much luck in the states. Thank for any info. Mike

Re: USB Floppy emulator on my TU150U

Thank you for the info. BTW I had seen in your other post that you have a lot of the keyboard overlay sheets. You by chance wouldn't want to sell me one or 2 would you? I have been cutting up old file folders and drawing the buttons on. Doesn't work to well when you get a spray of coolant on them. I...

Re: please help me find software for TU150-E lathe

Yes it uses dos. I am in the learning mode at this time as I try to spend time with it between jobs here in the shop. I want to use the machine to make taper pins, but I keep screwing up the programming. Maybe a couple more beers and it will all make sense. Mike

I see you have the serial number EO5299, I have the same machine with serial number EO5266 manufactured in November. Small world I guess. Mike

Re: cyclone tu150e

I may stand corrected and now think it is a DM8 , I did find a drawing in some older posts on here . I took the cover off the electrical wiring machined box and it looks good inside . I will continue to investigate.

Re: cyclone tu150e

Well I have made leaps and bounds in getting the lathe to do something. The current problem is the tool turret will not turn. When I go "Home" and then "jog" to type in the tool number all I can hear is a humming like its trying to turn , but no such luck. Would anyone have experience in this matter...
