Re: parting ali help

thanks

So with these settings i should be in the ball park?
Regarding the parting tool lifting , does this suggest faulty turret with too much play or to be expected if settings are way out ?
thanks

Re: New Cyclone - need phase converter advice.

So it would be usefull for me to know what the rpm range and pulley ratio were on the original 2.2kw machine Mine is 2.2kw and the spindle will go up to 5000rpm (at least, that's what it says, I have no way to measure, but it looks scary fast!). Pulley ratio looks 1:1 Si this is where i need some c...

Re: max rpm

unfortunately the literature shows 4kw motors motors and no pulley sizes , but i would presume its not a 1:1 ratio to achieve 5000rpm i have seen the cyclone on youtube clearly marked 3700 max rpm so I'm guessing if its 1:1 then that's about 120hz so i need to know max hz to run 4pole 1,5kw 220v 3ph...

max rpm

i have a denford cyclone which has a 1.5 kw 4 pole ABB motor
the spindle and motor pulley look 1:1

so i presume 50hz is 1500 rpm spindle speed.

running through a 220v 3ph vfd what would be the maximum safe rpm for this machine/motor

thanks
