I finally got the lathe home, after I bought it I ask the chief if I had to get it out of there right away and he said no but I got a call last week and the needed it gone so today a friend and I picked it up. Its is in the shop. I took the gear cover off and checked it out and everything looks good. All the parts are there for the taper attachment. I now need to build a phase converter to light it up. I think I am gonna use a pony motor setup for now, easy and fast and at no cost.

1-2 Lathe

3-4 Gears

5 motor transmission combo

Yep, you suck.
Building the RPC won't be to hard to do. You don't need to get too fancy with it. Just be sure you have a big enough idler motor, 1.5 - 2 times your equipment motors HP.

That stuff is scattered around the shop now but I will get it all together at some point.

I got started on the RPC. The motor is a 5HP three phase. In its past life it was a cooling fan. And let me tellya the fan kicked my ass. First I cut the blades off so I could mount my fine China puller on it, then went to remove the two set screws out of the fan hub. One came and the other rounded out and I couldn't get it out and yes I tried pounding a star drive bit into it and used heat but no go. So I got the gas axe out and burned the set screw out and took it down to the shaft. Then proceeded to brake the puller but I got it to move about a 1/4". Next I made a puller out of pipe and welded it on the hub with a 3/4" fine thread bolt. I heated it and moved very slowly with the impact on it. It was within a 1/2" of coming off when I realized who ever the dumb ass that measured the bolt cut it to short. So i took a small sledge and start beating on it, after some time it flew off and cut my air hose then bounced and smashed my grinder A few years ago I would have started throwing things but now I calmly shut the air off and put the grinder in the repair pile.

The motor was mounted on a tube so I figured I might as well use it. I found a 1/2 HP motor in stock to drive the five horse.

1 Old mount

2 Cut the tube to length

3 plate for small motor it the brake

4 done

5 Found a pulley with a big enough hub, had to bore it out.

The motor had a 5/16" key but my fine China broach set did not come with one that size. The wife happened to be out in the shop when I was bitching about it. She ask me where i usually order things like that and I told her Enco. She doesn't like me buying find China tools and she went to the house and ordered me one, I asked her which one she got and she said the best one they had a Titanium coated one for $119. Gotta love that woman.
