Went out to the shop today with my trusty Fluke 12, I saw up to 300Vac out there. WTF.
Checked each side of the centertap and it was running 150v.
Powered up RPC, now I'm showing 245v hot to hot and evenly split across the center tap.
Played with the lathe, I see a momentary drop to 200v when I start it. Not too suprising. My network connections held up. My irc server never dropped a connection today. Started and stopped drive motor many times.
Had to fix the lathe a bit. My Clausing has a QC engagement lever that blocks changing ratio's in the QC box. A plate engages two short pins and it was loose. Had to rtfm to noodle this out.
Played with turning, facing, knurling, parting and threading. I'm used to a Leblond Servoshift so everything seems wrong. The worse thing is the half nuts engage by pulling up not down.
Checked voltage at end of day when I shut down rpc. Nice and normal.
Tomorrow, I'm going to id turn some threads for a 5c drawbar in some 1 3/8 .095 wall dom tubing. I'm starting to learn the girl. That 4 jaw independant chuck is a pita.
I hope my moglice repairs of the reeves drive holds up. Time will tell.
