A young man here has acquired a Harrison Lathe which was desdined by a school in North Uist to the skip.
I have not yet seen the lathe and hope to do so when the gales stop but I thought I would throw in a question here in the meantime.
Should he convert to single phase?. I can give him a suitable motor. or would he be better to go for some sort of converter and keep the existing motor.
Given that he is currently working in North Sea maintainence I don't think that cost is a priority.
A few thoughts on the best way to proceed would be appreciated.
I realise that you wish to know the type and model of the lathe and I hope to find that out tomorrow when he calls and takes me down to see it. He thinks I am too old to manage on my own.
