  • As some of you know, I have wanted to stop managing H-M for some time. It's a tremendous strain on my personal life. I want to set up my own shop. In September, September 15, to be exact, it will be 8 years that Hobby-Machinist has been in existence.

    We've seen a lot of changes. In March, 4 moderators left to start their own site. They took some of you with them. So now you have split loyalties. You know who you are. They didn't like my way of managing this place, and thought they could do better without me. They didn't. The only thing holding them together is that they hate me. Their site was down until mid July. That is why I wanted to stay involved on here until they could learn to run this place. But they wanted me to leave right away, without the training part.

    Anyway, I have been training VTCNC to run things here. Dabbler is going to learn too. I feel that they are ready to start taking over the operation. I will be here to help in case they need, but I don't think they will. Tony Wells is and will be here also to consult with. I will be doing backups, upgrades, and installing addons. Other than that, I don't want to know about this place.

    What about the 4 moderators who were disloyal? I don't care. It isn't my call anymore. I would think that, rather than fumble, they ought to come back and do good work. That's up to them. If they want to return to try to lead more members to their site, I am done caring. I suffered too much aggravation worrying about it. I don't plan to spend any more. What they do impacts on them. I have my own opinions including those of you who followed them there. No longer my problem.

    I am leaving this place in good operating condition, and financial condition.

The chuck has a threaded collar above it , is that collar to push the taper apart to remove the chuck from the spindle ? And is it part of the chuck or spindle ?
Thanks

Yes, it is to remove and retain the chuck; on the one that I had, it had a morse taper instead of the chuck. Mine was equipped with a 3 phase motot and a drum switch so that we were able to use it for tapping.

The dp was sitting for 15yrs , there should be a jt33 taper hiding in there but it’s on there tight I’m hoping some heat might persuade it to come loose, so is the collar a separate part or ?.

In have a Walker-Turner DP with the same set up. Inside the collar are ball bearings that are wedged between the collar and the chuck to prevent the chuck from coming off due to side pressure.

The collar is a separate part, it stays on the spindle, I think. It should come off CCW; I would not advise to use heat. Use a nicely fitting spanner with a hammer, while holding/clamping the spindle stationary. I think the top end of the chuck has male threads that the collar engages. Some penetrating oil there may help.

So do I turn it up to push on the spindle, or turn it down to push on the top of chuck

Got it off, the collar is part of the chuck and needs to push on the chuck top not the spindle.
Just to happen to have the rite size spanner wrench.
