I recently came into possession of this Myford lathe. It is on loan to the SS Explorer. It came with a DC motor which is unfortunate as we don’t want to be running the harbour generator to use it. I have therefore invested in a VFD motor and controller which I fitted today and successfully tested. The new motor has a 20mm keyed shaft which is larger than the old motor so now I am trying to source a 20mm diameter keyed vee belt pulley to make the lathe operational.
