Jet Lathe "Elroy" - No power to Control Panel


Many thanks to @jeffhess for troubleshooting the machine Saturday! Appears to be a problem within the control box assembly, more info to follow.

Thank you and @jeffhess for maintaining the lathes. I know it feels like a thankless job sometimes, but we appreciate all of the efforts you both are pouring into this.

let me share the vacuum chuck we made in Calgary

Due to our high altitude, max vacuum was 26" of HG, and it came real close to that.

AND THEN… thefella whom wanted it pitched to loan a much bigger lathe, different threads for chuck, etc, and the vacuum attachment don’t fit it!

Ahhhhh…life in a makerspace!
