so recently Jim spent a lot of time calibrating and adjusting the Myford ML7 lathe we have setup in the metal work area. However it looks as if someone has been messing with the grub screws and throwing it out of calibration.
Bearing in mind getting it calibrated and adjusted takes a long time and requires a lot of steps.
This was something posted a few days back
Can we please note that no adjustments, of any type, are to be made to the Myford lathe without first entering into discussion here, or with the metalwork team, and obtaining approval. Myself and Stephen have worked incredibly hard between us to get some form of normality back to the lathe. I'm hoping an open discussion will allow minimisation of any errors
Then as a follow up recently this showed up on the Metalwork group
"All", it saddens me to have to raise this, and I am in somewhat of a state of disbelief, but some adjustments have been made to the Myford lathe, I know this as the parts that have been moved were marked, and, they have been moved by a considerable amount. Could whoever has made these adjustments please make themselves known, and explain, following my earlier request linked to this post, why they have not contacted the metalwork team before doing so, and, obtaining approval. For clarity, it is not possible for these parts to have moved of their own accord, or by the amount they have moved, and there was no reason whatsoever for these adjustments to have been made.
So outside of a laminated poster or getting the board to email everyone that’s been inducted, the only other thing I could think of would be a camera pointed at the myford area to figure out who’s been messing with it.
However this would likley open up a whole can of worms, since I remember the last discussion on telegram a year or two back surrounding camera’s didn’t end too well.
