Step 1: Protecci�n contra viruta (chip protection)

Picture of Protecci�n contra viruta (chip protection)

El motor es muy robusto y se ha bancado perfectamente hasta ahora la entrada de aserrín y viruta, pero no hay que abusar. Podría ocurrir que en medio de un trabajo una partícula de madera haga que el motor deje de funcionar.

Pensé en cubrir las aberturas de la tapa con tela metálica, pero consideré que era muy probable que esta se obstruyera con relativa rapidez, ocasionando así el recalentamiento del motor por falta de enfriamiento. Así que simplemente tomé un trozo de lata proveniente de un aerosol usado, le hice dos agujeritos en un costado y lo aseguré con las tuercas que mantienen las tapas en su lugar.

The engine is very robust and has held up well so far the entry of sawdust and chips, but do not overdo it. It might be that in the midst of a work , a particle of wood makes the engine shutdown.

I thought to cover the openings in the lids with mesh, but it was very likely that this will obstruct relatively quickly, causing engine overheating due to lack of cooling. So I just took a piece of tin from an used spray, I made two holes in its side and secure it with the nuts that hold the covers in place.

This is very cool! Great instructable!

Lastly (after the instructable) I did some grooves in the lower cone, that improved a lot the transmitted force.

Excellente Instructable.
Yo uso estos carretes tambien, los que yo compro son para puertas de la ducha, o para otras puertas correderas.

Excellent Instructable.
I use these reels too, the ones I buy are for shower doors, or sliding doors.

Thanks for your comment, Bobby. Really I don't use a lot the lathe, only some hours weekly. Turning is a very pleasant task, but I must do many other things.

Gracias! Realmente mejoró en forma notable. Ya no rompo los vidrios de la galería con trozos voladores de madera. (Thanks! Really it improved markedly. I do anymore not break the glasses of the gallery with flying pieces of wood).

It is always good when you can refine a tool until it is just the way you want it.
