Luego de hacer el variador de velocidad, vino la cuestión de ponerlo a funcionar. No tenía sentido seguir usando el chasis anterior del torno, que era demasiado corto y además proveía una plataforma elevada para el motor, dado que la pieza a tornear iba directamente en el eje del mismo. Al cambiar la altura del eje del torno, también debería cambiar el soporte de la herramienta.
(*) I refer to My KISS lathe
After making the speed controller, came the question to put it to work. It made no sense to continue using the previous lathe chassis, which was too short and also provided a raised platform for the engine, as the piece to be turned was directly on the shaft. By changing the height of the axis of the lathe, I should also change the tool holder.
Step 1: Chasis (chassis)
I bought two pieces of 1m of angle iron, I lined them to the sides of the motor and attached across the ends with two flat bars welded. Then I placed the four screws that would subject the engine, and also soldered in place. Finally I added four rubber pads to absorb vibrations. I used the same as had the previous frame. Screw the motor in place.
