JayBee - Get a turbo 35, the integy is a great charger but it doesn't have any motor features.

JayBee,

Check out the Futaba cdr-5000 charger.

If you are going to spend $500 on the gfx35, you should take a look at the futaba. Its newer than the gfx.

Thx for the links. Have you heard of anything bad about the integy setup kit?

Oh yeah I forgot about the Futaba; how long has that thing been out? Is it a proven unit like the Turbo 35? I gotta do some more research on that one. My heart is torn against the Pro-Trak 30 though, that thing is awesome.
As far as the Integy set-up kit, the only thing I've heard bad about it is that it is not as 'NICE' as the new HUDY

In my neighbourhood, there aren't too many people that have the futaba yet. But I will see what info I can get for you. Check the futaba main site, the specs wow-ed me. If you get the temperature sensor with the futaba, that will make it the best all around charger i think. But at quite the price as well.

Yeah, motor run-in for the Futaba is an issue too, but I guess we can't have the best of everything. I've been on both of the Futaba threads and I'm sold but just to the point of comparing it to the Pro-trak and the T-35. I guess you really can't go wrong with either one.... right . I found some pretty long reading about the Futaba on a link I can't think of right now, so I better get to studying up

hey everyone,
i received my trinity tru-lathe 3 pro ysterday and love it... cuts very good even with carbide.

just a quick question though, will it give a better cut if i use the hardened steel v-guides as opposed to bearing supports???

it comes with both and i dont really now which is better...
ive been told by people bearings are great... and by others that i should definately be using v-guides... can anyone clear this matter up???

also... if i do make the change.... do i have to get them re aligned??? or will the be aligned when i insert them in place and insert the grub screws to hold them in place???

thanx
robbie

Robbie,

I have heard many people say that the hardened v-guides are the way to go since over time the bearings can have a little play in them which can cause problems. To be honest with you, I had a hudy lathe with bearing guides and I used it for a whole season and it cut the same the from the first day I bought it to the day I sold it. But generally, the v-guides will last long.

Hopefully someone else on this thread will help out in an answer too.

When you put the v-guides on they should be in place or aligned fairly well. I would think that there shouldn't be play and when you tighten down the screws, it should be ready to go.

The v-guides are definitely the way to go. However, you will need to check the alignment of the blocks. I won a hudy lathe and had to check the alignment when making a slight adjustment that required moving the blocks. The only way I know of doing the check is to cut a comm and check the width with a digital micrometer to make sure that it is not coned. I ended up using a mitutoyo micrometer, and I think i got the alignment to within +- 0.0001 inches or less. Hope this helps
