Hardinge Lathe 204 frame Motor

Looking to replace the 204 frame motor I watched my favorite teach on the subject

and that pointed me to the plate on the motor I have

Reading deeper into this, this is an OLD style of motor frame. 204 Stopped being used in 1953… Of course, mine is a discontinued motor frame…

Looking more at this I see the 203 and the 204 frames are similar it’s the screw mounting width that is different. I think an adapter plate could work. The only dimension that matter is D and U. U is 3/4″ so the center of the motor must be 5″ from the bottom of the plate. Obviously P must be smaller or equal. Watch out for the boxes that stick off the side for the wiring to enter.

LOOKING AT A MODERN NEMA CHART:

A D of 5″ is no longer a standard. The closest D is 4.5″ that leaves 1/2′ for an adapter plate.

All the newer motors have 7/8 shaft meaning the pully will also need to be changed. The 145T looks interesting… Some shopping:

There is hope.

There are also sexy stainless steel motors….

there are charts for the motor mount brackets:

Sound guy Xmas – ScrewDrivers

You can’t just buy one or two screw drivers for xmas, a whole set is a MUCH better idea.

I’ve had nothing but a fantastic experience with WIHA drivers.

This 33 Piece Drivelock screw driver set is a versatile and lightweight solution to carrying around 33 full size drivers.

On Compressing the English Language

Someone picked my brain the other day looking for a technique to compress language files.

After walking away to think about it… my method was to re-order the ASCII code to the letters by their frequency and the most common words by their frequency.

Where lowercase e is stored as an ASCII value using 1 byte
ASCII  e = 0x61 = 0b1100001 = 7 bits
vs
APK e = 0x1 = 1 bit

… this method stores an E in 1 bit.  This is similar to the Huffman Code with the addition of whole words being included in the code.

For example:

because” is the 94th most used word in the english language and in this method is stored in 7 bits.

I don’t know if this has been done before… but I would imagine it could compress Language files substantially.

I have thought about a third addition of using the most used 2 or three letter combinations commonly used.

Music Note Frequency Calculator With Cent Adjustment

A colleague posed a very interesting question:
“I am looking for any music/music math wizard help me figure this out. If I am moving the pitch of a song up by 50 cents (a quarter step?) What frequency is A instead of 440?”

Sounded like the kind of math challenge I like:

To test and confirm that it’s calculating properly, this is up 100 cents making G# 440

This is down 100 cents making A# 440

SOUND GUY XMAS! The family delivers sound guy gifts!!

I’m so lucky to have such thoughtful family.
I know how difficult it is to shop for us sound guys.
I hope the ideas I’ve been sharing have been of inspiration to eager shoppers.

I thought I would share some of the ideas my family and friends came up with that I missed and appreciate as professional tools and inspiration to learn from!

Super bright LED flashlight.  This one is very small, takes 4 AAA batteries and I bet will last a very long time!
