All the latest news about the world of motorcycle and two wheels. The latest models of motorcycles road, scooters, motocross, trial, enduro, trials and news on the industry and sport motorcycles. The Italians have had their day, the 269th of the year at Imola on Sunday. Not only the Ducati did well with 5 podiums (three in the first race and two in the second) but Massimiliano Biaggi on Aprilia became the new World Superbike champion engine lathe. Biaggi, who had not won championships after its heyday in the 90s in 250cm3 revives late with success, he is 39. It took the return of Aprilia last year to give wings to pilot Roman, which saw Valentino Rossi on his way to MotoGP, to be content with the title of vice-champion in 2001 and 2002. After a slump in 2006, literally without handle, he returns to racing in WSBK next year with Suzuki and Ducati in 2008, and finally in 2009 with Aprilia. Due to rain yesterday, the start was rather unusual, and Carlos Checa who Saturday had not been able to beat the ninth time, lift your pack, slowly and surely in the first race, and certainly (in 4 laps) in the second, to afford two great victories, his third this season at Phillip Island after opening engine lathe. Leon Haslam, still in contention for the title, perhaps pushing a bit too much with the only victory in mind, out of the runway twice in the first race, the second burst hearts when they battled for victory in the last turn. Haslam finish fifth after his little excursion into the gravel. His chances for the title, Biaggi is dragging their feet in 11th place, were still good. But in the second, a mistake on lap 7, then a blown engine lathe on lap 10 will put a end to his dream of a crown, because now concedes Biaggi to 63 points out of a possible 50 engine lathe. . Engine power must be commensurate to the size of the pieces you intend turning. For minitorno engine lathe will be fine 1 / 4 or 1 / 3 hp; for something a little more versatile, 1 / 2 or 3 / 4 hp, and for larger and heavier pieces, 3 / 4, 1, or more hp. The appropriate speed of these engines should be between 1400 and 1800 rpm, which are used for turning speeds engine lathe. This speed is usually indicated on the metal plate attached to the engine, with specifications. However, the speed that will develop around the shaft (which ultimately is the speed that interests us) is given by the pulley that has the motor and the shaft of the lathe. I suggest you look carefully Freddys's post (entitled "extra engine, the better we become a vice") where there are many precise data on calculation of pulleys and gears. Anyway, I recommend you start by thinking about the design that will take the head (hold the shaft) and the main or "rails" engine lathe. These are the two key elements. Hello turner, this figure of 3 / 4 HP 1725 RPM and ideals that should be a single phase motor for a engine lathe capacity 12-inch maximum diameter of pieces rotation is shown in the table below for a song called Electric Motors Common Jobs. This article by MP and the table below is intended for USA and the countries that use electrical service at a frequency of 60 Hz-60 Herz. As explained there, the standard for this phase motors are often sold in 1725 RPM and 3450 RPM engine lathe. Also delivered more torque and higher speed the first second. Like your country is using electricity at 50 cycles Herz-50 engines that are often standard for 1400 and 2800 RPM. . engine lathe.
