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

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:

The answer is 452.893Hz

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!

McDSP ultimate Compressor and Eq

Today I had the good fortune of meeting with Derek Heimlich of McDSP. Derek introduced me to a solution to a grief I’ve always had with software plugins. After his introduction and chat about this product, I blurted out that “Software has sucked, until now”

McDSP has released the 3060 Ultimate Compressor and 6020 Ultimate Equalizer bundles.

Until now no software allowed users to switch the character of an equalizer and compressor without loosing their settings. Modeled after some of the industries most revered equipment, McDSP comes through with another must have studio essential tool. This functionality gives you a true A/B between different compressors and equalizers. A unique experience. “I know what I want to achieve when I compress and eq, all I ever want to do is change the character”. As far as I know this is the only piece of software that keeps the EQ and compression setting between plugins. A+ work in my opinion.

I would suggest you give them a shot today for your next project. McDSP offers a free demo that is a worthwhile experience and great investment, check it out.
