    Default 1928 9" - Almost....

    Been a while since i posted and a good pause between clean up and getting lathe stand made. Finally have lathe on stand and new belt ordered.

    Stand is 11ga. 316L stainless and tray is 16ga. 316L stainless.

    Hopefully have her up and through paces soon.

    Thanks. Hole at tailend is for a drain. Plan on active cooling. Once i get it 100% up I'll start a dedicated thread. Got a bunch of pics of different stages of cleanup. Some cellphone, some Canon 80D.
    Not sure why i ended up with 4 threads from changing pics.??

    That's a beautiful lathe. Nice job.

    I would urge you to think carefully about flood cooling for it though. While that sort of cooling has its place in an industrial production setting, I have found that the coolant gets into places you'd rather it didn't and many of the coolants that I've seen discolor iron parts so if you have a pristine lathe like yours, you may have trouble keeping it that way.

    Ditto that. Good job looks nice.

    Appreciate the feedback everyone. I have a replacement motor i am going to use initially, but am planning on pulling apart, cleaning and trying to get original back to working.
    In fact, immediately working on adapter to employ newer motor without damaging or altering original base. Still need to braze switch arm back together as well.
    I dont think i will be necessarily flood cooling, but directed air/coolant misting. Just an idea. Like to try, but if it doesn't prove useful...

    Ditto on the nice machine. Taper attachment for that year is rare. I have 2 wide nines. No taper attachments. Is your gear box a 2 threads per inch gearbox?
    If it is I modified my gear train to double the threads on the quick change gearbox. Starts at 4 threads per inch now. The mod was simple and did not alter the looks of the machine in any way. It does however have a newer QCGB chart for thread selection.

    Love that lathe! I have one just like it (1929), minus the taper att. I use mist coolant a lot on my Sheldon and it greatly increases cutter life. It may not be worth the time or cost on the SB, since 'pushing' the performance on these usually amounts to machine limits instead of cutter limits.

    Yes, starts with 2 TPI

    Thats my thought, help with tool life and also help keep part cool, clean up finish.

    Got real lucky with this. Looks like it was used briefly and for what ever reason, left alone. The grime it was covered in, when i got it, definitely protected it over the years.
