    Default 1934 16 Clutch parts missing

    Hello everyone,
    I recently acquired a 1934 16 x 7 Series O apron lathe from a family friend. It was originally shipped to Newport, RI to the Naval Torpedo Yard. It then made its way to Southeast Texas and eventually to me. There is minimal wear in the ways and the bearings seem to be in pretty good shape. I am currently tearing down and rebuilding the saddle and apron, but have found a major show stopper. There are no clutch parts whatsoever and the worm gear, key, and its bushings are also missing. If anyone has these parts or can send me drawings of these parts I will greatly appreciate it.

    I have already had conversations with Ted and look everyday on EBay.

    Thanks in advance.

    John, is the OPs machine going to be the cone-type clutch or the disk type?

    Thanks johnoder.
    I may have to resort to buying a whole machine like that to get mine going.

    Good question - don't have "O" back of apron view - just "N" which has discs with the finger style spring

    Thumbnails from 17-C parts lists - says Series O has cone clutch

    I have a copy of Bulletin No. 19-B from 1935 that lists the repair parts for my lathe and the clutch assembly shows 8 parts. None of these look like other clutchs I have seen on later models but Im not sure what cone or disc is specifically.

    Thanks to Mr. Wells, we have a 1933 scan

    http://www.wswells.com/data/catalog/...etin_101-A.pdf

    You have to consider there may be old and not quite that old Series O, which may not be exactly the same in their parts

    Is it possible that the O and N have the same pitch and thread OD on the worm and same OD and tooth count on the clutch gear?

    May be entirely differing pieces since the O is single wall apron and the N is double wall

    N scans here about half way down - bltn 100 and 200 - have great photo of inside of apron
