I could use those gib strip clamps....anyone still have them?
Send me a PM if you would.
I sent them on to another member and waiting to get them back so I can finish my cross slide. When I do I will contact you.
Anyone have some springs and/or F3 or F5 felt cord - 3/8" diameter for spindle wick oilers?

Hey Rod, Do you have a tool pot grinder? You could grind the #3 morse hole. My Lathe's tail stock was buggered and to hard to ream. I ended up grinding it. :-)
Your message mailbox here is full you are not getting my messages to you.
Anyway the gib spreaders are in the mail.
Good morning - I'm wondering if anyone has a test bar for headstock/tailstock alignment avaialable for loan?
That's the first thing I made when I got my lathe.

Maybe a system like Ebay has where you can rate the person who you loan the tool to. If they returned it in good shape, returned it promptly etc.
If anyone has any stainless or brass round stock good for practicing on, I would sure put it to good use.
I'd like to queue up for the gib spreader clamps when they're available.
I have them... email me at edkolt (at) hotmail (dot) com
What a great bunch of people and a great forum. I'm new here and just purchased a 13 in swing sb lathe. Made in middle of year 1929. Just letting you know who I am. And if I could or need to ever borrow something if I could? Again thanks for being here. Brad
Hello - does anyone have a 2MT tailstock alignment test bar for loan? I'm also looking for a 2MT taper reamer. If so, please send me a PM.
