I have a call in to Miller Machine but haven't heard back from them. There's no need to change the dials because the TPI is the same. It would be great if I could just buy about 3 ft of the 7/16 size from Miller. I also emailed Steve Wells but haven't heard back from him either. I would expect...
Because of the lack of availability of 7/16-10 screw stock I thought it an easy upgrade to the readily available 1/2-10 TPI. I've been trying to find info from others on the pitfalls of this seemingly simple job without any success so I'm open to suggestions. I already have the 1/2-10 ACME tap...
We at Kankakee Community College have a 15" N series with n 8' bed that was donated to us. I disassembled and rebuilt it. We now use it as a demonstrator and have each student that goes through the program use it one class with the old style tool post and holders.
I started out with an SB 9A then went to an SB 10K and when that wasn't big enough I bought an SB 14 1/2". Now I'm looking for a 16". My personal opinion is that you can do anything on a 16" that you can do with a 9 but you can't do everything with a 9" that you can do with a 16". I could have...
My old '95 F150 went to my 16 yr old grandson last month. Had her for 19 yrs. My replacement will last me till I can't drive any more. XLT 5.0L, 373 posi rear end 4 x 4. My older truck was a Willys. I added a pic of my brothers two trucks too just because they're tough.
We get two papers a day, delivered to our home. First is the morning Chicago Tribune and second, the afternoon edition of The daily Journal covering Kankakee County Ill.
I should mention that we are in our late 60's.
This is a photo of the lathe as we received it and the progress I've made in rebuilding it. My next step is reassembling the carriage and apron, then onto the back gear and the motor/pulley assy. hanging off the back.
I've just reinstalled the QCGB & lead screw, and modified the split nuts from...
I'm rebuilding a 15" SB with the same thd on the spindle for our local community college and this piece would be put to good use. Please PM me with your address and I'll send a check or US Postal check out tomorrow.
Thank you Bob
I never did make the stops though. I never needed them.
I used a bolt with a thinned head and a couple of nuts for the auto feed stop. (last pic)
I only use it to put lines on dials and cut gears.
I did machine a set of arbors for it including 7/8" 1", and 1 1/4" as it only came with a 1" arbor.
Table stops for a TM
Woops, I see L Vanice posted some pics while I was posting this.
Here are pics that someone sent me a few years ago of the stops with some dimensions. Two different types. The last pic and 2 in the next post kick off the auto feed is my understanding.
These mills also...
