    Lathe Series 61 Parts List

    I have a manual in good to poor condition listed as a Series Parts list. Missing cover. First page starts withe page 5 and end with page 80. Page 5/6 and 79/80 are detached but very readable. I assume it's for a Monarch Series 61 lathe. Free to someone that can use it that's willing to pay exact...

    Way cover for Gorton MasterMill

    My desire is to protect the cross feed screw. Ways are in perfect condition and it look like it has way wipers. The mill has square ways not dovetail. Center raised section is 5"wide X 12" long but does not come in contact with the carriage above similar to that of a ToolMaster mill. My concern...

    Way cover for Gorton MasterMill

    I have 12" rated cross travel, might be a little more but can't check it at this time due to the machines location. However I did move the cross as far back as it will go and have 12" of ways exposed. What is the total collapsed length of the Gortite cover on your BP. I have longer travel but...

    Chinese DRO quality

    I really don't want a DRO with all the bells and whistles I will never use. Too many have the face of the DRO with so many buttons it makes it hard to use. My Anilam Wizard does have quite a few features but not buttons. For example if you want to find the center edge find one side, 0 then the...

    Chinese DRO quality

    Seem odd they don't make them. There are a lot of machines that don't need the bells and whistles like surface grinders and Horz. mills. It's possible they are called something else, maybe I should add surface grinder to my search, actually I would mind having a simple readout on my grinder.

    Chinese DRO quality

    I give one a try. I did make an offer on one, they countered but it said it's out of stock. Thought maybe the counteroffer was to me for the last one but the seller has yet to reply to my question if it was available. But it does have a lot of features I don't want as I mentioned in previous...

    Chinese DRO quality

    I want a simple DRO with no bells and whistles. I do have a Anilam Wizard on my Jig Borer that came with the machine but never use the functions other than the direct reading X and Y. Often I get needed dimensions from Auto CAD or calculate polar coordinates and mostly do one ofs. I simply...

    Chinese DRO quality

    I have 2 Sony, Anilam and a Sargon that have been working very good, no problem except with last power outage. Sony's still work great, Anilam needed setting change and it's working now too. Sargon is dead but I do have an Anilam Miniwizard I can use. Might give the Chinese DRO a try.

    Chinese DRO quality

    I've noticed DROs made in China in ebay cheap! Would be nice to put one one my Horizontal Mill though the dials have served me well. DRO would be easier to see and easy to zero. Most of the computers are made in China as well as cell phones. I have a cheap Shinese digital caliper in my home desk...

    Taper cutting tool for Moore Jig Borer tool holder storage

    Is the a Taper cutting device to cut the approx. angle of a Moore tool holder? I purchased 3 Susta brand tool storage holders from HGR some time ago. I have attached the frame near my Moore #3 Jig Borers. I have 2 frames of 11 holders each full of holders. However a number of the hard Red...

    Analam Wizard help

    Thanks again Martin. Rereading the manual I see the code I should have used is1000101 in X and 0000101 in Y. Not sure why the last 3 digits being 0 worked unless I have .00005 scales. First digit in X is for turn on in inch or metric. I'll try re-entering the code and see what happens. I check...

    Analam Wizard help

    Thanks to Carbide Tip that e-mailed me the manual. I did push #8 ten times and got into settings. X was 1000111, Y and Z were 0000111. I changed X to 0000111 and nothing changed. Changed X and Y to 0000000, being Z is not used I did nothing to it. Works!! now when moving the dial .1000" DRO...

    Darex M-5 info needed

    When you finally get the chuck apart be careful not to mix-up the fingers. They must go back in the same location they were removed from. I have them color coded with fingernail polish. The grinder works best with Diamond or CBN Borazon wheels
