    Jeweler Lathes Identification

    100% correct on the Boley & Leinen Reform. Can you identify the other parts you mention from the photos? Having a hard time finding much in the way of a good reference for "turns," can you ID them from any of my photos? Great information, thank you!

    Jeweler Lathes Identification

    Odd things Part 3: The gear gizmo looks like the gear change which feeds a QCGB or something on a similarly small lathe, but not any from the lot. The larger gear looks like a worm drive to me. Not sure what the wood thing is... but you never know!

    Jeweler Lathes Identification

    Odd things Part 1: Now for the fun part: The things that I don't know what they are or what they go to! Some are pretty obvious (the vertical attachment, for instance), but the specifics I cannot discern at the moment. The box of tooling had a lid at some point, and I cannot make out much of the...

    Accessories. These are pretty obvious for the most part, or I think I find find out in the literature. The 4 jaw says "HG" on the front of it.

    Jeweler Lathes Identification

    Lathe #3. This lathe is smaller, and the collet draw bar doesn't fit the collets from the other lathe (too loose), even though everything else is smaller. Note the reverse pulley and the indexing apparatus.

    Jeweler Lathes Identification

    Lathe #2. Maker is Waltham Watch Tool Co from Springfield Mass. Haven't tried to turn on the motor. The tailstock that was on here originally didn't fit right (too loose), appears to match the Lathe #1.

    Jeweler Lathes Identification

    Lathe #1. Tried to take a picture of the maker at the end of the bed but couldn't make it come out (it says "G Boley" then "2681" then "Germany". I haven't tried to plug in the motor, or moved anything other than the spindle because it needs oil.

    Jeweler Lathes Identification

    I generally hate these threads, but I couldn't resist... I'm out of town and bought the following lot sight-unseen. I will hopefully pick it up someone next week. I caught the ad on Craigslist 10 minutes after it was posted and locked it down immediately. It's being sold by a gentleman whose...

    Refurbishing a couple of HLV-EM lathes...

    Great job! What PPE did you use for the paint you used, and what flavor of Urethane Enamel did you employ? I'm terrified of the stuff -- everything I've read says to use a separate oxygen supply. I'm inclined to pay someone to do the job for me, but am having a hard time finding someone who...
