    Upgrading Old Traub Screw Machine (Photos)

    I agree if you have floor space several brownies set up and ready to go is a nice way to go. We have limited space so shoving in corner till needed without tube is nice. An 1 1/4 2g would run everything and not cost over $2000 and one guy could run 6 cutoff jobs no problems. RD

    Upgrading Old Traub Screw Machine (Photos)

    Used to have a couple traubs and they were made most as a cutoff machine. I could do more with the Brown and Sharpe so went with them. Most of your inexpensive machines are going to be single bar loads. B&S made a Lipe bar feed to feed multiple bars that worked decent. A used cnc lathe with...

    Geometric die head value.

    The 9/16 typically came with 3/4 shank I'd call screw machine parts dealers. They might have one or you can make one out of a chunk of 3" solid. Turn and tap two holes in mill. RD

    When to fix old machines. (Brown and Sharpe Screw machines)

    You can make a lot of parts on the G brownies with little overhead. A few years back you could buy for just above scrap. Picked up a few just for parts. You go to an auction buy a machine and pay for it on the first job. My biggest complaint was sorting through parts to pick out the last...
