    Electric motor bearings

    Have a noisy bearing in a 7 1/2 hp electric motor. It has zerks and greaseable bearings in it. Took it apart yesterday and cleaned half a pound of excess grease out of the end bells. These bearings are open on one side, sealed on the other. Other than they generally cost a bit more is there any...

    10EE Taper Clamp casting possibility - Martin Model

    If a guy has a machine shop why couldn't he make one? A friend of mine has a 12 CK. I loaned him the clamp from mine and he made his own. He's just a learned on his own hobby shop guy.

    12"C advice

    You stole that lathe!! Lucky you! I can't imagine Livermore would have run ALL the life out of a machine like it might have gotten in industry. Probably got oil changes and maintenance too. There are quite a few of us 12C owners here so you are in good company. I would check to see if it has oil...

    What is the allure of the 10ee?

    Ummm. No! One of these days I'll tell the story of how I got my CK. It had to be fairies. I swear... 🙂

    What is the allure of the 10ee?

    What was that all about thermite? An attemp to dazzle with brilliance? Maybe to baffle with BS? Yeah, I'm new here but not so new I can't spot a crack pot reply.

    What is the allure of the 10ee?

    It has been interesting to reread this thread. If the lathe fairies came and offered to swap a 10EE for my old CK I would not do it. If a guy has room and money to own a couple of lathes an EE would be nice. But for an only lathe they are just too small. And I wouldn't want the overly complex...

    10EE for parts?

    Cool!! I'm glad it went to someone who will give it an honest evaluation and maybe some love. As to the price you paid, consider that there was a dirty 6" South Bend on CL last week that didn't show much tooling with it and was an old gear change model. They were asking $1300 for it. Dunno...

    10EE for parts?

    I just read the forum rules and didn't see that posting links to auctions is a no no here. Mods delete as you see fit. There is a 10EE on Purple Wave. Says it is non operational... Maybe someone here needs it? https://www.purplewave.com/auction/220712/item/MD9233/Monarch-Shop_Tools-Tools-Kansas

    Reversing an rpc

    He doesn't wear his seat belts either. The horror!😱

    Reversing an rpc

    No. It's more likely your lack of reading and comprehension skills. I asked about reversing his idler - would it run backwards if he kicked the t bar the other way? And I asked IF the idler would run backwards would that reverse his lathe? Two simple questions that could have been answered with...

    Yes. Thanks. Really just wanted to know about reversing the idler.
