    Will a 3 jaw power chuck work on a Warner Swasey #3?

    Ken, Current setup is just a (aprox) 1.5" od tube in the spindle that is lever actuated to push the collet into the collet nose. Was hoping to use the existing lever system to actuate the power chuck. Spindle nose is A2-6 so there are a lot of power chucks out there that will fit. Chuck

    Will a 3 jaw power chuck work on a Warner Swasey #3?

    My current setup uses the factory collets that are actuated by a push tube. Big hand lever provides the closing and holding power. Works great, but was wondering if the geometry is enough to actuate a modern CNC type 3 jaw. Thanks in advance. Chuck

    rigging a moore jig borer

    Just moved a Moore #2 to my shop. My rigger Gabriel had the correct threaded eye bolt. Once I got it to my shop, I opened the back lower cover and there it was, the original factory eye bolt. So check to see if you already have one in the machine. Chuck

    Recommended Bandsaw Blades for D2, A2 and S7

    Andy, I cut S7 all the time with a Do-all C4. Just the same coarse blade I use for mild steel, nothing special. Just cut 4" Dia. Inconel 718 with it the other day. Material is annealed right? Chuck

    collet storage ideas?

    This started as a stop-gap measure but I think I will make a cabinet with a swing arm using these plastic MIG wire spools. 5C shown below but 2J and TG 150's can be made to fit. Chuck

    Trouble to parting off on a regular lathe

    All good advice but the biggest improvement I found was to not deal with the compound and run the tool upside down, behind the work. Regular rotation. I use HSS blades to cut just about everything. Best cut off accessory I found was my Warner Swasey #3. I look forward to parting on that...

    Mobil DTE equivalent? Tractor Supply?

    Guys, Learning a lot here. Thanks for all the responses. So, my Warner Swasey #3 has a clutch and brake, that would point to a hydraulic oil. I can't be certain that DTE Medium is correct at this point. Original Warner Swasey description: W&S H-10 is oxidation and corosion inhibited turbine...

    Interesting drill press table lift

    Poor mans version of the above. Side wind trailer jack. Very quick to operate, been using it now for over a decade. Adds a lot of stability as well. I extended the table lock so that both the raising handle and table lock are easily reachable from the front of the DP. Chuck
