    2-Speed Motor Switch

    Normally I wouldn't bother with this but.... I remember someone was looking for a Furnas JED-4 2-speed motor switch and I just happened to see one for sale on Facebook. I think they are pretty difficult to find so if you're interested you can try to get in touch with the seller. Listing says...

    How to turn/grind between centers with deliberate small eccentricity?

    I was going to suggest the same thing as eKretz. Thats how we used to machine journal bearing surfaces eccentric to existing centers.

    Talstock dial

    I am planning to do the same thing for my 13 tailstock. I purchased a dial, its 125 mils per turn which matches the 8 TPI threads on the quill. I will have to make a new screw thats longer to accommodate the dial but it shouldn't be too difficult. I probably won't get to this project for...

    WTB - Milwaukee 6180-20 Chop Saw

    Looking for a Milwaukee 6180-20 heavy duty abrasive chop saw in good condition. I'm not interested in the 6177 line of saws that are more common. Thanks, Jonathan

    Small Abrasive Chop Saw - Recommendations

    The chop saw will mainly be used for materials I can't cut in the bandsaw (or don't want to) such as hard steels. I probably won't use it that often, but when I need it I want something I can rely on to work properly.

    Small Abrasive Chop Saw - Recommendations

    All, I'm looking for a new or used abrasive chop saw that isn't too heavy and also isn't junk. Maybe that combination doesn't exist but thats why I'm asking. I need a saw that I can put on a bottom shelf when not in use, so nothing that weighs 200 lbs. I've read a few good things about...

    Looking for 2 Speed Motor for 13" SB

    Thanks abarnsley, that's some really good information. Any opinion on max RPM a standard 13 can sustain indefinitely?

    What do you want young engineers/designers to know?

    Young engineers need to know how to use geometric tolerancing when appropriate so that manufacturing isn't trying to guess the intent of tolerances.

    Interesting 13"

    Hey Guys, I ended up purchasing this lathe and my ultimate plan is to remove the feed stop system and try to install on my later model 13. I believe the rod below the apron moves left or right to disengage a clutch mechanism between the QCGB and the leadscrew. Therefore it can be used to stop...

    WTB: Wells 5M Bandsaw

    I got a few PMs about this but I think they were scams. So, still looking for a real live 5M from someone here in the USA.

    Looking for 2 Speed Motor for 13" SB

    The last couple of threads I have started only achieve like 50% relevant posts. That's irritating. Baldor sells a 2 speed frame 145 motor for around $1000, which is pretty steep for me. Thats the list price, I think purchasing through a local motor shop could probably get a good discount. I...

    WTB: Wells 5M Bandsaw

    All, I'm looking for a Wells model 5M horizontal bandsaw in good condition. I have an 8M in good working condition that I could possibly trade, but its a little too long to fit in my new shop. Thanks, Jonathan

    Max Material Removal Rate

    I've owned 3 lathes so far in my life, a 9" SB, a 16" Monarch, and a 13" SB. The Monarch was difficult to make use of its fully potential for material removal. However the 9" and 13" have more limitations. So, I thought I would see what settings people have had good success with for max MRR...

    FS: Monarch Micrometer Carriage Stop

    Guys, I bought this micrometer carriage stop some years ago hoping it would fit my 16CY, but it didn't. It's been sitting in a box since then and I'm finally getting around to selling some stuff. I think it fits a 60/61 series but may fit 610/612 also. Probably fits 13, 16, or 18" swing...

    FS: Royersford 21" Camelback Drill Press, NC

    Having just purchased a slightly smaller drill press I would say this is the price of a quality drill press these days. And this one comes with chucks and can be plugged into a regular outlet so the only additional cost is transportation. Most of the sub $1000 drill presses I have seen are...
