    Another one gone, SKF Bearing In Avon, Ohio

    I'll second that. They get some fool as a CEO who doesn't even know what a bearing is to run the company. Sure, the guy successfully might have run some other company. Maybe he was a Venture Capitalist who made a fortune for his shareholders. Anyway, its a recipe for disaster when fools like...

    Can my SB Heavy 10 cut left hand threads?

    It’s been a couple years…but I did it on my 9” SB. I’m pretty sure Mr Pete on YouTube has a very detailed video on cutting left hand threads on a South Bend lathe.

    Why do people buy massive lathes for their home shop?

    Beggars can't be choosey. You snatch up what shows up on Craigslist in my part of the country. You guys in California and the East coast are spoiled.

    My Dads Shop- advice for liquidating

    Sounds like your dad owns the building and you’re not under the gun with going into Probate. You can spend a little effort and time and get a much better price. That said, if money is of no issue, then you can be done with it licked-ly split. Personally, I think I’d take a stab on EBay. If...

    Grinding Stuff

    Can you email me a picture of the spindle. I have an old Parker Majestic that’s 3” diameter and a rear mounted motor. Mine is an old plain bearing that’s leaking oil pretty bad so I’m looking for an upgrade. A picture and some overall length specs would help me. Thanks. - Tim

    How to know when its time to move on

    Money was never the issue with me. It got down to too many thieves in the shop steeling my tools which finally pissed me off. I actually liked my last job. I can’t stand thieves. The real good private businesses which are run by men and woman who realize that they would have never have been...

    100,000 UK Covid 19 Deaths

    Autism is nothing new. What’s somewhat “new” is its name… Autism. The fact of the matter is that biology and nature favors that the young procreate. Unfortunately, in the last 3 decades we have seen women in their late 30’s and 40’s have children. And the fact of the matter is that over...

    Retirement Day

    I totally agree with all of the above. But to add to that I firmly believe leaded gasoline was a major factor of early deaths in the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s. America alone was adding lead to gasoline from the 1920’s to the phase out in the 1980’s It’s estimated that America alone added 7...

    Lodge Shipley Powerturn - Baton Rouge

    Yes...a very sweet machine. Lodge and Shipley had a good rep as being top notch machines. And that's a "late model" version. Really up there with the best. I hope it goes well for you Akajun. Normally I wouldn't have posted a Craigslist on PM but I was actually hoping someone local would see...
