    1983? Leblond 14" T&D- Completely new to lathes and have no idea where to start.

    Three motors is correct: spindle drive motor, hydraulic pump motor for the servo shift & spindle rocking motion and the coolant pump motor in the tail end leg. From the photos, I'd guess this Tool & Diemaker lathe is a 5HC*** serial number. LeBlond Lathe Parts can confirm this.

    Can anyone out there ID this LeBlond lathe?

    It is a LeBlond sliding bed gap lathe. As I recall, the tail end leg is a Navy thing for shipboard mounting. The headstock appears to have the "variable speed handwheel" thing right under the quick change gearbox. A recent post was questioning this handwheel and its function.

    Another tpg question

    Back in the old days when TPG inserts were all the go, it was common practice to shim a CBT chipbreaker closer to the cutting edge with a piece or two of paper clip or brass shim stock. Mike

    Kennametals Expanding Mandrels

    This is a sleeve for an Erickson Tool Company expanding mandrel, a business which Kennametal acquired circa 1980. IIRC, Bristol Erickson, and perhaps Bristol Tool & Gage were somehow involved in those product lines, but that was 40 years ago. Birla Erickson was an India based subsidiary...

    Leblond duel drive mk1 replacement gears

    Many years ago, a friend who worked at LeBlond Ltd. suggested that shaved or hobbed gears would be less costly than their typical hardened & ground gears. You might suggest that approach to LeBlond Ltd. A pair of hobbed gears might be a bit noisier than a ground set, but would function well.

    How can I make an out of state sell into a cash on barrel head exchange?

    I did a similar $2500 deal with a seller who agreed to ship via Fastenal. I called the store manager at the Fastenal drop off location and he agreed to act as an agent for both buyer and seller. My check was sent Next Day Air and the Fastenal manager held it until the seller dropped off the...

    Taking a poll of those interested in a 10EE Follow Rest casting.

    FWIW: I've been fooling around with this follower rest concept drawing for a few years. It's based on measurements taken from my 1941 round dial, a pair of 10EE steady rest jaws and scaling & sketching several internet photos of the square dial follower rest. Understand that I have never seen...

    Re-machine surface on a 5 feet square Acorn welding table, Greenville, SC.

    Many years ago, I visited a plant that manufactured a logging equipment and the machine frames were huge weldments. At the top of the frame was a 6 foot diameter steel ring, with a 4~5 inch wall thickness. They would mount a large rotary table in the center of the ring and attach a Bridgeport...

    10EE Taper Clamp casting possibility - Martin Model

    My casting arrived (Cincinnati, Ohio) this AM, very well packaged and with drawings. The support post was a surprise, but will be appreciated when I get to the machining. Thanks Gary!

    I'm interested in a follower rest casting for a round dial 10EE.

    Taking a poll of those interested in a 10EE Follow Rest casting.

    Not sure where I obtained this photo depicting 10EE follower rests...perhaps here on PM. As I recall, a much simpler version for the round dial lathe exists, too.

    Miller Welder warranty....

    This is only marginally related, but I have an early Miller Digital Elite welding helmet in which the auto dark lens assembly died; a known issue with the early helmets, according to the welding forums. It was out of warranty, but I had primarily used it during two 40 hour welding classes, so it...
