    JJ Smith Belt sander issue.

    JJ Smith is an English company in Liverpool, England I have contacted them about a machine of theirs from the 1940s. They had no information available on it. Since your machine is a later model machine, you may have better luck. Easiest way to contact them is by email

    Can anyone help me identify this lathe?

    1942 Monarch [QUOTE Harlech As others have said: go to Monarch to get details of the lathe and get a manual, if you don’t already have one. All I can add, great looking lathe. From the photograph, everything appears to be there. Hopefully, it runs as good as it looks Jim Murphy

    New to the Monarch family. 10ee

    Zamboni Nice carriage hand wheel from Monarch. Question: from the photo of the handwhweel, it appears there is no clutch, maybe it’s behind the hand wheel. I’m asking because I’m missing the clutch on my 1939 Monarch 10ee Sundstrand. It is my understanding some Monarchs came without hand wheel...

    Full tear down and Rebuild of a 10EE Round Dial

    Grant Great job on this rebuild thread. I’ve been rereading it several times. Cal gave you a good suggestion with getting a thread cleaning set instead of taps. I use my set daily. I want to suggest when using, keep in mind they are softer metal and so you can’t torque them like a tap or...
