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
I have been following along with your post since the beginning, very helpful to me since I have a 1939 round dial I’ve been working on for a few years. I redid all my chrome knobs and the Art Deco bars on the removable covers. A couple of chrome knobs I couldn’t get out so I will use...
Congratulations on your Sundstrand acquisition. Welcome to the current Monarch Sundstrand club. Seems like there are at least a dozen of us with this model and our numbers have just grown by one. There are many threads on the Sundstrand lathe, just type in “Monarch 10ee Sundstrand”.
Nice write up so far. Regarding the half nuts and feed reverse plunger: I pulled the half nuts and plunger very carefully, clean off the the dirt and grease, use a file carefully on any rough edges where any two parts fit together, spread oil liberally before reassembly. Put back...
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
Now that your Monarch Sundstrand is up and running, how is it doing? You mentioned you have an MG. Is the Sundstrand noisy since you rebuilt it?
Can you show a photo of the overall machine. I have a 1939 Monarch 10ee.
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...
I am looking for a few items for my Monarch 10ee, including the following:
“Oil” , small round plugs that fit on headstock oil ports
Clutch for carriage hand wheel
Great thread. Happy to see you did this study.
Question: did you get the bijur items # A3889 and B3905 and did they work on your 1940 round dial. I have a 1939 10ee and want to rebuild the pump
I think it’s great you are interested in this field at your age. Good for you. I understand you are a newbie to machine work but possibly you (or one of your friends) are computer literate. If you read about posting here, you can use a service such as photo shop to post your photos...
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...
I’ve thought about it and I will take the Sundstrand. I see your ad on the 24th. Do you remember if the pump worked well?
I have some 5C collets and carbide cutters to trade. I’ll get you the collet sizes and photos of the cutters. I’ll send them on Weds., after I get to...
Awesome job on detailing your work. I wish I had seen your photos with the numbered items years ago. I took apart several vintage woodworking machines and put items in plastic bags and labeled: “bandsaw”, not realizing I’m wasting time trying to determine where exactly on the...
Rakort. Great work so far. I am following closely. Great basement shop. One comment my wife always makes: don’t die and leave me to clean up this mess. How will you remove all these machines when the time comes? I ask because I’ve been to too many estate sales! At 68 years old, my wife is...
