    Hello all. My buddy just purchased a surface grinder for our Gunsmithing shop. He bought it off an auction site. I’m looking for the model number, where to get any Manuel’s and lubrication info. The model number says S709J1C3PA1 and the serial number is 8800-11F2. I can’t seem to find that model...

    Spring steel Tempered or Annealed?

    You can also temper the spring in Notre bluing salts obtainable through Brownells. You’ll need a lead pot or another way to get the salts up to 600 degrees. Leave it in there until the spring blues then take it out and let it cool naturally. That’s how I do my springs. It usually takes 20-30...

    Southbend Nordic 15 help

    Had another Electrician come out and he determined that the first electrician didn’t run large enough wire to cover the load required plus he put a 30 amp breaker in for a piece of equipment that draws 55 amps to start. So we called the first one out to redo what he should have done to start...

    Southbend Nordic 15 help

    Yes it does have a big one that has about 40 wires going to it. The electrician checked the panel but someone had taken the emergency stop button out and tried to repair it with new wire connectors but he used too small of connectors so the wire wasn’t crimped correctly. I’m not sure if that is...

    South bend Nordic Lathe Starter Switch

    I have a Southbend Nordic 15 that I’m trying to find pictures of a complete taper attachment so I can determine if there is anything I need. I know there is no bar and clamp but I also don’t see where the bar could be connected to the taper attachment. All the pictures I’ve seen leads me to...

    Muzzle threading setup with a long headstock?

    Your best bet would be a range rod from Dave Kiff at Pacific Tool & Guage. It is caliber specific, self-centered, bushing tipped to ensure positive seating within the bore. Get the barrel to within 1-2 thousandths to ensure your threads are concentric to the bore. Any strikes of an MB or...

    Troubleshooting lead screw issues

    You are right I checked the machine and it’s a 14x40. This was my first post, so I wasn’t sure if I was in the right topic or not.

Turning and threading are both effected. How hard...
