    Restoration of 10EE Round Dial (Dev Diary)

    So it should be noted at this point that not only am I restoring this machine, I am also drawing it up piece by piece in CAD including (admittedly poor quality, but touched up) 3D scans of the casings. Some of the early parts are a bit off at the moment as I realized my dial calipers were off by...

    Restoration of 10EE Round Dial (Dev Diary)

    Chapter: The GearBox So I decided to start with the biggest, baddest part on here because I'm a madman. Pay no mind to the assembly that was totally removed before this point. Removed the four bolts holding in the gearbox and ran into an issue with a spindle on the side preventing it from...

    Restoration of 10EE Round Dial (Dev Diary)

    The next parts to come out were the speed selector knob and backgear lever... and the oil pump. I removed the gear assembly and attempted to take it apart. Unfortunately, someone had never encountered a tapered pin before and wound up hammering the wrong side to get it out and now the pin is...

    Restoration of 10EE Round Dial (Dev Diary)

    Let me tell you something about this rheostat... it was filthy. Covered in years of grease, grime, and dust that had all hardened like concrete. I cracked this thing open and gave it a good cleaning as best I could. Before And after. It was recommended to use Mothers Mag & Aluminum Polish...

    Restoration of 10EE Round Dial (Dev Diary)

    The next step was to remove the electronics box. It wasn't really held in by much, just a couple of pins in a hinge. I tried to avoid clipping wires, but that wound up being what needed to happen as the wires disappeared into a conduit. I have pretty much set this aside at this point and havent...

    Restoration of 10EE Round Dial (Dev Diary)

    So once it was in the garage, I started looking over it and getting a plan together for the restoration. I originally planned on tearing the whole thing down at one time and then painting and rebuilding it as a whole. I quickly realized that I didnt have the room to do that. I pulled off all the...

    Restoration of 10EE Round Dial (Dev Diary)

    Motor-Generator Style MFGR's No - 12845 Build Date 12-1941 I had it for about 3 weeks before it was pointed out that it was built right at the start of WW2

    Restoration of 10EE Round Dial (Dev Diary)

    They actually arent that hard to find, its just that they are all on the far side of Minneapolis, lol. Ive had to pass on like 10 of them that were in fantastic condition for a good price and I just dont have the time or ability to go that far just to check it.

    Restoration of 10EE Round Dial (Dev Diary)

    On initial inspection, it seems to be all there, at least the main components. The motor half of the MG unit had a little surprise that I will mention later 😅 I actually did remove the circuit board by the point I started filming the teardown. As of right now, I'm retelling the process so far...

    Restoration of 10EE Round Dial (Dev Diary)

    Getting it home. So this popped up on Facebook Marketplace about 80 miles from my house. I decided to jump on it as it was for a good price and (more importantly) was close by. I do not have a truck or anything that can pull a trailer, so I had to rent the truck and the trailer as well as those...

    Restoration of 10EE Round Dial (Dev Diary)

    I got it for $1400 as it is, cost me an additional $200 to get it to my house. It has like 6 boxes of parts that are just loose, but I think a cross slide is in there somewhere. There are too many parts for me to have done a full inventory, so I'm inventorying as I rebuild. As for that top...

    Restoration of 10EE Round Dial (Dev Diary)

    That picture was taken in Fargo, ND. I honestly never noticed the NASA logo.

    Restoration of 10EE Round Dial (Dev Diary)

    So I bought this 1941 Monarch 10EE back in like May and have been telling myself that I was going to make a series of YouTube videos about the adventure. I have since decided to document the restoration here. This thing is in pretty rough shape; the lower cover is cracked in half and the...

    10ee Single Phase Conversion Help

    It is the coolant pump. I can't see any tags, but I'm also elbow deep in degreaser atm. Cleaning up some of the smaller parts while I wait on my hoist to get the motors out. I might be able to figure it out if it was just converted and then they scratched out the plate. I'm not great with...

    10ee Single Phase Conversion Help

    Upon some closer inspection, the top conduit has two wires that go directly into the motor generator

    10ee Single Phase Conversion Help

    I'm pretty sure those three wires go to the oil pump. They follow a conduit up to a jury rigged breaker panel(I think) and then go around into the oil pump

    10ee Single Phase Conversion Help

    Pull start electric lathe... I like it, lol. I've seen many of the links, my problem is that the ID plate on my Motor Generator unit has some of the numbers essentially scribbled out including the alternate voltage and the phase and frankly, I am not experienced enough to figure out what it is...

    10ee Single Phase Conversion Help

    I recently bought a 1941 Motor Generator 10EE Lathe. I am in the middle of restoring it but have no access to 3 phase power, so I'm trying to get it running on single phase. I will post a picture of the AC motor plate when I get home, but the 240v is covered in stamps and is unreadable and the...
