    One VFD for more than one machine...

    Long story short, I am moving overseas and taking my equipment with me. I've been using my RPC to power a panel that is wired to all of my equipment. As it turns out, that isn't a viable option due to the starting surge I have when I start it, so I am looking at a short term solution. So my...

    WTB: Axelson Lathe...

    I've been scouring the internet for the better part of a year and need a bit of help. I would like to buy an Axelson Lathe. I would prefer it to be less than $5000 in price w/shipping included and in the 14-16 x 54-78 range. Any leads would be greatly appreciated. [email protected]

    Axelson 14" Older Style...

    So, I have been looking for a new lathe for a bit now, honestly because of COVID ruining my day and letting a Monarch slip through my hands and into a shredder after I off loaded my other one. Anyways, I ran across this little one and started doing some research. I think this is one of the...

    Marvel Draw Cut #2

    First off, I am actually impressed by this little hacksaw. I cut quite a bit of steel today with no problems, for the most part. It was jumping a bit and it seemed like the clack that was there was worse than usual. Well, I did start looking at my machine a bit more today. I opened up the gear...

    Monarch 16CY x 54" Going To Scrap...

    I have it on good authority that a lathe located in Ambridge, PA is going to scrap in the morning. It is located at a local car repair shop that has been storing it for the owner. Long story short, it needs moved tomorrow and there is no way I can make it. I was originally going to head out...

    Versa-mil Style Machine Upgrade...

    Alright, recently I bought a cheapish Versa-mil style machine. It's actually an LC-2, or known as a Lathe Converter. Now, don't get me wrong, I use Brian's Versa-mil in the Navy quite often, when needed and it is a great little unit, but for my small shop and the stuff I would use it for, I...

    Hoefer 26" for a Royersford 21"...

    Well, I just went and bought a Hoefer 26" Sliding Head Camelback yesterday. I have typically used my Royersford for drilling holes and running a trapping head. Now, I have heard that a good radial drill press, which in my opinion is the grandson of these things, can do stuff that would blow your...

    Punching/Stamping Advice...

    I am looking at making a small run on a piece that requires me to manufacture a part that is very close to the scrap drawing included in this post. I honestly have looked high and low for how to do this and I honestly have low experience in this part of metal working. The other pieces will be...

    Monarch Tailstock Lever...

    Just out of curiosity, I saw someone asking for a 18" lathe tailstock handle like the one in the picture. Now in all honesty, how come they didn't add them to a few of the smaller lathes. For instance, my 16CW could use one. That tailstock is a bear to move and having a crank handle would be so...

    Bridgeport M Head Pull Gear Pulley...

    I just ran across something for the first time today. A guy and I were having a discussion on another forum about going to fast for cutting holes with hole saws and he dropped this little nugget. He said, one of his drill presses came with a Pull Gear pulley and I thought to myself, that is...

    Bridgeport M Head Weird Setup...

    Just curious, I saw this on a search today while looking for something completely different. Does anyone have any guesses on what is going on with this M Head? I'm actually curious if this is a power feed and if anyone has more info on it. Sent from my S61 using Tapatalk

    Spindle Speeder...

    I currently have a Monarch 16CY x 54" that I use quite frequently. Unfortunately, it's max spindle speed is around 700, which works well for almost everything I do. I do find on occasion that I need a little more speed for some random 1/2" or smaller stuff that I do, but as much as I want to get...

    Wanted: Bridgeport M Head Motor...

    Just curious, I am looking for a Bridgeport M Head 3 phase motor. Does anyone have an extra laying around or have a lead on one? Thank you in advance. Mike Sent from my S61 using Tapatalk

    WTB: Master Machine Head LC3 or Smaller

    I am looking for a Master Machine Head to mount on my lathe. I see a few of them for sale on the bay, but those are all LC5s and up, from what I can tell, and quite a bit larger than I need. I also noticed an LC3 sold up here in Holyoke, MA during an auction back in 2017, so I know there out...

    Monarch CW 16 x 30...

    Well, I am now the owner of this Monarch. It actually didn't look that bad from the pictures, so I drove up to take a look at it in person and it looks even better in person. It's in really good shape for it's age. They even let me look inside the headstock, at the gearing, pretty johnoder's...

    Van Norman Knee Surgery Today...

    Well, I don't think my shift tumbler was disengaging properly and I went to roll the front selector. I experienced a load of resistance and stopped and took the nuetral lever a bit further than the stop. It then shifted fine. I then couldn't get it to go back in gear without messing about work...

    Bridgeport J Head on a VN22L...

    Long story short, I've read and read and can't seem to find this answer anywhere. Is it possible to put a J Head on a VN overarm or is that asking too much of that bar? I do have an M Head that I have yet to mount on it. Oh, uses, I am looking to downsize my shop and I want to get rid of my...

    Wanted: Bridgeport M-Head Parts (Trade or Sale)...

    I have a single phase Bridgeport M Head that I would like to swap for a 3 Phase version. I am willing to swap the motor for a 3 Phase version or just swap the whole head. This is a 2MT spindle. I am also looking for an overarm adapter to for it to my VN 22L, but not necessarily needed. Might be...

    P&w r6...

    I just picked up one of these and probably overpaid, whatever. It came with an assortment of things and it also came with a manual and parts list, which I will be scanning in and dropping on vintage machinery. Anyways, this is definitely uncharted waters for me, seen as how I have never...

    Marathon Motor Works...

    So, I decided to stop in and take a look around while in Nashville, TN. I took some pictures and let me say, although they may never see work again, they are in great shape and will be around awhile for people to look at. I do fear some don't see the beauty we do.
