    Anyone have a BH9 Troyke rotary table?

    Hey Guys; I have a Troyke table that is missing the table lock. I do have the internal rod that has the tapered end. I need a picture and hopefully some dimensions that would allow me to recreate the screw that locks it. I don’t even know what threads it needs, but the minor diameter is about...

    NMTB40 on Nichols vertical head?

    Hey Guys; I would like to know how to use NMTB40 on my Nichols mill. I am hoping that it is not a lot more than creating a new drawbar. If anyone has pictures or descriptions of the process and would post them; it would make me very happy. I would prefer to just find a 3/8” 4NS Collet, but I do...

    Nichols mill lubricants

    Hey Guys, I didn't know where else to place this inquiry... I don't even know the age.

    help needed with mill/vfd

    Hey guys, I bought an older Nichols Mill, at a reasonable cost, even though I couldn't see it run. The guy I bought it from said he never tried it, but was told it ran. The cap at the motor junction had no cover, and the wires had been cut, so I was apprehensive of course. Since I don't have 3~...

    Elliott shaper in Cleveland

    I saw this shaper (along with a hori. mill and grinder) on GovDeals, and thought I'd pass it along.

    looking for 2-1/2-6 backplate

    Hey Guys, I'm in need of a 2-1/2 6TPI back-plate for an old Rockford 14" lathe. Minimum diameter must be 5", but a little more wouldn't hurt a thing. Anyone with a junked Hendey 16", I think they had the same threads on the spindle... Thanks for looking if you think you might have something. Bob
