    FS - starrett micrometer set 0-1 to 5-6 with case

    Weelllll, that's a pretty harsh critique but I won't disagree with your opinions as they are just that. One text I did not respond to and you sent me an email as I was going to bed last night. What's that even supposed to mean?

    shim material for tiny work holding in collet

    Use a larger collet (not much) and face a piece of stock then drill and ream it. Cut a slit or two in it with a bandsaw. Reinstall it then go about your business. That or if possible, use .125” stock and turn it down for each part. Really depends on how many you need to make. If you need to make...

    Is there a colorant (dye) for lube oils?

    A quick google search shows a multitude of available dyes for all sorts of lubricants for almost every application. The brands I bothered to click the link for were all RFQ so I can’t give you any clue as to where to get it from but yes, you can get dyes for the oil in your machine. Google it...

    South Bend 13 chip guard bolt size?

    They’re just called partial profile inserts, you can find them just as that. I believe (don’t quote me) the standard range is 8-48 TPI? But you can get them in other ranges as well. Just make sure to get the correct hand insert. Probably an 16ER-AG60 size insert. These are somewhat pricey and...

    South Bend 13 chip guard bolt size?

    How old is your machine? I’ve got a 13” CL8145B that is definitely 5/16-18 bolts on the chip guard. I’d try running a tap to clean out the holes. The likelihood of them being 5/16-20 is negligible. Edit: I see the age now. Our machines aren’t that different in age (mine is a tad older). Edit...

    South Bend 10L making reversing gears

    It's a common issue that import cutters are labeled in reverse. Granted this isn't always the case but it isn't uncommon for #1 to actually be a #8 and so on. USA brands shouldn't have that problem.

    10" gearbox

    You mean the bore that holds the shaft for the idler gear, correct? If so, it came in two ways. One way had a thrust bearing the gear rode on and the other is like you have, the shaft itself spins whilst the gear is keyed. In short there isn’t an “easy” fix. It depends on what tooling you have...
