    10ee square-dial end gear bearing replacement

    I just replaced the end-gear (idler?) bearings on my 1946 square-dial 10ee, and I thought I’d post what I did to help anyone needing to do the same. I’ve read about other solutions for replacing the hard-to-source original bearings, like cutting your own snap-ring grooves, but my solution was...

    Fixing square-dial 10ee oil leaking past EE-2888

    Hi all, I have the spindle out of my 1946 10ee in order to apply sealant under the EE-2888 bushing and reinstall. Oil was leaking pretty quickly from the left bearing compartment to the center one. Many thanks to everyone who posted info here on spindle removal. I attached a photo of part of...

    10ee tachometer repair

    Hi all, I have a 1946 square-dial with a non-functional tach. I removed it and think I found why it isn't working, but I'm not sure of the exact problem or what to do about it. The spindle on which the needle mounts has a pin-shaped end to the rear that pivots against something inside a small...

    Wilton-Strands drill press modifications for Quadrill

    I recently finished cleaning up a Wilton-Strands 25" drill press I picked up over a decade ago. I built a converter box back then to run it, with a transformer, VFD, and filter so I could run the 480V 3-phase motor on 230V single-phase, but after that the project got put on the back burner. I...

    Wanted: Wilton-Strands 25" drill press feed selector plate (or picture to make one)

    Wanted: Wilton-Strands 25" drill press feed selector plate (or picture to make one) Hi all, I'm refurbishing a Wilton-Strands 24514 25" gear-head drill press. The plate showing the power down-feed rates is unreadable and somewhat mangled, and I'd like to replace it. I haven't called Wilton...

    Anyone use A.B. Tools Shear Hog *left-hand* inserts?

    I didn't even know they made a left-hand version! I accidentally bought 20 NIB inserts, labeled "ADEH 432 LH C209", without noticing the "LH". Back of the packs says "ADEH 432 LEFT Z9". I'd be happy to trade them two-for-one for right-hand ADEH-431 or 432 inserts, or sell them for half of...

    Scleroscope parts source?

    Does anyone know a source for Shore scleroscope parts? At the moment I'm wondering about hammers (the weights that are dropped) for the older scleroscopes with the pneumatic squeeze bulbs. I have a friend who is planning to make his own hammer because he has a nice early tester equipped with a...

    Resurfacing a big drill press table

    I want to resurface a 25" x 18" drill press table that has some heavy wear around the tee-slots. About 0.060-0.075" will have to come off to get below the wear. I would prefer a little surface texture like a large-diameter face mill leaves to a perfectly smooth finish. What would be the best...

    Geared head drill press lubrication

    For the gear box, the Operating Instructions for a 25" Wilton-Strands drill press I am going over says: "Use fairly viscous gear grease having high pressure and clinging qualities. Lubriplate or its equivalent is excellent". Lubriplate seems to make about fifty different flavors of grease...

    Spindle nose protector balance

    I use a sleeve-type 5C collet closer with a handwheel drawtube on my 10ee. I recently acquired a spindle nose protector that consists of a ring with a tapered bore that fits over the locating taper on the spindle face. It is mounted with just one of the three cam-lock pins and doesn't have...

    Flexible way cover material for older Hurco?

    I am doing a control retrofit on a KM3 and need to replace the flexible rubber knee way covers. Can anyone suggest a coolant and oil-resistant material type and possibly a vendor? I've looked at McMaster and they have many different sheet materials that *might* be suitable. I don't mind...

    Delta wood/metal bandsaw question

    I have the older 14" model with the lever on the gearbox to disengage it when driving the lower wheel directly for high speed. The seal on the gearbox input shaft had started leaking and the saw made a big puddle. I replaced the seal but now I'm wondering about the correct fill level. It may...

    10ee with hydraulic tracer

    This auction listing is for a 10ee with a hydraulic tracer. I have never seen one quite like this. What is different about the spindle and headstock cover? Does anyone know if this is related to the tracer setup or if it is some other option?

    Who made this lathe chuck?

    I picked up a new D1-3 mount chuck and have not been able to ID the manufacturer. It is a 3-jaw with 2-piece reversible jaws. It appears to be pretty high quality but I have not mounted it yet so I don't know about runout or balance. The markings are: PUUr-6 1/4 D3SD NoXXX (serial number) 70...

    How to fix etched lines on a glass vernier?

    Hello folks. I have a Tumico vernier height gage that has the scale lines and numbers etched into glass and then somehow inked or painted. The ink has turned to powder from age and mostly fallen out making it hard to read. Has anyone ever fixed a similar problem? Any suggestions for ink...
