    Need to make a new 10L cross feed bushing

    Took a little trial and error to get the length perfect, but I think I've got a workable repair.

    Need to make a new 10L cross feed bushing

    I recently picked up a 10L to replace my 9A but it's got a couple of problems I have to correct first, the main one being a broken cross feed bushing. I feel pretty confident I can make a replacement for it, but the way it broke I don't feel great that I've got a good overall dimension on the...

    WTS Dumore Versa-Mil No.1

    I'm gonna take a total shot in the dark and say $500, but I'm not married to that number. If I wasn't already into cleaning up a couple of South Bends at the same time and running out of room It'd probably keep taking up space!

    WTS Dumore Versa-Mil No.1

    Dumore Versa-Mil No. 1 with feed table and universal head. It's been torn down cleaned and repainted but still needs new seals and some reassembly. No idea what fair pricing would even be, can't really find any good references outside of Ebay / new pricing(which is nuts). It's just been...

    South Bend 9a QCGB binding issue

    That's totally valid. There were other parts damaged in the fall, but they've either been repaired or replaced at this point. As far as I can tell, with the exception of the tumbler handles the rest of the QCGB is okay. None of the gears have visible damage and the shafts are running true.

    South Bend 9a QCGB binding issue

    Yes, without the tumblers engaged everything spins fine. The large and small gears as well as the tumbler shaft also turn freely. Yes. Basically I can creep up on the tumbler pin hole and there will be a point ( maybe 1/2 way over the pin hole) where I'll get good mesh and backlash and...

    South Bend 9a QCGB binding issue

    I'm in the process of cleaning up a 9a that looked like it set in the back of an auto shop of about 50 years. When I bought it, I could tell it had likely been tipped at one point because the heads were broken off of both gear box levers. I wasn't super concerned because it was VERY cheap and...

    SB 10K Countershaft Drive Oilers

    I'm not sure of the exact year, but the estimated year of production chart lists 1952-1955 for my serial number 2286KAR7.

    SB 10K Countershaft Drive Oilers

    Thanks for the suggestion. I ended up getting them cleared out without having to pull the oilers after all. Finally close to having this thing running!

    SB 10K Countershaft Drive Oilers

    Thanks very much for the information. I ended up dripping some solvent into the pathways from the top and eventually loosened the material enough that I could push a piano wire through and dislodge what was in there without removing the oilers. Both of them had wicks that were fouled with...

    SB 10K Countershaft Drive Oilers

    I've got a 10k (2286KAR7) I picked up a couple years ago and I've been slowly getting it back into working order, cleaning rewicking and so on. I've largely finished everything except the drive unit and I ran into an issue. At some point in the past I think a previous own started greasing the...
