    Newall NMS30 setup question

    I just put one of these on a lathe. The unit has no on/off switch, but rather in the setup mode you can select how many minutes that it will turn off. I can't get mine to turn off, no matter how many minutes I input. All other setup features worked as expected. Anyone have one of these and can...

    Covid and shop teaching?

    How are people handling this issue? We have suspended the teaching in the physics department for the foreseeable future. I'm trying to imagine how it might be done while maintaining social distance. Anyone else at a college/university or tech school dealing with this?

    Old Pratt & Whitney lathe in VT, on fb

    I came across this today. Price is right. I wonder if the small compound sitting on the ways near the chuck is included. Lets hope it does not go for "legs" as the seller suggests.

    I have been using my S&B 1024 for awhile now and I have developed some slippage with the Coventry Tool Matrix drive. It has tow speeds and I have mainly used the low range.
