Default Major Rebuilds, Repairs, & Info Per Manufacture
This will be a "sticky" and alphabetized per manufacture.

I will edit as we go. You post a link to a good rebuild or repair thread, or a thread with solid useful info, like serial data bases, operations and such. When I get to it, I'll add it the list. Then I may delete your post to try and keep the sticky as clean as possible, but we'll see how it goes.

I'll add in the manufactures as we go also if you don't see the particular one up here.

We are looking for American, Industrial, and not specifically covered in another section.

I do have a life, so be patient with me.


American Tool Works:
Our new American pacemaker lathe - Ongoing cleanup.


Axelson:



Brown & Sharpe:



Cincinnati:
Cincinnati #3 mill restoring


Gorton:



Greaves Klusman
20" Heavy Greaves Klusman

Kearney & Trecker:
Kearney Trecker serial number registry

K&T 2HL Universal

Sidney:
1943 Sidney 16x54 Refurb

Van Norman:
grease and oil in the VN12? (No. 6, 12 & 16 Cutter-Head and Gearbox Lube)

You can get help. Lots of it.

- Only a privileged user can roll changes into place.

However..

- Individuals who care - an ad hoc flexible grouping of volunteers - who cannot effect a change can nonetheless IDENTIFY candidates for your review and action. Simplest is a note with links. No need to duplicate what is already in the PM DB.

Next-up might be existing text with suggested alternative text alongside.

- A NEW thread done with cut and paste might make a better sticky, the sources PLURAL left as they were, where they were. Many a 'how to" needs snippets from more than one source, often spread out over time.

- stickeys can, and should, be heirarchical "tree' branches. Note, for example Monarch forum has so many, all at "top" level, that more than a full screen/page must be scrolled to get past them, and into the active discussion zone.

Conscript a bit of team support effort, your actioning the suggestions vetted won't absorb as many hours of a given day. Task gets done sooner. Might even get done better?

Lots of folks don't wish to "Moderate".. or should not, but can still help lighten a Moderator's load.

Many eyes. Many hands. FEWER "decision makers". Greater the sense of involvement and "ownership" of the benefit derived.

First honor will go to John Oder, and rightfully so. 20" Greaves Klusman:

20" Heavy Greaves Klusman

I'm not sure if I should list manufacture as Greaves Klusman, or Greaves Machine Tool Company.

Maybe The Greaves-Klusman Tool Co/Greaves Machine Tool Company

John could answer that if he has a preference.

I think that is a great choice those machines are interesting, everyone should see that several times. I think its too bad " The Edgar" was not made here.

Shop floor, foreman doing tasking would have said "run it on the Greaves".

Much as tasking to a K&T mill was "run it on the Milwaukee."

I got a long way to go searching through the threads yet. It'll take me some time.

But I found a thread of yours is a real good example. The vertical head thread, I'd like to add it to the B & S if we can get squared away on whatever the issue is with imgur and the pics.

I will get right on that with photos, I also had to set the head up in a Cincinnati cutter grinder to grind the 40taper, it was not done during war production, I will have that by 2035.

Its the weight of that cloud again, it now says I have bad breath!

My preference is what is cast into the head stock.

Greaves Klusman, or short for Greaves Klusman Tool Company

And thank you for your consideration

On Edit:

Error corrected - thanks Bill

A brain is a terrible thing to sit on/ awful!
Hi ! My name is Donie !

I enjoy holding hands, long walks and sunsets.

I like talking to other people and talking to myself.

I read french poetry on street corners, but it makes me sad.

When I get sad, I buy pink balloons.

Let me share my joy and pink balloons with you !

Its nothing just this fellow is trying to force me to post more photos and stories in his failure of a heavy machine forum.
He just blew a gasket, but its not nice.
I really liked posting my adventures in old machinery, but why do it and take the ridicule from "you know who"
They cant blame their problems on me.

This is what is posted,

people regard us, Eastern Europeans, as coarse and difficult to deal with because we'll say what we really think (most of the time anyway)

and this thread would benefit a lot from that, else it is nothing more than some "female passive aggressive crap" disguised as just some regular spam

you have a problem - you say what it is and who you have the problem with, else you're leaving people absolutely clueless about something going on behind the scenes which solves nothing and creates pointless drama

Yah yuh yuh,

Now, the moderators insult the forum members! Its not my fault TGS is not a machinist!

So, this is what happens if you question him,
