    This lathe was a 3 phase originally and a single phase added later. Going to discard the original electrical box and probably install a different single phase motor as this one has no identification on it. I would like to know from Hendeyman what rpm it originally was equipped with. img_1806.jpg[ATTACH]260650

    No mention of size. Too small images suggest a tie bar cone head with Hendey drive which is the geared countershaft on the back

    Original motor was 1200 RPM and the following HP per size

    12" had 1 HP
    14" had 1 1/2
    16" had 2
    18" had 2
    20" had 3

    34695 from about 1942

    AMAZING - a Hendey with a reversing starter for motor

    Here are both manual scans

    Sometime in its history someone thought it was a good idea to make the cone head a bee belt driveimg_1808.jpg

    Why, does it buzz or something? Did you get it from beekeepers who missed the noise when working in the shop?

    Disappointments adding up, took the lever mechanism off and clutch cover off, no clutch parts. Someone put a pulley on shaft and it must have been slipping so in their wisdom that tack welded pulley hub to shaft.img_1813.jpgimg_1815.jpg

    stonehaven:

    Hendey lathe no. 34695, a No.1 x 30 High Speed model. was ordered on May 1, 1942 and was one of eighteen identical lathes that were
    ordered. It was scheduled for completion during the middle of March 1943. The original owner was the Cardanic Corporation, no city or
    state was listed. The electric motor was a Frame 225, 3HP, 1800RPM, 440Volts, 60Cycles, 3PH. The Spindle Speed was 2000RPM. There are
    very few Patterns, Castings or Repair Parts left in inventory for this lathe. All of the original drawings are still in the files, so
    parts can be made if required. The selection of gears shown in the Cabinet Leg will determine what feed Rates you can produce.

    Thanks for the information Hendeyman, I am curious if a conehead from a 12 inch would fit this lathe as someone has cut vee grooves in this lathes conehead to run vee belts. Also is there a chart to tell which gears go on the quadrant for a particular feed.
