    Cleaned the headstock oil filter. The round cylinder is a magnet and goes inside the tube with the steel rings. Then I dove headfirst into the coolant sump and pump.

    According to this chart from Tony's lathes.uk website it was made in either 1962, 1963 or 1964.
    1964 being the last year of production.Holbrook Serial Numbers

    I think you will find Tony`s chart is incomplete, Holbrook lathes were made until 1977 according to Dick Anderson, and the "C" models until the late 60`s.
    A post Herbert model was also produced in the 80`s I believe - 10b

    MMMMM? interesting, I don't remember being told that when I spoke to Dick Anderson at Rugby, …………. BOTH as that was nigh 25 years ago, it's more than likely I've forgotten.

    Nice guy Dick, he and his wife made me and my friend very welcome.

    Limy Sami, it sounds like you don`t believe me?: Well it was Dick who designed the 10b, and he had it made in India I understand.

    The 10 B Lathes shown in the Model Engineer link look very much like the lathes that were sold in Canada as the Inchametric 10 and the Enterprise 10 that were made in India.
    My father bought one in 1978 that I still have and I have also seen some a little newer that were not nearly as well finished.
    The one I have is not a bad lathe for the money that was paid for it about 1/2 the price of a new South Bend or a Standard Modern at the time and had certain advantages over those with the Metric threading and extra weight but the finish at least on mine and more so on those a couple of years newer were not up to the same fit and finish as I would expect from an original Holbrook .
    Mine came in the same green colour as this one from the ME. link
    https://www.model-engineer.co.uk/sit...421/787415.jpg
    Mine was supposedly built by or for the Kirloskar co. that supplied larger machines that have been described in other threads on this forum.
    Here is one of them
    Mysore Kirloskar Enterprise 400 Lathe - Documentation Request
    I also have a larger machine of theirs badged as a Western that later evolved into the Enterprise 1340 .
    Here is a thread I found about an older variant .
    Enterprise Lathe

    I can’t post a picture of my 10” machine right now but here is a link to one in another thread
    Enterprise 10 Mysore Kirloskar questions
    Mine has 2 doors on the end one to cover the gear train at the front and the other to cover the 2 step motor & counter shaft pulleys and V Belt.
    The newer ones had a larger one piece door to cover both and if i recall made from fiberglass or plastic instead of steel.
    Regards,
    Jim

    Rusty- that’s a beautiful piece of machinery.
    Good man to give it 50 more years of life.

    But that definitely looks like one of the cases where you spend two days reassembling a particular section, glance at the bench and say $&%#!!!
    -where does that piece go?
    - and how do I get back with minimal rework?

    Keep it up, I love these threads

    Put new bearings in the coolant pump and got it back in the cleaned up sump.
    The stud for the indexing turret tool post has a flange on the bottom and is secured by pins and screws from underneath. To remove it you have to disassemble the compound.
    I made a new two piece flange and stud so different size studs could be swapped out for different tool posts without taking the compound apart.
    The turret tool post is cool but using hss tooling and having to constantly shim to get center height is a pain.dscn0267.jpgdscn0255.jpgdscn0256.jpgdscn0265.jpgdscn0266.jpg

    If I were you, I would try to get my hands on a Tripan 211 tool post, they were an option from the factory, and the bonus is you can make your own holders.

    I was offered one but the seller wanted way more than I was willing to pay.
    They're not too common in the US though.

    Hi Rusty
    Nice job with the tool post that was a pia shiming tools. That sure makes the lathe ueser friendly.Heres a lathe that I will take to my man cave it’s the oldest but it will do it has the big gap and long engouh to do my hobby stuff. It has a boring grinding attachment that looks like it was all was on the machine with a chuck fixture came out of a transit garage.

    I forget exactly. It was around 5 or 6 hundred US dollars.
    I think you can buy them new through the Anglo-Swiss tools website in the UK.

    What make of lathe is that ?
    I'd like to see the man cave that can house a lathe that size.
    I guess "downsizing" means different things to different people.

    5-6 hundred bucks, he must be on one, no chance. He will have that along time.
    I know about Anglo-Swiss thanks-no thank you! At those prices stick to Aloris or Multifix a

    Cleaning up the steady and follower rests I noticed that one of the bolts on the follower was modified from an off the shelf bolt and that the thread is 3/8-20.
    As are the threaded holes in the saddle that the follower bolts to.
    I want to get a tap to clean out those threaded holes. Am I correct to assume that what I need is a 55 degree BSF 3/8-20 tap and not 60 degree imperial one ?dscn0268.jpg
