    Default Cincinnati 12-1/2” tray top lathe

    Parting out a tray top lathe because I can’t find the parts I need
    I am trying to dismantle the apron and am stuck at the outer bushing # 28 that shows to come out the front and the feed shaft sleeve # 31 that comes out from the rear on the feed lever
    Only thing I can think of is the two parts are possibly froze to each other unless it is a press fit
    Hitting the sleeve with a plastic hammer is not doing anything
    Has anyone experienced this issue?

    All the drive end parts inside the cover are missing, gearbox also has parts missing
    I’m not sure where the issue started, or where all the parts went
    I’ve already began selling other parts off the machine, total shame but not worth dealing with
    I do however appreciate the reply

    I am interested in the tail stock. How much ? I might be able to help you when I get home to a manual.

    Also interested here! Love to know what you have. If cmike isn't interested in the the entire tail stock or declines purchase, I would be interested in it or specifically the MT2 spindle shaft. Mine has a little scoring in the taper and thus slippage under heavy drilling loads. Also wouldn't mind some spares of other pieces. Sorry I can't help with your issue. I see what you are talking about in the manual but never need to break it down that far. Interested in what you find out.

    Thanks!

    The tail stock is currently listed on eBay at 400.00 buy it now that includes free shipping
    I’ve had a couple of offers but have declined them because this beast weighs in at just under 90 pounds
    I got a quote from Iowa to Idaho and the average was 130.00
    I ended up taking it apart and have it in two flat rate boxes now
    The quill has been modified at the tang area with set screws to keep the drill from spinning and the lock knob has been fitted with a thrust bearing which is a pretty cool idea
    I have had a numerous amount of people contacting me for a wide range of parts, this is why I was asking about how to get the apron tore down
    Turns out, these two parts have a press fit, my arbor press handled that issue

    I left mike a reply, your solution might be what was done to this quill
    Two drilled and tapped holes with set screws at the tang area to keep the drill from spinning

    are you not going to do the bearings. Let me know what the bearing is or the size of the shaft it fits on. I have a couple of bearings that may be the same. They are spindle bearings and on ID has the slot.
    Do you have the tool master parts numbers you need. I have some prints. Did you contact RPT Cincinnati parts company. They call me and wanted to know if I would rebuild a Feed box/

    DT38K, does your TrayTop have the standard drive or the clutch drive?

    I have the saddle and front cross slide, the rear cover was missing
    Sold the compound, and several guys are interested in the taper attachment
    With attachment, that version has a different housing for the front half of the telescope screw, so it would have to be included to work
    I’m thinking I would leave the whole dial, handle, hub assembly and screw together and do a core swap for the buyers unit in exchange for leaving mine complete
    Currently dismantling the head stock
    The spindle had zero run out on the face and less than five tenths on the rim
    I can see one bearing is hand scribed, betting the bearings are tool room high precision

    Hey Mike
    It always good to have an extra hand when needed, thanks
    When I get the spindle out, oil dried and sticky making it tough
    I will get the numbers from the bearings to compare
    It does have all the clutches like your picture
    Plan to hang onto as much as possible
    Cast iron all goes, no Castings left behind

    I got it apart, seems like I ended up pressing it out
    I’m now in the headstock, getting it apart but the dried oil is like thread locker
    The complete taper attachment is ready but the screw and nut are worn and I was hoping to address that before putting up for sale
    The dial hubs are different between the two versions so that will have to be included along with taper attachment drive shaft
