    Is there any other evidence on your behalf?

    Years ago I built a wood lathe. The cost of a cone pulley was out of the question for me at that time.
    I decided I would make one. Much easier than I originally thought. I glued up 5 pieces of maple rough sawed to dimension. Glued and screwed them together after boring the centers to 15/16" . The fifth piece was the hub which I filed a slot and bored for set screw. I pushed the rough pulley onto the spindle which I had bought as a replacement part. I hooked up a motor and a belt to the spindle. I managed to turn the largest pulley to dimension and cut the Vee with parting tool and skew chisel.
    Now I used the pulley I just cut and the motor with a link belt to easily finish the rest of the 4 cone pulley. I still use the same maple cone pulley today. At the time I had no knowledge or metal working tools. Lots of wood components were made when needed.

    bradjacob,
    Since this thread is strictly about South Bend Lathes can it be moved to the South Bend Forum?

    And look, really if the guy comes on here with a crappy machine or a new machine and in the first few sentences includes something to the likes of "I don't know anything about machining but am looking to learn", he's probably not going to be engaging in conversation on most topics here, not for a while I bet. It's not his fault, it's just the way it is.
    And some newbie questions might require thoughtful and interesting answers that might benefit old hands. And some old hands might ask simple questions that are of little interest.
    Not looking to get in a pissing contest over a subject that's a matter of opinion.
    Just sayin best not to generalize and dis a guy just because one finds his tooling doesn't measure up to some arbitrary standard.
    I learn the most when i listen first then decide..... Cheers.........Bob

    I do small production runs on my Atlas
    GHASP!
    Using a Siemens 2hp VFD duty motor with a Dial VFD(never any belt changes)
    making the same simple cosmetic part with low tolerances is quite lucrative. Sure I'd love a CNC lathe with live tooling but I just blew my wad on a VMC.

    I have 2 at work now, I can't stand them.

    Yeah, these machines are beyond fixing. Ones a small clausing the other a larger leblonde, far beyond repair, far from replacement lol.
