    Default Cross Slide "interchange" on 10ee

    Question: Time to go shopping.
    Will a round dial 10ee cross slide adapt to a square dial machine?

    Call or email Monarch and see. My guess it COULD even be the same part number.

    There were AFAIK- three if not four different top slides. Two lengths, if not three, and one with a riased and dovetailed section at the rear for mounting "back" tooling.

    And then there were tracers and compounded tracers, slides with provision to carry power to the compound.. etc.?

    So maybe more-yet. But the "basic" ones should be the same?

    The machine in question came into my possession with a bed turret and plain rear rest: logically then it would have had the long cross slide with rear dovetail. That said the serial on the bed turret doesn't match the machine

    Yes. A round dial cross slide will fit a square dial saddle. But there are two kinds of round dial cross slides: 9" and 13". The 13" are the same length as the cross slide used on the square dial, but they are not common. Each size uses a different rear chip shield. Round dial cross slides are shorter in height than square dial, so their chip shields are also shorter, and if you have multiple 10EE's you wont be able to interchange tooling as easily if you install a round dial cross slide on a square dial machine or vice versa (round dial and square dial machines have the same height from top of compound to lathe center line, even though square dial machines have ½" additional turning capacity).

    Down to one 10ee, starting to think it's time to simply have Lodi Iron pour something. Would be nice to have options for a rear tool post. Thanks everyone you've all been most helpful!

    Too small to bother with a mold for a one-off pour. Just mill it from Durabar.

    Or in my case, ever I get a round-tuit, some of that 980 lbs Avoir of former G&L hor-bore rectangular bedway Igor cut and shipped to me, "a while ago" already.

    Just this morning got it out from under the four mounted tires for the XJ8-L and a buncha boxes of 10EE part-out spares.

    Next-up, putting the hook to it to get it off the pallet!

    Two bars @ 25", two bars @ 36" of 8" X 3" good old American Iron runs right close to 8 lbs per lineal inch? Lightest bar is around 200 Avoir., and Paul Bunyan I was never!
