    Default Monarch 10ee Tracer Lathe

    SO I am a Monarch ADDICT and there is a tracer 10ee near me for sale. I was wondering what I would need to replace or take off in order to convert it back into a normal 10ee if that is even possible. From the looks of it, I think it will only take getting a new cross slide and removing all the tracing stuff but I have not seen it in person.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    If it is "near" you should go and see it in person.

    Before you go... there is information around on Monarch's various tracers. They were not at the "simple" end of the class.

    Without some preparation so you know what to look for, you are likely to miss some of the complexity and side-effects as to how much is involved in converting - or (partially) retaining - those features.

    If/as/when a task JUSTIFIED a complex tracer, the odds are it was run hard AT said task, too. Wear may be a more significant issue than average, and it may be concentrated, not evenly distributed.

    Worth a recce?

    2CW - and a Cazeneuve HBX-360-BC that left the factory in France AS a tracer.

    I should live long enough, it may even be again. Just differently. There's "one and a half" used, salvageable, Mimik tracer goods here for adaptation.

    Tracers can do straight tapers, too, y'see.

    Monarch tracers were able to be turned off so thge lathge could be run. Converting back to a EE without a tracer would require the top slide to be replaced and there might need some additional changes. If the tracer is functional, it might be cool to have as it would allow to do repeat work or complicated contour work.

    I’ll have to go take a look in person. One thing I did consider was the potential for a lot of wear. I’d probably just go an take all the tracer parts off since I would t really need the tracer system.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Whomever converted my HBX-360-BC didn't alter the top slide, which has mounts for two slides or compounds, the usual at front, a twin at the rear where the powered tracer slide lived.

    On my one, they even left the hydraulic pumps, hydraulic line, and the fluid reservoirs still charged with hydraulic fluid.

    The slide -which carried the stylus - and its template mount were all they removed.

    So as has been mentioned, mods would be optional.


    PS: I can't PM you to explain that negative response as my PM-PM is disabled over the tiny capacity and you don't have PM's email active.

    I have enabled my E-mail. I also have some questions about a 10ee drive I have right now that you can answer

    My first square dial was a tracer from United Airlines. I pulled off the tracer and did the conversion, but that was mid-90's. As I recall, it needed these parts: a cross slide and a base for the compound. I don't recall if the cross slide screw from the tracer also needed to be replaced, but it might.
