    Thumbs up My Lathe info

    Hi everyone,

    I am new to the forum and I thought I would start here to learn more about the lathe I bought and hopefully find a manual for it. Also thank you Dave A for calling this morning in regards to my first try at becoming a member (gto4ever) and having my info deleted due to a spam alert.

    Type: Takisawa - imported by WEBB
    Model: TSL 1000 D
    Year: 1979
    Swing over bed: 7" I believe it to be a 14 x 40 lathe
    Distance to centers: 40"
    Chuck: 3 jaw, new 4 jaw and a large face plate
    Tailstock: MT3
    RPM: Don't know as I do not understand how the levers work on the head stock for the gear changes nor what to do with the pile of extra gears that came with the lathe.
    Motor: 5 Hp, 3 phase, two speed motor
    Converter: 10 Hp Rotary Phase converter

    The lathe has a quick change tool post with 5 holders and 1 boring bar
    1 Trava-dial indicator

    I bought the lathe from my old boss who owns a machine shop, it was in his home shop and I paid $2500.00 plus $300 to get it delivered and set in my shop. Like Dave A said above, moving a 2500+ pound piece of equipment is not an easy task. My Birmingham mill was a lot easier to move and set up.

    Default What a Graziano!

    Wow Charles, your SAG 14 looks exactly like mine except yours is 100 times purrrddee-er.

    Wouldn't it be great if we could trade? LOL...

    I love my Graziano, it's a solid, precision machine.

    I've finally managed to get my lathe turning under power today and although I'm only half way through sorting out the issues with it, I thought I'd post a picture in honour of this day.
    It's a 1957 CVA toolroom lathe with taper turning attachment, purchased from Kirt Ray on the PM 'for sale' board. 12 1/2" diameter swing, 30" between centres. Speed range is from 29rpm up to 2220 rpm in 12 steps. Spindle bore is around 35mm and it takes D1-3 chucks.

    Default Smart & Brown 1024 - S/N S7071

    Make: Smart & Brown
    Model: 1024 “Round Head”
    Year: 1963
    Serial Number: S7071
    Swing over bed: 11”
    Cross slide travel: 4½”
    Distance to centers: 24" approx.
    Bed size: 11½” wide x 7” deep
    Spindle Mount: D1-4
    Spindle bore: Bored for C5 collets
    Tailstock: MT2
    RPM: 30-2500 (12 speeds)
    Threading: Standard (requires change gears for metric etc).
    Motor: 2½ HP - 240V, 3Ø

    The lathe came with:
    Bison 3 jaw, Burnerd direct mount 4 jaw, micrometer carriage stop, face plate, fixed & travelling steadies, collet drawbar, Rapid Original Type A tool post (no holders), fitted for coolant – but no pump. Also, Brooks magnetic break on the motor.

    Issues: damaged cross feed, worn cross feed screw, very dirty, missing the wipers on the saddle, missing the back cover over the motor/gear box. Paint job is a bit rough (though not the worst you'll see).

    Default Holbrook C13

    1955 (or so) Holbrook Model C No.13 "High Speed Precision Lathe", currently undergoing a bit of refurbishment and conversion of switchgear to control VFD (no 415v 3-phase in the Shed of Danger)...

    Pic is as collected, it's starting to look a lot tidier with a clean, paint and some TLC

    History - was originally sold to the ARDE (Armament Research and Development Establishment) at Fort Halstead, Kent, England, where the UK's "Nuclear Deterrents" were built in the 1950's - most Holbrooks went into R&D and toolrooms

    13.75" swing, 28" b/c, only 1.25" through spindle though
    Plain-bearing spindle, 5-belt drive to "floating" pulley in roller bearings
    22 - 1500 RPM (3-speed 3HP motor, 2-speed clutch and brake 'box, 8:1 backgear)
    metric and inch threading (swap a change-gear between shafts, flip a lever)
    power feeds with micrometer stops
    double cross-slide (T-slotted) with quick-withdraw for screwcutting (allows use of cross-slide dial for infeed when taper turning, too), 10.5" cross-travel
    taper adaptor (needs a "shoe" made)
    Pratt 10" 4-jaw, 8" 3-jaw, 1/16 - 3/4" collet set and drawbar (Holbrook-specific collets, unfortunately!)
    Dickson QCTP and holders, 5.25" topslide travel

    Footprint approx 7'4" by 3'6", weight a little under 2 tons (4400 pounds)

    Hello everybody !

    My lathe is a CNC automat, Schäublin 180 CCN, but it deserves mentioning because it is a prototype or the first sold. Boss wouldn’t know. Most of the time I spend colouring it green inside by working bronze alloys.

    Being Swiss I want to offer my german and french language knowledge to everyone if there are questions regarding Schäublin, Aciera, Micron, Dixi, Fehlmann, Reiden, Basilisk or other makes.

    Hi,

    My first lathe is a Schaublin SV65 model lathe bed. No way to know exactly how old as no individual identification is visible.Looks to be the same as the 1930's one on the Lathes.Co.UK site. God bless Tony.

    11Kg, 500mm from on end to the other, takes all the gizmos a SV70 takes. 120 euro. Ebay.fr is a cool place for Schaublin hunters. So far I have three compatible headstocks. The ultra splindly but beautiful 1920's one. The correct 1930s one as pictured by Tony. God bless Tony. A SV70 F16 headstock with 16 clear mm thru' the spindle and a 35mm by 1.5mm nose.

    Sadly Schaublin don't sell new screws for the old style toolmakers cross slides and while I was thinking about this I needed to make a aluminium bush to fix my Ford's front oil pump cover.

    One lathe would be lonely if it was on it's own. So I found a Pultra Model P on Ebay.Uk. Perfect WW type lathe with its "War Finish" and bronze Pultra badge missing and painted by a comedian but functionally perfect. 40tpi screws marked off in .0005inch . A few tickles and it has three thou of backlash on each screw and with clean and adjusted ballrace thrust bearings it is just a pleasure to use. Brand new backplate on the way a full 70 years after it was made.

    Used it to bush my oil pump cover. Instantly paid for itself.

    take care

    John

    My new/very old lathe

    Make : Kaerger Germany
    Model : DL3 /1000
    Year : Probably 1938-43 (Kaerger became WMW after the war and the last official shareholder meeting was in -43)
    Swing over bed : 205 mm
    Head and tailstock: MT4
    Weight : 1920 Kg
    RPM : 12 speeds 24-1068
    Longitudinal feeds :0,04 - 6 mm
    Cross feeds : 0,025 - 3,75 mm
    Motor : 4,5 kW/1400 rpm

    The lathe came with:
    Lots of rust and grime plus a smirk from the truckdriver.
    I was able to find a package of old Kaerger literature from a seller in Germany.
    When it arrived it turned out to be a complete owners handbook for the DL 1,2 and 3 plus a rather extensive Kareger catalogue from 1936 listing a wide range of machines and tooling. Pluss some blueprints of the electric diagrams.
    If anyone out there owns a Kaerger let me know.
    I need all the help I can get restoring the beast, and i have all the literature scanned and ready for dispatch...

    Hi folks. I see a couple other Webb's here, so I'll register mine.

    This is a Wacheon build, South Korea, early 80's, Mori Seiki clone. It is a 17x40G. It is also calked a WL-435. I bought it with a 10" 3 jaw Bison Set-Tru, a 10" 6-jaw Buck Adjust-Tru, and a 12" 4-jaw. The Buck needs a backplate and I haven't used it yet. Also came with the steady and follow rests, and a nicely done oversize steady that was built for the lathe. It has an Aloris QCTP and I got about 10 holders. Has the micrometer carriage stop and an automatic carriage stop too that disengages the power feed on Z. Also came with the chip guard you see there, which I thought was ugly at first but I sure like it now!

    A1-6 spindle nose. MT4 in the one-speed tailstock. I've seen varying weights for these but 4500 lbs is ballpark. I had to sort out some weird "fixes" in the compound and crosslide, but in general the machine is in great shape. I think that the large, hardened ways and the extra-wide bearing surface of the carriage help with that.

    She'll do 1800 on the top end and if memory serves, around 30 RPM on the low end.

    She was repainted at some point. A chuck crashed into the compound at some point too. Nice battle scar there.

    I've had it making parts since I got it and it's quite the machine.



    This is the custom oversize steady:

    Here's one that belongs to my stepdad that you don't see every day! It's a LARGE Dutch Hembrug A1 (they usually made much smaller toolroom lathes); I'd say around 18x60" and 6000 lbs, but I didn't measure it.

    The bed and headstock are all one casting on these beasts. I didn't get a lot of time with it but next time I'm in town I'm going to fire it up. This lathe may be mine someday. I'm thinking I could find room for it in my shop!

    Sorry for the bad pics. The light was poor and I just had my cell phone.
