    It was a rainy day yesterday so I took some time off of my outside project to finish cleaning up the tooling and put the shelfs in the cabinet. I used edge glued pine for the shelf wood cut the top...

    Thanks for confirming the late 41' date Larry. I had not seen that particular dating chart from Hardinge. I used the attached chart which shows the same S/N dates. The BB4 does still have several of...

    Here are a few pics of a little Hardinge BB4 with a defense dept. tag. Also the Los Alamos tag from where it apparently served in WW2. It is due for an overhaul but very complete including original...

    Thanks for the response spaeth. Sounds like your TL is set up very much like mine. I've got a feeling plain plywood was what they came with for shelfs, at least in the early 40's. Had I just lost the...

    Thanks rspeguin. I'm not sure if it was because Hardinge made this lathe after the start of WW2 or what but the castings were all left pretty rough. It took quite a bit of flap sanding and then I...

    Thanks for the link to the TS Ron. I had seen that earlier and it seems like there was another one on there too for around $225 but it was quite a bit rougher as in the handwheel had been welded back...

    Here are a few more pics of the under drive of my new 11"SB lathe. By the S/N, 52802, I think it works out to have been made in 32'. The motor data plate appears to have a date on it in the upper...

    I do have one question about the cabinet storage shelfs. My lathe came with what may be original plywood shelfs but it also had cut out boards that would locate where items sit on the shelfs Chucks,...

    Restored 42' Hardinge TL

    I've had this TL, S/N 18651, for quite a few years but was missing the entire original drive and have hoping one would turn up. A local machinist was parting out a DV59 this summer and I made a deal...

    I picked up this 11" x 4' South Bend underdrive lathe last week. S/N 52802. It had several components removed when I picked it up but for the most part what's there isn't in bad shape. It is missing...

    Welcome to the forum Oologahan. I have quite a few ancestors buried not far from Oolagah in the Talala cemetery. Haven't been back in years now. Wayne was building compressors way back and quite a...

    Too bad its a direct drive saw. My recently acquired 20" Mercury chop saw is belt driven and was supplied from the manufacturer, OBear & Sons, with only a 3hp single phase motor. It has survived with...

    I'm not sure what it is either but that won't stop me from throwing out a guess. It is kind of like a Prentiss but the end of the spindle where the handle passes through looks too big to be Prentiss...

    Mine has model 975 S/N 2221971 on the tag. When I contacted Scotchman for a manual they sent me one for a model 314 which looks identical to my 975. I think the S/N on mine includes the build year...

    Not sure of dimensions but here is a pic of how the blades on my little Dvorak attach. I think they were originally just a slotted bevel head screw. I used some socket head bevel screws fit flush...

    That is a pretty neat bench and pipe vise. I'm not sure the vise actually worked as well in practice as concept though....but I like it. Here is a link to an add for that vise in a googled...

    I really don’t know much about your machine but I have a similar, though probably older Kenco punch press. When I oil it up it seems to function reliably without unexpected cycles. I don’t have any...

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned Neutrogena Norwegian formula hand cream (or if they have I missed it). I generally use it only at night just so I can get to sleep without the dried out and rough...

    Buck22, too bad about your base being broken but at least you're newly fabricated one looks good and will work fine. Also the rest of the drill is sure cleaning up nicely and the paint looks great. ...

    Shame that swivel back jaw pin is cut or busted off flush with the casting. Broken off or modified purposely it hardly matters. Probably the surest way to pull it would be to drill a hole in the...

    It must just be the camera angle but in the last picture where you are dragging it up the roll back it sure looks tiny for what must be a 12" lathe. Even a 12 x 5 Hendey is a substantial machine...

    Good job on the video Ed. Anyone would have a good idea how these lathes worked after your detailed description. In proportion to original swing those riser blocks you have for that 4-1/2 seem pretty...

    Rolland, You can e-mail me a picture or two if you want. It's not too hard to get them attached in a post but I can stick them up if you want. Pics are great for showing the exact situation....
