    You might consider the MLA-9 casting kit from Metal Lathe Accessories from which you can build your own. I bought one and fitted it to my 13" Colchester Student Mk 1.5 and it works quite well.

    If you swap tanks you don't have to deal with the re-certification cost when it is needed. Of course, the outfits that do the swaps spread the re-certification costs across all of their tank...

    If I were building this, I would probably make a jig (out of steel) with the shape of the bent profile of the part and then use it as a form to hot bend the parts. Starting with a 30" piece one could...

    The exact angle isn't really important. The critical dimension is getting the spacing between the parts of the two arms correct while maintaining the dimension shown between the 29/32" hole and the...

    I have been searching for a parts list but, so far, I've been unsuccessful. I have a UPA2 that is missing some parts that I know of and probably others that I haven't discovered yet.

  8. Need Help Identifying a Taper Attachment

    I have a larger taper attachment that I bought as part of a lot several years ago. I had thoughts of using parts of it to make a taper attachment for my Colchester lathe but have since decided that...

    Unfortunately, no. Only the first deck below the main deck was open and much of it, too, was off limits. Even so, it was still very interesting to see especially as part of a larger Pearl Harbor...

    It was recommissioned and refitted in the 1980s and took part in Operation Desert Storm 1991. It is today stationed in Pearl Harbor near the USS Arizona memorial as a museum.
  11. Machine Shop Aboard the Battleship Missouri

    I had the opportunity to walk through one of the decks of the Mighty Mo a few days ago. One point of interest relevant to this forum was the machine shop. It was roped off so I couldn't go inside but...

    I got the clear impression that it did - I've never tried to confirm that, however. The attached image is an excerpt from the manual for a lathe with the safety apron. It seems to say that it does...

    I think that the only machines with T-slots on the saddle are those with a gap bed.

    If you know that it is a "Student", there are Mk 1, Mk 1-1/2, and Mk 2 versions. The first two both have the...

    I've attached photos of the labeling of the hole circles on plates #1 and #2. At the time, plate #2 was on the dividing head as I was using it to cut a 35 tooth gear and I will be using plate #1 to...

    Each Ellis plate #1, 2, and 3 has exactly the same set of holes in exactly the same order as the B&S #1, 2, and 3. In all cases, the lower hole count circles are innermost and the hole counts...

    FYI, the Ellis #1, 2, and 3 plates have the same hole circles as the B&S #1, 2, and 3 plates. I have an Ellis dividing head with those three plates.

    The Portland, OR CraigsList has a listing for a South Bend lathe which the seller says has a 24" swing. I don't know much about the various lathes that South Bend made but this one looks like it has...

    K&T Handwheel Removal Mystery Solved

    I posted some time back asking how to remove the X-axis handwheel on my K&T 2CHL. I was assured that if I just removed the pins it should just slip off. Well, removing the pins wasn't so simple. One...

    K&T 4CH Vertical near Washougal, WA

    Someone is listing a K&T 4CH vertical mill on CraigsList for $900. I have no relationship to the seller - just passing it along.

    They also have a large Monarch lathe listed in the same ad.

    If the OP is actually talking about a splined shaft, then my comments are on topic. The fact that my splined shaft is in a different part of a different brand of lathe is completely irrelevant. On...

    I'm in the planning stage for making a 7/16" 6-spline shaft about 5 inches long (for a telescoping crossfeed screw for a taper attachment). I searched online for a supplier of such shafting and...
