    My brother and I share ownership of our family business and have a very similar difference in our vision for the 150+ year old company. It's sadly humbling to see companies/family's that didn't make...

    ^ +1 optical dividing head. More pictures would help, but I'd guess that the power cord was to illuminate the optical scale.

    It may depend on how Aasbrink made their version, but I would say yes for the oil hole, no for the oil groove, however I would want something in the front slot where the bearing is clamped. Many...

    Along those lines, I hope that any special tooling, prints, and extra stock stays together. There's a chance that another US gauge company might be interested in taking it on for the Legacy work.

    Machines that old didn't have manuals. The closest you'll find are pages from catalogs, so I'd start there. What information do you need?

    I'd be interested in any stray flat belt pulleys and cone pulleys that don't belong with machines.

    I've heard of that being done, but haven't worried about it on the machines I use. It might stretch more over time, but I think going from tight to loose to tight wouldn't help things. Keeping it in...

    Do you have approximate weight and dimensions after crating?

    I'll add too that many want to clear-coat parts to keep them shiney and pretty, and from my experience it never lasts. The clear coat actually stifles a lot of shine and in short time starts to get a...

    See if you can find a copy of Audel's Millwrights Handbook as there's a lot of great info in there on setting up and maintaining line-shafts.

    One thing to also consider is the angle the belt is...

    I'll add that from my experience, 4-jaw chucks are so simple that unless they have some terrible crash or are frequently used by an idiot, they'll last forever. That said, they're worth an...

    It's still on my list of places to visit. I am perhaps a little apprehensive about what I might find though. I've been to the Lexington a few times and always enjoyed it... but also was always sad to...

    I've run into some cases like that servicing other non-cnc machinery, but it was usually because the machine was making use of a neutral leg and ground and neutral were not isolated from each other.

    On my 1909 16" Hendey, I use Mobile Vactra #4 for the ways, Mobil Velocite #10 for the main spindle bearings, and Mobil DTE 26 Heavy/Medium for everything else (gears, bearings, etc.)

    Hard to say. Normally we won't interrupt operations unless the area is in the middle of major weather and employees need to leave and take care of families. We've had some pretty nasty storms come...
