    Yes, you want the heat... However, I worry about a 100 watt bulb under a canvas cover - especially if the canvas gets too close to the bulb. A piano heater is usually less than 20 watts. The cover...

    +1 on what Jim said above. Keep it covered and oiled (lathe oil, not LPS type of stuff. I don't know about the 60-100 watt bulbs, but there is such a thing as a "piano heater", which raises the...

    Your spindle doesn't appear to be hardened, so you shouldn't have any problems facing a little off.

    Still not clear on how you sheared the pin off. Brute force? Big pipe wrench?

    I would counterbore the holes on the top so that they were below the plane of the top, then cover the entire bench with some sheet steel. Even more elaborate would be to add angled edges to the...

    Make a spindle? That isn't a job for the feint of heart.

    IIRC, the original spindles were case hardened from alloy steel, then ground and polished, then superfinshed to a smoothness of 5...

    The scrolls are supposed to be a tight fit. It it is clean (no swarf), it should just fall out with some gentle coaxing.

    Also do NOT drill any holes. As mentioned, all that does is give direct...

    Perhaps some owner didn't know how to properly adjust the bearing clearances. Does it look like excessive wear on the spindle and bearings?

    Yes, you START by changing out the spindle. Then you spend and spend and spend on chucks, faceplates, collet holders, etc, etc.

    Did you change the spindle wicks? My guess is that your spindle is being oil starved because the wicks are clogged with the old, hardened oil. If you didn't change them, then STOP everything you...

    My lathe (a H10) was also purchased from Volz in Chicago (there is a plaque on my gear cover as I don't have the serial card).

    I wonder what the POINTS PAID stamp means on the card.

    You run a serpentine belt rib side down. After a while, you can see a shadow where the ribs ride, but it is slight. I imagine we won't live long enough to see significant wear in the pulleys.

    That's the well known tailstock droop. It is wear in the tailstock itself. You can line-bore the tailstock and put in a sleeve to fix the droop. Do NOT shim under the tailstock, as this isn't...

    The bolts don't do much holding - the recess in the chuck body closely mates with the backplate to do the majority of the holding. The screws just keep things from randomly coming apart.
