    You got it. on the ears of head stock, that hold that shaft. Pointing down toward ground on underside. Each ear should have a square head screw (if original). By tightening those two screws, it...

    I'd probably use F1 felt as the wiper material. Better oil retention. Some felts also used a hard plastic in front of it. But I think plastic or neoprene alone may alone may allow some fine particles...

    The bondo idea is not terrible, less tools and expense to get it symmetrical.

    To get the zero mark of bushing centered. Id buy shim packs off ebay, to fit the OD of bushing threads. You can...

    My quill mark is on the side, but I don't have a bevel either.

    In truth I don't find the quill mark all that convenient, as I have to fully extend quill to reach across compound.

    Have not owned one, but test drove a 500 a few years back. It is truly a fun driving car. Sitting it felt right too, hugged by seat, controls etc. A basic 500 I can't imagine being all that hard to...

    Even with an etched line on tail stock quill, I'd use it as an estimate, or in the general ball park.

    Not knowing the wear on tailstock, and whether its truly pointing at center. Could be .010 to...

    I'm a bit from getting to construction, but my current thinking is a three tier heavy cart on wheels. 20hp idler on bottom shelf/support whatever. 7.5 idler on the next/middle shelf, with shaft at 12...

    No rush, whenever you get to it. I'm not ready to start building/wiring yet. I'm more info and parts gathering atm.

    As I mentioned to a certain degree it may be moot, if this 20hp 1200rpm motor...

    I like that squeegee idea, that might be the ticket. I've used rags, or shop style paper towels, it works, but occasionally I suck up whats in the grads, and need a redo.

    Your pics look great.

    On posting photos, Apple products have mixed results. Some other guys have been trying to sort it out. Might check out this thread, as I think they resize, or change file names:

    I personally love polished and shiney, like the chrome look. However its hard to read grads and markings due to light glare. An example would be Starret outside mics, No 436 I think they are. Well...

    Every lathe is going to be different. You need to run checks to find your best spot a C hair above center line. As already mentioned, the tail stock quill should have an etched line at approximate...

    Agreed. I was actually expecting other 9 owners to chime in much earlier. Might just be a blind spot many missed. Good thread, informative.

    I was only aware the 9 had different pieces for nut when...

    I see the larger one looks too deep on the natural end to screw onto your spindle. If you flip it the wrong way, will it screw on ?

    If it does, you might be able to bolt it on to one of your good...

    I'm only part way into going through mine, but I believe I have most or all of the pieces. I think I am looking at mostly maintenance, minor repairs, and cosmetic. But I might not totally know that...

    From post #8:



    While I don't 100% know, maybe the nuts mcload had both happened to be aftermarket, let's say originals replaced somewhere in the lathes mid-life. New guy who made the...

    Those are numbers you want to know. Not just for idling numbers, but for diagnostics as well, if watching amps you'll know if you have wiring or motor issues, as any faults will most likely drawl...

    A couple of side questions.

    I'm curious what your idling amps are with each stage of the rpc fired up. Not starting amps, just the idling amps. The amps to incoming single phase L1 and L2.

    Im guessing, but was thinking two possibilities on why drilled that way. One, a smaller opening would prevent chips falling directly on screw if I was clumsy oiling. Two, maybe to not create a...
