    Thanks to both of you for the suggestions. SLK001, I plan to file a keyway (I don't have a Mill as yet) into the root of the broken tooth, then insert a tooth from a scrap Bull gear. I can cut this...

    Looking for a couple of items.

    As I work my way through this SB13 rebuild, I'm coming across little annoyances that need attention.
    The 80 tooth idler gear on the left of the headstock only has 79 teeth. If there's one floating...

    Hi 10K:

    You're right sbout the filler. I chisled a small area of the "pig dung" :D out before realizing that this thick stuff was intentional. Now I wish I hadn't done that, as it's just another...

    1965 SB 13" rebuild update and question.

    Hi all:

    It's been some time since I've posted on my rebuild project. To be honest, much time has been spent over the past couple of months refurbishing the various parts and setting them aside,...

    Hi 10K:

    Had a change of heart after closely examining the knurled knobs looking for those pins.
    The pin in one of the knobs is very faintly visible, in the other tumbler, no matter how hard I...

    Hi Medsar:
    No I never worked for Dräger, but I was trained by them 34 years ago after going out on my own. I've completely refurbished many 2As and 2Bs over the years and also built several portable...

    Kevin:

    It's quite easy to do. I have a SB9A that's doing a lot of the grunt work. The entire TS was stripped down to bare metal. At that stage, the tailstock nut was chucked up in the 9A on the...

    I'm not absolutely sure its hardened. The reamer didn't remove chips, just crud. But it left a shiny surface on 75% of the quill. There definitely is some galling in there, a half inch band about...

    Hi Stephen:

    Now that I've stepped up to a MT3 size lathe, I don't forsee the need for a MT4 reamer, so I'll give some thought to passing it your way. For the time being, I'll hang onto the MT3. If...

    I'm not going to use it on anything at present.
    The eBayer was selling reamers in pairs.
    I already have a MT2 that was purchased to clean up the TS quill on my SB9A, so I opted for a MT4. Figured...

    Hi Ted:

    I did purchase the felt kit and book, it arrived last week. Lots of interesting reading.

    The SB13 rebuild has started.

    I'm a little late posting this, but wanted to share my enthusiasm in starting the rebuild of my newly acquired SB13.

    Thanks SLK001, that makes perfect sense. I was curious as to why the two cover parts were put together in such an awkward manner.
