    Same can be done with pipe for larger diameters. I was punching out 3" rubber the other day with the arbor press. Edge didn't last long, but it did it.

    Vs a CNC in nearly every measure? No. For a company/individual that needs to buzz down some plates hunks of steel a few times a week? Perfect.

    Agree. 50 cents a lb for quality American Iron in good shape??? Are we pretending like these are no longer useful?

    I saw one locally for about $2k. Also appeared to me in good shape. Man I'd have...

    Not worth the time. I shorten my belt less than once a year so far. It takes me all of 25 minutes probably.

    Looked on the tail end of the bed between the front V way and the tailstock way? Should be stamped. Might be hidden under rust.

    Man I love it! Thanks for sharing. I dunno why but the pattern of the castings really just screams "lathe" to me, more so even than the ubiquitous South Bend shape. Compare that to today's...

    No way. I have a MT4 camelback, a Royersford Excelsior. It's not a Bickford or Cleerman, but it's not a Craftsman either. It will push a 2" twist drill if you have to. I've also had the fortune of...

    Very cool!

    Any pics or info of that old American lathe? I find the early American gearheads to be extremely attractive... I'd love to see more.

    Prior to 1940s. I've seen one of the 17" models. Only one. Sidneys were very low production number lathes, only the WWII ones are around in *reasonable* numbers. There is a man on here not far back...

    I do my wipers the same way though I think yours came out a little prettier. Looks like you got a gem of a lathe for the money!

    Wow, congrats! I thought for sure that old girl was destined for the scrapper! I love old machinery but you'd have had to put a negative price on it for me to haul it off. Good on you, I think you're...

    Fair fair.

    I forgot you needed one. I'd even looked through my collection. Tsk. To young to be forgetful.

    Don't forget of course you can cut any thread a multiple of 4 without the dial. That's...

    No. I know that much. The "register" diameter is a red herring. It has been discussed ad infinitum here and elsewhere. The combination of the taper (30 degrees on the thread) and the flat back plane...

    That's a lot more torque than I need. Basically I am holding a part between two taped washers. One end has a shoulder, the other a thread. The part is...

    I'm designing a mandrel for machining some parts and need some nuts with a decent degree of parallelism, probably no more than 0.0005" runout on the face when running on the...

    Nice!

    Re threading, you do have a thread dial right? If so, stick the LSR in forward and use it like a normal lathe. But really, it couldn't be any simpler to use. Engage the halfnuts on any line...
