    😂 "WTF" does not usually stand for "where to find". It's usually a salty expression of outrage, so I want really sure what to expect when I opened the thread.

    Now that you know where the magnets need to be you can make a new polished rod to match the rest of the piece. I'd probably glue the magnets in place so that there were no hex nuts or any other...

    For modern techniques to smooth compound curved surfaces like the saddle shape inside the headstock I'd suggest a pneumatic drum sander. I have a Dynabrade 2" diameter drum I use on a large inline...

    You don't even need a protractor at all. Any angle between 60 and 65°, as your lathe is marked, will do so you could simply eyeball by splitting the angle on your thread gage and err towards the...

    Since you strongly prefer local pickup, it would benefit you to put your location in the post since it is not displayed to viewers on mobile devices.

    Crossthread,

    Unless this is for a MotoGP bike, you might be over thinking the alignment. The rear wheel has adjustment for chain tension and alignment, so front to back isn't that critical. The...

    Get the rear axle parallel up and down too. If eyeballing it parallel isn't good enough you could let the dummy axle rest on two straight edges placed across the lathe bed. (Assuming you line bore on...

    Align it parallel with the axle at the other end of the swing arm. Exact position is less important.

    Use a dummy axle if necessary, line bore or piloted /guided reamer for the second hole.

    I've got a machining textbook from the 1920's with a similar issue and another where one of the folded signatures never got its edges trimmed, so I had to slit the edges of the pages apart.

    That is a lot of rubber in that foot. I'd try and find a catalog number and see how much weight they're rated for. They may not be suited for much more than a workbench.

    My Union Chuck from eBay has worn slots so the jaws wobble and it doesn't hold work in line with the spindle axis. Kind of defeated my "a four-jaw is as accurate as you want it to be!" logic.

    One is on a speed handle and they other had as shank to go in a brace. This says to me they're intended to turn more with less torque than a wrench. Maybe they're drivers for another tool?
