    My 1976 Tawain made lathe also has the degrees on the compound backwards. If you set it to 29.5 degrees, you get the same bad threads as you are getting. It drove me crazy when I bought the lathe as...

  7. Bridgeport mill spindle oil. Velocite #6 or #10?

    I have been using Mobil Velocite #6 oil in my 2HP series 1 Bridgeport mill for 20 years with no problems. I was recently told that is the wrong oil and I should be using Velocite #10 which is a...
  8. Who makes 4 point wrenches? Old type box wrench.

    OK, this should be a simple problem. The 5/16" 4 point (square head) Armstrong wrench has disappeared from my shaper for tightening the tool on the clapper box. Should be simple to find another one....

    What country was the lathe made in? If Taiwan or China or other countries, I would not trust the manual saying it is a MT6. I have a 1970's vintage Taiwan made lathe. The manual says it is MT6 in the...

    If the shaper tool is ground properly, it far surpasses any surface finish either my vertical or horizontal mill can produce. If your using a tool ground to be used in a lathe it will definitely make...

    I surface heads on my metal shaper. It makes them nice and flat and you start the machine and can walk away while it does all the work by itself.

    As many others have stated, a 13" x 40" lathe is not big! I started out 30 years ago with a 10" x 36" lathe and had a part I needed to make and it was not big enough. So I sold it and bought a 12 x...

    Jim,

    My R100RS had dual plug heads and it did help. But you and many are not paying attention, PRE-IGNITION AND DETONATION (KNOCKING) ARE NOT THE SAME THING! Pre-ignition is caused by the fuel...

    I am a firm believer in Stabil. I use it in everything. Some small engines such as chainsaws don't have a carb drain and this has saved me having to do carb rebuilds many times!
