    I think I would first see what a local shop would charge to redo those leads and maybe re-varnish the coils while they're in there. Then you'll basically have a new motor.

    I stumbled across these photos of the USS Iowa's machine shop: USS Iowa machine shop - photos - HomemadeTools.net

    It includes a couple of photos of the Iowa's Sidney lathe.

    And the problem with using a 3000 Ohm plus a 200 Ohm resistor (which happen to be the OEM size), vs. two 1600 Ohm resistors, is? Unless I'm missing something here, the "resistive value matches...

    Dave,

    EE-3216 is correct for your machine as far as I can tell. Unless there's a version out there that includes the coolant pump, but I've never seen the coolant pump wiring show up on any...

    I don't see a Variable Reverse Speed Control (VRSC) box on the back, so if the forward and reverse speeds aren't about the same, it's probably brush timing.

    You probably already know this but:...

    Both the 1939 patent and the 1939 10EE brochure show dual V-belts. I can't find a single example of a Sundstrand drive machine with a flat belt in my photo archive. That doesn't mean that they don't...

    Dave,

    The spindle lock switch was a square-dial feature. But I don't think that tailstock's is original to the machine.

    You've easily got $1000 worth of tooling alone. I can't tell from the one photo of the lathe whether it's a round- or square-dial machine; it could be either with that build date. Brushes are cheap,...

    John, Thanks for the explanation. Do you have any idea if, during the "EE" prefix drawing days, they would have generated an assembly drawing for each version of a unit. For example, I know that...

    It's not like you can just plug in a Parker drive (actually two drives) and go. You have a lot of wiring to do plus parts such as relays, switches, potentiometers, terminal strips, etc., to locate...

    If it's a 550 VAC machine, it was probably sold to a Canadian company and those MGs are typically single voltage. Not a great choice for a home shop machine, since you can't run it from 240 single...

    It sounds like your exciter has lost most of it's residual magnetism. That sometimes happens when the sit for a while. You may need to flash the exciter. See this thread:

    So that machine won't start with the knob set to minimum? That doesn't seem right. Mine doesn't go all the way to zero; about 8 RPM is the bottom end of the speed range. Maybe his wiper hits a dead...

    It looks as if your DC control panel has been modified at some point. The three resistors at the top are not in the normal location.

    Bill,

    Unless the "Magic Smoke" has gotten out of the DC motor, it's probably going to be a lot easier to replace the DC controller than to go with a AC motor swap, especially since you want to...
