    Mine is a round dial switch. It is about ½" shorter than a square dial switch, although the parts look the same. It appears that the square dial switch has one additional layer of contacts, which...

    OK, if you remove the two woodruff keys from the cross slide screw you should be able to pull or tap the screw out towards the back, and you can remove the thrust bearing. If that works then there...

    I am fixing up a Monarch tool cabinet for the 59 10EE. This cabinet was acquired in parts - the lazy susan mechanism was not attached and I never noticed that is is incorrect for the cabinet. Here...

    Please re-read post 153 above, the instructions for dealing with that problem are there. I'm about to join the chorus, it seems.

    The round dial ELSR is a very interesting system. You owe itself to take it apart and figure out how it works, then ask some more questions. I think one thing not mentioned above is that there is a...

    The design of that tailstock crank system looks interesting. The crank support is hinged at the top and can be swung up and out of the way if not needed. When the crank is down there is a pinion...

    Does anyone have experience with shortening a Microsyn scale? e.g. what adhesive did you use to attach the carbon fiber tube to the aluminum fitting at the cut end? How is the tension adjusted?

    I installed a Microsyn scale on the cross slide of my 1940 Monarch 10EE, which is supported only at the front end (the cross slide is short so supporting the scale at both ends was not an option). ...

    Great, that helps. It looks like that part is loose, but if it does not pull through easily, don't pull hard. Instead, loosen the cap bolts that attach the saddle to the apron, along with the...

    OK, then more info is needed. Do you have a photo of the cross slide screw? Or did that go away along with the taper attachment? When the taper attachment is removed, if the telescoping cross...

    Not all round dials. The 1939-1940 machines have a rectangular flange with 4-bolts, which also means the saddle is different. A later round dial cross feed dial will not fit a 1939-1940 machine,...

    Well, I should give some more info. about the application. The DPDT switch needs to handle 15A. I really don't need any additional functionality, just a simple DPDT wireless switch or relay.

    I think this is what you need:

    283692

    Thats a hard part to break, unless the lathe did a face plant or had a run-in with a forklift.
    The photo actually shows two parts, the front part of the...

    The expanding foam you used did not completely setup (probably too much of it), so the tool holders in the center were wet. It dissolved the shrink wrap, and then it started drying as soon as it was...
