    Good attention to detail on your Hendey. I'm more a fan of the grays and blacks when rebuilding them, but they're looking great! My 1909 Hendey 16x8 was a similar "John Deere Green" when I started...

    Sorry to hear, but hope you end up with a better machine. I'll have to see how close it is generationally, but I might be able to use a couple pieces for me 16" gear head Hendey. Do you have any...

    I have a friend who's an oilfield engineer. He gets bunch's of scrap 8" round 1/2" thick steel drops that are flame cut from sheets and welds them into hanging targets. I'm not sure of the grade, but...

    Yesterday, my brother called everyone together and started telling them how much we appreciated them and how everyone's having to deal with stuff during the pandemic, so he wanted to give us all a...

    I wouldn't be surprised if the paint was real. In some of the close-ups, they covered so much of the machines just like they do when "maintenance" crews are told to brighten up the factory floor.

    6 jaws can be perfect for some jobs, but they are not a universal "better" chuck than a 3 or 4 jaw. They are made to hold thin stuff like tubing or bronze bushings lightly without distorting or...

    Was the guard painted like it came off your machine originally? In some cases, non-critical parts like that would have been machined to fit an individual machine or batch of machines, so they don't...

    I'm interested... just don't have the funds at the moment:o. It would be much nicer than the home-brew ball bearing in an aluminum block set-up currently with our 9" SB.

    Here's a video going over the gear train and the area I'm thinking had some kind of attachment for the lead screw.

    By my understanding of it, "Minimum Quantity Lubrication" is essentially just mist coolant and air blast instead of traditional flood. It IS in widespread use already, but I don't see how or why it...

    If you're making the blanks out of raw stock to send to your engraver, I think the biggest thing will be keeping the ID a slip fit with the embossers shaft, and keeping the ID/OD concentric. I'd try...

    One other thought on the threading dial issue: am I correct in assuming that I can use any threading dial that came from a lathe that has the same diameter and pitch of lead-screw? If so I'll see...

    I don't have experience with that style, but We use Koolmist and Trico misters around the shop and on ours, the siphon and spray effect happen right at the tip of the nozzle, so if that's missing...

    One other question going back to the steady rests: I've seen some intermediate ones that only cradle the work on the bottom. I'm going to make one regular steady rest to hold the far end of the work,...

    I've made a little progress on the lathe. It's in one piece with the exception of the broken leg and a couple bits on the apron. I started brazing the leg but it isn't all cooling at the same rate so...

    My Whitcomb Blaisdell lathe has V-ways on the front and back like that steady would use. Mine's a 14" (which was the smallest they made) but it measures closer to 15" swing.

    On edit: it wouldn't...

    I'd worry about how well those tiny gears would hold up under load or interrupted cut on a mill. They might give you the desired speed, but it's a little deceptive IMO as I don't see the torque...

    Is the noise happening when it's in direct drive or in back gear?

    On my 820, the pin the slides into the outer rim of the cone pulley for direct drive engagement would make a lot of noise and pop...

    If I remember right, the top cover hinges are ecentric so you can rotate them to adjust how far front-to-back the cover sits.

    The sash chain that's hanging next to the head is likely part of a counterbalance. See if it broke free and is rattling around inside the column (something like a cast iron weight with a small pulley...

    From the center of the steady to the top of the ways is 2 1/2." The hold-down clamp is 1 1/4" wide, and 7/16" tall. It has a step on one side, and an angle on the other.
