    It is quite the Frankenmill. Is that a back gear arrangement on the main spindle?

    Ignore Thermite. All he does is troll and complain. He has chased off more than one new newcomer.

    Better yet, use that little triangle icon and report his bad behavior.

    Is it always good practice to use alignment pins when constructing a piece like this? I am guessing you install the pins before drilling and tapping for screws to pull the assembly...

    Joe, could a new piece be made without welding the spacer?

    I see three rectangular pieces, 2 holes drilled and reamed, and 4 holes drilled and tapped (if stacked or done as an assembly). Ugly but...

    Usefulness of DC Motor

    I am trying to clear out some stuff.

    One of the items I have is a 1/2 HP variable speed, reversible DC motor. This probably has pretty limited application on old lathes, right? Doesn't DC lose...
