    Another item I want to address in the apron is the oil pump, and oil system. Dropping the oil pan off the bottom of apron. A bunch of pasty old garbage:

    Looking at the clutch lever assembly on apron. It is its own assembly block that attaches with two allen head bolts:

    I don't have a great pic, but zooming in I think someone modified the collar just before pinion gear, and added a stop or foot bearing. That step appears to ride on bed rack just above the gear...

    In general I'm for highlighting raised letters. Exception for me maybe gray color machines. Red, white, or black lettering just does not tickle my fancy on a gray machine.

    No the tag saying "American Machine and Tool Co" helps :D

    The lever on qcgb, the square is a replaceable insert, by the looks of it I think these are too. There are two on the apron.

    The one on qcgb is in good shape. It looks to me as a solid insert...

    Yea, .030" is excessive, but too tight is way worse than too loose if we're talking tapered roller bearings. Too tight will smoke them quick. Too loose meh, how many wheel bearings in automotive or...

    Getting ready to start the apron.

    When I removed it I had washed it out over a parts washer. Cursory inspection, all the gear teeth are there, and no wasted roller or ball bearings....

    The lead screw end bracket has 4 bearing holes, lead screw, lead screw reverse, clutch, and feed rod. The bearings for lead screw and lead screw reverse were fine, I left them alone.

    With moving the clutch bevel gears in qcgb 180 degrees out, I cut a new key slot in the through rod for clutch on the rear side, where lever assembly mounts.

    A quick solution for parting tool, going to need to grind that cutting edge down to use the same tool and parting blade.

    If your #1 holders can go low enough, might go this route.

    Well that Phase 2 part number is an Aloris AXA size, which I would have assumed should be in range for a SB 9. But though you look set up correctly, it appears the AXA size it too tall, you are...

    Pretty sure you'll want a BXA size. But you dont need to guess. First measure from the top of your compound to the spindle center line.

    Pretty nice. I like the 360 degree markers.

    One thing comes to mind, outside the normal use. Chuck up a piece of round stock. If you're centered and clamp on that 360 degree indexer to the stock...

    I have not used that gorilla hair wheel bearing grease btw :D.

    The last 16" i did, the cone pulley had a bearing surface at each end. Cavity in the middle. I used oil here, thinking oil level to...

    I see what looks like a locking screw opposite the slot, which i would think keeps bearing from potentially spinning in bore.

    My preference would be halfway into bearing's edge, but not too close...

    I agree with the sentiment, and why I opted to grease my first build. Grease would totally fill the cavity and not run out like oil. And a pump or two ever now and then will lube the thrust bearings...

    On some, or even many things i might agree. But the cone pully lube was a straight up terrible design.

    For perspective, imagine leaving spindle bearing dry, but you're going to dump oil on the...
