    Who says if it has stuff going to it if you haven’t opened it? Those boxes usually have rear knockouts.

    There could be wires coming in from the sides you can’t see.

    I wasn’t saying it was better, I was just saying that it appeared to be the default recommendation from American based on some of their literature I have read. I always associate LeBlond, American,...

    1. Buy machine
    2. Buy another machine that can make missing parts for machine one. Bonus points if machine one can make parts for machine two.
    3. Buy third machine to make parts for first two.

    Er, ok, that could have come off as being a dick. But phi is used for a number of other specific things, most applicably angles or polar coordinates.

    On further reflection, it was probably just a...

    I was sort of under the impression that American recommended the L nose by default. Most lathes I have seen have an L nose. Their literature seems to suggest it too. But maybe by the late 60s the...

    Thanks for the clarification on the handwheel, Joe. I wasn’t sure exactly how that one was attached.

    This appears to be a straight shank drill chuck. They were either bored on 1/2” or 41/64” size. The set screw pushes into a spot on the bit and acts as a driver. Maybe try some heat to try to expand...

    Did you manage to score that vertical mill (maybe a Cincy?) hiding in the left of photo 2? :cool:

    In regards to too much force on the chuck, I am sure the engine hoist would have crumpled before it reached anywhere near that amount. Plus, if the chuck wouldn’t come off, there was no hope for the...

    Ha, yeah, the engine hoist couldn’t get any closer because of the casting on the lathe. Otherwise I would have run the ram in much, much further. I applied enough pressure on the hoist and watched as...

    I have this 1967 American “square head” 14x54 lathe sitting in my home shop that needs some fixing. It has a few broken external parts and what not, but the most daunting problem has been removing...

    If you found one cheap, it would be worth it for the cool factor. They either come with Brown and Sharpe 7 taper (stock) or Morse 2 (factory option). Probably not as useful as some more current/cheap...

    The 71 takes thicker and taller blades than the 77. The 77 takes a much thinner blade. If you need deep parting and have the horse power and rigidity to push a thicker blade, the 71 is for you. It...

    Aligning the tool is pretty easily, assuming that your lathe has ok accuracy. Get the hex stock as concentric as you can in your chuck. Set your compound angle for threading and then place an...

    Thanks for the link, Matt!

    Kind of what I figured. It will be fun to experiment with at home, maybe on some aluminum or stainless. Though, I suppose I probably won’t notice too much of a...
  20. Rex 49 tool bits information and comparison?

    I just bought some NOS Rex 49 lathe tool bits mostly out of curiosity and price/bit. Information online seems to be a bit sparse. About all I can find is that it seems to be equivalent-ish to AISI...

    I always look at those and imagine it must have been pretty stressful to rig those. Bottom motor lathes are worrisome enough.
