    I use round urethane belting on my Levin and Derbyshire lathes. This stuff is better than O-rings for use as a lathe belt. Learn to weld it with a hot piece of sheet metal and cut the flash with a...

    I agree that it is a Hardinge slide rest for a split bed bench lathe. It is the model they were still making for the model TR59 in 1945, years after dropping the Cataract trademark, so it might be...

    The 357 in my Mitutoyo caliper is about 11 mm diameter, so too small for a 16 mm cavity. LR52/A640 is possible.

    I saw off short pieces of straight copper water pipe and then saw through one side lengthwise. It will be more or less hard and springy, so it may be made to grip the hard jaws. It is easy to...

    I agree that six pins would be normal. I had a rather large OEM faceplate for a Monarch 10EE (D1-3 mount) that had three pins and no unused pin holes, so I guess three is the minimum.

    They come in different sizes and the larger, the more expensive. And a used one will be cheaper than an unused one. So, if you expect help, give the important details.
