    I finally got around to making a video showing the finished machine. So if you want to see how it runs or how noisy it is https://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net/core/images/smilies/biggrin.png then enjoy....

    My only caution about heat would be that the slower the heat, the more time it has to migrate. I tend to blast things hard and fast. Like a rose-bud for 20 seconds. Unfortunately that would burn all...

    Ah, my bad. The rear Vee way is probably your nearest obstruction, and I'd bet it's just a fudge over 16.5", leaving you with a 14" rated, consistent with the literature.

    CXA would certainly fit...

    I would almost guarantee CXA is the size. I can swing one by for you to mock up, but I don't think I can leave it, they're not mine to make that call.



    That's the size.

    Munktells ML35 is a very similar machine. High speed, high power, solid base, heavy built, no threading. I've been told it was a copy/competitor to a Russian lathe, and they were apparently designed...

    I like your redesign. Instead of a nice, square shaft like everybody else, Sidney decided that a round rod and a keyway would be so much better! And that they could use a lousy taper pin to hold it...

    I got one that's diameter diameter (cross and compound), one diameter radius, and a 3rd radius radius. Yeah. It's a wonder I keep any of them straight. Diameter radius is my favorite setup, as the...

    I can sit there and thunk the quill about when it's extended out, it's pretty bad. :D I think the likeliness of being able to get an excellent line bore with worn out ways is slim to none. Especially...

    Interesting result. Bummer it's not quite perfect. Some very good secondhand experience for the majority of us.

    Knowing what you know now, how well do you think this stuff would work for a bore...

    Most likely they're for a chuck key holder or some add-on, a useful addition. Might as well keep them if the damage has been done.

    Rack Contact! I groaned a bit when I saw you'd removed the pinion. It would be awfully hateful to get your gluing done just to find that the rack binds.



    I think you're slowly finding out that...

    My Sidney still needs that done. I'm dreading pulling the spindle, I imagine it's a massive undertaking. Leaks about a drop every 2-3 seconds, which sounds worse than it is. In high gear it really...

    Ah, I wondered what happened to that lathe. I felt it was overpriced, but hopefully you end up with a good machine!

    In my similar lathe refurb, I ended up pulling all of it apart except the...

    Nuh uh, no way it's 1/8". I don't have that much and yours in in much better shape.

    I think you might be putting too much faith in that casting hole for the leadscrew. Sure, it's round, machined,...

    That's the one. Way too far away for me. I am a bit envious though, we spent more money + a full resto (sans surface rebuilding) and still ended up with a shitty worn out lathe compared to yours. 8...

    Darren, I've enjoyed the thread, nice work so far!

    The one thing I would caution you on. It looks like with the ball thrust bearing that the spindle was designed expecting thrust loads to be only...

    Ways looked scraped in the brochure. While I'm sure it's possible, I've never seen hardened, scraped ways.

    My friend has an 8" Wescott, but strangely with no face adjuster and no gear teeth either. Just some holes on the back of the scroll you could use a pin spanner in. It's... not very good lol.

    I'd do a bypass.

    We bought a tig+cooler a while back, and discovered that the PO had froze the cooler, cracked the radiator, then ran the pump (a lot) dry ruining it. So we had a tank, cover,...

    As I leftie I don't mind the normal config. :D

    I've never tried an off-hand version, but I think I could get used to. I love the feed setup on these. No messing about.
