    I understand what you're saying, but I have meticulously set the wear pattern and backlash on all the bevel gears. The tooth engagement is a bit off-centered, but according to the diagrams I have...

    Oh believe me, I understand. I was running .75 and 1 IPM at about 250 RPM. The blue chips are because AR500 is an extremely tough material and the shearing action produces a lot of friction. When I...

    Well, after doing a little more research based on my theory, it seems to be correct! I started googling for P39, P40, P41, etc and found lots of very similar Kalamazoo bandsaws. I saw several people...

    Interesting, thank you. That 100 page publication is the first place I've even seen mention of this model. It looks like they're calling it a P-series / 816, made from 1939 to 1970, the specs match...
  7. Anyone have information about a Kalamazoo P43 horizontal bandsaw?

    Hello friends,

    I've had an old Kalamazoo horizontal bandsaw for a while, and have been curious about when it was made. It has been around the block a few times but it still works great and cuts...

    You know, I read this and it kinda clicked, so I started looking into it. I know the final set of bevel gears that actually drive the spindle had backlash on the very low end of the scale (about...

    Okay so here it is. The width of the slot, the best I can measure it, is 1.0012. The height of the lug, based on the height of the spindle gap and the height of most of my toolholders, seems to be...

    Unfortunately, I have no idea what the lugs look like as I do not have any. I only have the width needed for the lugs, as I obviously have the two gaps in the spindle lip where the lugs would go....

    Okay, fair enough :)

    I will admit that I have probably used angle grinders more than any other tool in my shop, so I get it!

    Oh, I get it, to be clear, I'll make them on the old bridgeport. I was trying to be light-hearted, apologies for the miscommunication. :)

    Yeah, fascinating huh, how there's not even a pair of them on ebay (even if they are spindle or machine specific). Fascinating.

    I agree with your assessment, now if only I had some drive keys for...

    WTB: 50 NMTB drive lugs/keys

    For some reason, I can't find these anywhere. Does anyone have a pair for sale? Or know where I can get them?

    Yup! I've spent weeks dis-assembling and re-assembling the machine over and over, making custom shims, painting the gears to check wear pattern, measuring backlash etc etc etc etc etc etc etc.

    So, what I did, especially since in almost all cases there were no strict bearing surfaces and such (bearing lands on shafts were 10-20% bigger than the bearings themselves), I just put everything...

    Yup! I just got lucky, I was only maybe 65 miles away. I rented a trailer, drove on over and he forklifted it on. People were calling him asking about the lathe multiple times while I was standing...

    Probably is. $400! Doesn't even appear to have much if any wear, flaking is evident all the way up to the chuck. Even came with a VFD and a quick-change toolpost.

    Update: I started messing with the machine a bit. I turned the large nut on top of the spindle 1/8 turn at a time and examined the effects. The surface finish cleaned up quite a bit, and I was able...
  22. Cincinnati #2 universal head: terrible surface finish after dis/reassembly of spindle

    Hello friends,

    I posted this in the machine reconditioning forum and was suggested to post it here. So here goes: I have a new-to-me 1938 Cincinnati 2MH with the universal/toolmaker's overarm.

    Pics of how the surface finish looks now. This is just junk mild steel so I'm not too worried about the "smeared" look. The second picture shows what I'm talking about though,...

    Interesting, thank you. I've got it at about 30ft/lbs I'd say (hard to tell, the nut is tightened with a pin wrench which I don't even have the right size for, so I'm kinda doing guesswork at the...

    Thank you, those are indeed pretty close. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be any information regarding my situation.
