    As does mine. Visible in the above photo, just below the lower clamp nut for the end-gear quadrant. That's the drain for the QC gearbox. Here's another photo of OP's machine, showing the QC gearbox...

    Those holes are supposed to be there and have nothing to do with the headstock, the quick-change (QC) gearbox nor your oil leak. Hole #1 doesn't have any function that I know of; it leads into the...

    I'm not sure what you mean.

    It's been years, but most (if not all) of the fittings on my round-dial 10EE have UNF 5/16-24 threads both ends (which work with the compression fittings). I just...

    What's a "reasonable drip-drip"? As I said, a new oiler does't pass much oil at all. It's drip...wait two minutes...drip. If oil is actually dripping out of the cross-feed dial, you have bad oilers,...

    The exciter puts out 115 VDC, but around 90 VDC is about as well as you're going to do with a simple rectifier. If the generator's field doesn't get full voltage, it won't put out full voltage to the...

    I don't have that problem with my 10EE and I don't recall anyone mentioning too much oil before. So, no, that's not normal. The only thing I can think of is that your replacement oilers are...

    If you have an add-on DC supply it's probably because the exciter failed. You can take the belt of an just leave it there.

    The exciter provides power for three things: 1) the DC control panel, 2)...

    Let me try again. What I'm suggesting is for a standard tool holder, like an Aloris No. 1 or No. 2. Take out the four setscrews that hold the cutting tool in place and replace them with long socket...

    It's amazing to me how many of the machines that are close to yours in serial number have popped up: I have photos of 7148, 7153, 7155 and now yours, 7158. Four machines, eighty years old, within 10...

    Frank's mini follower rest is very cool!

    Thinking out loud, it might be possible to hold the arm that fastens to the tool holder in place using four long SHCS in the holes that clamp the tool. Use...

    Donie, is this your machine?

    I bet that at some point in its life, the underside of the carriage was machined to clean up the ways and the right bearing bracket for the feed rod was dropped down...

    The spindle on a square-dial with ELSR is controlled by micro switches in the right bearing support casting. There's a control rod that runs through the bottom of the apron, under the feed red. A...

    That is UTTER NONSENSE! There are an amazing number of 10EEs, many over 70 years old, that still have their original drives. It's like saying that my 1960 Ford pickup has "engine problems" because if...

    Just to avoid confusion, we're actually talking about the end gear bearings. The "back gear" is the 6:1 speed reducer coupled to the spindle motor. If you're looking for the correct name for a...

    Good eye!

    That's definitely not your typical tailstock. Compare it to square-dial parts sheet 115. The graduated dial is different, as is the overall shape. I may well be one of the rare MT-3...

    Some of this tooling appears to be for a 10EE, which has a D1-3 spindle. You should check the pin diameter and pin radius to verify that they are D1-3, if not, they may be for a larger Monarch (or...

    To add to what donie posted: the stop rod, when used without an indicator, it strictly a manual feed aid. It DOES NOT automatically stop the carriage, so if you run the carriage into it using power...

    I don't know, but that's the way the three-piece end covers for the machines with factory installed collet closers are set up. Mine has it as well.

    I don't know what type of machine you have, but this was originally a motor/generator drive machine. (No way to tell what sort of drive it may have now.) But there's no relay on a normal...

    If the exciter were dead, the relays in the DC control panel wouldn't work.
