    It can definitely be done. Maybe HPPEngines can post a pic of the gearing mods on the back of the lathe. I am curious to see how it was done. Would still need to deal with the tailstock base.

    Removing the risers under the headstock and the compound would probably be easy but the original base under the tailstock is missing. There would also have been some modifications to the gearing on...

    Looks pretty much the same as my 1924 18” B&E that I sold a few years ago. I was a good machine. It was the machine I learned on. Dad bought it in 1968 and gave it to me in 1985. Sold it in 2010...

    The restoration was done 8 years ago so I really don't remember. But I don't recall having any problem with dis-assembly. I tore it down to nothing and built it back up.

    I was given one of those when my buddy's dad passed. He had modified it. Now it is more of a surface grinder than a cutter grinder. I have used it sparingly but it works pretty well.

    Century motor, 2HP, single phase with brushes. It was pretty old but worked. Every once in a while the brush assembly would stick during startup due to dirt/dust. Needed cleaned and lubed regularly.

    The Cullman drive is a nice unit. Probably was added at a later date. But where is the step pulley? Not much good for another machine without the step pulley. I can see why it was removed but it...

    Same vintage as my 20" Flather. Too bad you don't have an overarm for the countershaft. Mine goes a little slow but that is where it ended up with a 3 HP 1725 rpm motor and a 5 to 1 gear reducer. It...

    I have two 4-jaw combination chucks. A 16" Westcott and a 12" no name. Both appear to have seen little use and have very little wear if any. The 16" is set up for my 20" lathe and I have used it from...

    Just like my M22. Great little machine. I found an additional arbor with a B&S 9 that was 7/8” dia. I just had to make a bushing so it fit into the overarm. I was given a bunch of gear cutters...

    My buddy thinks it may have been from some old antique farm machinery. Maybe a thresher. That may be since it was found in a farming area.

    Wish I knew what went on the end of that shaft.

    Gary: Price is still too high. I agree with Joe. I would go no more than $250. Then buy a gear, hope nothing else is broken, then have to tear apart the head and rebuild it. Too many unknowns. ...

    The cluster gear may be very hard to find if you can find one at all. I think it is a solid piece similar to a cluster gear in a 4 speed std transmission. No pins. I had the top of the head off mine...
