    Inbox has been partly cleared.

    Yeah, we'll see eventually why this one did not seem to be Jarno... may have been modified, have a ding I did not spot, etc. A Jarno taper is not the easiest thing...

    Well your pals the chinese have a solution for that, kill lots of others, make more room for them.

    "Growth" has many ways to happen. Not all involve zero sum. However, as long as there are more...

    I'm the only one who needs to ride that horsie.......

    But, when I get back in town (I'm up near Mr King at the moment) We'll see

    Yah.... here, the (republican) governor is pushing all the vaccine to rural areas, and keeping it away from cities. The County here, 1 million residents, gets 3000 doses per week allocated. That...

    Well, thank you!

    Now I know the reason for the taller part on this collet stand..... The drawtube for the 4NS collets. As I have some collets and no drawtube, it never occurred to me. (The stand...

    ALL economies are based on growth. Your chinese economy is based on that also, has been ever since it was opened up.

    Try basing an economy on shrinking, and see where it gets you.

    "Growth" is...

    Primary complaint is from low wage countries who squall that they are being discriminated against. Which is perfectly true.

    The US benefitted from that when we became the lowest cost source of...

    Minumum wage here is about $7.75 or so. There are 2080 standard working hours in the year. Some simple multiplication suggests that the annual wage (NOT "SALARY") could be as high as $16,120, IF...

    A cabinetmaker might very well have used a joint that looked like that. But hidden inside it would be a dovetail...... "hidden dovetail" is one term I have heard for it. Also "secret mitre...

    In my experience, re;airs are unproductive in general, unless there is no chance of a new one.

    Because Part of the apparent failure is a code failure, i.e. the code chsnge that should do something...

    Thermite:

    Your option what you THINK of it, the specs give it as I mentioned.

    Jarno IS "about 3 deg", depending on how the taper is given, being 2.8624......... deg (0.6" in 12"), but this...
  12. I like that, it's pretty much what I had in mind....

    I like that, it's pretty much what I had in mind. It's going to depend on how much wear I find in the dovetail. Being a V that is open toward the top, it is a crap-trap, and no-wonder you found...
  13. There is nothing still "good" on it other than...

    There is nothing still "good" on it other than the headstock end, and to some extent maybe the tailstock end. All surfaces that were not under the headstock have damage.

    The damage includes...

    Here's a couple shots I had of the various parts, Go for it! The thumb wheel got changed after a bit of use, to the conical shape. Also, the threaded tube is keyed to the base, and has a flat for...

    Many different footstock/center supports will work if you make new alignment blocks/strips to fit your table slot.

    Well, none of the feeds work out to any usable thread... a couple are "close". So single point threading is pretty much out.

    No compound. The tailstock looks like it escaped from a Logan, or...

    Inertia exists, sure.

    So do torque variations.

    Some applications won't matter, some will. If the application is torque sensitive, typically run near top of motor capability, then the torque...

    I have both the book and a longer straightedge along with smaller ones..... and several flats, squares, a "Kingway" type device, indicators, etc although not a flat big enough for the...

    I listened to most of a video, but while the views were fine, I could barely understand the audio, and it almost disappears several times during the video. Didn't get much from it, ,but may try...

    And it is a good thought, especially if the V happens not to be worn, which is very likely the case (it is stained, with what is often called "surface rust", but does not appear to have any visible...

    Yes, that is the beastie.

    Headstock takes 5C right in the spindle. That is similar to other modelmaker's, or clockmaker's lathes. (earlier versions took #4, or 4NS collets)

    Tailstock is a...

    There is still a building at that address, that looks as if it could have been the building for the company. Rather deep, goes clear back to the next street, (Myrtle), and could have been a...

    Yes, the headstock sits on those. Likewise the tailstock.
  25. Strategy question: leave the area under the headstock alone? Or scrape everything?

    So, I finally have located enough parts to complete, I think, my personal Rivett 608, so it makes sense to get back to working on that when I have time. The bed needs to be scraped, wear, some...
