    Thanks again Jon, I think I will roll with what I have for now, this is a one man hobby deal, doubt the machine will be turned on more than perhaps once a week on average.

    I certainly will post my results.

    I believe it is a 8F conversion but to be honest, I am not 100% on that. I bought this board 038-0217 - Circuit Board (With Upgrade Kit) and Jon sent me the...
  3. Thanks, Jon has been awesome. I ordered a new...

    Thanks, Jon has been awesome. I ordered a new board from HW yesterday. I have to say that the fact that Jon reached out and has been so helpful gave me a lot of comfort in ordering the parts. I will...
  4. Jon, Thank you for taking the time to provide...

    Jon,

    Thank you for taking the time to provide such a complete response. Based on this information I have a 6F C model.

    I will spend some time checking/adjusting the switches.

    As to the...

    I guess I should have added that I am not sure if the pwr feed motor is good or not bc the circuit board was fried; however before taking it apart, when switched on the motor acted like it was being...
  6. Bridgeport 6F Pwr Feed repair questions

    The 6F power feed on my Series 1 BP wasn't working when I got it, I disassembled it and discovered that the circuit board has some issues. As can be seen in the pictures, there are at least 2...
  7. Thank you sir, I think I have a line on some.

    Thank you sir, I think I have a line on some.
  8. Thanks for the information, good to know. Right...

    Thanks for the information, good to know. Right now my "intentions" are a bit fluid, I am a car builder and gun smith but to be very honest I do not intend to do much gun work on the lathe in the...
  9. I finally got a chance to really investigate the...

    I finally got a chance to really investigate the reverse issue and did as you (Steve) suggested. The motor was fine in either direction. I had cleaned the terminals on the rotary switch several times...
  10. Thanks for the information. Yes I have the...

    Thanks for the information. Yes I have the cooling system for the lathe however I do not think it has work for a very long time, it certainly isn't wired up.

    I took a look at the rotary drum...
  11. Thanks again for the comments and advice. I...

    Thanks again for the comments and advice.

    I am already running a 5HP RPC so I am not real excited about getting a VFD at this stage.

    I will look at the contacts very closely and see what it...
  12. Steve, Great to hear from you and thank you...

    Steve,

    Great to hear from you and thank you for the information. I confirmed that everything is getting power, basically out of the 3 legs I am getting 237-240V. I am attaching a picture of the...
  13. I went through the wiring connections and...

    I went through the wiring connections and everything is connected and as I said, it works in the forward speeds correctly. As mentioned, when the lever is placed into reverse, nothing happens except...
  14. I agree, I have already been in contact with...

    I agree, I have already been in contact with Steve about this and he provided me a lot of information about this lathe to include where it was sold in 1942. I am looking forward to learning the...
  15. Thanks for the responses; the lathe retains its...

    Thanks for the responses; the lathe retains its original SB 3PH motor. I am using a 5HP RPC with this machine, however I will go back and check the wiring from the RPC to the motor to see if...
  16. New SB Owner - really don't know squat but learning - Reverse question

    As the title says, I just acquired a 16x7 2-DW SB lathe. I have it running and in fact used it a little tonight. My current question is about how to reverse it (not that I need to reverse it now,...
  17. Thanks to all who responded, I got the timing and...

    Thanks to all who responded, I got the timing and drive belts replaced and the machine is up and running well. I deeply appreciate not only the comments but how quickly they came in; very timely and...

    They lined up ok, I used all tread and some nuts. Got the top half basically apart, now working on the timing belt. Its dirty in there but seems to be in decent condition.
  19. Thank you for the quick responses, I will do as...

    Thank you for the quick responses, I will do as suggested, I think I saw the threads were 10-32.
  20. Series I Bridgeport will not change speeds

    Hello all. I recently acquired a Series I Bridgeport which has a broken belt. I have read the manual, read through various forum postings and watched the videos. In all they say to run the motor down...
  21. So, I have managed to get the band saw...

    So, I have managed to get the band saw operational and am using a 2HP RPC to power it. Everything seems to work, however the welder worked once and then no more. Not sure exactly what the issue is...
  22. 2 speed transmission. The lever on the side of...

    2 speed transmission. The lever on the side of the machine connects to a gear box via a rod and some linkage. The motor is variable speed which is adjusted on the front of the machine.

    Also, I...
  23. Got it, makes sense. Again, appreciate the...

    Got it, makes sense. Again, appreciate the information. Once I get all the machines onsite and in place I will formulate a power delivery plan. I like the idea of one large panel powering everything...
  24. So if I have a 2HP RPC, that won't work for a 2HP...

    So if I have a 2HP RPC, that won't work for a 2HP motor in the bandsaw? Why won't a VFD work?

    Mike
  25. That's certainly an option, I need to get the...

    That's certainly an option, I need to get the mill and lathe and see what they need for power, then I can determine how much I need to run what. I do like the idea of using the 2HP I have in...
