  1. OT: What are your favorite machining websites or blogs to read?

    By websites or blogs, I mean OTHER than forums such as this one. Websites where one person has curated a bunch of information, plans, tips, etc. and their general experience with things. Personally,...

    I would be interested in the tailstock wrench. Price?
  3. Anyone here who has removed the compound and replaced it with a riser block?

    I'm debating removing the compound on my 9A and replacing it with a riser block. I've heard it improves rigidity and finishes, and I don't really use the compound much at all. How do you feel about...
  4. Looking at getting a 5" 3-jaw chuck for my lathe, 2 piece jaws worth it?

    The 3 jaw that came with the 9A is in poor shape, so i've exclusively been using the 4 jaw. Getting tired of manually dialing everything, i'm looking into getting a new 3 jaw. As near as I can tell,...

    No worries, i'll just spin up the milling cutter and feed in an indicator to see what kind of runout it has :D My 4J is pretty nice, perhaps I should chuck up a piece of drill rod and dial it in at...

    I did see that post, and it's one of the things that got me thinking. I have a 4 Jaw, so I figured that'd probably be better hold end mills for now than the 3C collets I have.
  8. Has anyone here made the MLA-8 Dial Indicator Holder with just a lathe?

    I've been looking at the MLA-8 Dial Indicator Holder and Saddle Stop kit, and it looks like it may be possible to do on just the lathe with a bit of creativity. I'm just wondering if anyone in here...

    That was the plan, i've got material for one already. I wasn't sure if I should be doing anything else though.

    Thread Dial Casting?

    Has anyone ever thought about making up some thread dial castings? Something similar to the MLA kits. I have to imagine it'd be cheaper than the $150 people ask for them on Ebay, and i'm sure lots of...

    That's actually a pretty good idea..might keep my eye on Fleabay to see if I can pick up a cheap one at some point.

    Converting 9A 6 speed to 12 speed

    I'm wondering if I can convert my 1943 9A from 6 speeds to 12 speeds by getting a 2 step motor pulley and the 2 step countershaft pulley. In the thread i've linked below, it sounds like it's possible...

    That seems like a good idea, might have to try that out next time I need to drill a large hole!

    The quill still holds things pretty tight, so maybe it was just a mistake on my part. The drill...

    Drill Chuck Spun in Tailstock Taper

    I was doing some drilling with a 9/16" bit over the weekend on my 9", the drill bit caught and the drill chuck taper spun in the tailstock. I felt inside the taper and it didn't feel like there were...
  15. Looking for 9A reverse tumbler, any condition

    I'm looking for a 9A reverse tumbler. I have an idea for an easier reversing setup, but it involves modifying the tumbler so i'd like to try it on a junked one first before I modify my working one....
  16. Where exactly under the feet would you place a shim?

    Getting ready to level my lathe. I'm going to shim the feet to accomplish this. Question though, where exactly under the feet should I put a shim? Should I make little "U" shaped shims that slip...

    Agreed! The travel is now such that it's tight at the ends, and just about the right amount of play in the middle of the travel

    Some closure to wrap up this thread. The chuck is a Skinner, virtually new when I got it, very little to no wear whatsoever!

    I turned a precision ring to fit over the spindle to space the...

    Well, we can mark this one solved...I didn't have the retaining screw in the nut tight enough, so the nut itself was moving a little. Tighten the screw up, and all the play is virtually 100% gone.

    0.040" of play in cross slide?

    On my 9A, if you put an indicator against the cross slide and move it back and forth with your hands, there is approximately 0.040" of play. I know 0.007" of that can be accounted for by the acme...

    Thank you Jim! Tremendous help! I feared that i'd always end up chasing a ghost, but it sounds like i'll be able to take care of the issue with this procedure!

    I don't remember the make, but it's something nicer. Not a cushman, but still a reputable brand. Assuming I have a rod that is straight and the problem persists, would my assumption of the chuck...
  23. Potential Source of Error in Chuck Backplate?

    I really like that tailstock depth measuring attachment, how it mounts to the dauber hole. How did you get that piece to stay there? I thought it was just a plain hole. Did you add loctite or thread...
