    Glad to do it. Thanks for the update. Was the spindle / gear noise you heard even at low speeds or only after it got higher? Like I mentioned before, they can be a bit loud in the higher speeds. ...

    Your Monarch must be little. My Series 60 has a short bed and still weighs 8,000 lbs.!

    Attached is a photo to put your BP head conversion into perspective. Let's say you need a 3" spacer on...

    Not rigid in a chuck but you could with some sort of clutching / floating mechanism or put a spring loaded center in the spindle and use a tap handle (which I have done on rare occasion), but I think...

    The overall space the 2HL takes up is a little under 5' x 5', not including travel space needed for the table. However, my comment regarding being compact was with respect to everything crammed...

    You can't float the quill on this like you can a Bridgeport or drill press. It is more like the tailstock on a lathe. Furthermore, to put this into perspective -- where the K&T quill travels 0.050...

    I take it to mean he's talking about a 2HL Swivel Head Vertical, which is the proper catalog designation for one of these:

    I own one of these and have drilled and reamed with it, but I can't imagine trying to use it for tapping without something such as a Tapmatic head or some other clutching mechanism, and even then it...

    First, thank you for posting photos of the ring!

    Timbo beat me to the quill feed trip. It is necessary to remove it to install the Cherrying Attachment.

    I lifted this photo off another guy's post. I'd like to make the Coolant Pipe Ring for my machine since the odds of finding one in the wild is pretty unlikely. The drawing in the parts book...

    Mine is February of '46, so they're not terribly far apart.

    Looking closer, I'll bet the second oiler on my pump was the same as the existing Gits Wick Feed Oiler (and actually I see now that the...

    That is a different animal. I remember you're earlier than early -- is yours the 1st generation one with the whole different style of column?

    Dang, I never would have considered that. A few years ago I was wearing my favorite shop apron that I've had forever and it has a pocket on the left-front waist high. While running the lathe the...

    The book calls out that Gits oiler but doesn't show the second oiler that I have remains of in my pump base. I wonder if it's a difference between the newer and older machines like ours.

    My air pump has two oilers and one is incomplete. The incomplete one has a capillary tube that runs to the bottom of the unit. Does yours have the same? The bigger oiler is a Gits unit (a company...

    The pumps are both up and running. It was good to find that the water in the air pump well hadn't damaged the internals. A quick cleanup was all it needed. The only issue with the coolant pump was...

    When I pulled the pumps the segregated well for the air pump had quite a bit of oil in it. I figured that over a long period of time the Coolant and Air Check Valve was allowing oil to drain back...

    I haven't been slacking on anything but my updates. This week I flushed out the sump. This should have been done while outside and I just didn't think about it, so rather than move the beast again...

    I can't answer the o.p.'s original question as all of my Milwaukee tools were bought right about 2004 (and they have been wonderful) but, since we're telling war stories, here is what I did to my 18v...

    Every machinist worth his salt is good at math. The more machines you move with your new rigging, the less that rigging cost you per machine moved, so the more you buy the cheaper it gets. See,...

    When it's all said and done I think you'll be glad you went that route. Did the same place that rented you the forklift also rent the trailer to haul it? The general rule on forklifts is they weigh...

    I'm a little behind and out of order with my posts. To tide me over while I hunt for some collets, I experimented with cutting down the R-8 shank on an ER-40 collet holder to a B-3 shank. The...

    The big end of a B-3 is 0.800. The minor diameter or an R-8 is 0.950. At the point your collet protrudes it is about 1.200, so they must have hogged quite a bit out of it. I looked at this on mine...
