    The tolerances of +/- .0005" with a generic (new) criterion will worry you a bit, but it’s done, & going from 3/4” to 1.5” (you’ll always want more) is likely the best choice.

    Maraging steels in the 300 condition are going to be pretty tough with a wobbler I think, and the .505 length to tool shoulder prolly could be fudged for brass but not this stuff.

    I've never seen one like it, should'a set a $1 bill in front with a quarter on it for scale.

    I like it, & DON'T paint it,

    I've never used it. My guess is it's just expensive having 5 rare element sweeteners mixed in. The only thing they point out in the data sheet is it's biased for abrasion resistance (pg.2). Attached...

    I have a 100-1527 from that era (9"x42" table & power quill feed). Parts list calls the crown nut a "ball type nut" spec says "M12" qty. "2" for the X axis screw.

    After 36 years I wouldn’t sweat it JCB. :D

    @ wgt500, Well it’s going back and frankly if you worked before successfully with a smaller version “it should be going back”. These machines maybe can’t...

    OOOOHH BOB!

    You need to get the pump in that fridge running. The door on those things hold a case of beer & the top shelf on the door is the coolest place on a duplex type fridge.

    You don't...

    You’ve been at it for 6-7 years OK & now the boss wants to optimize???

    Finkl block (FX #2) is only slightly tougher than 4340 at the same strength level. You could search on that maybe.

    You don’t spec shielding etc… Nevertheless extra light series metric radial will likely be what you want. SKF’s would be 6001, 6002 and 6003 having 12mm, 15mm and 17mm bores and 8mm, 9mm and 10mm...

    Thank you for your service Drivesaslayer.

    I’ll answer to the question & not the machine. The column quill on any combo machine is ok for drilling or jigging holes using a drill chuck. Any...

    Steps weren’t appreciated in “old school” shops either. I’d bet the lathe hand wasn’t the one who thought cutting the keyseat before the finish turning operation was a good idea either (unless it was...

    Turning inside of .001” isn’t child's play, also isn’t really cheap when you think about it. It gets done every day though, plus holding the 64 or better finish.

    Agreed it’s easier to make given...
