    That's my biggest beef with modern lathes and DSG lathes. There are a lot of nice things that come with long carriage wings... Indicator protection, hand protection, way protection, longer service...

    Woodworkers, color me not surprised. If it's not their precious wood, it must be "spoilboard".

    Don't you have a lathe? Adapter is a 10 minute job, double female tapped piece.

    Ball bearings contact in a line too. As do tapered rollers. Bronze bearings have huge contact patches. I'd sleep like a baby with those bearing stresses.

    P.S.

    How many of you have seen a lathe...

    Interesting how though they changed pretty much everything else, the compound on my WWII Sidney is the same. :)

    Shame on the HBM. Can't save everything though.

    Man, if I'm ever up in NY can I sit in the sunlight and admire your shop? I love that wood strip wall.

    I lifted my Sidney by the spindle with a bar sticking through. With 3 big bearings... uh yeah, don't think that they are going to Brinnel any sitting static with one load application. Besides that,...

    Yup. Dad made the mistake of not doing that on his Lagun that got jammed in a crash, bent the leadscrew slightly.

    Love it. One second look at one image and the mind immediately starts to think of all the things that could do. Takes a lot more than one minute to consider them all though.

    Yep, contact Doc for advice.

    P.S., I saw that one stay up for a while. Looked like a screaming deal to me. Hopefully it treats you well.

    Gross. Parts washer is the appropriate way to clean it. Sealed bearings, or just grease it on an appropriate call. You're the one doing the maintence. If you prefer to grease is a long interval...

    OP,

    I have a 3CH Hy-duty. Ask away if you have any questions.

    P.S. The vise is a POS. I built a new one. I can share the design if requested.

    Having used a lathe as an HBM, that would do a much better job. But it looks like a shitty lathe. Forget turning anything between centers...

    Basically a large diameter lathe and a HBM. Still, I...

    Chuck,

    My mistake. Browsing too late at night I guess, I was thinking quill housing. Yes, I would try to bore it out. Not line boring, just toss it in a 4 jaw. I don't think the oil grooves will...

    What a great post! I have so much respect for those draftsmen, being able to do perfect pictorial views all by hand. I think I realised just how good they were when I was looking through a massive...

    Neat. Not very well thought out though. It's got a plenty rigid top bed, but the lower bed is very noodley. No heavy cuts on that one.

    You should start a new thread.

    But, I would line-bore your quill. Doable on a lathe. Trivial if you know someone with an HBM or horizontal mill, especially since it has the flat on the back....

    I don't think you can fit 1.5" through a D1-3, so it must be the 6. The 18 speeds were heavier machines anyway. It's not unreasonable for a 14.5" swing machine by any means. Especially when today you...
