    My cy states once a week. As mentioned the clutch pulley has two taper bearings, similar to auto axle bearings. The grease zert is on the back side of the pulley between pulley and head box,...

    That is the case. There are bolts from the bottom. I was thinking about the same thing. If you do have your ways ground, I would love to hear the story. CY's have flame hardened ways,...

  6. Monarch Dauber, Dobber, Tail Stock Hole 1/2" diameter

    So a thread came up with questions of unknown holes on a Monarch CY. I own a 1943 16CY and my ears perked up.

    One of the mystery holes was the 1/2" hole on top of the tail stock.

    So for the Dauber, I contacted a gentleman that manufactures Daubers for other lathes. He had a drawing of a 10EE dauber that appears to work with my CY, 1/2" diameter well on the tailstock.

    My Stock has the same whole and also two tapped holes on the flat below. The tapped holes I'm sure are not original. A light? Something mounted?

    #1 I don't believe I have that one in my 1943 CY.

    #2 I do have that hole but I haven't figured out what that is for as well.

    #3 That is the oil reservoir for apron bearings and gears. I had...

    Just glue the Rulon on where the numbers are and scrape to flat, it is already well aligned so if you keep it even you should be good. I would apply it with the gib in place, then take a knife and...

    I can sympathize with wanting a bearing list for the 10EE. I made a complete list for a CY 16" and posted a while back. Not helpful but to your point about Monarch not supplying bearing information,...

    I haven't measured the bed ways but I agree, the best (easiest and most real work method) is to see what the resulting cut is on your lathe. Of course this is a "sum" of all errors on your lathe. If...

    CY's are not designed to be run backwards. They can, and you can do very light work running backwards but it is not recommended.

    Mainly because of the design of the "shaft clutch" (the cog that...
