    Just catching this sad news. Mr. Stevenson was a classic and he will be missed. His knowledge, vast at that, goes with him. When I get to the big shop in the sky I'll look him up in the Planer /...

    If you tilt the head about 45 degrees up away from the table you can push the vertical head back and have clear head room. At least I can on my 415.

    Old lathe face plates are a great source for drill press tables. They go cheap on ebay. I've also seen a big 4 jaw chuck used.

    The motor wad wired for 240 allready, but I guess the control transformer had not be changed over. It was originally a 480v machine, came out of a small engine plant in Corinth ms.

    Well figured it out. I took all the wires out of the secondary side. The machine, as I got it, had poles 1 & 2 and 3 & 4 jumpered. I changed the configuration to jumping 2 & 3, checked my output...

    Well the transformer is not what I would consider standard like a DC to DC transformer. Instead of a fixed set of inputs and various taps for different outputs, this jewel has one set of outputs and...

    You might want to move the belt grinder away from what has to be the nicest rug in any shop I have ever seen. The belt grinder will turn the entire area around it black in short order.

    Ah, I had not seen the thread where you had the same issue. The gear in mine was so worn it looked like a tapered pipe thread! I could easily push a collet straight into the thread so far as to...

    Hi Peter, thanks for the love. Is this type of failure common on these chucks? That chuck wouldn't grab any collet of mine, no matter the brand or age.

    If that is all you have to worry about count your blessings. Pretty sure the judge isn't going to give you the house in the upcoming divorce. For her sake I hope it's quick and painless.

    I paid Ken via PayPal about 15 days prior to his passing. I have emailed Daryl who I think is helping with the disposition of Ken's shop, no doubt a very unpleasant task.

    Just the other day, I took the shifting mechanisms off the top of the machine and if it was a snake it would have bit me. That doesn't mean I saw it right away, just that it was obvious.
