    I don't know about tapping any holes, but you'll have to drill and counterbore (at least) one extra hole for the double tumbler GB.

    The screws go thru the bed into the GB, so you shouldn't need to...

    You probably don't have a "feel" for your lathe right now, so what you are saying by "binding" may be a normal thing. The wicks should put the same amount of pressure on the spindle in either...

    The spindle oil system is one of the few non flow-thru lubrication systems on the lathe. In other words, it reuses the oil, so you won't see it drop much. You'll know it is not getting oil when it...

    Try to clean it up as best as you can, but I think that it is a lost cause. The groove under the bearing shows me that the felt went south decades ago and the spring was running directly on the...

    What's wrong with the bench it is already on?

    If you do do this, you'll have to insure that the 3/4" plate is level in both directions, and I mean level level, like 0.0005" in 12" level - or, a...

    What kind of tonnage does your press have?

    Also, was there any rust under the pulley or bull gear? It shouldn't have been that difficult to remove. With a key, it should have been a light press...

    I knew of the numbering change in the late 40's. Once JackHass indicated that the two serial numbers were identical, I figured that another change occurred in the later years of the company. I...

    The problem that I see with your method (since you only have one reference), is that you don't know how far from your target you are until "WHAM", your end mill pops in. Did you overshoot your goal?...

    That's not the "official" serial number. The official serial number is on the lower right corner of the top of the bed between the first pyramid and the first scraped flat area - where your tail...

    The number you gave doesn't read like a heavy 10.

    Even if you're able to drill the stuff, you'll still have to tap a hole for a set screw. All that work just to have a tap break off in the hole (a blind hole, at that).

    There...

    You don't say which double tumbler gearbox you have. I would use the double tumbler (especially if it is the wide range version), simply because it is easier to use. Both can cut metric threads. ...

    When I use hardened stuff like that, I put them in a fire, run them up to red heat, then let the fire cool to room temp. The result is some very nice,easy to turn steel.

    How skilled are you at grinding? If Aloris does it and screws it up, they will send you a new holder. If you do it and screw it up you have a new paperweight.

    It's not a 10L. And the felts that it DOES have are fairly important (like those above the spindle bearings). I agree that the rebuild book probably won't help - I don't think lathes this old are...

    Wait... Hold on...

    In the "Post Your Serial Numbers" thread, you say that your catalog number is CL1006Z. Where did you get that number, because it doesn't correspond to any H10 that I have seen.
