    Most any machine shop should be able to make one for you. Have you checked the runout in the socket in the spindle to make sure that it is not out of round? You can usually find used ones on Ebay.

    I had the same winch and it was good for about 3 or 4 tons, any more and you would wear out pretty quickly.

    The threads are imperial threads per inch. SPDL is the change gear that goes on top driven from the spindle, SCR is the change gear that goes on the lead screw. The lathe probably dates from around...

    3600 rpm motor is way too fast for the lathe, even 1750 is too fast. You don't want any more than 600 rpm for the fastest spindle speed for a 14" lathe with Babbitt bearings.

    It looks like there is a screw for adjustment of the table where it hooks over at the top, that would need to be tight first. You should check for squareness between the table top and the front of...

    Do you have a 48" lathe or a 14" lathe. I think .001" clearance for a 14" lathe is good and go up from there.

    It looks like a Greaves Klusman lathe that was a flat belt drive that someone was converting to gears.

    It is a number 24 vertical mill and will have a #10 Brown & Sharpe taper spindle. It is cheap but it is too far gone as far as I am concerned. Too many missing original parts and too much damage.

    Yes, you can remove the caps and spindle and the lathe will be fine although it is much more convenient to stitch the belt than to remove the spindle to get the belt on.

    Joe, I could use some pictures of the carriage weight also how it hangs on the carriage. Mine does not have one and with the crossmembers in the center of the bed, I didn't think it used one.
