    I've heard that the organic vapor cartridges give no warning when exhausted, thus the need for a supplied-air respirator.

    I'm in the process of making a supplied air respirator from a...

    I'd just keep the R8 spindle. I don't think it's worth the expense to convert. Buy good collets, you'll be glad you did.

    That's what I did. Still use machine lights though.
    I've been in too many shops that were like caves; it may not seem too bad at first, but by end of shift, the eyestrain tells.

    I ran quite briefly an SB 16". I'd put it in the hobby class. Another choice for the medium range is an older LeBlond Regal.
    You can't go wrong with a Monarch. I ran both a model 60 and model...

    It sounds as though the original may be available if you knew where. Keep in mind, a newly rebuilt spindle, with normal care, will run thousands of hours. What shape is the iron in? Does it have a...

    No one's mentioned the hot dog cart yet? Wasn't that SOP?

    Before the OP gets all in, How many here who've become successful in the game are now less machinist and mostly business man?

    I used to occasionally jig grind aluminum. Not often enough to research wheels but I did manage to get the job done. Wound up waxing the hell out of the wheel, redress and rewax when the finish or...

    Just to be contrary, jig grind the pins to size and position. On a more practical note, has the OP considered buying replacement rods? May be less expensive and easier.

    OT: Mini-Split A/C

    I think I've had enough of installing and removing the big window A/C. Think I'm going for a mini-split.
    Does anyone have experience with these things? Brands to avoid? Note A/C only, don't need...

    It does look like it's a nice machine. FWIW, I was told by a Monarch tech to avoid servo shift machines. Were they known for hydraulic problems?

    True. But it's highly entertaining if it's chasing somebody else.

    Also, I agree with John though I'm partial to lots of oil. Bacon grease works well and smells like breakfast.

    Since no one's brought it up, get a hot dog cart, or go straight to the top and get a food truck. Seriously, when it comes to a choice of work, I'd cast a bigger net. I spent about thirty years in...

    In an old job, we'd make splined driveshafts for aircraft generators (we made the parts for the rest of the machine, too). The general process was rough machine, core harden, finish machine, cut...

    If the OP really wants to learn about building quality in, read the old mil-Q-9858A, then think about ISO9001.

    I'm for using the lathe: use strap clamps on a faceplate and a conventional groove tool. It's quicker than a rotary table on the mill, 'specially if you have a small faceplate you can grab in the...

    Second vote for Monarch. I have a 16x30 Model C, vintage 1939, and it still is tight. I'm hoping a model 610 or 612 will fall into my lap. Even a Model 60. If money no object, have Monarch locate...

    You might have better luck with their plain steel rod- it's almost certainly so low in carbon as to virtually be iron.

    Thanks everyone for the input. Found a deal on a '73 International Cub with a Woods 59 finish mower. Perhaps a mow-off is in order.

    Another good general purpose formula to know is the Law of Sines. Useful to solve any triangle, and a right triangle is a special case with simplified calculations.
