    My first square dial was a tracer from United Airlines. I pulled off the tracer and did the conversion, but that was mid-90's. As I recall, it needed these parts: a cross slide and a base for the...

    If you are still looking, send me a PM. I have some extra chucks for a 10EE, at least one that takes interchangeable jaws.

    This thread goes on and on about something that is easy to solve, so why? I think everyone here will agree that the original system worked great as delivered. The issue is one of maintenance, which...

    Congratulations. Since the link is no longer working I did not see any photos of your lathe. Since it is a 1950 it is a square dial, and metric threading requires a set of change gears. The change...

    Your picture is a good size when I click on it. The one thing you are missing is that when you are editing your post, double click on each image. That will bring up a dialog box where you can...

    I just painted and overhauled a couple of very dirty 10EEs. Photos of one are in the other thread on painting, but I'd like to describe the process I use for all the parts. First, I don't use...

    The original paint on 10EEs is usually the best coat. My experience is that if you use a carbide scraper, you can shear off all the top coats leaving most (60%) of the original coat. Then sand,...

    Cal, what is different about the Sundstrand worm gear? I've had mine apart, but I did not try to interchange any parts, and it looked the same as other 10EE's

    My 10EE Sundstrand manual is not real helpful. It says "oil capacity - 3 to 5 gallons". Now that is quite a range in capacity. Perhaps the capacity depends on how the oil is drained, whether the...

    Removing the gear should not be a problem. Try a pair of small prybars on opposite sides.

    Once the gear is off, the pinion still will not come out until you remove one set of thrust bearings,...

    The only thing you did not mention is the overflow oil line at the rear of the headstock, behind the gearbox, back in the corner. If you have one. My 49 and 59 lathes have that line, but I don’t...

    Tooling doesn’t have to be bought new at high prices. I have a well-equipped shop, and 99% of the tooling was bought used or traded for. I only buy new when I need to. If you go to auctions and...

    That is correct, but for this rod I would not bother. The rod inserts through the ELSR end casting and the length is easy to measure once the old one is out. Just slide the new rod in, adjust the...
