    Yes it looks like it would do the job. But it doesn't sit flush, unlike the Pexto. It would be in the way most of the time. Too bad the tapers don't go the other direction.

    Tom, if you search the WIAD threads I am sure you will find an answer to your questions. A few years back I added ELSR and VSR to a WIAD machine that did not come with them originally. I had all...

    The holders arrived yesterday, the box had been retaped, but everything inside was fine. USPS is really slow right now, even though these were shipped priority mail.

    I have an Acu-Rite DRO and scales I would like to sell. They came from a Bridgeport. I have no idea what model they are but the price will be very reasonable.

    I have to admit I have no idea what E355/U2 collets are, but I need to ask, why does the drawbar have anything to do with it? When I tighten collets, that is done in the vise before mounting the...

    Have you checked with Hardinge? I thought all Sjogren chicks were rated for 4000 rpm.

    Bruce, that is perfect. Thank you for your help.

    Do you have any theory as to why the adapter table is so long, relative to the rotary table mounting ears?

    Starrett supplies almost all the parts for their tools, even those that were designed in the 1800's. I visited the factory a few years ago, and was taken for a tour by a young machinist. We went...

    Bruce, thanks for taking the time to do the measuring and photography. I will not make an exact copy, since the fp2nc table has 63mm spacing for t-slots instead of the 45mm on the fp2. Why it is...

    Cal, since you are a moderator, can you contact the support staff for PM? All that has to be done is to modify the file that has the data and up the sizes.

    i.e. change bmp, gif, jpeg, pdf, png,...

    Jim, what is important is that you solved the problem and the machine will be properly aligned. What else remains, once the tailstock is done?

    My '59 WIAD machine had a single 7510 in the rear. I think yours does too, and the double angular contact bearings came along later. If you look at this thread:

    Very cool. Mine is #7552, 7/1940, so only 231 Monarch lathes were produced between. Please post some photos. The '39 lathes are quite interesting, a lot of them have some of the features shown in...

    HI Bruce,
    can you provide some additional information: what is the model number and the dimensions incl. thickness? Additional photos that show front and back would be much appreciated. I will be...

    I think it is more plausible that ductile iron was available before 1943. Especially to defense contractors like Monarch. Too bad Peter Haas is not participating in the forum any more, he had an...

    Great question. I have owned round dial lathes which had interacted with a forklift and had bent apron levers. And I have straightened them.

    Old school time: get a Starrett or any other brand of mechanical rev counter and do your own calibration. I would aim for 5% accuracy, but you could do better.

    Here's one for $10:

    The ball levers used on the apron are all ductile iron and they do bend quite a bit.
