    Where you hiding the shaper ? or didn't it come yet ? :D

    That radii cutter is real nice. Digging the vice too.

    My favorite is the wrench !

    If time and money were no option, I'd probably take the time to get some bronze stock. 3/4"id with a 1 3/4" od and make them out...

    With work dragging on this week, I was slow getting anything done here. But finally getting to it to handle the square drive inserts.

    I did very much like the idea of using a mill, but in the end...

    Anything can be hardened or not. In general hardware is rated by grade of steel, like grade 8 and such. Which I would say is un-hardened. Think how you can round off a bolt head, or mushroom it by...

    In double checking mine, the ID of protector at nose tip is not smaller than the threads. I must have mis-remembered that :D. Its just threaded through like yours.

    In nut to adapter ratio size...

    If you chip or break the cutting edge might be a while hand stoning it out :D. Just refreshing an unbroken edge its fine. But grinding goes a bit quicker whether chipped edge or not.

    Good point.

    I also recall a similar explanation from neanderthal mach. His post is a little long and hard to read, but the core of that particular point is in the last paragraph of what he wrote:...

    Real nice.

    Is this for using collets ? If so, do the collets go directly into the spindle taper, or is there and adapter ?

    Reason I'm asking, is I see just a touch of spindle thread sticking...

    Where you at with the rebuilding process, or getting stuff stripped down ? Any cool pics ? :D

    I have been eagerly awaiting news, but I didn't want to bug you about it. :D

    A lost Pacemaker purchase is what led me to find this Series 61. Having it, I feel great appreciation for it, as well...

    That is awesome ! I like that a lot. Wish i could incorporate that on mine.

    I didn't forget, or give up the idea either. Just didn't get that far yet :D. The thread you were thinking of is here:...

    I'd prefer zig zag as well, but what do you do, fill it in, then cut a zig zag ? Or cut crosses into existing single straight line.

    This is not my thread, but I will surely address oil system. In...

    Sure ! But if I'd known I'd make it this far, might take better care of myself. Could be a catch 22 though, maybe we made it this far by being reckless. :D

    I'm not a 9" expert, so consider that really. Need to confirm what I say here with a 9" owner. What I'm saying I know applies to 13 - 16", but from what I have seen, I believe applies to 9 and 10" as...

    The grand total of mine I put in the 400 lb range. And I've had it off and apart to know.

    Based on your beast compound rest/tool post set up, being rather larger than mine, I would think your tail...

    Hey ! Some of us are at the age we need to think more and man-handle less. :D

    About a month ago I thought I blew a hip out after a real nice date night with the wife. Could barely walk for a week....

    I didn't bring it up yet in this thread, but in my other thread we were discussing totally divorcing the carriage lube system from the apron. That talk started about here:

    I was thinking the clutch lever was gone from yours, it didn't cross my mind you might have the inside collar. Give me a day or two, lets see how I do.

    On another note :D, you had pulled the apron...

    I have four major rebuilds after I finish this machine. I've made a decision, I think :D. No more new machines till I clear some floor space. That plus a bunch of smaller stuff I need to get squared...

    My series 61 from 1956 does not have rapid traverse. But I do have the push pin towing mechanism.

    I've heard some find the push pin mechanism cumbersome to hold the pin while rolling the apron...

    That's not a terrible idea at all. With the mill you could use a rotary chuck with degree wheel for the 4 points. Little bit better control fine feeding cross and long. . .

    I was thinking a little...

    Dammit, I wish you would have piped up sooner ! :D

    Googling around I did find some offerings, and broach cut stuff. I didn't exhaust my search, but nothing would be a straight up replacement...
