    So... You don't know how much the part is running out in the chuck, you don't know if the drill is on center or even close, and, you don't mention any spotting tool you're using so I assume there...

    Well, I'll say that I have made many parts from sketches on napkins, envelopes and the like, which had clear dimensions and tolerances. The parts were made to spec, the parts worked, I got paid. ...

    OK, thank you for clarifying. But so what! The drawing is a bit wonky. Lots of other indications the guy who drew it doesn't know how to use whatever system he used to draw this properly. Notice...

    Am I missing something, what is all the confusion about? The grove is described with an ID, OD, depth, and corner radius call outs. The plate itself is given a diameter and a thickness, both...

    Here's a thread with some pics and video of a manufacturing model. As stated above, no lead screw nor conventional tail stock, but rather a powered turret. Other minor differences as well I'm sure....

    Wow, those are really cool! Bullard was better known for their vertical turret lathes, or VTL's, but they did also make HBM's. The style of machine depicted in the ash trays seems later model, 60's...

    I can't remember exactly how the TA works on a 10EE, but on many lathes it works by moving the cross slide screw, which is held axially only by a thrust bearing in the TA and is therefore allowed to...

    I'm not sure what the seller means by "worn out". The usual problem with the back gear is broken teeth on one or more of the gears in that system caused by misuse, NOT wear. He may mean that the...

    I agree it's a Dunlap/Craftsman, but I think he's being a bit generous with his rating. I'd say poor to very poor, unless you will be cutting mostly wood or other very soft materials,and working to...

    What is it about an end mill holder that makes you think it's unsuited for holding a drill? Is it only because the box it came in says "end mill holder"? What makes a collet better? As long as you...

    Oh Yeah! Both of the links you provided in the post work just fine for me.

    The "normal" ones at the top of the page still do not work however.

    Thanks.
