    Thanks for the link. I have checked out these pages but I do not think there is an explanation of the differences in the models that are referred to in the text. Maybe someone can shed a bit more...

    Thats a nice looking pacemaker, and not too large to be a keeper either! I would always find room for that if the zip shifting controls work. The zip shift machines are heavier than the standard...

    The old Western machine company had a plant in Holland Michigan. I had the opportunity to get in the building shortly before it was destroyed, probably around 2002. The place had been out of...

    Not that surprised that you see low amps on one leg of the machine motor draw with an unbalanced converter. Still should not make the machine motor stop running after a few minutes. The motor...

    The 2:1 thing is not a hard fast rule in my experience. I have built a few converters and there are a lot of variables that factor in around the construction of the converter and the load on the...

    Sounds good. I have both of those, probably will go with the ISO-68 after flushing out the goo. Thanks.

    Thanks Mike! I think I came across this manual and completely missed the lubrication notes on the drawing! Must have been a senior moment. I am guessing that medium machine oil would be about an...

    Thought I would add a couple of pics to perhaps jog a memory or two. Serial on the drill is 3L 635. Sorry about the quality of the images, borrowed a camera. The shop is also a mess as usual. As...

    Amen to that. The fever has struck me more than once though, and probably will again. Only age, memories of bad move experiences and sore bones have slowed the pace (thank goodness).

    A second on Steve Summers. I like his problem solving attitude and the ability to accomplish nice work without having every tool and gimcrack at his disposal. Of course Abom79 and Bcbloc02 are also...

    Nice to see an old war horse looking this good. I have a #3 that is still in its work clothes. Runs sweet though!

    Looks to be well tooled, that is a real plus. It will also really remove metal. Downsides are lack of convienence (for quick setups), weight (to get moved), and price. Only you know how much you...

    I like turret lathes for the sort of work that you are talking about. Rigid setup, ideal for short bar work. Fast and powerful. (Have a Warner Swasey #3 in the shop). However, as said many times on...

    I am kind of curious. How would the speed setting on the motor control work then? Would there be series of contact pads that could be individually “closed” on a large rheostat that would change the...
