    Your experience is the same as mine and I suspect others as well. Unfortunately, arc stability on thin materials is exactly where the new IGBT welders really shine.

    Personally that lathe is the longest I have ever seen. I am 75 now and I remember my father telling me these long horizontal lathes have been pretty much replaced by vertical lathes several stories...

    If you have only 3 wires, it is a single phase motor. If so, throw the motor away and start over........it's much less expensive.

    You should double check that the motor is 440 only. That would be unusual. Pop the cover on the motor, if you have 12 wires, it is 208 or 440. This would allow you to wire the field coils in parallel...

    I received confirmation that all these external parts are no longer available from DoAll with the single example of the Pusher Part # 5-013007. This is still being made. The quoted price FOB is...

    I have a 10k, which is a newer SB 9. A modern QCTP is the best mod you could do for a SB 9. It makes a huge difference. I use a Multi-fix A size. They are superb, but a bit more money than the Aloris...

    I owned one many years ago. They are unique and well worth having if you have the space. They are very scarce now. I used mine almost exclusively for faceplate work.

    I'm sure Newall, Accurite, Mitutoyo and other name brands are good, perhaps even better than some imports, but that does not mean these Chinese imports are also not good. I bought a new R8 Mill in...

    First, I would not sell the cooler. Even the newer IGBT non-transformer machines still need coolers. Coolers cost well over $300 and you never see them used. I'm sure that your welder is a good...

    These saws are a bit scarce everywhere, but these models have been made for many, many years in multiple configurations. Yes, spare parts from DoAll are expensive. Unfortunately, many of the parts...

    The stock should be tapered first to, I think, 3/4 in per foot and then threaded for male threads. For female threads, it is best to taper the bore with a specific tapered reamer first before...

    The 1612 refers to throat depth and vertical height. Throat meaning blade to frame dimension and height meaning max height of work possible. On 2 wheel saws throat is effectively the diameter of the...

    I received confirmation that these parts are no longer available from DoAll with the single exception of the Pusher/Work holding jaw new PN 5-013007. I have not yet received a quote.
