    The spindle was 7 or 7.5HP. Sorry, I didn't save any of the feed trips or levers. I might have pictures of them though if that helps(?)

    Ok, I've got the manual scanned. It's a bigger file (73mb when compressed or so) so I might need to send it via Dropbox or something.

    The manual is from 1909, and is for a machine newer than the...

    Interesting piece behind the cross-slide. I'm guessing it's part of a follow rest since it's not attached to the cross-slide? I've seen some like that home-made, not an original cast iron one.

    If there isn't a press in solution for the headstock oilers, I'd make a pair of ball-toppers for them (easy first project). They're just little drop in plugs to keep the chips out that a lot of...

    Just a little disclosure on my part: I hope nobody thinks that when they are leveling a bed they are seriously torq-ing it into an abnormal position. Ideally, you are just trying to re-establish how...

    Old Logan's have the head casting aligned via one of the V-ways, so it would take a serious hit to throw it off IMO. Is the bed level?

    Logan's have thin bed castings. They do well for their class...

    That thing sure looks bare for tools and features, but you've got the jack-shaft assembly! You're ahead of some other first timers I've seen.

    If cutting walls/doors isn't an option, the only thing I can think of is dismantling the machine, which might be even MORE of a hassle depending on your skill-set.

    I've got a little beat up one in my tool box of the same design. I always thought it was a shop made piece. I think sometimes they would include a difficult feature in the design (like the tear-drop...

    Another one of my crazy pie-n-the-sky dreams here:

    Our shop apparently had a Whiton Gear Cutting machine in the past. When we bought the Randall Company in 2006, they still had the manual for the...

    I've got tool envy! I've been wanting to replace our oddball Elliott (British) 8x20 hydraulic surface grinder with an 8x24 American Iron equivalent. Those 4" are sorely missed at times.

    Looks like a bore gauge with some kind of outer depth stop?

    Edit: oh I see it now: It works perpendicular to the bore and the "depth stop" is the other side of the indicator. Looks to be...
