    We've had guys taking to long with their morning toilet time. I doubt we can legally lock the door on the bathroom (:rolleyes5:), but that's the equivalent with the chair thing. On the other side of...

    This is why castings are often used for 'C' shaped pieces like machine frames. The shape hasn't been forced into place like it is when bar stock is rolled out.

    Manufactures instructions to "grease ways" is a sore topic. IMO they learned it's a bad idea as most machines made in the last 30-40 years are all oiled per manufacturers instructions.

    Not familiar with that specific model, but the only disadvantage I can see to starting with a first class machine is that on the small tool-room lathes like South Bend, Logan, etc. that most people...

    A suit coming in and deciding people are "sitting too much... take away the chairs" is a childish management move.

    All the shops I've been too have chairs. I've had guys complain that tools were...

    Not all surface plates are the same shade of grey, so going by the visual look of the blue alone gives me a hard time.

    Easiest way I've found to see how thick/thin the blue is is in how it prints....

    Cool to see a regular tool room lathe with integrated feed disengagement. You don't often see that outside of turret and other production lathes.

    That's a great price IMO. Won't take up much...

    ??? That's interesting.

    Looks like it can be held in a vise. Something for clock-making? OOOOld Thread mic?

    I got a sheet of Garolite phenolic from McMaster awhile back to play with.
    McMaster-Carr
    It's graphite impregnated but reinforced with cotton fiber, so it's the Canvas type. They have a variety of...

    IMO it's not all that different than deburing a part. Whatever your method (power or wet stone) just hold it at a consistent angle and keep the piece moving so you don't dwell in one spot. With...

    "Cheap tools" have been around long before Horrible Freight hit the ground. They might have been made in the USA, but they had to service the market for something to get you buy on a budget somehow....

    Thanks for the pictures!

    We had talked about it in class, but it's interesting to see phenolic in use as wear strips. Is there a deciding factor that the OEM manufacturer would go with phenolic...

    Might be a different gen of control than ours was. Sounds like a battery is in order.

    We've done it, but all of our lift trucks rock side to side which is an inconvenience. Don't forget to lower it while you're away. We've had stuff get damaged a couple times because a careless...

    Your's is using the DX-32 type control correct? If I remember correctly (been a couple years since I played with one of these machines), they don't save automatically. There's a "save tools" key that...

    Can't say for certain without dimensions, but the arbor support LOOKS just like the ones on my 1936 Cincinnati 2L.

    We have a couple rotary's like that and a couple lathe cross slides and compounds with similar feature. The nub is for your thumb to push while holding the other handle for a little extra steadiness....

    I added ball bearings to a steady a few years back and it worked OK for quick and rough work, but in general it's not going to be as accurate as solid tips. Solid tips means there's only one moving...

    I'm a Leatherman guy due to their warranty, and the pliers and screw drivers on them make them my "bad habit" tool (the tool I use too often instead of the ones I SHOULD use). Their blades hold up...

    True! It seems odd that they would make such a close copy of an American style tool room lathe to export to American prior to the war. After the war when they were getting their country back up and...
