    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...

    Looks great! So nice to see an old machine get treated properly with no repair spared!:D That looks like a close fit getting it into the garage too.

    I like the Warhawk theme you're going for. I...

    Well the REAL test will be to put a nice B&S test indicator on the table and jog the table from one side to the other and stop the indicators needle on a tenth.:D;) Cheapo indicators don't work was...

    IMO this would be a good lathe for a CNC shop for deburing parts, polishing, and all the other little simple things that might take place while the other machines are doing their thing.

    Cosmetic "defect" from casting. Doesn't effect the casting functionally or otherwise. Often stuff like that will get filled with bondo, paint, be ground clean, or just ignored all together. If this...

    Did you get the seal packing issue on the Beast resolved?

    A lathe in your garage is worth two online.:D

    Agree'd with the above sentiment. You might have been able to get something cheaper, but there's no Blue Book value on these things. You get what you...

    I need an excuse to touch up my big straight edges (6' and 4' dovetail), but I doubt I'll be able to break away during the week. I'll give you a call.

    "Push" Lube Pump for Zerk Base

    Simple off the shelf solution. I bought one of these for our Delta Rockwell lathe that has zerks all over the place.

    I don't know about your specific application,...

    South Bend re-manufactured their own machines at times. I've always got the impression that the "standard" for what passed at the factory would vary at times depending on when it was made, how backed...

    Just being a spoil-sport here:

    Given how common the practice is and the lack of skill required to do it, it seems to me that polishing spinning items (by lathe or...

    In regards to heat: I've had decent luck brazing cast iron with a decent sized rose-bud rather than a small tip. If the material can take the heat, don't be afraid to heat up a large portion of the...

    Ran into the same problem a few months back. Tried to cut a heavy knurl into some handles and the program took way too long to produce a texture too shallow to actually grip anything. We went back to...

    Bear in mind that with the solid surface the bed sits on, it needs to be leveled (I think that's what Richard was alluding too). Consider how much we put into leveling a complete lathe to make an...

    I've run into those types before. IMO they are so eager to have a conversation that they just hope you don't know that they don't know what they are talking about. I drive a classic car on a daily...

    Another option would be the spring loaded ball top oilers. That's what Hendey used on my old apron front. They're made to press in the same as the flip-top oilers. The screws are a cheap and simple...

    Looks familiar... We might have had one at some point but let it go with a machine we sold. I tend to stick with Jacobs and Albrecht as you can get kits and parts for (most of) them. Other brands you...

    It looks to me like they added threads to cap off the holes and keep swarf out of them. If anything, I'd JB weld the unwanted holes up and re-drill them where and to what size they need to be, but If...

    If you end up with left-over line shaft components, keep me in mind! I've got several projects that are in need of properly sized hangers, pulleys, clutch's, etc.

    It's frustrating how many people don't understand the difference between value and market-value. It doesn't matter what you think something is worth, if no-one in the world is going to fork up the...
