    Russ asked for some setup pictures, so here are a few. Sorry I did not take photos of the initial machining. But it was pretty straight forward: I surface the flat side and the bottom so that I...

    They adjust the fit of the flat tang at the end of the MT2 tool shank. They act as a rotation stop. There needs to be some slack since you need to be able to rotate the tool a bit when you seat it...

    The 1940 lathe was converted to an inch-metric machine when it was owned by Ferranti. The compound and carriage dials were both replaced with units that had planetary gears and transposed the travel...

    The '39 and '40 10EE's used an indicator and stop similar to the brochure picture, but I have never seen one exactly like the one in the brochure. Perhaps it was just the prototype. Here are the...

    I have a set of 10EE hold-downs that came from Mare Island shipyard, used to secure a 10EE to a pallet. They are free for the taking, either pick up or shipping if you pay the shipping cost.

    Why not just bring some ⅝” all thread and a grinder and cut it to length. You’re over-analyzing this. Just do it.

    Ross, I gather you don't like the side panels! Why? I have seen no issues, and Iike that they are light and easy to lift, unlike the covers on my Monarch lathe...

    Looks perfect for an rpc. I bought a similar motor locally, 15HP but not Reliance, and built an RPC for the new garage. It works great, the 10HP hard starting compressor starts great now.

    No, Don has it right. There is no need for a triple pin spanner. Sight glass bezels are easy to break loose either by tilting a punch or by tapping sideways with a punch. Its only worked for me...

    Ron, maybe you should contact Monarch and ask about it. The only VSR I know about used a small pot, the same as the speed control knob for forward. I am assuming that your machine is a MG not a...

    Also, don't overlook a larger Monarch. I don't have the space, but if I did, my second lathe would be a model 62 with the short bed. They often sell for about the same price as a 10ee.

    The other thing you need to do is watch the file size. On a Mac, the Preview aplication lets you "export" an image, and the dialog box lets you select the image quality. It has a slider. I always...

    MG round dials with flat belts aren't that common, so I wouldn't go searching for posts on the topic. Here is what I did when I needed a new belt: measured the old one. Went down to the locally...

    You might get more response if you included more information. Flat belt or V-belt? Idler pulley on left or right?

    OK, refilling the reservoir did it. It was about ½ liter down. Strange that the horizontal spindle eject was still working; do they have separate sensors for oil level? I still have to bleed it,...

    The switch on the operator's console appears to be working: when set for horizontal, the hydraulic pump works and it ejects the tool in the horizontal spindle. Also the vertical spindle rotates...
