    Our shop's in a 10,000sqft room and we have 8 misc. speakers tied back to a pair of amps listening to Pandora. When I say "misc.", I mean ANYTHING that isn't blown out. Most are old home stereo...

    If you attempted to fix it, I'd worry about the liability when it does fail. I'm not in the construction/architecture world, but OEM responsibility has been known to vanish as soon as someone starts...

    I must be in a really hole-in-the-wall sector of industry because it's very rare that I hear about banned jewelry in other shops or injury's related to rings (except online). I hear and have seen...
  4. Well if it's 6, 9, or 12 speeds, I'm sure I could...

    Well if it's 6, 9, or 12 speeds, I'm sure I could make it work. I'd mainly want to ditch the overhead gear box as it's negating the 3 speed cone pulley, but also just because I'd like to run on...

    I paid $500 for my 6' Brown & Sharpe and it's going to need some work, but I also had to buy it from a place back east because tools like it aren't common around here.

    IMO they will have a higher...

    I think either would be worth a shot. It just comes down to how you want to spend your time. Personally I would go for the K&T and buy any attachments I can as needed (which is what I've had to do...

    Induma's are good mills, but parts and support of any kind are non-existent here in the states. I actually scrapped one last year. Too much wrong that would involve too much custom fabrication and...

    IMO, for every bit of effort you put into scraping, you need to put twice was much into inspecting your machine/parts and knowing where and how much material you need to remove.

    Ok so it isn't two sets of back gears, it's a single 3 speed back gear. I'm catching on.
  10. Disregarding the drive all, The reason I think 12...

    Disregarding the drive all, The reason I think 12 is that you have 3 speeds via the cone pulley, then one hi/lo back gear multiples that to 6, and the other hi/lo back gear multiplies that to 12,...
  11. Yes I believe it is a double back gear. I could...

    Yes I believe it is a double back gear. I could probably make the drive all work better by running a wider flat belt between it and the headstock, but my plans are to remove the drive-all unit and...
  12. I'm not sure what the OEM speed range was on this...

    I'm not sure what the OEM speed range was on this lathe, but I imagine it's similar to my 16" Hendey and somewhere around 600 RPM was the top speed. The original Jack-shaft of a 14" W-B lathe...

    Making the pulley slightly larger would also enable me to possibly use it as a foundry pattern later on too, but that's all dependent on if low volume iron casting ever becomes easier to source:(.

    This deal is still in the works.

    What HP of motor would be appropriate for a lathe of this size? 1HP? I'm thinking about possibility of replacing the current owners motor/gearbox drive with an...

    We're in the piney woods just north of Houston TX where the humid coast meats the Louisiana Swamps.

    We put our air compressor outside to minimize noise, even though we have lots of humidity and...

    This lathe went to the scrap yard today. I still have a few external components that I saved off of it like the chip pan and coolant sump, tool holding items, etc., but anything integral to the...

    Another question would be where to start in making sure I get the right size of transformer for our application? 110v would be ideal, but we can put in a 240 or 440 drop if needed. Is it based on...

    The press I would use would be similar to one like this.

    I suppose. That would prove the concept then if/when we burn it out we can buy a better generic resistance transformer. The press's I have in mind are old industrial textile ones used for stuff like...
  21. Replacing a burned out resistance welder

    We have an older Miller hand held resistance spot welder that stopped working. Took it to our local welding supply and they said the transformer was dead and it was an obsolete model so we should...

    ^^^ Yup. This one's probably an old Singer. Sometime around WW2 the stamped sheet metal ones became the norm, so this was likely before then. The round belt pulley likely puts it even earlier....

    I'm in the boat of letting the armature hobby guys go to another site. Not "against" them or anything, just think the internet-world is big enough without re-inventing the wheel.

    IMO a simple...

    I've seen the set-up in old books, but don't have any scanned images. IMO it was an option around the turn of the century for engine shops to use a large lathe as an HBM in a pinch. It's one reason...

    Not sure of the maker, but it seems to me that is was not too uncommon for rebuilders to have their own straight edges made back when foundrys and pattern shops were still plentiful. Whoever made...
