  1. 1942 M/G 10EE cranky in the morning, no start at first.

    Well, cranky at any time really. We have an old but serviceable round-dial that I dusted off and put back into production a little while ago. It was running fine and then one time I turned it off...

    Re-plate nickel handles

    I'm finally reassembling a little old Index milling machine after paint and the rusty and slightly beat up handwheels don't really work aesthetically with the new paint. I asked a local polishing...

    I'm still hoping for that, but while waiting I'm still picking at it.
    I've been digging through the F and R contactor circuit and pretty confident the basics of that look good and the problem is...

    I meant latching in this context as "will remain actuated after they are closed" and they are not doing that.
    I'm unable to meaningfully measure the F/R coil voltage as they fire for only brief...

    Noma is still shipping these bearings made in Japan. I just got a set for $72.26 including all 6 idler bearings, tax, and shipping.
    Installed them today, very nice. Also nice to have the sealed...

    OK, so progress:
    Got C4 hooked up, easy once I figured out it wasn't actually C3.
    Determined I had a bad thyratron tube and swapped it out.
    Determined half of my EL1C was dead so swapped that as...

    Early 50s WIAD machine.

    I seem to recall reading that the relay has unusual characteristics. The coil is very large for what it does at the very least and need to have some particular...

    Got it, makes perfect sense. I guess I just forgotten the tach only reads in forward.
  9. Thanks, I had noticed the nothing works in...

    Thanks, I had noticed the nothing works in neutral part but wasn't sure that was how things were supposed to be. Good to know that part of the machine works correctly. :-)
  10. That was what made sense, but how does it...

    That was what made sense, but how does it indicate what that speed is without running the motor to turn the tach?

    Also interesting, this machine is lacking the usual drum switch in the headstock...
  11. 10EE FFR relay options? Base casting? EE34036 needs help

    In matter best not discussed in detail the base casting got pretty badly damaged. I started putting it back together with nickel rod and that will work but it's a lot of hours and expensive rod. I...
  12. New to me 10EE ser39962, with drive issues (of course)

    Hey guys (and gals), I know you have all seen the plaintive cries of WIAD owners already, but I could use a little help.

    I knew this lathe had electrical issues, but I also knew it was priced...
