    With the ELSR option (that switch thing on the thread.feed select housing) the "N" might disable the drive - it does on the square dial ELSR. With the control in L or R the lever on the rod passing...

    I'd bet the problem is a simple one, myself. Open the 1/4 round top and take a look, you can see most all of the gearbox from there..

    Way back in the dawn of the computer industry my company had need for a lot of floppy disk sleeves. We had a bunch printed up (80K? something like that) and only one customer ever commented on the...

    To go from feed to thread move the right shift lever to thread, the tombstone knob to LH or RH, then the left hand lever to thread. It's helpful to pull the spindle over lightly when chifting a...

    Another possibility is that the controls are out of time with the gears. Someone cowboy'd my 10EE and the timing was off on the A-B and C-D-E levers. I reset it by working the controls to find the...

    + on Rovi ID. I use them and like them. If you don't need them I would like to talk about buying them from you.

    Normally there's a part that mounts to the end of the spindle and the closer indexes into this part. For the JFK the mount has a set of holes and the closer a pin that indexes into one of them, for...

    Remember that the difference between the threading input to the gearbox and the feed input starts above the gearbox at the gearing on the end of the headstock. I'd start isolating the problem there...

    The only way I can see to do this would be to shear the top from the cammed portion - i.e. break off around the square socket. Take a hell of a twist to do that. Is that what happened?

    Probably? The stud mounts to the chuck and the cam goes into the spindle. Since I don't think you could shear a cam I suspect you're talking about the studs? Here's a link to MacIt's page selling...

    Mac-it lists studs for $12, cams for about $30.

    I recently filled up on D1-3 studs - Toolmex was cleaning up and had them listed for $3 apiece.

    You probably could have led with this, but I'm not sure how it would have changed the diagnosis. At this point I think you need to look at the AP relay (I think we've misidentified the relay in the...

    Your reference is the second I've heard of. The first was advertised as a D1-3 and it wasn't.

    Now you *have* to tell us about this lathe. Chances are that I saw it if it was in an auction since I live just south of Abq.

    Was the lathe working properly in the low speed range until you saw it misbehave? I.e. this is a new problem.

    I'm working on recollection, but maybe the Bijur B3003 check valve #5? I think it takes 5 pounds to open and so would limit the line pressure to 5#. Probably improper to call it a regulator... my...

    First - you need to have a descriptive title for a thread. "Help" isn't. "Help choosing a lathe" might be. "Help finding a lathe in Texas, willing to travel 600 miles" would be better.

    My understanding is that the current standard from Monarch is for a Bijur 5 psi check into the top apron sump, this so that the rest of the system sees just the peak 5 psi pressure. As I recall the...

    It's entirely possible that the hole was misdrilled by the fitter. You could check by feeling for an intersecting hole at/near the bottom of that one, I don't expect you'll find one.
