    Thanks all. On edit, my surface grinder is a #2, not 2B. Sounds like the best solution for me is to stick with the set up i have.

    I was clearly showing my ignorance. I thought an E-stop simply cut power and was not aware it also stopped the spindle against inertia. I guess i was just looking for a recommendation for a big old...
  9. looking for a recommendation for a lathe on/off switch with emergency stop

    Rewiring the monarch 16CY. The original motor starter looks to be fine. Could also use the original on/off switch but want to rig an E-stop as well. I'm thinking something with an integral E stop...

    It is sort of a perverse twist of fate that the best machines (older, heavier, more rigid) are the most affordable as long as you can move them and power them. The great thing about taking up this...

    I don't really know what to make of the chuck. I've been advised to learn how to dial in a 4 jaw and resist the impulse to get e three jaw scroll chuck and i've taken that advice to heart. Having...

  17. Is a camlock chuck with only two mounting pins common?

    The lathe has a D1-6 spindle but the chuck adapter plate only has two pins. Feels...
