    It's a 344-ZN 9" Model A with underneath motor drive.

    From the 1943 catalog.

    Used by a school. That explains why there are no pics of the compound slide. Probably has seen a couple of crashes in its lifetime. I can see a groove in the ways from the saddle even with the low...

    The manual says to use SAE 30. Do you have the manual? If not, check SBLatheman here for one. He can also suggest the oil types for your lathe.

    The carriage clutch can be adjusted and the crossfeed gibs can be loosened (or tightened). Perhaps you can tell us what your concerns are.

    What other info do we need? Practically everything.

    Loosen the green nut on the banjo shown in your first pic. That should allow the banjo to move easily, disengaging the gear. It should slide now - if not, it could be frozen. It's just an idler,...

    That bothered me a little, sitting here typing on a very similar desk, a desk that I love! It's built like a battleship and the drawers still slide as smooth as silk. My desk is a larger model,...

    I recommend that you put the chip tray under BOTH feet. Put the left edge as close to the headstock foot as you can. That way, more chips will hit the tray.

    Did you spray any, or just brush it?

    Also, good idea to get a chip tray as BIG as possible for your lathe. Chips have a habit of going EVERYWHERE!

    EDIT: You should have gotten the 25" x 47"...

    I would say that your original leadscrew was replaced sometime over the years. Or, it could have been a special order lathe, setup for a single, simple process (but the QCGB seems to refute that).

    The four contact point on the carriage should be in the same plane. The backside gib doesn't hold down the carriage, per se (like you are thinking), but instead just prevents it from being...

    Yes, those are 5C collets. They are "extended range", or "large diameter" style collets. Also know as "step collets". Some of them look like they are "machine your own size" style collets.

    They are locked when the gear shifting handle is UP. Also, you could disengage the entire gear train by putting the reverse lever in neutral (I think that the 9's have a neutral). It is that lever...

    You can probably make the knob for the cross-slide before you get your new gear selector. It is the same one as is on your compound handle, so take your exterior dimensions from that. Without a...

    If the bed was refurbished by regrinding then scraping, then the saddle would have to have been built up as well. Same with the tailstock. Turcite is added to the underside of the carriage to bring...

    Don't run into the carriage stop under power. The clutch won't clutch enough and the half-nuts won't clutch at all. This is called "crashing your lathe" and serious damage can occur. Use the stop...

    I don't think that it is a 9C lathe, but an earlier 9" Workshop lathe. I think that the only place to have the oilers was the headstock.

    I have this oil chart from 1934 that went with my...

    The TM belt is approximately 0.1" thick and I WILL grind about a 3" lap on both parts. Walmart has a 3.7oz tube sold by Zoro for about $5.5 with free delivery - can't beat that!

    My guess is that it is either an early oil passageway to oil the shaft installed by the factory or a...

    Jim,

    What size lathe is that? Did you make the bracket stud (the pin with the square head)? If so, what size did you make the flats?
