  1. Straight wheel side on a carbide grinder confusion

    I was poking around at my local machinery guy’s place looking for a carbide lathe tool grinder. I ran across this odd Carboloy grinder. It has a straight wheel on the left, and then the normal side...

    I usually just grind freehand on a pedestal or bench grinder. If I want particular angles, I use one of those thin metal machinist protractors. Additionally, for threading tools, various fish tail...

    The huge drawback for this machine (in terms of selling it) is the spindle taper (maybe looks like a B&S 10) and the top spindle speed. I think they were about 350 rpm.

    Those number match my No.2MH Cincinnati.

    Getting those attachments would be a huge boon for me and this machine. Let me know! Feel free to PM me too whenever you are ready.

    Thanks,

    I will try to post my 2MH dovetail and mounting circle dimensions this evening or so to give some reference.

    If you intend to sell those, I would be very interested in buying all of them. I am pretty sure they will fit my 2MH, but would also want rough dovetail dimensions to check. Also, I am slightly...

    Who says if it has stuff going to it if you haven’t opened it? Those boxes usually have rear knockouts.

    There could be wires coming in from the sides you can’t see.

    I wasn’t saying it was better, I was just saying that it appeared to be the default recommendation from American based on some of their literature I have read. I always associate LeBlond, American,...

    1. Buy machine
    2. Buy another machine that can make missing parts for machine one. Bonus points if machine one can make parts for machine two.
    3. Buy third machine to make parts for first two.

    Er, ok, that could have come off as being a dick. But phi is used for a number of other specific things, most applicably angles or polar coordinates.

    On further reflection, it was probably just a...

    I was sort of under the impression that American recommended the L nose by default. Most lathes I have seen have an L nose. Their literature seems to suggest it too. But maybe by the late 60s the...

    This appears to be a straight shank drill chuck. They were either bored on 1/2” or 41/64” size. The set screw pushes into a spot on the bit and acts as a driver. Maybe try some heat to try to expand...

    In regards to too much force on the chuck, I am sure the engine hoist would have crumpled before it reached anywhere near that amount. Plus, if the chuck wouldn’t come off, there was no hope for the...

    Ha, yeah, the engine hoist couldn’t get any closer because of the casting on the lathe. Otherwise I would have run the ram in much, much further. I applied enough pressure on the hoist and watched as...
