    I have my lathe back together, and with the 5 psi check valve installed my apron is no longer "oiling like crazy." I ran the power feed at highest feed (highest RPM on the feed shaft) with the cross...

    Cal pointed out that those gears are called end gears, helps folks give more relevant answers.

    All gear hobbers have multiple open gear sets, not to mention all South Bend lathes, that are...

    If you remember back to when you changed the threading gear shifter and removed the spindle, that there were not random open holes underneath the spindle. If so you probably would have noticed. You...

    They are indeed for the taper attachment slide, and if you don't have a taper attachment, I'll buy them from you. PM sent.

    Turn a piece of brass or soft steel the diameter of the straight portion minus a few thousandths, and then slot it for the key. See if you can push it all the way in to where it equivalently should...

    This may be a rhetorical question, but does HGR ever have a useable machine? Everything I have looked at of theirs has been missing necessary stuff to actually use.

    Comment for others who are buying new fittings, I ordered mine from Fluidline last week, and yesterday removed the apron. Ugh, I find the check valve in the apron is a 1/8 NPT thread, not the...

    KBC shows spacers for those diameters, but not for 1/2 inch. Used KBC many times over the years, they have stuff no one else has.

    Mcaster doesn't have anything. I think the ones at Grainger are the Precision brand shims. They do go up to 1/8 inch, but I need spacers on the order of 1/2 - 3/4 inch, like the ones on an arbor.
  11. Need 1/2 inch diameter id precision spacers

    I need keyway 1/2 inch spacers for a 1/2 inch arbor, but I can only find the spacers included on 1/2 inch milling arbors.

    This in a cheapo Chinese one, but Bison make the same item. I would...

    I did what I should have done at the beginning and emailed Steve at Monarch. He gave me the definitive answer. The fitting in the apron is a 5 psi check valve. He said if a metering fitting is put...

    Daryl, I am going with your thought that the compound was replaced. Maybe Monarch wasn't concerned whether the degrees were perfect and scribed the marks on the cross feed to match the compound. I...

    Square dial compound question

    I was setting my compound to 0 degrees, and I noticed it wasn't. Upon further inspection the degree markings are about 3 degrees off square, so to speak. Is the degree wheel a separate part from the...

    Bill, I thought of that along the way, but the arbor is a taper arbor, so the only mounting surface is 3/4 inch of 5/8 diameter, approx 8 inches from where the end support taper is, and there was way...

    Since I am on day 3 of making my taper bushing, (the taper is essentially unknown, thus lots of time working to achieve it, wear on mating part etc.) it might be worth spending $170 for a Hardinge...

    So is this correct? In the linked thread the center is a MT3 inside of that collet device? If so the 6R size is a monster.

    Thanks all. When I replaced the fittings I checked them by attaching to the electric oiler on my mill. They all seemed to have a reasonable drip-drip.

    Apron oil pump question

    Boy it feels good to ask an operational question, rather than a rebuild question, after 2 1/2 years.

    I replaced all the Bijur metering fittings in the apron/saddle with identical new old stock...

    Mcmaster has all different packing strings. The hole you refer to is threaded and I was concerned o-rings wouldn't seal on the threads so I used packing from Mcmaster.

    Relative to the stiffness of 1/2 inch aluminum, I would think the issue would be the bolted attachment to the saddle. Having the bolt that low on a tall part may not prevent the plate from moving...
