    Forgot to add that the grinder is located in Conroe Texas (north side of Houston). I'll box it up for shipping too if needed. I'll get some weight/dimensions estimates together, but it's "light"...

    Might depend on the individual oil manufactures cross reference. Mobile lists their oil as BOTH DTE 26 and Heavy/Medium. I think it's all hydraulic oil in that regard.

    HOMGE MACHINERY IND. CO., LTD.

    If it's the same company, this is their current line. You might Email them or see if there's a dealer more local to you and see if they have a manual or parts for it.

    AFAIK, Homge only made vises/workholding. Kurt knock off's that weren't TOO bad.

    How does it mount to the knee? Our 1959 Bridgeport had a T-slot down there that we took off when we set it up with a DRO. I always thought it was just for mounting travel limits, but maybe it's part...

    We had an Italian Induma horizontal that looked similar vintage to yours (ended up in the scrap heap due to damage). It had some tags on it calling for 68 weight HD oil (Heavy/Medium) to be used in...

    The hand wheel looks just like one off of a Phase II rotary table of ours. The hold down clamps might be from the same. Black pieces in the white box look like table travel limit pieces off of a...

    I'll have to watch this.

    Is there any paper trail showing who made changes and who approved them? If so I'd stand by them. This is a prime example for WHY that paperwork exists.

    If not, it really depends on the...

    Cleaning out the old lubricant will be a big help. Shimming the spindle is done to correct wear in the bearings, but figuring that out can be thrown off by whatever crud is in there. Once you have...

    One other thing you will likely hear is that you need to start by getting the bed inspected/scraped first as it will be your standard for the rest of the machine.

    Old school "seasoning" cast iron isn't doing anything to help the iron, other than just giving it a long time to move around and relax. Thermal or vibration stress relief actually makes that happen...

    The spindle was 7 or 7.5HP. Sorry, I didn't save any of the feed trips or levers. I might have pictures of them though if that helps(?)

    Ok, I've got the manual scanned. It's a bigger file (73mb when compressed or so) so I might need to send it via Dropbox or something.

    Interesting piece behind the cross-slide. I'm guessing it's part of a follow rest since it's not attached to the cross-slide? I've seen some like that home-made, not an original cast iron one.

    Old Logan's have the head casting aligned via one of the V-ways, so it would take a serious hit to throw it off IMO. Is the bed level?
