  1. Cal's thread requesting 10EE build sheets...

    Cal's thread requesting 10EE build sheets reminded me I wanted to get mine. It's 2 pages. The first two pics are each page, the other 3 pics I zoomed a bit for easier reading.

    Something I learned from Practical Machinist actually :D ! Read it from more serious machine re-builders like Forrest Addy, Richard King, etc. Since then I've been setting my lathe headstocks a...

    If I decide to use coolant, it'll help get the the fluid running toward chip pan or tail stock end, verse toward head stock or the gear end.

    Even if just oils, I'd rather have it creep toward tail...

    Besides leveling front to rear, I wanted to set headstock side a little high. I went for the .015"-.020" range.

    I'm not filling it yet, not till I restore it a bit, but got the tool...

    Pretty much finished up another project lathe. Spent the past week or so cleaning up the remnants, and trying to get my shop in order. It seemed like a parts explosion :D. Catching up on a little...

    More pics of the cabinet:

    303412

    Nice spring latches and handles, though the handle on door may not be original. Odd because it matches the style of other two handles. But in probably a 60 plus...

    A little off topic, but I bought it to go with this lathe, so I figured I share.

    A couple of months back daryl bane posted a thread on a Monarch tool cabinet here:

    Yea, with rke[pler mentioning the same. In retrospect, I should have this time. With initial fills of headstock, apron, and qcgb coming. Wished i had priced it out to know.

    In my head I was...

    Getting close to starting back on this. Picked up some oil I plan to use for this, and I think will become my "default" oil of choice for most related items. Going with DTE Heavy, which is equivilent...

    Damn Cal ! You're stealing my future story. :D :D

    That's exactly what I want to make ! Not an exact plan, but in my head I was going to use a slotted drive plate on a lathe. Set up two pieces out...

    I also picked up the acme thread tap, Cal linked me in post #110. But I have an idea, I plan to start a new thread about it. We'll see how that goes. :D

    Thanks, and I really appreciate it. :cheers:

    I have a few updates, but I need to push pause for a few weeks. I have another project almost finished, and I want to get it done to sell it. In the...

    It is just a rough idea, but I think it will end up close to that location in the end. Where it is I can nearly stand straight to pump, and view carriage. However, I do need to mount end bearing on...

    The pics in this post I edited with Windows Paint, I'm no artist. :D

    The red lines will be 3/8" copper tubing. The blue line medium psi #5 or #6 flexible hose.

    I am going to mount the reservoir...

    I figured out what I want to do with the carriage lube system. In that, I'm going to use my own pump, but probably and aftermarket reservoir tank.

    The pump is off a hydra start system. Which uses...

    I find a well practiced, straight faced reply helps explain: "A factory improved modification eliminates that."

    Hey I appreciate all advice really. Getting different opinions helps think around problems. And to be fair, its not like you saw it in person, or have xray vision. :D

    I'm more mechanic, than...

    Wanting to stick carriage on bed, but I was a little worried about the blue hose for the new oil supply. Whether it would put stress on small copper lines, and if I needing to change or adjust that...

    You can see some of the pieces with a dime as size reference:

    On the bell looking end, there is a felt material, presumably a filter. To get it all out i used a drill to circle the...

    Holding the black end port in a vice, I use a wrench to work it back and forth.And with a little prying got fitting to pull off of it.

    One portion of what was in that end. Plus a...

    Back tracking what I did on the Bijur fittings. . .

    I had done something similar on a mill's vertical ways. But the fittings were larger. They also had stone type filters, like automotive gas...

    In eliminating apron as oil supply, I capped the hole at top of pic with a 1/8 pipe plug. At the manifold, also at top of pic, I installed a plug into manifold where that oil supply went.

    I agree with your thoughts. I also highlighted from your quote a thing you hit on the head. That I'll be watching.

    Aside from my personal feeling that those fittings can be booby traps if one...

    I haven't laid it all out yet, and final testing will be on the machine. But I'm thinking a 2 or 3 way valve. One direction supplies carriage only, 8 restricted points. The other valve direction...

    I really appreciate all the info. But in fact I have already gutted all the fittings to remove the filters and check valves. Your concern that all or majority of oil will go to only some of the final...
