    Yes, you are over thinking this. You are adding some restriction, but it will not be an issue. However, I don' think your idea will work very at all. The dryer and centrifuge needs to be on the...

    Don't even think about changing to Lithium batteries. They are not up to the task. What you have will last 25 years if taken care of.

    You are not the only one still using cutting oil. I do as well on my big L&S to eliminate that crud that grows in coolant, but it is expensive to do. Cutting oil is also not without its issues...

    ladaok,

    I'm confused. You bought this lathe from Monarch. Monarch bought L&S and supports their lathes. So why did Monarch not repair this drive before they sent it to you? What was the deal?

    If you have ever examined a lapped surface under magnification, you would never lap anything except a taper fit. The surface looks like the rocky mountains.

    This is an old thread, but none has mentioned that many of the pre-threaded back plates do not have a machined shoulder. This must be checked because it is the shoulder that registers the chuck on...

    I would also like to point out that you need a hole standard within approximately one inch for every hole size you wish to measure. Without those standard hole gauges you have no way to know your...

    It is enough if you allow 18" between the chip pan and the rear wall. It is not much, but it works. The moving of the lathe into its final location should be done with machine skates. I would be more...
