  2. Scraping my Boyar Shultz SG, need help! Table ways are hardened.

    Locknut, thanks for the lookup, but got a "line disconnected" from that number. You say the strips are supposed to have oil grooves, huh? Mine are smooth. Here's guessing they got worn completely...

    Richard, thanks for the follow-up. I had felt resistant to just grinding the table in situ in it's current orientation, since I haven't really settled what level is supposed to be, and wanted to not...
  4. Pre-grinding/scraping table before scraping ways

    Richard, I've seen you now, in several places, give the advice to remove the hardened material from the top of the table before scraping the ways. How much material should be removed?

    You also...

    Many thanks, RC. Takes out the guesswork and gives me confidence that I've removed all necessary fasteners before I pull hard on things. Also, a benefit to taking the pictures as you reassemble it...

    Thanks all for your responding here and not just referring to the archives. I've read a lot about flaking over the various past posts on practical machinist and did have some ambiguities about the...

    Glad to have found a close enough tool to have a pretty clear idea. Considering how cheap that one is, I may just buy it and grind a radius on it.

    I too need to be working on my deck before the...

    Tiaw: I had no such hen scratch on the ways - just worn smoothish. Maybe some corn rows.

    And yeah, for the outside of the column and the top of the knee, I just rubbed it on the surface plate to...

    What I've got is a pdf, which the forum seems to not like. It's also above the forum size limit... Karyn emailed me the list.

    (almost) Free stuff from Busch Precision

    Busch Precision is apparently liquidating a bunch of their precision reference stuff (straight edges, vee blocks, knees, etc) at prices so low they may as well be free. I got their 18" and 36"...

    VetteBob, thanks for the link for the time saver compound. I'm shocked at how cheap it is, considering the claims it makes. We'll see whether it arrives in the mail before I finish scraping the...

    Tiaw, considering the way that I scraped the grinder the first time, the big reason I used the saddle gib as a reference was that I simply had no straight edge of the proper length and angle.
  14. LeBlond No 1 Surface/Tool and Cutter grinder

    Richard, I didn't mean to be challenging your claim on the time saver compound - was just looking for a clarification between the experiences of two experienced people. I do have a mental picture...
  15. LeBlond No 1 Surface/Tool and Cutter grinder

    I had thought of lapping it as well. Did some poking around and found this thread http://www.practicalmachinist.com/vb/general/lapping-phosphor-bronze-bushing-164839/, in which Forrest seems to...

    Richard, thanks for the follow-up advice on where to put the flaking. I've taken to heart your various admonishments for putting it on hidden surfaces to keep the gunk out and will plan to do that -...

    On the bearings, I meant to be posting pictures of the spotting in them. Here are some more pics after another cycle:

    Here are some from the smaller bearing:

    Glad the post was of value then :)

    On scraping: The cast-in-place ways inside the saddle are a bitch, yes. Where does one find a straight edge of the perfect length for such a thing? So, I...
  20. LeBlond No 1 Surface/Tool and Cutter grinder

    Here I have the headstock mounted to a harbor freight anvil which I'm in the process of scraping to use as a lapping surface.

    The spindle is not in the operational position, which would have the...
  21. LeBlond No 1 Surface/Tool and Cutter grinder

    Greetings all. Not sure how interesting any particular project of mine might be to others, but thought I'd offer my other current project, a LeBlond grinder. I picked this up last winter and spent...

    On the position of the indicator in testing the spindle movement, should have been more specific. I mounted it to the mag chuck, thinking that total play between wheel and table was of concern, and...

    Oil gouges on boyar Schultz ground ways?

    Lol, I love your directness. It does look crummy to my in that picture. I think I took off 5 tenths on that pass. I have gotten better finishes with it, but agreed, that was not one of them.
