    The TM belt is approximately 0.1" thick and I WILL grind about a 3" lap on both parts. Walmart has a 3.7oz tube sold by Zoro for about $5.5 with free delivery - can't beat that!

    What 9" (give us the model number)?

    You really do need to post pictures with your inquiry.

    Jim,

    What size lathe is that? Did you make the bracket stud (the pin with the square head)? If so, what size did you make the flats?

    The closer is supposed to be a light press fit into the spindle - it should rotate WITH the spindle. If your attempts to obtain the correct gear, you could make a sleeve that accomplishes the same...

    People have operated the collet closer WITHOUT the special gear. In fact, the person starting that thread was operating quite well without that gear. See the pics further down the thread and you'll...

    It's not a collar, but an extended gear that presses onto the spindle. The end of the collet closer then is light pressed into the extended gear.

    Go here to get a .PDF of the collet closer that...

    It's possible, but you would need more information than is available. The number on the QCGB is just a UNIT NUMBER, which is basically a version number. With the version number info (date, change...

    Does your lathe have power crossfeed? If not, you may have a frankenlathe - a lathe cobbled together from parts of others. The "NCR" stands for 9", standard change gears, and regular spindle hole,...

    Probably want a j33. The others are larger than the big end of a #2 Morse taper. Just find a good chuck, then a good MT#2 arbor and match the attachment taper styles.

    The problem with doing it this way is that you can only braze/weld from the edges. This will result in a very weak repair. If you build up with CI rod, your repair is attached across the entire...

    Instead of doing dentistry, you should build up the area with the broken tooth with a cast iron rod, then shape the resulting glob into the correct tooth form.
