    UPDATE: Oct 15, 2020: Remove Lathe from Trailer

    I finally got the lathe off the trailer yesterday. It basically turned out to be an all-day job. I was working with a come-along wench and...

    @ Doc,

    Ahhhh,... The coolant pump. That makes sense. The coolant pump is probably missing on this lathe. There is no plumbing on the top of the lathe for coolant fluids. So chances are pretty...

    Oh no! The termites are back! :eek:

    Don't worry about it. If you need a closer look chances are very good that you already have no clue what it's for.

    Looking at a close-up of the end of the...

    The Mystery Shaft to Nowhere?:

    I notice there is a shaft on this lathe that isn't connected to anything. It appears to have some type of connector on the end of the shaft that's clearly meant to...
  5. I worked on the lathe for about 15 minutes...

    I worked on the lathe for about 15 minutes tonight. :D

    All I did was unscrew the toenails (levelers) so they don't pose any problems when I unload this thing. I'll be unloading it a few inches at...

    I prefer a simpler machine as well, but when your only paying $302 for the thing you can't afford to be too picky. :D

    I've been into electronics my whole life so I'll have no problem figuring out...

    Here's a photo of the electrical cabinet on my No. 3

    301353

    The gray box in the upper right corner is the main OFF/ON switch.

    There are two very large relays at the bottom of the cabinet.

  8. @ Doc, That's what I'm thinking. I don't...

    @ Doc,

    That's what I'm thinking. I don't think these are necessarily the wrong schematics for this lathe, they probably just include all the available options and so you only need to use the...
  9. Well, this one definitely has a quite large...

    Well, this one definitely has a quite large hydraulic pump. It's mounted on the side of the electrical cabinet. As far as I am aware it's only used for the hydraulic collet closer. But that's...
  10. It's going to be a while before I can send these...

    It's going to be a while before I can send these schematics out. I'm extremely hesitant about sending them out before I have some sort of back-up copies. There's too much good information on these...

    That's the way my hi-res camera is. It takes pictures with such high resolution you could blow it up to the size of a billboard without loss of detail.

    In fact, many people post images on...

    I had a sneaky suspicion you were a machinist community superstar. :cheers:

    I trust that you'll find a good home for the original docs.

    None the less, just in case they get lost in the mail on...
  13. I wouldn't send them to just anybody. I don't...

    I wouldn't send them to just anybody. I don't personally know DocsMachine but he comes across in his posts as quite knowledgeable and sincere. He has also started some pretty impressive threads...
  14. Now I need to know,.... So what happened last...

    Now I need to know,....

    So what happened last time?

    I don't want to end up with no schematics for my lathe. :eek:

    I'm going to by buying some new batteries for my hi-res camera. Hopefully...
  15. Yeah we can do that. I just now took photos of...

    Yeah we can do that. I just now took photos of them outside using a tripod to steady the camera. The results are blurred and unreadable. I even took smaller sections of them but those too are...
  16. I don't see any copyright information on them so...

    I don't see any copyright information on them so I see no reason why I can't just post the photos. Plus considering their age copyright probably wouldn't apply at this point anyway?

    It will take...
  17. There is some original paper work in the...

    There is some original paper work in the electrical box. Full schematics that are clearly very old paper. They are dated 1953, 1958, and 1959. So I'm guessing this lathe was made in the late 50's...
  18. This is getting complicated now. I'd to put the...

    This is getting complicated now. I'd to put the wrong fluid in it and ruin it before I even get started.

    I haven't drained out the original oil yet. It might be a while before I get to that...
  19. Yep, this thread is definitely a train wreck....

    Yep, this thread is definitely a train wreck. :ack2:

    No problem. I'm too busy to be working on the Warner & Swasey right now anyway. I did check the oil in it. It appears to be full. I haven't...

    Ok thermite, I got you an information problem to solve:

    I need to know what capacitor to use for a General Electric 220 volt 1PH motor.

    Here's the GE part number: 5kcp48TG1815

    I type that...
  21. I find myself agreeing with you on most things. ...

    I find myself agreeing with you on most things. I guess this means that I already know pretty much everything you know. :D

    I totally agree that learning how to allocate other work to the right...
  22. I'm serious too. There are times when I can't...

    I'm serious too. There are times when I can't find information I want no matter how hard I try. Although, sometimes it's difficult to explain exactly what I'm looking for.

    One example is with...
  23. I'll definitely keep that in mind. Next time...

    I'll definitely keep that in mind. Next time I'm looking for information on something I can't find I'll give you holler.
  24. Thanks, HBB. Sounds like good advice. :D

    Thanks, HBB. Sounds like good advice. :D

    @ thermite,

    Surely you don't think that someone who already has been doing some blacksmith work hasn't already watched tons of Blacksmithing videos?

    I've watched everything from the pros who...
