    I've done this repair more than once on tractor blocks using just a portable Kwikway boring bar. I bored the bottom diameter for a sleeve that was slightly smaller than the top diameter, so that I...

    Normally replacement bronze pin bushings(not steel backed) are .015"-.020" undersize. This gives the installer room to first burnish the bushings to seat them positively in the bores of the rods...

    I'll dig further with photo's etc, but right now I'm getting ready to spend a couple of weeks in the Riviera. It'll probably need tires when I get back.

    1969 10EE, points or rheostat?

    10EE brought back out of mothballs. The spindle RPM hunts, does anyone know if this year has points or a rheostat to control spindle speed?

    Tap depth is only 11mm, the holes are located 5" down into a 4" bore, see pic. I know I'm being paranoid but the blocks I'm working on cost around $8K each. I'd rather not mess one up.

    I am selling a real nice 10EE for a friend and it is wired 460 3 phase originally. Is there a built in transformer to change to 230 3 phase, as that is what I have. I saw a Youtube video that made it...

    These snap gages can be used in an empty hole in the bar. One end is spring loaded so you when you release it, both ends get pushed against the bore. They are good to a half thou.

    missing collet alignment pin on knee mill

    Friend scored a Clausing/Kondia knee mill with Prototrak MX3. The pin is gone, is this any issue considering that it has a power draw bar?
