    Typically a sliding fit is about 1/2 to 1 thousands of an inch. For a babbit bearing the shaft should be a nominal size. Since the babbitt won't have grown, making the shaft on-size should give the...

    Thanks Mike!

    I forgot to mention that the compound is complete. I had to cut some precise shim washers as we robbed the bearings for to replace the ones we lost in the apron, but otherwise there...

    I did look up needle bearings after your post but I didn't find anything I really was fond of. I'd need at least two of the ones I found to get the width right and then with the hardened inner...

    Used. I was pretty ticked at dad TBH. He bought about 4 or 5 Toolposts in some package deal while I was busy at college. Kept the holders then sold the ones he didn't like on ebay, including the...

    Thankfully we have enough money to throw a pricey toolpost away. Except we don't. Yes Aloris is a nice post but not all of us can afford that. The simple fact of the matter is that a quality American...

    Tapered rollers seem like an unnecessary expense since there is no thrust component. I looked them up anyway, and it seems like the od would be too large and the gear would get very thin if it worked...

    Obsolete Bearing Replacement

    Hi all.

    I'm working on a Sidney Lathe (thread here) and the change gear bearings are totally worn out to the point where the hardened sleeve has partially disintegrated. I've looked fairly far and...

    I would agree. It's sort of both though. It's a high angle wedge as opposed to a low one, but it acts more like a piston. Not a fan in general.

    Glacern has probably one of most rigid R8 facemills you can buy, being that it has an integral shank. I like mine.

    No, it has never worked any different than this.



    Mostly. I'm always afraid if I get any chatter it will rattle loose and bust my insert as the cam isn't jammed up tight like it should be. It...

    I have not measured. I don't think I have any actual Dorian blocks to measure to, but I should be able to read off their specs online. If I had to wager a guess though, I would say they would have to...

    Hi Ray. I'm not sure what you mean. You can see the tool-block is set right in the middle of travel. It wouldn't make a difference if it was a bit higher or lower either, it would still wedge it all...

    Hi mag.

    Thanks. The VLSR is good to go, it's brand new, but the MWLNR 16-4 is the issue. That's all I have to go by. I'm assuming it's Chinese by the lack branding.

    Dorian Tool Post Adjustment

    Hello.

    A few years back dad replaced his Chinese wedge AXA post with this Dorian, which I am not a fan of to put it kindly. The issue is that the cam profile does not seem correct. Instead of...

    I'm guessing we still don't have any pictures of this place? I'd certainly like to just get an idea of what that shaper looked like. Something like this?

    That is just the cutest little thing. I have no love for the Swiss watchmaker lathes but I'd be lying if I said that doesn't tug at the heart strings a bit.
