    My notches fall between 3 o'clock and 6 o'clock when the chuck is locked. This is somewhat controllable by you; removing the small set screw that prevents the cam lock pin from rotating lets you...

    Donnie-

    That's interesting, and I couldn't agree with you more. I have largely stayed away from PM because his non-stop BS made my eyes bleed.

    But I see two posts from him just this week, so...

    The 95/100 gear ratio is the same as a 19/20 ratio (divide both numbers by 5 to see this). So the 95/100 gearing lets you convert the 20TPI setting on the machine to actually cut 19TPI.

    Pianoman-

    I hope I'm not the only guy who thought he could chase any popular metric thread pitch after buying a 10EE inch/metric lathe. I didn't really pay a whole lot of attention to the metric...

    I machined the handle end of my chuck wrench into the appropriate 5/16" square drive, so I can use it to tighten/loosen the three cam locks on my 10EE spindle. It was mild steel so I hardened it...

    10EE CAD models?

    Does anyone have a CAD model for the 10EE? I am using CATIA to model my shop layout, and while I've found a lot of other models for the things I am placing (i.e. Bridgeport mill) I haven't yet found...
  8. Although I see no signs of any other attachment...

    Although I see no signs of any other attachment method, I must agree that a press fit would not hang in too long -- it would probably pull apart fairly quickly with use.

    Here's a new question for...

    Actually, on mine the tube does not appear to neck down. Do you have one of these handwheel drawtubes that does neck down? My tube is 0.350" in diameter, and fits into a larger diameter part. Thus...

    Yes Bill, it might be threaded and glued somehow. But I think I will try pressing it apart anyway, using a torch to heat the outer flange. What's the worst thing that could happen?

    I sure wish...

    Well, that's not my situation, I'm retired and have nothing but time. And so I ask you directly -- can you tell me how this draw tube is assembled? To me it appears to be a very fierce press fit,...
  12. Thanks for the info guys

    I agree, the other thread shows a repaired draw tube, not an original unmodified draw tube. It appears that guy swapped the internal/external thread configuration you said you prefer.

    I could...

    It appears I'm not the first to have this problem, but this other thread does not answer my questions:

  14. Repair of 10EE handwheel-style collet draw bar

    Hey guys-

    My 10EE has the old-fashioned Monarch 5C nosepiece with the handwheel draw bar. The threads in the drawbar have finally had too much use and the last nine of its sixteen threads have...

    I think the problem was damage from careless mounting by the previous owner. There were a lot of chip indentations in the planar surface, which raised that surface from the inevitable mounding that...

    I have about a 0.005" runout too.

    I checked two other new D1-3 mounting plates and there is equal blue across both surfaces. So this chuck needs to be fixed. Anybody have an opinion on using a...

    Both must touch -- okay, thanks.

    I will check my other chucks.
  18. What surface(s) of the 10EE spindle should be touching a mounted chuck?

    I bought a used Sjogren 5C collet chuck and notice it runs significantly out of true. I put some high spot blue on the face and taper surface of the 10EE spindle, mounted the chuck, then removed it....

    Sorry for the lame thread title, but I see no way to fix it myself. The software does not give me the choice to edit my first post again -- the "edit" choice does not appear there (although it does...

    How does the Monarch carriage stop work?

    Time for everyone to have a good laugh on me, because I don't know what this gadget does. I can see it's some sort of stop, but does it do anything useful like disengaging the feed? I am afraid to...

    I was thinking a little more, and maybe you want to use a glass jar and not a plastic cup with the Drano. Glass and NaOH is a safe combo, but certain plastics may give up the ghost with lye.

    The muriatic acid idea is not a good one -- muriatic acid is a different name for hydrochloric acid, a strong acid that will eat up all kinds of stuff.

    Old-fashioned Drano (NaOH) really corrodes aluminum, but I have no idea what it will do to the underlying tungsten carbide (or to the titanium nitride coating). You might take your least-favorite...
