    Any pictures? You can probably make one (before you take the drill appart). Measure the distance between the two slots/holes, drill a couple holes in a scrap piece of steel and press in appropriate...

    From my experiences, surface plates with no visible damage will wear where the most traffic is and that's typically only in high high usage shops. Small shops using the plate a couple of times a day...

    We had one of these in our shop up until a few years ago. I liked it, but we needed something newer with a more standard control (but there are times I miss hearing its distinct servos out in the...

    It's funny I have the exact same machine at home... only from a different maker and 50 years older, but same style of micro production mill with rack-n-gear lever movement, small travels.... and a...

    Is there a reason the keyway needs to be that long? Some of our parts have a similar 6" or so long bore with keyway, but we relive the middle so it's only bored to size and keyed on the ends. In my...

    Really that's what happens with all lubricants, they break down and chemically change from use and leave their components behind. The thinner components either evaporate or are thin enough to run...

    On most of these old mills with steep-taper tooling, it was standard procedure to remove the tool from the spindle for the weekend or an extended period of no use... for the reason you have found:)....

    In many ways, re-grinding or re-fitting a lathe bed/saddle poorly can make the machine worse than before. Doing so might make it look pretty, but fix none of the issues it started with. I like seeing...

    We've never had much difficulty using the typical approach of spot drills, screw-length drills, THEN full length drills, boring bars, reamers, etc. and running at the right speed and feed. We don't...

    I've never seen an original paint scheme that had painted casting numbers, just manufacturers information and control information. You want the machine to look nice, but the lettering is practical...

    I prefer to avoid water based cleaners around bare metal surfaces and joints between parts as the moister will seep between parts and rust. Mineral Spirits does great at removing oil, dirt, and even...

    Pricing can be hard as the market value and what it will actually sell for don't always match up. The K&T 2D for example (one of my dream machines BTW) might attract a bunch of low ball buyers who...

    We did a lot of SS knurling a few years back and I don't recall what grade of SS was used, but we used dark thread cutting oil, flooding straight into the cutting wheels. Some bits will break off but...

    I think it stems from prints being made from the engineers perspective, with no thought of how it is made. In other words, they want the hole to be .2813, but it would still work if it was a thou...

    I might be wrong but I don't think Cincinnati offered one, at least not for the smaller #2 mills. Every set-up I've seen either used a lift cart, Jib or Gantry hoist.

    I wonder if they would be used together? Such as for tightening an arbor? The body of them appears to be able to rotate, but that could just be to hold short tool holders at different angles, while...

    Good on you for saving it! Even if it takes awhile, which is the norm with cases like this, it's worth the effort IMO. Comparatively, you have more there to start with then where I started on a...

    I know someone semi local to me with a 90's era 10EE that has a bad saddle and spindle. Don't know their travel plans but they could probably make a good machine between them.

    I think any grease that's an NLGI #0 weight is worth a look, but I haven't tried anything but the Roy Dean myself. Lubriplate 105 is on the cheaper side while Kluber is more expensive. We use Kluber...

    If it was closer and cheaper, I'd be interested, though I don't have floorspace to hook it up and won't for a long time. I'd prefer an old overhead line-drive machine over the newer hydraulics, but...

    Looks like someone did a good job on it. $1500 might still be high unless someone needs it. The 42" table is a handy size. Not as much as a bigger one of course, but big enough to recut many milling...

    Agree 100% with what you've said, and that's why oiling them is the original lubrication method on half these lathes. However, The Roy Dean Grease that the OEM also specified is a special weight that...

    Really depends on what wheel you have, if you are running coolant, etc. though I agree with Milland that if you are doing so many, it would be cheaper to have them made to the correct size.
