    I've reopened crushed watchmaking collets by sliding them down a smoothing broach. There's no guarantee they will be good afterward, but it's the best method I've found.

    I couldn't find an obit but found out her wife (Trish, Carla used to mention her often) died about 10 years ago rather tragically. Carla had developed around the same time as I recall lung problems,...

    Man that really sucks. She was always one of my favorite posters, level headed and knowledgeable.
  7. Detalo lathe center, what does it do?

    Came across this strange center arrangement, only have the pics haven't seen it in person. Seems like a very specialized bit of gear but I can not figure out what it does. Has anyone seen something...

    I was kind of surprised that some bystander didn't get the El Paso guy. Pretty easy to carry there, open or concealed.

    They would have every 0.10mm, probably from 0.10 though not sure, up to 4mm almost certainly (the collets over about 3mm would likely have stepped bores). So you're missing quite a few!

    Age, condition, and tooling included will help, some pics would be good too. No matter what, jig borers aren't in demand, though the really small ones are (like the size of a small Igloo cooler)and...

    Before it gets locked, check Clickspring on YT, he uses a couple of smallish lathes and shows a lot of techniques that should translate to what you're doing.

    Same here, made a 6 tooth pinion a few weeks ago that was about 3mm long and 0.52mm diameter. Really need a better camera and a little light box to get any decent detail at that size.

    This was very likely a semi-production machine made in house late 1800s. Keep it as a beautiful curio but if the collets measure what you've described it's a real oddball (center height too).
