    The 10k is a newer 9A and it comes with the the stepped motor and counter shaft pulleys. As a 10k owner since 1981, I never use that as a speed changing feature. I pick a position and leave it there.

    I'm sorry, your experience is not mine. I use my horizontal saw about once a week. It is a 12" professional saw. It has coolant and I use it every time the saw is used. It does not make a mess. I cut...

    Andy,
    This is a problem on eBay everywhere. The most common solution is to ask a forum member living in that country to receive and forward the item for you.

    Your tensioner is the same as mine with the exception of the plate with the two bearings are mounted on. This plate and rollers lift the belt cover when loosening the belt. That cover is a huge PIA....

    Dan,
    I am confused by your statement concerning the location of the belt tension release lever being behind the drive unit. It doesn't make sense. The release handle is a casting that pivots on a...

    Skippy,
    This is NOT a sales platform. It is a machinist's forum and the privilege of a sales listing is for the use of participants. You are not a participant. If you participate and add value, you...

    I'm now really confused. I have no idea what you just said. Are you saying that he should do this job on his SB? If you are saying that he could do the job on his SB, I agree with you, he could, but...

    You need to watch that video again, because you obviously missed the part about cutting the keyway with a specially ground horizontal cutter for his K&T to produce the radiused bottom. This is a task...

    Why tongue in cheek? it is clear the OP is inexperienced at least in this task. The OP has a 10" SB with very limited compound travel. Is he prepared to cut the radiused cornered keyway and with...

    The conversion of a wood saw to metal is rarely successful. There are major differences between both types of machines that are difficult to create and expensive. You are far better off just...

    In short, no you cannot. You should have a TA or a tracer attachment. Second, the fit must be correct or you risk loosing the prop and shaft. It is the taper that drives the shaft, it is not the key!...

    That's not true. I recently bought an item that was incorrectly described. I complained. The seller objected. eBay stepped in and decided in my favor and the original cost plus shipping both to me...

    It does have a TA, which is not only scarcer than hen's teeth, but was an expensive accessory new. I agree on the accessory and tooling statement you made. Another reason to inspect first.

    The name plate is now held in place with screws. Originally, the factory used rivets.

    It has been repainted. It looks good, but the ways and the rest of the machine must be inspected before top dollar can be asked. It is old and it is used. My best guess is about $4000.

    Hard is not the correct criteria for a piston. It is retained strength above 300 C, not at room temperature. In that light, 7075, the 4000 series eutectic alloys fail miserably. the super eutectic...

    You will find that using a thread dial to cut metric threads on a lathe with a metric lead screw and an indicator is a 1st class PIA. Cutting metric threads is much easier on BOTH a metric and an...

    That is a nice machine, but it is a big task to overhaul it and bring it up to like new specs. I am doing a 1612 contour saw now. It sat in my garage for 20 years before I decided to restore it. Mine...

    I know of none that I trust. I have a high dollar one that I never use for that reason.

    Jacobs had these for 900 and 500 series rubber collets. Which series collets fit this chuck?

    I guess I'm old fashioned. I like the smell of cutting oil on hot steel. I also like the smell of tarred hemp in an old fashioned rigging shop. I would however, not use heavy sulfurized gear cutting...

    I think it depends also on whether you are a hobbyist or a commercial shop. Water based coolant doesn't like to sit for long periods of time. Shit grows in it and it can really stink. I use cutting...
