    The repair I'm attempting is going to have to bear a high torsion load on a pot metal spindle that's about 7mm in diameter. Design is weak which is probably why it broke. Isolating that part of the...

    80/20 anyone?

    I'm not sure why no one has mentioned the 80/20 component system. It's fantastic and always looks professional. It's used ubiquitously in the movie "The Martian" and many others. They have many...

    I would not argue with a word of that. One thing I was wondering is if anyone has tried a wide flavor of the link-belts that are commonly used to replace v-belts in woodworking machines? My guess...

    I'm guessing Gazz can't use a seamless solution so hopefully someone can help. I would guess vulcanized seam should be as strong as the rest of the belt, but I guess not. Hopefully someone can...

    I'm not very good at working on lathes and I probably had less than an hour into spindle R&I including updating all the felts.
    That seem like less time than one would spend glueing those scab...

    I had good luck with this sealant:
    Sikaflex 1A for Zinc Sheet

    I used rivets with it. It takes a while to dry, but has wonderful adhesion. You can place the rivets close enough to the seam that...

    That's a cool vendor to know about. Thanks for that. But, not sure if they would want sell in small quantities. It would be nice if they did. I found two slot head 12-28s in the shop and I'll...

    > The socket head set screws
    Did you have any luck finding these in 12-28? I hadn't.
    I like the idea of a brass spacer which also allows for a smaller screw which might help the plight.

    I know and that's a fine deal. That's what's needed for restoration. Mi gib screws are in nice shape. Also, Steve didn't have those listed when I originally looked into it and I need a big head for...

    I've been doing some research on sourcing just the screws since I want to make a little thumbscrew for each of the slides. 12-28 is available but not at all ubiquitous. Some sources:

    I was thinking about this this week and I think the second guess seems on the money. With an older bed I'd imagine the wear would put the face of the milling attachment at a non-perpendicular angle...

    Stunning. Glad you decided to put those clamp wicks in the spindle. Now you're the only one on the planet with the same setup as me.
    When you pulled the spindle, did it seem like the round wicks...

    It worked great. The idea is from another post #7 on this thread. I had another MT 2 drill chuck from my drill press which was a big help.

    I did the "1/4" cap screw" version of extending the tailstock taper so it ejects. Just the height of the caps crew head was not enough for my 1939 SB 9C. But, adding a 1/4" nut did the trick. ...

    The Naptha really is wonderful for so many things. I think it's also referred to as VM and P. Removes glue and adhesive effortlessly. It's a primary ingredient in laquer thinner as far as I know. ...

    I like the sleeve idea.
    Also, couldn't we just make a little spacer out of aluminum or brass and use loctite metal adhesive to glue it onto the small end of the taper?

    With this 3 ply nitrile belt you purchased, there are a few choices on how the ends are joined: laced, skyved endless, or skyved glue-it-yourself. Which one did you get that's worked so well for you?
