    I hardly hear mine under normal running speeds, but, on my 13", when I have the sliding gear pushed in, I can't hear myself think. LOL!

    I'm in for the thread stop for the 13" lathe. I need to double check size, but looks right.

    1927. Very cool. Those old lathes don't have as much detail as the one I have from '41.

    Have you done any research on what the Norfolk Motor Equip. Corp did in the 20s?

    You'll have to remove the apron, but not necessarily the saddle. The apron is held on to the saddle with some large screws from the top. You can remove the lead screw support on the tail stock end...

    Resurrected my old thread.

    The lathe is officially back together and operational. Everything is running great. My only complaints are that is some of the spindle speed/gear positions, the primary...

    Interesting, because an acquaintance of mine said he did, and he's a hobbyist. Perhaps I misunderstood him.

    I've never bought from them, but have looked at their listings. And you are able to power them up and run them, from what others have told me. The point was, you can go and see it. Incidentally, most...

    The best advice I got when I started looking for machinery was to have patience. The right one will come along, but be ready to snap it up. But I would never buy sight unseen. I'd have to at least...

    If you are unable to find a new gear, bore the gear out and press in a bronze bushing. My guess is the shaft is probably what will need to be replaced. That spalling is only going to make any new...

    Good news and bad news.

    Good news, I managed to find replacements for all the gears I thought I needed.

    The stud gear I found on Facebook from another user of the South Bend Lathe page.

    You can order the serial card from Grizzly that will give you the exact date of manufacturer, and often the original purchaser.

    From what I was able to glean from my googles, is that the motor has two different windings, one for starting it, and one to keep it running. Depending on the way the start wires are connected,...

    I went through this nightmarish issue myself. What I learned is it depends on the motor and it depends on the drum switch. There are a lot of similarities, but not all the motors are necessarily...

    One popular color used by more than a handful of restorations I have seen here and on the yootoobs is Gloss Smoke Gray from Rustoleum. It's an oil based enamel. As long as the surface is clean of...

    Some of those covers are actually aluminum. You might want to check it with a magnet.

    Just to be clear, my video was less of a "How to do it" and more of a "How I did it" documentary. I make no claims that anyone, anywhere, under any circumstances, should do what I did. ;)

    Jon,

    Thanks for the reply. I did find someone on eBay selling NOS gears for $50 so I took a shot and bought one. It's the same part number as far as I can tell. It won't get put in for a while,...

    That would be a great first lathe. I have a 1941 13" (a bit older than the one pictured here) and it is a bit worn, but cleaned up great and runs great.

    What to look for:

  23. Bridgeport 6F Power Feed Drive Shaft Gear

    I recently acquired a Series 1 BP with a 6F power feed on the X axis. The power feed seems to be electronically sound. However, the spiroid gear (drive shaft gear) is toast. I imagine it was...

    The head itself is in decent shape, as far as I can tell. Something happened about 10+ years ago with the mill, not completely certain, and the motor spun, destroying the key way. It was disassembled...
