    Bridgeport's aren't really unique, but they are definitely iconic.

    Doing any further welding seems counterproductive. If you're worried about color matching, maybe experiment with dyeing various epoxies and see how it effects their cure.

    As you have seen, even...

    JB Weld is pretty close to the color of cast iron. I used it to fill some drill holes in a milling machine vise, and it's tolerable.

    On FB Marketplace in Greensburg, PA if anyone is interested. These are fairly rare. The original variable speed motor is gone from this one... somebody rigged up an old Chevy transmission in its...

    I've heard that they were also sometimes used in print shops, for squaring the ends of type once it was assembled.

    Depends on the condition of the oil you drain out, I suppose. Probably not necessary to flush at all, unless it's contaminated by something. Those transmissions don't get hot enough to cause a lot of...

    No reason not to add an idler. You can also raise the lower cone bracket on shims, shorten the existing belt, and then remove shims as the belt stretches. I did that on my Royersford drill, and it...

    Champion and Royersford drills are the same machine. I'm not sure who built for who, but the castings are identical besides the name plates. The only difference I've been able to find is that...

    The Morris Museum in Morristown, NJ houses the Murtogh Guiness collection of automata. Worth a stop if you're in the area. I don't remember if they have a Violino Virtuoso, but wouldn't be...

    It's unlikely any maintenance or repair information was ever published. Back then it was expected that machinists could make repairs without specific information.

    As I recall, L1 spindles are almost always either No. 5 Morse (small) or American Standard No. 200 (large) bore. This adapter is too small for both of those. That's not to say that LeBlond didn't...
  18. Greenerd arbor press stand mounting question

    I have a Greenerd No. 3 arbor press with the factory cast stand. It's currently apart for repairs, so I stole a photo of an assembled one from the internet to illustrate my question.

  19. Armstrong CXA piston style tool post

    Armstrong QC-6 (CXA) quick change tool post. Pretty much matches Aloris dimensions except that the block is 1/4" taller, like a Dorian. This can be handy when fitting to a lathe that is just slightly...

    It IS a Lima drive. Says so on the tag. They sold units new to manufacturers, as well as for aftermarket conversion.

    I can't ID the maker right offhand, but the casting bolted to the headstock is interesting. It would appear that the machine probably started out with a factory electric motor drive, but at some...

    I have an Armstrong. Might be considered an off brand at this point, but I think they started making them around the same time Aloris did. Quality is equal, if not better. It's a piston style. If...
