    Not all round dials. The 1939-1940 machines have a rectangular flange with 4-bolts, which also means the saddle is different. A later round dial cross feed dial will not fit a 1939-1940 machine,...

    Well, I should give some more info. about the application. The DPDT switch needs to handle 15A. I really don't need any additional functionality, just a simple DPDT wireless switch or relay.

    I think this is what you need:

    283692

    Thats a hard part to break, unless the lathe did a face plant or had a run-in with a forklift.
    The photo actually shows two parts, the front part of the...

    Mksj, interesting devices you linked. The first one might do it, but it requires a SIMM card and communicates over 4G. Thanks.

    I am not aware of any wemo switches that are spdt... You are right that a pair of spst switches plus IFTTT could emulate a spdt switch, but then it would take four spst switches to emulate a dpdt...
  9. Wireless Switches: Do SPDT and SPST wireless switches exist?

    Note, the title is wrong but I can't edit it. Should be do SPDT and DPDT wireless switches exist?

    The expanding foam you used did not completely setup (probably too much of it), so the tool holders in the center were wet. It dissolved the shrink wrap, and then it started drying as soon as it was...

    When I rebuilt my 42 round dial gearbox, 25 yrs ago or so, the flanged bearings were not available except for exorbitant prices. My solution was to buy the standard bearing and cut the groove in it....

    Congratulations! Nice looking machine. Did you replace the 4 bearings in the headstock below the spindle? I recently removed the apron oil pump on my round dial, and brazed the lever where it was...

    Glad you like it. Cast iron isn’t hard to pack, but I can’t get over the number of people who don’t know how. I learned a long time ago to wrap it with cardboard and make corners so that it is a...

    Hope you downed a good single malt in honor of those 75 years past. It would take another 75 to unwind (sesquicentennial comes to mind). Wish I wasn't aging faster than the 80 year old in the shop....

    The smallest camlock fittings I could find were for ¾" hose. I think I will go with JIC. Not looking for bling.

    Its not that simple. Depends completely on the wiring diagram for *Your* lathe. Some 10EE's, including mine, use the heater coils to protect only the coolant pump. Here is thread with the...

    I need to plumb a new little giant coolant pump for my lathe. The pump takes ½" male fittings, the lathe has ⅜" female for the inlet from the sump and ⅜" male for the coolant pipe/nozzle. I'm...

    Maybe the endbells were kept to make a frankenlathe type of drive. i.e. you have a mount for the 2speed gearbox and a way to support a drive shaft.

    I have the top half of the 2-piece upper...

    It turns out it is a rear cover. It has no art-deco bars, just the grills with frames around them. I'm not sure when they eliminated the art deco bars on that cover, but it might be an early square...

    Yep, front cover. 19 ¼" wide by maybe 17-18" tall. I couldn't quite get to it to get an accurate measure on the height. Complete with knobs. $30 plus shipping. Its cast iron, from a round dial...

    I have one of those, I think it is the front cover. I’ll check and get back to you.
