    If an earlier No. 3 lathe, chucks are held on the spindle by the collet draw bar and a proprietary outside taper. If a 3C lathe, the chuck mount is a cam lock D1-2", which was only used on a couple...

    It's beautiful. Looks like it may even have a back gear.

    3 speeds in headstock (direct, high back gear, low back gear) times three speeds on cone pulley equals nine possible combinations.

    Definitely made by Seneca Falls.

    I have a lathe headstock kicking around somewhere, not made by Seneca Falls, with a different Frasse badge on it. As I recall, it says "XLNT MACHINE TOOLS". Space...

    That's completely useless advice for 95% of older machinery, where either A. the maker specified an oil that hasn't been produced for 50 years or B. the maker didn't specify a type of oil at all.

    I wipe the surface and install it immediately, before condensation can form. I've disassembled a couple I put together this way, and observed no rust issues.

    The headstock bearing oil cups are special. Everything else is still available from Gits (I just purchased some). I may still have the order paperwork with the part numbers.

    Cincinnati touted that their table trunnion on the universal machines was stout enough not to need a support. Dubious, in my estimation.

    Yep, the 8" Junior. I had one until recently. They are light-duty, but well made.

    The large diameter round belt pulley on the countershaft would be used to drive a grinding spindle.

    Yes. That setup was once quite common on American bench and high-precision screw cutting lathes. Wade offered it, along with Rivett, Lorch, Hjorth, Stark, and most of the other makers of such...

    I believe I have a used set of the correct oil cups for the 8A spindle bearings. I think they were a non-catalog item, made special for Wade.

    Those bearings are what the cone pulley runs on when the bull gear pin is disengaged (ie, for using the back gear).

    The front and rear main bearings are not the same unit. The front is a double...

    Don't knock Pine-Sol until you've tried it. I cleaned an entire Logan lathe using it straight and heated. It did a good job and, because it was heated, the parts dried quickly.

    I've used Pine Sol for degreasing. It works pretty well, especially when heated. As I recall, the primary active ingredient is alcohol.

    I think $200 is low, but it depends how quick you want to sell it, and whether the buyer appreciates old things or just "needs a drill". It looks like a really nice drill.
