    Hi Fellas,

    I'll *try* to go the chrome route first. I'm in Atlanta so there are plenty of places to go to get it honed and I'll find someone who doesn't screw up the keyway etc.

    Hi All,

    It has been a busy summer and I have been making slow, steady progress on my 10ee. The leadscrew gearbox is complete and sharing a furniture dolly with the apron while I work on the...

    Hi Folks,

    Just a quick update. I am making progress, albeit slowly. The apron is now back together! I wish I had read the threads about the oil pump not being self-priming *before* I reassembled...

    Making slow but steady progress. I took a break to paint some of the body panels that came back from the blaster. I'm not going to go crazy and do bondo and sand 3 times and whatnot; I...

    Hi Folks!

    I can't believe it's been a month since my last update! I have made progress, just not enough to make it worth posting. Some updates:

    Hi Folks,

    Can I hijack this thread to get some opinions? I'm looking at the same $470 from Monarch for a replacement EE-1306. It's not unfair, but it's a good chunk of change, too. Here are some...

    I used a punch to knock out the shaft that holds the handle first, knocking from the side opposite the handle. Make sure all the set screws are out. Then you can draw the main shaft straight out. See...

    Hi Folks,

    Well, I tried a few cycles of gentle (100W lightbulb) heating, application of Kroil, wheedling and pulling with no success. I finally took a look at the threaded end of the closer and...

    Thanks, bmazin! The photo gave me the confidence I needed to wallop it out with a drift. Appears the pin has a little taper and only goes out threads first. Appreciate it. Get a chainfall on that...

    Thanks, folks!

    I liberally applied Kroil to the seams between the closer body both outside the spindle and inside, and then applied some heat to try and give the Kroil room to seep in. Will let...

    Thanks, Cal! Looks like you are right (no surprise there!) upon further review of the drawings Monarch sent me (although the set screws - more like threaded pins - do not appear). Kroil, heat,...

    Ah jeez, it's even nicer than I thought. Jealous.

    When I turn it CCW, the nut just comes off the pin. Or do you mean I should remove the nut and then tap the pin out? Thanks!

    You're ahead of me, but not by much! I'm super envious of your workshop...all that natural light (and all those Vidmar cabinets).

    Made some progress yesterday afternoon; the apron is all torn down now save for the shift fork which is still stubbornly pinned to its shaft. I'm amazed at how unworn and smooth most of the...

    Quick update: I drilled and tapped that key for an 8-32 SHCS, the largest it would allow for, so I could get a positive hold on it from the top and it still won't budge! Even got a lever under it and...

    Hi Folks,

    I'm only seeing 2 big SHCS holding the end-gear casting, but there must be another one hidden someplace because it's all moving as one unit and binding with the pulley.

    Here are some...
