    I swapped the "A" and "B" legs going into the power disconnect box on the lathe and it worked! Previously I had tried swapping "A" and "C".

    Also my theory about the oil pump was correct, and now...

    The starter cap in the converter definitely drops out after thr motor is running, but I can't imagine that would affect the direction of rotation right?
  3. Ok cool, that was the consensus that my...

    Ok cool, that was the consensus that my electrician and I had too. I'll report back in a bit after I try it. Thanks for the advice.
  4. Dave, can you explain in simpler terms which...

    Dave, can you explain in simpler terms which contactors / coils you're referring to? I'm guessing they're inside the starter box.

    No electrical reverse switch, lathe does that with gearing.

    Lathe motor is 7.5hp, the lathe shifter has a neutral position so it can be started out of gear.

    The static converter is rated up to...
  6. Help - Lathe motor running backwards - no oil pressure

    Hey guys, hoping for an assist here.

    My electrician and I got a 220v single phase circuit ran for my lathe yesterday, hooked up the static phase converter, fired up the lathe, and it's not making...

    Thanks for the info guys. I have that book as well, I'll make note of those figures.
  8. Are W&S Collets Interchangeable Between No.3, No.4, and No.5?

    Could a collet for a No.5 be used on a No.4 etc. if it's still a size within the machine's capacity?

    This may be an obvious question since the collet boxes are marked with the model (No.3 etc.) so...

    Another potential option would be to try persuading Small Tools (Gahr) to make tutorials since they're seemingly the last best source of parts and rebuild knowledge.

    That's a great idea, I'll see what I can do about scanning it since it's a bound book.

    Well it took a whole Sunday to move this beast 30 feet across my shop and get it off the pallet, but it's finally in place.

    I have an M-1420 manual that includes the clutch adjustment procedure, I can scan it for you if that helps.

    I can only imagine, the GI's probably came back to discover their ladies had much better upper body strength!

    This beast is still a roll of the dice until I can test all the speeds / feeds, but I...

    Ooooooh ok so the only power movement of the turret/ram/carriage is the same movement you can do manually with the big spoked wheel?

    By loosening those bolts does it disengage the carriage from the shaft that normally moves it?

    I've got a copy of "Tools" and "Turret Lathe Operators Manual", a M-1420 specific manual will be here on Monday but I'd like to get some work done over the holiday weekend on it.

    I started cleaning the machine up with kerosene, the spindle rotates freely in neutral and I was able to engage all the gears (I think).

    Next steps will be changing the headstock oil and...

    They also made a compound for the No.4, I'm guessing they're super rare though.271179

    Hey Mike, if you end up doing this please post pictures and details. I'd like to do this to my No.4 as well. It seems like adding an Aloris etc. would be pretty straightforward but pairing it with a...

    Thanks guys. Does anyone know if there's a way to move the turret carriage without the machine running? I want to clean and lube everything before powering it on.

    Also, any comments on the gear...

    So I brought the machine home yesterday, here's the good, the bad, and the ugly. I'm glad I ended up hiring a wrecker to pick it up, would have been very perilous to try loading it onto a car...

    I do, I'll be sure to line that up.

    Are the bar feeders and collet chucks worth anything? I feel like I'll rarely use that setup and I could sell / trade them off for other tooling. If they're...
