    Fairly late ATW - late fifties or so. They got hard ways in '47. Good luck to the scraper hand:D

    Note 1 1/8 spindle bore - so no 5C collets

    John - you keep mentioning BREAKERS. What is between the breaker and the motor?

    What do you use to turn off and turn on the lathe?

    If in between is a rotary switch or the more capable magnetic...

    :D I hate being the old curmudgeon, but you are barking up the wrong tree. It was running - how can the motor be needful?

    It makes odd noise instead of running = single phasing = switch gear...

    Strongly suggests single phasing - which very likely could be at least one set of crappy contacts in what ever switch gear is in use

    Fix the busted one?

    (I will assume break in mid length)

    1. Record length of broken one

    2. Cut out about 1/4" of length at break

    3. Make l/r hand custom "bolts" with hex in middle
