    We still have some Collis Chuck stuff in storage from decades ago when our shop had a Radial Drill. I've never used them but they're definitely made for production work where every tool is going...

    They do surface treating and metallurgy stuff too, so probably a bit of compressed gasses on site.....

    Made some solid progress with the more critical issues. I got the arc cut for the head clamping plate and it fits right into the dovetail :cloud9:. So if anyone ever needs to replace it: 7"...

    I recently bought new keys for our two Gerstners as the originals were long gone. Both are the same 42 style with the handbook drawer in the middle.

    One we bought full of tools from a widow at...

    I've got a couple upcoming jobs that I'm waiting for some blanks to arrive that we'll bend and weld together. We still have a bunch of extra tips for the Miller, so If I can find an appropriate...

    What I've seen more commonly is to use a 4 axis display that has both Z axis read-outs labeled separately (Z and Z-quill for example). They don't get combined because they don't get simultaneously...

    It has QC, but the single tumbler type, so not as desirable as the newer double tumbler, but still way better than a change-gear lathe. Our Heavy 10 is a single tumbler and It honestly does...

    Haven't made a lot of progress lately. I pulled the quill pinion out of the head to see about replacing the stripped gear. Luckily I found a replacement on McMaster. It's 1/2" wide, 7/8" round, 3/4"...

    Our shop's in a 10,000sqft room and we have 8 misc. speakers tied back to a pair of amps listening to Pandora. When I say "misc.", I mean ANYTHING that isn't blown out. Most are old home stereo...

    If you attempted to fix it, I'd worry about the liability when it does fail. I'm not in the construction/architecture world, but OEM responsibility has been known to vanish as soon as someone starts...

    I must be in a really hole-in-the-wall sector of industry because it's very rare that I hear about banned jewelry in other shops or injury's related to rings (except online). I hear and have seen...

    Well if it's 6, 9, or 12 speeds, I'm sure I could make it work. I'd mainly want to ditch the overhead gear box as it's negating the 3 speed cone pulley, but also just because I'd like to run on...

    I paid $500 for my 6' Brown & Sharpe and it's going to need some work, but I also had to buy it from a place back east because tools like it aren't common around here.

    IMO they will have a higher...

    I think either would be worth a shot. It just comes down to how you want to spend your time. Personally I would go for the K&T and buy any attachments I can as needed (which is what I've had to do...

    Induma's are good mills, but parts and support of any kind are non-existent here in the states. I actually scrapped one last year. Too much wrong that would involve too much custom fabrication and...

    IMO, for every bit of effort you put into scraping, you need to put twice was much into inspecting your machine/parts and knowing where and how much material you need to remove.

    Ok so it isn't two sets of back gears, it's a single 3 speed back gear. I'm catching on.
  19. Disregarding the drive all, The reason I think 12...

    Disregarding the drive all, The reason I think 12 is that you have 3 speeds via the cone pulley, then one hi/lo back gear multiples that to 6, and the other hi/lo back gear multiplies that to 12,...

    Yes I believe it is a double back gear. I could probably make the drive all work better by running a wider flat belt between it and the headstock, but my plans are to remove the drive-all unit and...

    I'm not sure what the OEM speed range was on this lathe, but I imagine it's similar to my 16" Hendey and somewhere around 600 RPM was the top speed. The original Jack-shaft of a 14" W-B lathe...

    Making the pulley slightly larger would also enable me to possibly use it as a foundry pattern later on too, but that's all dependent on if low volume iron casting ever becomes easier to source:(.

    This deal is still in the works.

    What HP of motor would be appropriate for a lathe of this size? 1HP? I'm thinking about possibility of replacing the current owners motor/gearbox drive with an...

    We're in the piney woods just north of Houston TX where the humid coast meats the Louisiana Swamps.

    We put our air compressor outside to minimize noise, even though we have lots of humidity and...
