    Might be a different gen of control than ours was. Sounds like a battery is in order.

    We've done it, but all of our lift trucks rock side to side which is an inconvenience. Don't forget to lower it while you're away. We've had stuff get damaged a couple times because a careless...

    Your's is using the DX-32 type control correct? If I remember correctly (been a couple years since I played with one of these machines), they don't save automatically. There's a "save tools" key that...

    Can't say for certain without dimensions, but the arbor support LOOKS just like the ones on my 1936 Cincinnati 2L.

    We have a couple rotary's like that and a couple lathe cross slides and compounds with similar feature. The nub is for your thumb to push while holding the other handle for a little extra steadiness....

    That would be a fun one to keep in the corner. To bad it's so far away.:cryin:;)

    I added ball bearings to a steady a few years back and it worked OK for quick and rough work, but in general it's not going to be as accurate as solid tips. Solid tips means there's only one moving...

    Not sure about the grinder you're looking at but the smaller one's I've moved (Harig, Doall) always sat loosely on the sheet metal cabinet. There was nothing permanently mounting them together and no...

    I'm a Leatherman guy due to their warranty, and the pliers and screw drivers on them make them my "bad habit" tool (the tool I use too often instead of the ones I SHOULD use). Their blades hold up...

    True! It seems odd that they would make such a close copy of an American style tool room lathe to export to American prior to the war. After the war when they were getting their country back up and...

    Definitely a South Bend clone. The imperial measurements IMO would indicate that it was made to sell in America. The design looks like early SB, but with is clean as it is and the German origin has...

    I go by the mantra of "buy what you can, make what you can't" most of the time. Not sure about parts availability for your specific era of lathe, but 9" SB's are very common and if it was me I'd buy...

    Hard to tell but that looks like an M-head on a dove-tail base. So it'll be more ridgid than a round-ram, but you're still limited to 1/2 HP and 1/2" collets.

    Condition and tooling is everything.

    All of these parts do not work, and are for parts or repair (if you're savvy enough;))

    Same here. Get the rough shape with a run-of-the-mill aluminum oxide wheel, then take it over to the CBN to lap in the geometry.

    We have a Baldor tool grinder with CBN on both sides that is nice...

    One of our mills has a PCMCIA card on the console too. You have to be careful with the pins when taking it in and out, but using a PCMCIA to USB adapter would be easy plug-n-play. We just keep a...

    Inspecting it under power will be good to see that everything works, but you won't get a straight cut with it on those wheels.

    A lathe of that size IMO either better have had the ways redone...

    2 piece jaws tend to be easier to source replacements for if/when they get banged up, while one piece tend to have to come from the OEM.
