    Part C and whats opposite it hold the assembly in main casting, besides keeping finger aligned. But removing those don't help you imo.

    Part B is a snap ring that applies minimal pressure to a...

    You can start about post #62 for anyone intersted:
    What have you made FOR your South Bend?

    To answer the op's question. You can stiffen up the spindle, though it won't be locked. Keep bull gear...

    I wanted to get any drilling and tapping done to the apron before going about its final clean up.

    I started with the drain to the worm gear sump. I drilled it larger and tapped to 1/4" pipe...

    I'm real happy with my results so far, but I feel like I'm swimming in molasses.

    I like the floor space of your current shop. I could really use a new shop myself. I have like zero floorspace,...

    A bit of a side quest here. I really like the old style Bijur one shot. It has an aluminum tank with site glass, plus a larger gits to fill it.

    The newer one shots come with a clear plastic tank,...

    I would guess cxa as well on tool post. But good news, you dont need to guess. Measure from compound rest to centerline of spindle.

    Now google "aloris cxa precision tool post" and "aloris cxa-1"....
  7. If you already bought the metering units, you may...

    If you already bought the metering units, you may be better off just installing them. Especially if you went through apron and I assume have a new filter on the oil pump.

    As I was starting from...

    Well I mis-read that. I didn't know you already owned it. 11 years, dear God you are a patient man ! :D

    If that's the case, I'd dump the oil in headstock and apron and use new oil before powering...

    That will be a really solid built and rugged lathe. Most things I'd be looking at are not really Monarch specific, but just how I'd approach any machine.

    First and foremost way condition. Next I'd...

    Test 2 complete on day 2.

    I wiped down, sliding cross slide and carriage to wipe oil off.

    It took 2 pumps of the one shot to just begin pushing oil at cross slide. By the 3rd pump I felt...

    At 5 1/8" on motor, and if you have 11.5" headstock pulley, and we'll guess 1750rpm motor. That equals 780rpm of the top pulley.

    We'd really have to shoot with a tach to know exact numbers. But...

    That particular gap does not bother me. Like any taper, you'll probably have a slight variance on parts.

    Drawbar may or may not be an issue. But its a separate issue. If you can reach collets with...

    Part 3 of 3:

    Now just being obnoxious, I pumped 4 more times, bringing the total to 12. I was simply flooding and drooling everywhere:

    335740 335741 335742

    So it took 8 pumps from an empty,...

    Pat 2 of 3:

    The front flat way, also after 6 pumps:

    335734

    Though I had oil, I was not fully lubed yet. I pumped two more times bringing it to 8 total. That got me fully lubed at each point...

    Test 1, part 1 of 3.

    Testing carriage and cross slide lube system with a Bijur one shot pump. All metering units have been totally gutted of internal parts, They are just open fittings now.

    Went to a tug boat outfit's main yard in Galveston today. Walking into their shop, lo and behold, a worm gear and worm wheel. I'm wondering if I can make it work for the 10ee. Might add some weight...

    My motor pulley OD is 7". Headstock pulley OD is 11.5". 10hp rated at 1750 according to the tag on the door frame. I didn't climb on top of the motor to confirm yet, but feel pretty sure mine is...

    Real nice, a lot of stuff. Love the drill bits. Having the drive plates is nice. Looks like most or all is there for using collets, plus the collets. The one exposed collet looks skinny for a 5c...

    Worm gear assembly is effectively finished until I install it in the apron. I'll be addressing some other things before then though, including the oil pump and oil lines.

    Taking a minor side step,...

    Pretty sure the South Bends were indeed babbit poured, atleast some anyway. Have not tried yet, but I was thinking a sleeve could be added to the collet rack holder as the dimensions are the same....

    As a new member, there's a chance if you post with a pic it will be flagged and not show up. Doesn't always happen, and I'm not sure what the threshold is, maybe 10 posts ?

    Don't bead blast, it'll look terrible. That could also happen with chemical cleaners.

    Wire wheel some. Others I'd shoot with wd-40, and shoot some sandpaper 200-600 grit with wd-40 too, and use...

    Actually I do disconnect it from the TA. :D

    I think a little more famous for cracking on other lathe brands, though Kevin T's SB 16 was cracked too that I'm aware of. If part of a collet rack I'd...

    The part that actually clamps to the bed is called a bed clamp. So unless I'm misunderstanding, you need a bed clamp for a heavy 10 taper attachment.

    I might buy this and use the bed clamp, when...
