    Glad I paused and asked before applying force. I see the split cotters through the bushings, so now it makes sense that they have to come out first.

    Agreed, no slide hammering on the lathe! :eek:...

    329481

    My new DSM-59 arrived today. I was looking at the turret and, it is indeed 3/4, but three of the bores have 5/8 bushings. They are not HDB style bushings. I gave them a bit of a tug and...

    I didnt know that.

    The R was the step pulley version for faster Forward/Reverse changes? Interesting that version was more expensive. Seems like a less complicated setup. I guess one was paying...

    Thank you all for the information.

    It seems like 5/8 shank is the most common for B&S screw machine style tooling. Was there a popular manufacturer of screw machines that standardized on 3/4? (If...
  5. Hardinge DSM-59 Turret - When did 5/8 shank become 3/4

    Curious when Hardinge switched from 5/8 shank to 3/4 shank for its turret...or was 3/4 some sort of upgrade option?

    Is there a serial number list for the DV/DSM floating around? I think I read a...

    Resurrecting an old one here. I have a Mitutoyo PL-335LZ counter where the X reading has gone out. I know its the counter because the X scale works properly when plugged into the Y & Z pots. Any...

    The tool holder may be special but it looks like the insert is standard. Looks like a TPG322. The other one looks like a D style. Try DPG and see what comes up.

    Does the Norton #2 brake dresser disassemble the same way as the one shown in the Cape Cod CNC video? I would assume so, but it is not going easily. Figured I would double check before applying extra...

    I appreciate the suggestions, but both of these companies seem like massive overkill for doing one small sample of steel for a random person.

    I dont have a wide range of known tool steels, but being that it is quite a cost effective test, its worth a shot.


    Indeed they cannot. Thus the question. From my research there are enough...
  12. Material Idenfication for Steel (XRF vs Other)

    I have a piece of mystery steel that I recently used to make some personal parts. I have no traceability as to what specific grade it was, nor do I need a formal certification for a customer - I...

    Yes, I could just...

    That does make sense. I too have been slowing the machine down by hand, but I was doing a large run of parts recently and it was bothering me, so I adjusted the brake in a bit and traded one vexation...

    Very interesting. Either this delay is an artifact of the machine or we both have the same issue.

    The same contactor is activated for both high and low speeds, which is activated by the same cam lobe on the cam shaft. During low speed the contactor activates quickly, but during high speed it...

    I am having a similar issue with my HLV-H (1968). One difference, my brake is disengaging when in low speed, but not disengaging properly in high speed. The switch functions properly.

    I adjusted...

    Thanks for your quick reply! I totally missed that adjusting screw. Indeed the blade did want to walk, but now the blade is tracking well, but the tire is walking out from under the blade. Only on...

    Just finished installing the Enidine hydraulic cylinder. Is it supposed to have about 2in of compression before the rate control sets in or is mine low on fluid?

    That Parma thing threw me off until I looked closer at it. Never knew there was one in MI until I got my saw.

    I cannot guarantee its original, but my saw came with a 3 step pulley (4-3-2, fits a...

    I dont particularly like the geometry of these levers. I drilled a hole and added a separate stop for the feed lever which positions it better IMO. On the other linkage where the weight goes, the nut...

    Thanks, this is the piece of info I was missing. (Missing the spacer too, but thats simple enough to make). Also explains why that bolt gets so close to the rail.
