    I would advise the first thing would be get an operators book if you don't have one. J and S did them for all of their machines and give good information regarding their care. They can sometimes be...

    What do you propose to do with the machine? If it for light, occasional work and there is only one tooth damaged, I would re assemble and keep an eye on it. You don't know how long the tooth has been...

    I am unfamiliar with the Index55 mill, so googled it. Plenty of info on the Lathes UK website, which also states parts are still available "off the shelf" from the manufacturer. I regularly cut gears...

    Have you tried contacting Zaklady in Tarnow, Poland? Although they are now listed as armaments manufacturers, I have always found the Polish to be very helpful. They may just be able to help.

    In my experience, eastern europeans can come across as aggresive and pushy. Even so, no reason for this guy to go on the way he did. Sorry I'm busy is a pretty understandable statement to most folks

    Some machines do use an M10 x 1.25 thread for their mirrors, and some have a right hand thread on the right side and left hand on the left side. This may be so they don't loosen in the wind? For any...

    I had an early 540 and found that hand cranking from "low" to "high" was a pain. I did look into removing the plate at the bottom of the vertical hand feed shaft and putting on a motor drive, but...

    Can you make a new quill where the wheels can be secured with a screw? Much quicker and easier to change internal wheels this way. Any chance of a photo of your current set up?

    I would use a 4 jaw chuck in the headstock of a cylindrical grinder and a female "half centre" in the tailstock to allow access along the full length of the stem. Make sure there is a chamfer on the...

    Stating the obvious here, they are to tap a 7/8"-32 left hand hole, though goodness knows what in. I reckon they are adjustable as the part being made is hardened and may shrink in that process....

    I have a Moore No.3 and it is a wonderful machine. I also have the details of the quill taper which is unique to Moore and can dig the data out for you if you decide to make anything as some adapters...

    What is the taper in your machine? I am suspecting that if it is obsolete, it may only be small and an ER25 collet and its holding capacity will be too much for your machine.

    If a 4 jaw can't do what you require, how about collets? As suggested, maybe a "Griptru", but still a mess on to get it to run true. What is the job which requires such accuracy from a chuck?

    I did just the same to get a Bridgeport into a friends workshop. No real problems in getting the table off, but it will need at least 2 of you due to the weight. Put it back on straight away if you...
