    Once it's sold, this topic becomes pointless. Just let it fade away with time. For whatever reason this site no longer allows me to either local save the images or link them remotely. I've tried...

    My take is that it's a 10" from the '40's. The quick change box is from a '40's machine. The carriage seems to be significantly more robust than one from a SB or Logan.

    Several on ebay. This seems like a good price. Looks just like the one on my Logan. I always wondered if they would interchange?

    Is there something special about the motors which makes it impossible to swap for different ones? I'd think a 3 phase step-up transformers would fix this too.

    Not that I'm recommending it but...

    After my first lathe, a flat belter, I've set some rules for myself such as no flat belts, no plain bearings. Too me the hassle factor of a really old lathe. The constant fixing, maintenance and the...

    Sharpie rubs off. I'd take lots and lots of pictures. They cost nothing and you can document each part you disassemble.

    Automatic transmissions that handle 100's of ft/lbs of torque have smallish torringtons between the clutch packs. My impression was that they were fairly robust.

    $200 might be low but I wouldn't spend that for it. The flat belt is a real turn-off. It's not that it's a bad drill, it's just that it's old and dangerous to use. As something to collect, it's...

    1 - The original owner of the house lost it somehow so it went to a sheriffs sale.

    2 - 20 days later, the new owners left a relatively nice note on the door...

    I noticed that too. Sort them into batches, toss them through the air into a pile.

    These days all those bearing people were probably automated out of existence.

    It was a good video. The hand made bearings was a bit of a revelation. It doesn't suggest they're irreplaceable.

    You already have a 60 gallon Husky. I was thinking it would make more sense to upgrade your more modern compressor over messing with an old one. What part's too loud on the husky? Maybe upgrade it...

    That Sheldon looks nice. It's built quite a bit heavier than a Logan. What do people think of these Rockwells?

    My advice is don't buy anything with flat belts or plain bearings. Save your money for a Logan or something like it. In the same class but you can get parts and they use real bearings.

    When did flat-belt go away? I was thinking it's pre-WW2 just because of the flat belt and plain bearings.
