    Hi setlab,

    Hi all,

    Seeking help in some reparations here.

    Joe, thank you very much. Very kind words indeed.

    I have sometimes thought about the journey such a machine would have to make to get it to Australia. No super-carriers and pre-dating shipping...

    M.B., Conrad, thanks, it sure was an effort - but, better to have one more BS#2 in the world than the cheap garden ornaments it may have become. :-)

    Conrad, interesting what you say about how...

    Hi all,

    About 2.5 years ago I collected some boxes of rusted parts for a Brown & Sharp #2 Surface Grinder SN # 8183. I believe it to be 1928. The location is Melbourne, Australia and there are...

    As for the lathe, I've not seen one like it - have you scanned lathes.co.uk ?

    Wow, thank you all - that is quite some replies. Apologies for what seems like a late response but the time diff between the US and Melbourne/Australia can be a killer.

    Muckalee, that sounds like...

    Hi all,

    FWIW, I run an 8" 4 jaw on my 10L. It looks pretty darn big but does the job fine. I don't spin it too fast.

    I have a 6" 4 jaw as well, but the extra holding capacity on the 8" and the bore size...

    Suffolk Brian, thank you. That is precisely why this thread exists - to gives others confidence that it can be done. I am by no means experienced at such things but faced with tearing it down there...

    John, Tom,

    thanks. I figure it is going to be some form of worm on the column handwheel. I am curious to see how B&S did it on the #2. Like was it an attachment that augmented the stock...

    Thanks Dennis,

    If the 'float' thing didn't work then my last course of action would have been to blue them maybe start filing or something. Btw, I think maybe what looks like flaws in the metal...

    I am happy to report that I managed to remove the (rather stubborn) alignment pin and that floating the belt hosing base 'tub' has fixed the rattle. I mean it is completely gone. So strike up one...

    Thanks Maschine,

    Apols for late reply - this 16 hours time difference is a killer!

    Hi Maschine, thanks. Not those bolts in the video - the alignment pins. I don't believe the head can be floated with those three bolts. I assumed that to float it the alignment pins needed to be...

    Okay, small correction on 'pins' in above reply. Seemed easier to explain when I was writing the above .. but .. there is actually only one pin. And I be darned if I can figure out how to get it...

    RobertoC - sorry I missed you're post. Apologies for late reply. I'll search for it!

    Hi all,

    After a top-end refurb using a H&W kit with bearings and brakes etc on my 1981 (UK) Bridgeport 2j2 I still get some rattle. Not in back gear or neutral so I am figuring it is the dog...
