    It should also be noted that this is a gap bed lathe. On the surface, it appears to be nice and clean. Hopefully, it has minimal wear.

    Are you sure it is not a 7/16-12 and that the threads are rounded from use or crude method of manufacture?

    I have a tiny bit of experience on an Axelson. I found that if the sump/filter was dirty, the oil pressure would be too low to operate the clutch easily. Clean system and easy clutch operation.

    First of all, you can make statistics prove or disprove anything you want. All it takes is using slanted data, or using the appropriate analysis technique.

    I don't want to get ahead of myself too much. I have not put it into operation yet. But if the keys stay in place and the new driver is hard enough, then I think the fix will outlast me.

    The new driver was machined from a bar of 4140, C25 steel. I am only a shade tree machinist and I thought C25 would be about as hard as I could machine. I might have used harder material, but I do...

    I used the DRO for the first time today. I was pretty happy with it but I wish the update rate on the readout was about double what it is now.

    1) My drawings are mostly sketches for me. They are not complete, and they will most certainly require tweaking for another lathe.

    Use a hammer to move the deformed metal back to where it came from. Only then you can proceed to use files. Buy a drag link socket to fit the cheese (Fillister) head screws.
