  1. I have been eagerly awaiting news, but I didn't...

    I have been eagerly awaiting news, but I didn't want to bug you about it. :D

    A lost Pacemaker purchase is what led me to find this Series 61. Having it, I feel great appreciation for it, as well...

    That is awesome ! I like that a lot. Wish i could incorporate that on mine.

    I didn't forget, or give up the idea either. Just didn't get that far yet :D. The thread you were thinking of is here:...
  3. I'd prefer zig zag as well, but what do you do,...

    I'd prefer zig zag as well, but what do you do, fill it in, then cut a zig zag ? Or cut crosses into existing single straight line.

    This is not my thread, but I will surely address oil system. In...

    Sure ! But if I'd known I'd make it this far, might take better care of myself. Could be a catch 22 though, maybe we made it this far by being reckless. :D

    I'm not a 9" expert, so consider that really. Need to confirm what I say here with a 9" owner. What I'm saying I know applies to 13 - 16", but from what I have seen, I believe applies to 9 and 10" as...

    The grand total of mine I put in the 400 lb range. And I've had it off and apart to know.

    Based on your beast compound rest/tool post set up, being rather larger than mine, I would think your tail...

    Hey ! Some of us are at the age we need to think more and man-handle less. :D

    About a month ago I thought I blew a hip out after a real nice date night with the wife. Could barely walk for a week....
  9. I didn't bring it up yet in this thread, but in...

    I didn't bring it up yet in this thread, but in my other thread we were discussing totally divorcing the carriage lube system from the apron. That talk started about here:
    Getting a Monarch Series...

    I was thinking the clutch lever was gone from yours, it didn't cross my mind you might have the inside collar. Give me a day or two, lets see how I do.

    On another note :D, you had pulled the apron...
  11. I have four major rebuilds after I finish this...

    I have four major rebuilds after I finish this machine. I've made a decision, I think :D. No more new machines till I clear some floor space. That plus a bunch of smaller stuff I need to get squared...

    My series 61 from 1956 does not have rapid traverse. But I do have the push pin towing mechanism.

    I've heard some find the push pin mechanism cumbersome to hold the pin while rolling the apron...

    That's not a terrible idea at all. With the mill you could use a rotary chuck with degree wheel for the 4 points. Little bit better control fine feeding cross and long. . .

    I was thinking a little...
  14. Dammit, I wish you would have piped up sooner !...

    Dammit, I wish you would have piped up sooner ! :D

    Googling around I did find some offerings, and broach cut stuff. I didn't exhaust my search, but nothing would be a straight up replacement...

    Wear mostly :D. My guess is a shaper originally to make it a square hole, or using a lathe unpowered like a shaper. Which is the route I'm going to attempt.

    mllud22 had suggested essentially...

    My 1962 10ee, which is line to be rebuilt, has a single groove on both the saddle and the cross slide ways.

    As a repair, or upgrade, wondering if that single groove can be crossed with a few other...

    To finish disassembly, there are two allen set screws, 180 apart on the end collar. Here we see one:

    332360

    You need to fully remove set screws to get it apart:

    Once apart we can...

    Removing the two allen head bolts, I got the apron's clutch lever assembly up on the bench. The snap ring on each end actually holds a steel plate and a felt behind it:

    I didn't find it in the manual I was looking, but what I think the shoe you mention is, is upside down in the pic I posted. If I flip it over it looks like your pic:

    Woot ! Many many thanks to adh2000. I feel like Johnny Cash, "One piece at a time. . ." :D

    I was missing the 3 doors around the base, and from this I was able to get the two front doors, and most...

    Big chips get pushed out of the way. Its the small or finite stuff that gets embedded in felts that I don't like. I try rinsing them out on occasion as Mcload suggested. But I look to replace every...

    You most likely have corrosion between shaft and bushings. I've had atleast one stuck that way. Once fully a part you can clean it out nice and it will work nice.

    One funny thing though, I pretty...

    Another item I want to address in the apron is the oil pump, and oil system. Dropping the oil pan off the bottom of apron. A bunch of pasty old garbage:
