    The arm that's bolted to the back with the upper pulley probably isn't stock. I had the exact same arm with a different wide pulley on my Hardinge. I tracked it down to a company in PA I believe from...

    I was happy to get $1200 for mine. Mine had a taper attachment though.

    This is what you do when your wife says "sell it" and you don't want to. You price it high and then later on tell the wife "I tried". There's a Galk mill near me that's been for sale for years now...

    I had a similar issue. I could only get images to show if I locally hosted them (I mean on this website) for some reason foreign image links stopped working. It used to work. I suspect it was...

    The current Gits units seem to be Chinese crap. I installed some new ones on my Logan. The springs stick out and stab me ever time I use them.

    I was thinking about making some out of aluminum.

    IGBT versus SCR. I've noticed many older TIG and MIG welders used SCR's instead of IGBT.

    Pretty sure I was eyeballing that one too. I'd just spent my last fun money dollar on a new welder. Nothing new 'till the fun money builds back up.

    A doctor told my sister in law that all old people are depressed. It's just the nature of the beast. I don't necessarily agree but there's probably something to it.

    It's at the end of the bed. Might be under the tailstock. It's stamped right next to the front V way.

    That hole and the bracket looking thing bolted on looks non-stock to me.

    I know it's probably sacrilege but I swap out all the square heads to allens on my gear. I toss them all into a bag I keep near the lathe in case a purist buys it from me some day.

    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.

    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...

    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.
