    That's before my time I'm afraid Sami. I've worked on the later " D " types quite a lot, they had plain bearings for the facing slide spindle but its about 30 to 35 years since I last had my head...

    I agree with your last sentence but I'd machine the base down and fit a 1/4" thick plate rather than a thin shim. Fasten it down with countersunk screws.

    Regards Tyrone.

    The one I worked on years ago had the common style of split tapered phosphor bronze bearing that you see on old lathes. You could adjust the running clearance up at the grinding wheel end. The...

    Hi Matthew, It's horses for courses. Capstan and turret lathes are designed for volume production. You'd set the screw and nut up and it might stay like that for weeks on longish runs. If you have...

    It's few years ago since I had the spindle out of a DSG but I'm pretty sure they were " Timken " bearings and not " Gamet ". The customer bought them and I fitted them so I don't know how much they...

    Err on the side of caution both in the amount of stickout and the revs you run at. I've seen it happen about 3 times in my working life. Even big bars will bend like an Allen key if provoked. You'd...

    Hi Ed, I never worked on the " Herbert " No 5's. The " Herberts " I worked on didn't have a foot switch.

    Lots of them did have threading. You had a basic gearbox in conjunction with a series of short ( 12" long ) interchangeable lengths of lead screw and a series of inter changeable nuts.

    I'm in favour but keep it brief , I don't want to embarrass the rest of you with my achievements.

    Me too, if you consider " Auto-Wards " to be NC. What year would that be ? I think I went there about 1974.

    They were great little machines. Well prove design and manufacture. Easy to operate as long as you aren't a giant. I would imagine spares are still easy to get although "Wards" went to the wall years...

    That should have been the plan in the first place given that they were selling them to third world airlines.
