    Price dropped to $800 each, OBO.

    I am also willing to ship at buyer's expense, though it would likely be expensive.

    Hey Calvin,

    Good to know, I was hoping someone with some 1420 experience would chime in. Truth be told, most of the time I've been running it has been in pretty cold weather (in an unheated shop)...

    It's definitely of substantial construction, the manual does say that the sight glass is intended to indicate flow through the headstock, not pressure. What's bugging me though is that it's just a...

    Thanks John. As I've been using the lathe more, I've been noticing the flow (which is actually just a steady drip)seems to be increasing. I'm guessing that stuff is clogged up inside, but I think...

    It does have a pressurized oil system (about 50psi) supplied to the headstock from an external oil pump that's belt driven off of the main motor. The steady drips I'm seeing would definitely indicate...

    Are they all supposed to have one? Also John, do you have any insight on what you're supposed to see in the sight glass while it's running?

    My manual has a pretty good picture of what the filter housing looks like and the plumbing for it, the manual also describes a lever that can be turned to clean the filter out. Mine doesn't have...

    No.4 Oil Pressure and Flow

    Hey guys, couple questions about the oil system.

    My machine is up and running now, and the oil pressure gauge is reading at a shaky 45-50psi. Also, the oil sight glass takes a while to show any...

    Hey John, if at all possible it would be great to post photos or transcribe this serial information into a sticky post for this forum.

    Thanks Dave. The oil and coolant pumps on this particular machine are mechanically driven off of the spindle drive belt, which is turned by the main electric motor.

    I swapped the "A" and "B" legs going into the power disconnect box on the lathe and it worked! Previously I had tried swapping "A" and "C".

    Also my theory about the oil pump was correct, and now...

    The starter cap in the converter definitely drops out after thr motor is running, but I can't imagine that would affect the direction of rotation right?

    Ok cool, that was the consensus that my electrician and I had too. I'll report back in a bit after I try it. Thanks for the advice.

    Dave, can you explain in simpler terms which contactors / coils you're referring to? I'm guessing they're inside the starter box.

    No electrical reverse switch, lathe does that with gearing.

    Lathe motor is 7.5hp, the lathe shifter has a neutral position so it can be started out of gear.

    The static converter is rated up to...
  18. Help - Lathe motor running backwards - no oil pressure

    My electrician and I got a 220v single phase circuit ran for my lathe yesterday, hooked up the static phase converter, fired up the lathe, and it's not making...

    Thanks for the info guys. I have that book as well, I'll make note of those figures.
  20. Are W&S Collets Interchangeable Between No.3, No.4, and No.5?

    Could a collet for a No.5 be used on a No.4 etc. if it's still a size within the machine's capacity?

    This may be an obvious question since the collet boxes are marked with the model (No.3 etc.) so...

    Another potential option would be to try persuading Small Tools (Gahr) to make tutorials since they're seemingly the last best source of parts and rebuild knowledge.

    That's a great idea, I'll see what I can do about scanning it since it's a bound book.
