    Or 14 1/2 (sharpened tag says 183C , 14 1/2)

    Note 1 1/8 spindle bore - so no 5C collets

    Good info here (see the several editions of catalog 100 in forties)

    The SBL Workshop - Catalog Index

    John - you keep mentioning BREAKERS. What is between the breaker and the motor?

    What do you use to turn off and turn on the lathe?

    :D I hate being the old curmudgeon, but you are barking up the wrong tree. It was running - how can the motor be needful?

    It makes odd noise instead of running = single phasing = switch gear...

    Hope the lube system gets at least some consideration - due to modern rates of travel

    Strongly suggests single phasing - which very likely could be at least one set of crappy contacts in what ever switch gear is in use

    Smallest in my 1920 catalog is a 14"

    Thumbnail is a 16 heavy I scanned long ago - there are also Medium Duty versions

    Fix the busted one?

    (I will assume break in mid length)

    1. Record length of broken one

    2. Cut out about 1/4" of length at break

    3. Make l/r hand custom "bolts" with hex in middle
