    Thanks Joe.

    Is it always good practice to use alignment pins when constructing a piece like this? I am guessing you install the pins before drilling and tapping for screws to pull the assembly...

    Joe, could a new piece be made without welding the spacer?

    I see three rectangular pieces, 2 holes drilled and reamed, and 4 holes drilled and tapped (if stacked or done as an assembly). Ugly but...

    Hmmmmm........ so I could use this as a table feed on a mill? Maybe I don't need to get rid of this after all (as he puts it back on his shelf).

    I am trying to clear out some stuff.

    One of the items I have is a 1/2 HP variable speed, reversible DC motor. This probably has pretty limited application on old lathes, right? Doesn't DC lose...

    Another option, if you cannot find original parts, is to make your own jack shaft. It is only a three step pulley; you could pick one of these up easily. Add a couple of pillow blocks, a large drive...

    By "get it going" I meant a motor and VFD. That can be done for $150. Especially if you buy an old motor off Craigslist.

    Keep it. Get the motor and VFD first. Then the tail stock, then the change gears (if you want to thread). You can get it running for $150 or less. Tail stock for $100, gears for $100-150 off of eBay.

    Nice video.

    What a complicated machine to run!

    Hurray, for the use of safety glasses/goggles!
