    It's entirely possible that the hole was misdrilled by the fitter. You could check by feeling for an intersecting hole at/near the bottom of that one, I don't expect you'll find one.

    While it would work with a straight line I would think that nylon tubing is likely to kink under the saddle with the bends going to the manifold. Copper worked fine for me and was a lot easier than...

    I disagree on the cross slide - you want to maintain the height of the saddle over the nut as well as the center of the cross slide on the saddle. Yes, you can shim the nut or take material off it,...

    I wouldn't even bother trying to bend it, I'd just turn it. Looks like maybe a 30 minute part if you only bother to match the 2 diameters that matter and the length between them.

    I'm not sure that I understand you correctly. You're putting Turcite on the top of the saddle in the cross slide dovetails? If so that will leave the soft way material exposed at one end or the...

    Are you putting the Turcite on the saddle or the slide? Slide would be more 'normal'. Somewhere around here I have some images of my process.

    (One thing I haven't mentioned before is that you're...

    When you're in there pull and check the heaters (left and right of the overload reset button). The numbers there will give their OL amps, a second call on voltage albeit a little indirect.

    If you drop the cross slide on the saddle you'll have more problems than the nut - IIRC the clearance between the cross slide and the top of the apron is taken by a sliding shield and it would also...

    I should have mentioned: Best we can tell it's a early 60's lathe, and it's not a servo-shift.

    It sounds as though the whole of the switch mechanism is gone, the lever under the gearbox really...

    Am I the odd man out here? All I see is that the studs are going to be off by half a turn, but it's not like the threads in either the plate or stud are timed. I usually end up moving the studs in...

    My wife did in fact buy me a nice Gerstner many years ago (looking at their site it's a 2610 at $1895) but I'm sure that it didn't cost *that* much at the time. I've since added another (bought from...

    Yup, it's the Quick Slowdown Relay pulling in.
