    Toplever: I would recommend that if possible in your shop situation, that you put it in a different room. My RPC is relatively quiet, but still would want it in another room, if possible.
    Good luck....

    It looks like a Monarch, maybe from the 600 series, later than the CK's.

    Nordic15: Since I have a Nordic 15, I was wondering why you would need to pull the gear box. Not being nosy, just have a vested interest, since there aren't many of them around. Good luck.

    I was always told that softening brass is the same process as hardening steel. Heat it up to almost red and quench it in water. That is the way we anneal work hardened brass rifle cases

    Bob, to answer your question, the re-grind only affects the diameter of the cutting flutes. The shank that goes in the toolholder is un-affected. The dia. of the flutes will be a little smaller, but...

    Consider drilling a couple of 3/4" holes to thru the first slab and measure the hollow part. Also, consider pumping some kind of grout into that hollow area. That would make everything one piece, so...

    Bubbler air line in a coolant tank does much good in keeping coolant from getting rank. Just a 1/4" copper line with one end pinched off and 1/32" holes drilled about 6" apart, laying in the bottom...

    Kind of reminds me of an old armature lathe used in an old garage from the 1930's. Back when generator's and starter armatures were turned and had the mica undercut in the armature.

    Years ago, I fabricated one because the little thin lip on the original 10EE casting is a weak spot. I made it out of steel.

    I agree with Phil in Montana about the Generac's. I have a smaller one (8000-12000) and it is a piece of crap. Breakers and plugs are junk. Generac factory is no help. Don't do it.

    A 37" micrometer might qualify as "big" but not giant when compared to the 66" Starret's (and smaller) that were used in the Roll Shop at the plant where I spent almost 30 years.
