    Your 'new' lathe looks very clean inside.

    The typical problem with the 10ee lathes is the pump in the apron that pumps lubricant to the ways.. With as clean and well maintained as it appears,...

    Brass vs Aluminum vs 'mystery-metal'

    I too like the brass dials on the WWII era lathes.
    My 11/1941 lathe [ex-Eastman Kodak] has a white-metal threading dial. It is a bit difficult to read.

    I purchased a 10ee for parts, ca....
