    Stanley made a tool that was called a no. 70 box scraper. It does not look like the Starrett tool, and has a curved blade and sole. I think I read many years ago that box scrapers were used to...

    Starrett No. 194 Universal Scraper, price $1.00 in 1914 Catalog No.20. It is meant for scraping wood and is missing a turned wood "guard" that was for gripping one edge of the blade to apply more...

    You will not harm a 440 V motor by trying to run it on 220 V from a VFD. You would use a VFD on this motor by only hooking it to the highspeed windings. If a 440 V motor starts on 220 V, it will...

    The electrical plate on the lathe shows it was sold with a 440 V motor. The motor is apparently the original motor, because Hardinge did use Diehl two-speed motors back then. The motor nameplate...

    In 2018, I went to the Quincy Mine in Hancock, Michigan. They have quite an impressive hoist, which, on first sight, would not lend itself to on-site turning of the drum. Built in 1918, it was shut...

    Brilliant! I would be proud to call William Philips my grandfather, though I am quite content with the ones I have.

    The collar with the serrations (for a lever collet closer) pulls straight off the end of the spindle. The collar has a small key to prevent it from rotating on the spindle, which has a keyway. Some...

    That is about as good a solution as I could suggest, with just a mill. Personally, I prefer brazed carbide tool bits in my fly cutters, and I use a diamond wheel grinder to keep the radius sharp.

    And get a VFD with a 120 V single phase input rated for a 1 HP motor. It will be much cheaper than a special motor and run off any household electrical outlet. Plus, you may find the variable speed...

    Hardinge used three-phase two-speed motors rated 3/4 HP at 1725 RPM and 3/8 HP at 875 RPM in most of their lathes and mills from 1935 to 1955 or so.

    This type of Hardinge lathe is called a TL, T-5 or T-10, but whatever the differences are, if any, they are not well defined. Tony has lots of pictures: Hardinge HLV-H Clones

    I use a knife to make the end of the wood dowel triangular. It screws into the threaded hole easier than a solid round and still marks the pitch clearly.

    By the way, be careful melting sulfur and...

    You are correct. A 7-32 is between a 6-32 and an 8-32. Here are the ASME machine screw tables from the 1914 2nd edition of American Machinists' Handbook. Note that 7-36 was the standard and 7-32...

    An old-school trick is to cast melted sulfur into a female thread or tapered hole. I have used bismuth alloy that melts at 156 degrees F in the same manner.

    My huge list of threads only has two with 22 TPI and there is no close metric pitch: 16-22 ASME machine screw and 5/16-22 BSF. In the UK, I would suspect a madly ill-chosen variation on BSF, like...

    I bought a used Maximat V10P on the factory stand in 1984 for about $500. It had been in a large electronics company's prototype/maintenance shop. I quickly decided to sell it. The lathe was in...

    Pexto and Dixon made them from cast iron, obviously the easiest way. I think 3/4" is too thin to get proper stability. The castings are much thicker around the holes. There are several Pexto...
