    Where do they normally stamp the timing marks? I was aware that they would be matched but I couldn’t find any marks. I made sure to preserve the original alignment when I reassembled them.

    Thanks...

    I started work on the PIV. Interesting that it is dated 1960, the machine is a 1939. I guess the PIV had been replaced.

    The speed control cleaned up nicely. I love the cast bronze conical speed dial. The others I have seen in photos are flat.

    Looks good, maybe I should do something similar.

    How much does this increase the humidity of your workspace? Enough to worry about causing rust?

    On my lathe, the flex shaft that connects the speed control to the PIV is just a wire rope. Surely this is not original, right? Do any of you guys with PIV models mind taking a look and letting me...

    I like the idea but I wouldn't cut up the lathe for it. Maybe you could get a smaller motor and fit it inside the housing somehow. The RPM would have to be related to the spindle RPM, right? Maybe...
