    At the time I did a lot of searching on brazing cast iron and the Safety-Silv 45 was recommended, but I don't remember where now. I bought the rod and flux from Amazon at the time, and I see that...

    I have mended several small cast iron pieces with Harris Safety-Silv 45 brazing rod. I degreased them and painted the broken faces with white Stay-Silv but got much better wetting when I sprinkled...

    I know from experience designing small motor drivers that switching too fast can blow the H-bridges (I warned the engineer and he did it anyway - made a nice little light show), so I'm pretty much...

    Looks like four of them to me, a 1949, two 1954's and a 1962.

    I have a Model 200 that I picked up three years ago from a local retired machinist. I also had a good main spindle bearing (after I cleaned and re-greased it), and replaced the tail bearing. They're...

    Did you find this one? The max speed trim pot is on the lower board.

    Factory Rebuilt Round Dial on eBay

    Pic of the new badge is fuzzy, but it looks like they did it in 1988. I assume that they added the DRO while they had it.

    I just noticed that it also has a threading stop rod, which was apparently optional. There appears to be a toggle switch, which I assume has something to do with it, down there on the tail end of it...

    I asked:

    "Have you had the cover off to see if the chain still connects the speed control knob and the large rheostat? Of course, if the knob just spins that would be a pretty good indication that...

    I asked, too. It could be as simple as a broken chain between the knob and rheostat/pot. Someone here with first-hand knowledge may weigh in with other possibilities. If you're close you can go find...

    Someone else posted pictures here of their disassembled dial assembly some time ago and it gave me just the clues I needed to build something similar for my little Logan lathe. My video might give...

    Sharp eyes, Travis! I have family 45 minutes from it, and I'm tempted to ask somebody to check it out. It could be quite a prize.

    Think outside the box. You may be able to mount the read head on the cross slide facing down with a U-channel covering it, and mount the scale on the carriage facing up in a fixed position. You...

    Thanks. I work at Sandia, and plan to retire in a few weeks (after 38 years). I keep an eye out, and have picked up a couple of machines that are fine for my modest needs. Honestly, as much...

    You broke my heart on that one. I went down and looked at it. Ugly-ass paint, but otherwise a good-looking and smooth-running machine well worth the effort to restore. She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed wouldn't...

    I've recently been thinking along exactly the same lines. I have created an electronic lead screw for an old Logan lathe that works very well, but the lathe itself is the big limitation.

    I would...
