    The threads are imperial threads per inch. SPDL is the change gear that goes on top driven from the spindle, SCR is the change gear that goes on the lead screw. The lathe probably dates from around...

    3600 rpm motor is way too fast for the lathe, even 1750 is too fast. You don't want any more than 600 rpm for the fastest spindle speed for a 14" lathe with Babbitt bearings.

    It looks like there is a screw for adjustment of the table where it hooks over at the top, that would need to be tight first. You should check for squareness between the table top and the front of...

    Do you have a 48" lathe or a 14" lathe. I think .001" clearance for a 14" lathe is good and go up from there.

    It looks like it was a surface plate but with those gouges in it now, it is a nice granite step.

    I have the same belt on my Garvin vertical mill and it does not slip but it is tight. For leather belting the tension that is recommended is 600 pounds of tension per 1 square inch of cross section...

    It looks like a Greaves Klusman lathe that was a flat belt drive that someone was converting to gears.

    It is a number 24 vertical mill and will have a #10 Brown & Sharpe taper spindle. It is cheap but it is too far gone as far as I am concerned. Too many missing original parts and too much damage.

    Yes, you can remove the caps and spindle and the lathe will be fine although it is much more convenient to stitch the belt than to remove the spindle to get the belt on.

    It is a Crossley H. I was working on it for a customer and I was experimenting with hot tube lengths and I was using the countershaft of the lathe for starting of the engine.

    Yes, no room for that weight on my lathe. It has been a while since I looked at my lathe and I thought it was gibbed but when you said yours was weighted, I second guessed myself. The lathe in your...

    Joe, I could use some pictures of the carriage weight also how it hangs on the carriage. Mine does not have one and with the crossmembers in the center of the bed, I didn't think it used one.

    You can probably get a stock gear and modify/combine it with what you have.

    Joe, the tailstock spindle of my lathe is only stamped with a 7, no date.

    That looks to be the same as my Lathe & Morse. Mine is an 18" swing with 3MT centers. The top of my tailstock is stamped with a 66 and a 7.

    You can safely braze the crack. It is an unconstrained crack and it will not crack again.

    Can you post a video of the operation? It doesn't look like the belt wants to move at all. The countershaft belt on my Putnam planer is only about 4' from the line shaft and those tight and loose...

    John, That is a nice looking planer. The belt shifter needs to be on the leading side belt. In your photo the belt should be running down, the belt should be good and tight too. And obviously the...

    It sounds like this is your first lathe. The spindle inside diameter at the chuck end is tapered for a dead center and is probably 4, 4 1/2 or 5 Morse taper. You say it turns something out of round,...
