    I'm wondering if your motor is Single Phase like the OP's motor. I'm thinking the centrifugal switch on a Single Phase motor will engage the start winding when RPM's are that low.

    I use 2 contactors, and yes momentary push buttons. On smaller RPCcs a relay can be used. On contactor/relay (large enough to handle RPC motor and lathe motor) self locks like in a push button start....

    You have 2HP on the lathe and intend to use a 10HP motor as an RPC? Kind a bit of over kill but will work. Problem is starting 10HP. You would be better off getting something like a 2 or 3HP motor....

    Photo of the motor will help! Odd the RPM is listed as 1200 RPM, most motors do not provide the synchronous speed (speed with no load on the motor that is in sync with the 60Hz AC line) Usually the...

    I'm sure that changing the pulleys to allow use of a 1800 RPM motor will work as long as heavy cutting is not intended. Slowing down the output would require putting a smaller pulley on the motor,...

    Constant Velocity had to begin earlier than 1910, I had a Bullard VTL that Bullard said was made in 1910, it was constant velocity, gears were in oil. I was surprised it was that old! Had an old B&S...

    [QUOTE=Helibee;3641395]Thank you. I currently own a ('41-'42?) Hendey cone head .

    Not sure if Hendey continued making the cone head into the '40s. I think the cone heads ended before the constant...

    1959 SN begins with 39026 and 1960 SN begins with 39049 so your machine was built about the middle of 1959. As I mentioned by Lars Machine Inc.

    You might want to consider your lathe skill. That 16" Hendey will swing larger than 16" as most older top lathes made in the USA will. That is quite large for someone that's not experienced will...

    That SN indicates is an older Hendey late 1927 Vintage. It's worth little more than scrap. Though photos will help. Those older Hendey are good lathes, well made and I consider them one of the best...

    My 1-22 came with riser (see post #35) It's not like the typical BP type riser that is a ring. It fits in the Dovetail and is cut with a Dovetail to fit the ram. Increases height dam near 6" if my...

    12mm X 1.5mm tap and die came today. Tap fits the nut I have so it is 1.5mm! Turned the strut rod to 12mm and used the die to cut the threads, came out perfect! I guess my thread measurement using...

    Ground 55° tool with sharp point, didn't try to radius it. Machined a blank .468" with a .412" pilot. Used the Starrett protractor set to 27.5° and used the chuck face that I know is square with no...

    Definitely not 12mm X 1.75 or 1.25. I have both taps. I can see it's not 1.25 as it is like looking at 1/2-13 and 1/2-20. Visually I can see it's not typical 1.25 thread size but did try the taps,...
