    I then rotated the stack of 10...

    Now I gotta hand it to you BTD.
    Super glue is one thing I would have never thought of using.
    I will try to remember that tip for the future for many things that break and are difficult to remove...

    tgolden,
    I agree with you that changing the stamping from oil to grease was done for a reason. SBL would not have just changed the stamping. Perhaps at the time it was changed, the reason was a 'new...

    Jim,
    I live in Houston Texas and it does not get cold here....ever! I wish it did, especially in the summer.

    South Bend made the 10K Variable Speed model lathe only in the years 1967 and 1968.
    I bought my 10K in 1998 and at the time South Bend was still in business.
    I called them about this lathe and was...

    Blob and Iwananew10K.....
    Thanks guys for your comments.

    Thanks guys.
    I found the set screw in the pulley with the word 'Grease' stamped above it. What kind of grease should I use? I assume I should not use oil.
    The pulley does not spin freely on the...

    BY ALL MEANS save the long bolts and include them when you sell the spacer. You will be doing someone a great favor which will reward you as well.

    Thanks Stuart.
    I will definitely have the seals in hand when I do the counter boring.
    From what I have found so far, rubber coat is better than steel body when going into aluminum counter bores....

    Silverback,
    When I bought my Acu-Rite DRO I looked a long time and at many different places because a 3 axis DRO was just super expensive for me.

    Silverback,
    The mounting brackets are from Acu-Rite. The scale is a bit pricy but is a much better set up than those battery powered add on things.
    Of course you have to have a head that has 3...

    Excuse me?
    .050 is not the depth of thread for a 20 tpi, but rather .050 is the PITCH of that thread.
    The single depth of thread is .0379 and since we have two sides to the stud the double depth...

    Here is what I get for turning a 1 inch-20tpi thread:
    Major Diameter = .495
    Minor Diameter = .4242
    Depth of thread (times 2) = .0758
    Compound rest set at 29°

    Yes, you should turn the OD first. I always turn the OD minus .005 under.
    For example, turning a 1/2-13 thread I would turn the OD to .495 rather than .500. This gives some clearance between the...

    Nothing like having a Bridgeport. It will serve you well. And yours being a 1982 makes it a fairly late model.
