    Success! My little torch did the job once again! Just have to trim them down. Drill holes for the pins and wait for the 3/8 dies to arrive in the mail.

    Cool, glad it worked. My "shop" is actually a spare bedroom. Not the best situation, but you do what you gotta do. I'm slowly getting back into electronics, probably end up doing that on the kitchen table.

    LOL! My "shop" is a bedroom as well! Hilarious. As you said, you got to do what you have to do....

    This machine is pretty much done. Just have to clean a bunchba random of stuff that came with lathe. I found the saddle lick and installed. The tension arm thing came out great, works great.

    Very nice!

    Sorry to even mention this, but I'd like to see the lathe painted blue like the motor, and the motor painted black like the lathe.

    Nice job on the restoration!!
    Install the new rod you made on the motor bracket from the outside in so it will be inline with the tension lever.

    Dal, the Rustoleum has a very slow drying solvent. I use it for various projects and bake it out to drive out the volatiles and harden it up nicely for oil resistance etc. Slow heat your painted parts in the oven at the lowest setting it will do. After an hour bump it up to 200 then another hour then 250. Done.
    *A lathe bed miiiight be difficult to stuff in your oven.

    A 100-watt IR heat lamp will work nicely, too. When I painted the engine on my welder, I left a heat lamp aimed at the engine block for about a month, it came out rock hard.

    I'm going to need a bigger oven! Its warming up again next week, I'll just have to settle for natural curing.

    Nice job on the cosmetics.

    I know a 9" SB isn't capable of grabbing the operator and turning him into hamburger- but I wouldn't want the drum switch so far off to the side of the machine. If not for safety (which I think is still applicable)- for convenience. You should be able to reach it even when standing at the far end of the bed.

    It wasn't original on the spindle gear cover?

    The way i have it now... It is inline. I thought i was going to do it the way you mentioned but it wouldnt line up nicely. The way i have it now it does.

    I actually baked a few parts. Works great. Nice hard strong enamel coating.

    CRVIV-- I was thinking the pic could have given us the wrong "optical conclusion" It DOES look out of line in the pic, probably the camera angle and such... By the way, NICE job on the lathe restoration.
