    Default Restoration identifying odd items

    So I am 99% complete on lathe restoration (still need to wire VFD back up and finish gearbox plate)

    Alongside the usual leftover box of bolts etc I am not sure where they came from.... I also have a couple of items and accessories I can seem to identify and was wondering if anyone recognises them?

    I don't think any of the parts fit the SB. The casting with the keyed by is probably from a grinder, maybe a tool and cutter grinder. The other stuff???

    The casting sure looks like the swivel base to a Palgrem vise. Have one here somewhere.

    That's interesting; there was a lot of accessories included when I bought the lathe. Unfortunately the previous owner had passed away and it was his son selling it so I never got a full description of things. I understand he made clocks and there is an odd setup with an additional motor and dividing plates I think he may have used for cutting gears.

    There was no other vice part so maybe it was repurposed; do you have a picture of one?

    Take a look at this publication at Vintage Machinery.org.

    http://vintagemachinery.org/pubs/2459/16973.pdf

    There are several different swivel bases being used on these products.
