Re: Delta Milwaukee "Toolmaker" v-belt pulley sizes?

I finally got the opportunity to watch the Suburban guy do the wheel balancing and trueing thing. He is working with a surface grinder and we have T&C grinders, so don't over think it. I primarily use Norton SG wheels, they are pricey but last quite a bit longer between dressing. Their number is 5SG...

Re: Drill Bit Storage for a Hoarder

Hah, I am with neanderman. 2 full sets, a small handful of duplicates and a large handful of taper shank bigger drills. Oh and a HF set that still has the retaining pin in the case.
I wouldn't have room in the garage for 9 cabinets, much less be able to populate them.

Re: Delta Milwaukee "Toolmaker" v-belt pulley sizes?

WO2P: If you need any further help or pictures, just ask. The spindle taper is 3.00 in/ft so be sure your wheel adapter is the same. Wm SOPKO & Sons Co.,30030 Lakeland Blvd., Wickliffe, OH 44092 is one of the few suppliers that I have found for this wheel adapter. The part number is 24-816 RH or LH ...

Re: Delta Milwaukee "Toolmaker" v-belt pulley sizes?

WO2P: Here it is, and the reason I have never tried to adjust anything. Yours is a different situation, though, since you got your toolmaker in a box, in KIT form. :)

I never looked up Velocite E so I don't know if Velocite 6 is the same, but it works.

Re: Delta Milwaukee "Toolmaker" v-belt pulley sizes?

WO2P: When I got the machine in the late '80s I used hardware store 3 in 1 and then later changed to hardware store 'Turbine oil'. Then after listening to these astute gentlemen on this board, and reading the manual, I bought Mobile Spindle Oil. Spindle oil.jpg This leaks out constantly, but I am no...

Re: class of fit for barrel thread tap

Many years ago I swapped out a barrel from a S&W M&P and found out the hard way that the frames are relatively soft. So beware when applying too much torque to the unsupported frame. I ended up casting a cerrosafe block that encompassed the entire barrel frame junction so it could be gripped in a vi...

Re: Interrupted Cut Removes Tool Point

I sure hope that the 2 steel rules between the part and the chuck are secured in some way. It would be painfully unpleasant if either or both decide to leave due to centrifugal forces. If that is an 8" chuck then the circumferential speed at 300rpm is about 10 fps. Enough to put out an eye or slice ...

Re: Delta Milwaukee "Toolmaker" v-belt pulley sizes?

WO2P: With my freezing fingers and best eyeball, the PITCH diameters of the spindle pulley are 2-3/8 and 2 inches. The PITCH diameters of the motor pulley are 5-1/8 and 4-3/4 inches. This means the ratios are 2.56:1 and 2:1. The users manual says that for a 60 cycle motor the speeds are 3200 and 420...

Cincinnati 1-12 and 1-18 Plain Automatic milling machines

This summer past, a friend of mind bought a couple of machines at a machine shop auction. Since he was the big winner, the auctioneer volunteered to give him some Cincinnati Milacron user manuals for the subject machines. Apparently the person who actually bought the mill either didn't want the manu...

Re: Delta Milwaukee "Toolmaker" v-belt pulley sizes?

WO2P There are 2 models of Tool Maker Grinders. The older unit is the 24-105 and has a cast iron base. The newer model is the 24-150 or 24-151 and has a sheet metal cabinet. Which do you have? I can help with the pulleys for the older model by measuring what is on my machine. I can't help with the l...

Re: 3 jaw chuck

Hah. I had the 3 sided experience just last week. I have a 1958 Atlas 3 jaw that has been used hard. I chucked up a piece of 1/8 dia brazing rod to make a 1/16 dia pin. Floppity-flop, 3 sides. I ended up making it from a piece of 1/4 dia brass. Right on, gentlemen.

Re: Material for Small Vise

This is the type of hobby vise I have made for holding small parts. Both are made from 1018 plate, or whatever I had. The larger one is 1 x 2 x 5, The smaller is 3/4 x 1 x 3, but they can be made any size that suits your purpose. Clamping flanges or threaded holes or whatever can be added to hold th...
