Re: Jet 1236P

The clamp deal depends on a groove cut in the OD of the register. I looked at the Logan and. South Bend today and neither had enough material to do this. But honestly, I cannot recall the last time I needed a lathe to run in reverse. I do remember once I hit reverse by accident and got hurt. I no lo...

Re: Jet 1236P

The G9249 had a simple chuck lock. The collar of the backing plate was drilled for two clamps that hooked the plate to the spindle. Probably could be retrofit pretty easily if there is room in there.

Re: Jet 1236P

Those old Jet and Enco 10X and 12X lathes from the 1980s and 1990s are stout machines. I have had 3 so far, all with hardened beds and accurate as heck. For parts, Grizzly G9249 was made up until a few years ago, many parts fit those old machines.

Re: Buffing Aluminium

Duragloss and other companies make "Aluminum Cleaner and Brightener". I think the active ingredient is phosphoric acid. It works quickly and looks great, but it does leave a dull surface. If you really want it shiny, find someone with a buffer. 10 minutes and you can see yourself in it. Worst case, ...

Re: Rockwell/Delta 17-600 Drill Press Table

I just happen to have a virgin table from a 20" Enco DP. 3.5" column.

You may be able to use other tables if you can match the column diameter

Re: milling tool I have not seen

I think 3/16 is a common pilot hole. I probably have a suitable cutter, but I don't know what to call them

Hey! Thank you for that link! I've only read the first few pages and am already amazed at how similar our situation is to theirs. However, in place of mud, we have rocks. :)

Re: Cheap face mills

I have several, from 1.125" to 4".
Using the larger ones on my Millrite hasn't been very satisfactory.
At lowest RPM it makes sparks, even on soft steel or cast iron.
