Re: Lathe comparison

The later Logans had the L00 taper like the Clausings. Did I say pretty? Sure but does it perform ? By most accounts...well, I don't read most accounts. I'm satisfied with what I have. One has an L00 taper and the Jacobs Flex collets' chuck goes right on fine.(No draw bar). It is unusual to think th...

Re: Lathe comparison

Some years ago I was able to get close to some Powermatic lathes. They were striking pretty in visual and the ways they would work. They are still Logan Lathes, Logan Actuator with parts available. Oh, I mentally kicked myself in my ass of a head for have been so already stuffed.

Re: Need a way to turn a 30 tpi screw.

Rejoining the actual topic; the dog for holding to center are different designs. You will note they are "off balance" with the iron ones. That also means they were turned slowly.

Re: Need a way to turn a 30 tpi screw.

The tulip tree itself, wasn't the problem. Trees work together. When millions of them are burned and taken down, that changes things. A communion of trees we never think about were the buffer to those which afterwards receive full force. Windy City used to be Chicago but it is everywhere now. There ...

Re: The Packard V 8

Straight 8's are huge different topic. When you look at the long hoods from the even 1940's those vehicles would take either. When I worked in a junk yard, I wondered about those grand long engines. Tremendous torque. The Hudsons were something else and even the 6 -cyl were huge . I maybe saw one Hu...

Re: What is it???

Man. I have to be very careful at guessing about things these days. For an example there was a bunch of stuff which appeared to be some type resonance comparator. Optics which didn't seem related... It was the early "light" stick for csi to detect , well, blood. Apparently there were separate sectio...

Re: The Packard V 8

Okay Ed. How would it have worked back then? They had so much invested into their engine and total fit and tuning.. they didn't want to go down with succumbing to another power plant. and still go down. At some point we will see some of these engines and the vehicles they powered. It isn't supposed ...
