Re: FS 11" Delta/Rockwell Metal Lathe Parts

I was looking at some pictures of the lathe spindle. There is a helical gear as part of the pulley and it is a pinion to drive the feeds thru a larger helical gear. The main thing, is that these helical teeth appear to have been cut with a circular cutting wheel. The edges taper off and those don't ...

Re: Interrupted Cut Removes Tool Point

It could have been attached to a face plate.

Re: FS 11" Delta/Rockwell Metal Lathe Parts

Oh you're okay, just wondering. My laptops go down all the time-. Ed and I would like to know if you have the L00 taper spindle and maybe an extra 4 jaw chuck but that's between you guys. I don't see a need yet for anything but one of the carriage clamps is broken. I know why that happened. They had...

It would be better if kroll came back to say what area of parts are available.

Re: FS 11" Delta/Rockwell Metal Lathe Parts

Because it is a Delta/Rockwell 25-100, it is earlier. They had three different spindles until they stuck with the L00 taper lock at or before 1980 Rockwell series. The ones we normally see, 25-450 series have the lever speed control.

Re: FS 11" Delta/Rockwell Metal Lathe Parts

Thanks for the opportunity to acquire certain parts. It's like everything is okay until something happens. Then find out later why it happened.

Re: Graziano SAG12

Since I have no experience with a Graziano SAG12, it is like telling the owner of a Ferrari that one tire is low. I just bought a non -contact thermometer gun on eBay because of its description. It supposedly has an adjustable focal range which goes close enough to detect heat of individual electric...

Re: Graziano SAG12

I think it is good too. I was thinking something else though; being quite familiar with the "solderless connecters " of those times, recalling that I had to come around and solder many of them. When soldering for a solid connection, the sleeve melts. I see no evidence of that in this large array. A ...

Re: South Bend 9 Original Way Roughing

I bought a S.B. 11" some years and it was worn bad. It was made in 1933 and saw War service. Then sometimes used as a grinder, so the bed was shot. It had that remarkable oak bench full of tooling, which remains under my current lathe. I bought a S.B. 13" which takes up some room. Again, it was very...

Re: South Bend 9 Original Way Roughing

"Twist" is important when measuring this but I don't see the 9A getting twisted. It would've been mounted tightly wrong a long time or it is under tension. They all have some wear which takes off the original frosting. We need to know the gross wear that makes it inaccurate. The saddle has a slot ab...

Re: OT creative language

Thanks for the encouragement. I went "cold turkey" for some years and along the way got a RX for nicotine gum. For some reason it triggered me to smoke again. Stuff happens but never again with the burning embers and smoke filled rooms etc. No ash trays and all that mess. Tbh I do use the Alto which...
