Re: Proud dad moment

Oh heck. I have to say something. I drive a Legacy wagon and it continues to astound me, even though it is 20 years old. It has many active features but it will all fall to dust. Legacy is a word of meaning. I am proud for you, your sons and the Legacy you built.

Re: Rockwell Vertical Mill 21-100

Yes. My Rockwell catalog of the 1980's has the same 21-100 mill but it doesn't mention Delta. There is some sub script notes: Rockwell Manufacturing Company 1972 and Rockwell International Corporation, 1979 .

Re: I bought a Lathe

The older tailstock is already expensive and the later one more elusive. The central area does not have the wear but ideally, the tailstock does still bear across the flat ways. It would be inconvenient, at the least, to have a carriage locked down so tight to become a tail support. Too much flex an...

Re: Teeter Totter finger for dial indicator

Sounds good and also the info from Bill S. gets us closer to exact reading instead of relative. "Axis of moment" /" Axis of movement" .

Re: removing an awkward flywheel

There has been many useful tips and procedures since my post. It is over, thus far. He managed to dig out the "off drilled" threads and secure it by another bolt. The flywheel never did move after all the attempts. He cleaned and set new points and ran some new wire and the engine gets spark. It is ...

Re: I bought a Lathe

Since you already bought it, I was trying to look at the positive aspects. It does have the newer head (yet modified) the bed is equally lapped ( worn) to the end. I suppose some parts will sell. One pic shows the lead screw support casting is missing. The bench looks usable.

Re: Teeter Totter finger for dial indicator

I would think these attachments fit to specific DI. I'm not sure a Starrett would fit perfectly on an NSK. If the clamping is at all wrong, it wouldn't represent the actual travel.

Re: Can you help identify these items?

Almost certain the last table is Burke #4 ( 3 3/4" wide). The left dial would be 2" but yours may be earlier. The handles appear to be original. The right side had the power feed but you don't need that. Correct in that it has been sawed off across the elevation /Z screw. It is still a heavy X Y sli...
