Re: many people gone

We rely upon our Police and dear Sheriffs . That will be said later. Evidence is they are bailing out and the riots will be even more horrible.
It can't be .

Re: many people gone

Even the music is being changed. The lyrics are modified . The brain wash has met a mash or match.

Re: Show us your lathe!

While this is all cool, the topic was supposedly the topic. Seems way back a new fellow was astounded about a 1929 South Bend lathe . I'm sorta familiar about the 1933 . We just blew him away like it never happened .

Re: Sears & Roebuck model 109.20630 metal lathe

Bugatti ! (or Talbot Lego). They had the Style . Harold's Auburn Cords are super awesome style wise. They had a unique American "twist" about them. The transaxle set ahead of the engine and the "CV" joints were engineered.

Re: clausing 5900 power feed advice

Great advise yet I wonder about what is going on. "Lever" tells me that the half nuts are slipping. All Clausings have either a slotted lead screw or mostly a separate slotted rod to drive that feed. The positions are firm and locked.

Re: Lathe table build

Yes. That wooden top is too cool to be covered permanently. I doubt you will have a harmonic but it is similar to rubber straps/ bungees. Some last for decades and newer last a year. I should have bought some of those older baking pans. Fine rolled edges and score marks from thousands of cooking del...

Re: Lathe table build

Plenty tough. The neat wooden top should suppress most harmonics. Shallow baking pans can hold the chips. The rubber straps used for tightening tractor/ truck chains, will cancel ringing ( if it is an issue ).

Re: Lathe table build

I like the whole notion. Make it straight and square to level, then adjust the bolts. You know there are "pads" for this and the same thread as your bolts. They conform to the floor surface. "X" brace at the back. The side braces should be "X" because we don't know if the top is against a wall.. Whe...

Re: Show us your lathe!

I had a Craftsman Atlas 12 x 36 lathe long ago. It had been crashed and I could see the repairs. The rear leadscrew mount was replaced by stronger support. The affected gears had been replaced to "working" . The QCGB had levers of iron and the idler gears appeared steel. I knew there was a heavier v...

Re: WTB shaper similar to Atlas 7b

I'm glad it did. There are times... well. All that bull gear and rocker arm and see they were all steel or semi steel. Many berate Atlas but they got that right.
