Re: Atlas th48

First picture is a lever style collet closer,don't see any collets however. With the Atlas ' small bore headstock collets size range is very limited,great if you do TINY work not so much otherwise. Last picture is a tool post grinder ,can't make out the brand.

Re: Jet 1236PS switch issues

If it works OK a grand sounds reasonable ,a lot depends on your location. some areas a smoking deal others a fair price. Looks like a typical Chinese/Taiwan belt head/threaded chuck mount lathe. Been around a few of them and usually decent machines.

Re: Mill tooling

You really only need to add a 1/4-1/2-5/8- and if you will be doing work with small endmills a 1/8 for collets . collets by 1/16 are really not needed very often as most 1/16 size mills are available with the 1/8 shanks. Drill chuck shanks and boring heads are available in 1/2-5/8-3/4 sizes ,quicker...

Re: MSC "Bridgeport Clone" no Model# (Purchasing advice sought, with pics)

I really don't see much in the way of missing parts and the knee is square ways which is considered to be a good thing. A lot depends on your location, here in Phoenix that would be considered a good deal with the vise and super spacer. If the vise is not some cheapie ,Kurt would be nice.

Re: Mystery drill bits

And as I recall there are 3 different counter sink angles used 82* -90* -100* . 82* is for Allen head inch screws, 90* for same in metric and 100* for what we call stove bolts.And the to big for tap size is for shank clearance.

Re: Can't Get Hole Drilled Through Sandblast Cabinet

And even with a punch you still need to make a hole for the bolt that pulls the 2 pieces together !! I would use a 6MM/1/4 bit at 1000-1500 RPM and use a LOT of force on the drill motor. I can not believe that cabinet material can be that hard/tough. Drills need the proper speed [SFM] to cut properl...

Re: Parting tool holder

Blade has to be thinner than the insert for clearance. So GTN 3 should be 3MM wide right?

Re: Jet 1236P

Depending on how old it is anything made 2000 up should be a gearhead with D1-4 spindle . Tooling no issue as to tool post -centers etc. They came with follow rest-steady rest,3&4 jaw chucks and faceplate. Normally dual voltage single phase -can be wired 110-220. If by some chance it is a belt drive...

Absolutely, most important thing is how much bed wear does it have.

That lathe has a hardened bed so unless really abused should not be a issue.
OP should jump on it if in good shape,as 12X36 imports are around $4500 + now.
