Re: Another dumb question...

My horizontal mill has arbors and all have full length keyways. Most of the bushings have keyways, too. I can't imagine driving a wheel cutter without a key. You could use your vertical mill setup to cut a short keyway where you will mount your cutter, to avoid trying to cut one full length. Make ab...

Re: Boyer- Shultz Surface Grinder

BadDog: it turns out that my friend had downloaded the manual you suggested, but his issue is with the sheet metal cabinet. There seems to be a leak somewhere at one of the mounting points. He is reluctant to remove the machine from the cabinet, but I asked him "How hard can that be?" He has repaire...

Re: Mill tooling

Additional to Harold's and Steve's comments about a short drill chuck shank, I have edge finders in both 3/8" and 1/2" so I can change from a 1/2" em to a drill chuck to an edge finder without too many Anglo-Saxon mutterings. In my instance I use tool holders because they are shorter and smaller in ...

Re: Boyer- Shultz Surface Grinder

Thanks fellows. I guess my friend didn't check carefully enough, or else he thought it wasn't the right model. I'll pass this along to him.

Boyer- Shultz Surface Grinder

My friend purchased a Boyer-Shultz Surface grinder without any documentation, nor can he find any, even on VintageMachinery.org Does anyone have any operators manual, parts list, etc for a B-S model 612 Deluxe? Or failing that, know where to find any.
TIA

"Might this be for a tool and cutter grinder? Although all the ones I have seen did not use an adapter."

Yike I must have forgotten my meds. I meant Tool Post Grinder as Mr. Evans suggested. I can't even blame autocorrect.....

Re: Surface grinder hub ID

Every surface grinder wheel adapter I ever saw was for 1-1/4 or larger id wheels.
Might this be for a tool and cutter grinder? Although all the ones I have seen did not use an adapter.
I'd be interested in what you eventually find out.

Re: Squaring up raw stock

When i was a kid we lived in a small town with dirt roads and the township garage was just down the road in the 'center' of town. They replaced the wheel bearings in the road grader and I think they were 1" diameter or thereabouts. Best of all the one I got was free. I'd bet one could use your ball ...

Re: Squaring up raw stock

Open your textbook, "Machine Tool Operation, Part II" by Henry D Burkhardt, McGraw Hill Book Co, Inc Copyright 1922, 1937 and turn to the Chapter on Shaper Work, Section 107, where it explains this in only 3 pages. But the essence is in these 4 steps as shown in the picture. block squaring.jpg If yo...

Re: Old inspection indicator

FWIW. Just in case the label is missing off the end of the box, that is a Starrett Universal Dial Test Indicator Model 196. I have one but haven't used it in years, for no good reason than I have others more modern.
