Re: Looking to buy a handwheel for apron for Heavy 10
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I may be walking into it here, but I have to ask: If a vertical miller is available, couldn’t the hand wheel shaft be loosely fitted into a vise with a vee block, a drill suitable to the shaft hole, held in the headstock, and the shaft and drill manipulated until there is a “free feel" to the drill? Perhaps a tapered reamer could be “jiggled” to assure alignments afterward. This might be as sensitive as trying to fit a level in Jim’s procedure. I would proceed as Jim has suggested, using super glue, spotting center, and drilling very cautiously. Not as easily, I suspect the same thing could be done with an horizontal miller. (Lucky me: I have both.)
I am probably missing some important point, so have at it. I am not sensitive to being corrected.

Yes you can find similar hand wheels at Both McMasters and MSC.
They will work but need to be fitted to the Heavy 10 shaft.
Now a word of caution. SB did not take grate pains when installing taper pins. They are not necessarily on center or perpendicular to the shaft and no two are the same.
I have been able to match new wheels to old shafts by holding the old shaft in a collet or chuck. Setting my shop made cross drilling attachment to match the angle and offset and then drilling through the new collar.
If you want I can post a how-to
