Re: 1964 10K headstock cover question


I found a picture of my 10K of the 1950 or so vintage
Cover flips on the back gear excentrics.
unfortunately I don’t have better pictures.
The machine is now 6 hours drive away stored in a shed at a summer home.
running the lathe without cover is not safe because of exposed bull gear.
from what I could read later versions, cover was made out of fibreglass.
there is a version that shows up once a year or so on ebay with a belt cover reaching the rear drive pulley.

A lot of lathes did not come with covers and the era of that machine it could be older.

Can't tell from the pics, but it probably takes the long plastic one that covers both set of pulleys- if it's a rear drive one.

I'm sure you can find a pic of it.

I've seen them on Ebay in the 75 to 150 range

If you can confirm it  I have a spare you can have if you don't mind waiting till late winter spring.

Hi guys and gals

Winter is approaching and I hope to have the time to reassemble my 10K.
This machine didn't come with the belt/gear guard in place when I acquired it.
The headstock casting is not the same as a 9" and is not the same as the underdrive units I have seen online.

 This lathe was bench mounted when I found it, but had no guard in place at the time.
The machine was disassembled for refinishing as it had been in a fire, but didn't get hot enough to destroy it.
I probably have 200 hours or more invested in it for the teardown, disassembly and refinishing.

I used my glass bead cabinet for a lot of the cleaning, plus have my Logan 922 11 inch for some of the round polishing work.

I'm retired now with over 50 years on the shop floor, so hopefully my work does speak for itself.

Can anyone help me identify it so I can track one down?
My rebuild manual was of no help, so even a picture or so of an existing one would be helpful.
