When I bought my 9" C, they sent me an underneath drive unit instead
of the horizontal one I needed. I finally got the HD unit from the
seller (a company in Bristol CN) after several months of frustration.
I still have the under drive motor mount plate, cone pulley, two step
motor pulley, shaft (very worn but could be turned down and sleeved)
and lock rings. If someone can use any or all, they are available.
Make me an offer.

with our lathes, we could part out them for more money than what thea

believe to have been near complete machines. In one sense, it ashame that
they got parted out. To the seller, it probably would have costthem
to get the other parts, than the complete lathe would have soldfor.
least seriously cut into his profit. If we look at extremely highdollar
autos i.e. rare Ferraris, Jags, Ford GT-40's etc. They are rebuiltif they
only have tittle to their vin number. Basically a replica that'slegit. I'm
afraid our lathes, however dear to us, aren't in that category.hoard them?
Do we keep them in the hope that one day we might need that leadscrew etc.
for some machine we don't have? Right now I have the base plate to ahorizontal
drive unit.) Also, a feed screw to a milling attachment and maybethe clamp
screws to it (but nothing else). I would sell or trade these out ifI had
what I needed. People keep out bidding me in the last few minute onE-bay.
I hate it when I loose something by $1. (I did get a bunch of 6Kmetric
collets for cheap though.) At this point there is the large castingfor a
horizontal drive unit on e-bay. So I might need the base. I wouldstill
need the large pulley and shaft though. The shaft could be made. Dowe
create/compound this problem by hoarding these parts?cannibalizing
cars and appliances since I was ten years old...much to thechagrin
parents! :-) When I was fourteen years old, and my fathermanaged
sideswiped by a bus, his car was sporting multicoloured bodypanels
it died many years later (junkyard donor cars). I havecannibalized so
many microwaves and washing machines for their motors andcontroller
boards that I've lost count (rich relatives discarding them as"trash." ).
I will hopefully be using some of these motors and controllerboards in
the upcoming ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers)Student (I am
secretary of the student chapter at my university) competition,where we
have to build a baseball-pitching machine capable of a high degreeof
repeatibility at pitching balls into a target.(or
them too precious to use?Service.
