Re: new condition 10K on eBay 220577884997



As my daughter keeps telling me, we are getting old. I have been to your home work shop once years ago.

I'm planning to come to the grinding session meet on April 17th. Hope to see you there.

You or anyone from the Phoenix metropolitan area check us out. We meet once
a month at members home shops or local small machine shops.

The Turk:

Thanks for taking the time to give details of the bed scraping chronology at
South Bend. I remembered your earlier comments about the rigidity problems
with the 10K when I saw this lathe but the logic behind and the problems
with scraping make sense.

It is interesting how our views are shaped because of our different tracks.

Unlike your life experience, my young machining life is shaped by eBay.

I have no affinity group that is in a trade, I have no access or opportunity
to visit a real machine shop so my addiction started with eBay. Naturally,
before your comments, I would use original paint and scraping patterns to
judge pictures of lathes I see up for auction.

Out of dumb luck, my 10L has the ground flame hardened ways.

If I understand you correctly, the scraping of the saddle is for oil
retention. Is it also used for increasing the accuracy?
