Re: Right spindle bearing questions -- 1939 9C "side oiler"

Is a bronze sleeve an option for a damaged journal? I have read that there is not enough extra iron on the headstock to introduce any bearings. The discussion might have been limited to roller bearings.

It has a single arm banjo (i have now purchased a two arm banjo). The gears that came with it were dp18 3/8 gears. The compounds are 5/8 bore and the change gears are 9/16. The bed is not a wide one. The serial is 74455. I used the probably imprecise formula to calculate age (a table of known dates to bracket and perhaps interpolate from would seem better). So I have concluded it an early workshop.

John & Jim B,
If your 1935 9” lathe is a Workshop series it could be a Workshop Model 415, or a Workshop Model 405 but a 9” Junior was also made that year. All are top oilers. All are change gear lathes.
