Thanks David,

I made a similar tool out of a 3/8 screw driver that worked out perfectly.

Here is a pic of the tool I made to remove the handles on my 13”. I used a 5/8” spade bit. The drive end is 1/4 hex that fits a 1/4” nut driver. Worked well. Good luck.

McMaster.com sells thrust bearings. Anything there that would work?

Now these very seldom get bad. and I would not expect them to chirp unless they are totally without oil. 
Try loosening up the aforementioned spindle take up washer and see if the chirp goes away. 

At one time Grizzly had them but I think they sold out. They may have replacements but expect the cost to be high.  As I remember, somebody did find a substitute, but that was years ago. Try searching the archives.

Hello everyone, I have a 9"model A lathe which has a steak or chirp that is rythmic in nature. I believe that the thrust bearing is going bad and I need to replace it. Does anyone know what the call-out for this bearing is? I didn't want to take the spindle out just to find out. I had a problem in the past with this bearing and I should have taken care of the problem then. I just didn't have time.

Thank you all,

Re: Replace the square head compound screws

At some point somebody made a front mark on my 9a using a cold chisel. They got it a couple of degrees off. Even if it was right on it is still confusing because you still have to subtract 180, or from 180 or whatever.

I end up standing on my head.

And off topic but WHY OH WHY did South Bend not put a mark on the operators side to set compound angle? My tired old eyes have a tough time using a mirror on the backside of the compound to set angles.

I’m with you there. I have a South Bend clone made in Australia and it also hides the witness mark around the back. Always seemed odd to me.
