If more tool post grinders are required, I have a Themac J-35 New in
the case with all associated accessories. Sized for 9 to 13 inch
lathes. It hits ebay this afternoon at 5 pacific, but I'll cancel the
listing for a member of this list. Bottom line: $870 delivered to your
door. Money order preferred. Add 3% for paypal.

A Big Thank You! Re: Metal Suppliers

ChristopherS
 

I want to thank all of you that responded to my query regarding metal supply sources. I found all the suggestions useful except for one that I'm not quite sure about. Something about "I pay 20 to 30 cents a pound". I don't know what I'm supposed to do with that information but I am happy for him.
 
Bob Creely's suggestion for contacting pneumatic cylinder repair shops was definitely one that I had not thought of. Hey Bob, are those pistons hardened?
 
After winning an eBay bid for a couple of 5 inch lengths of 3.25 inch diameter cold roll steel I
have to confess that J. A. Woolworth's pointer to www.onlinemetals.com, with its reasonable cutting charges, is my favorite. The temperatures here in south Florida are still in the ninety's with humidity so thick you could spread it on bread. The mere thought of hacksawing through this material makes me sweat! I'm assuming that attempting to part 3.25" dia. CRS on my heavy 10 would be futile, or would it???
 
By the way, one of the responders, sorry, I forgot who, asked me what type of work I was planning to do. At the moment I plan to turn an assortment of spindle nose adapters for two wood lathes I have. One lathe is a Jet Midi with a 1"x8TPI spindle and a converted Logan 920 with a 2-1/4"x8TPI spindle. Is cold roll steel appropriate or would or would 1018 be satisfactory, or neither?
 
Thanks again every one.
Chris

Hi Bert,

I checked this morning and I do have a left side gear cover.  It is 
from a "C" model and does not have the bracket to mount a 
forward/reverse switch.  I'll take $25 for it plus whatever it costs 
to ship.  It should be about $5 unless your friend needs it quickly.

Subject: synthetic oils ?

Hi all,

I have been thinking about synthetic oils and the possible application
for use on our lathes.

When I was much younger, I used to buy small cans of synthic as an
additive.  IIRC, it was just the oil, no detergentrs or any of that
other stuff.

Does anyone have any idea if this is worth while ?

suggestions ? comments ?

Dave

Subject: Re: synthetic oils ?

It is my understanding that Synthetic oils have several advantages.
1) More "slipperiness"(i.e. better friction reduction)
2) A more constant viscosity vs. temperature curve.
3) A lower tendency to oxidize wit temperature
4) Improved adhesion (Less tendency to run off vertical surfaces.)

1) and 4) could make them useful for HMS aficionados.

However the only one I am personally familiar with is STP and out of the can
this is like molasses. It would need to be thinned with something? What?
Perhaps spindle oil and used on the ways.

There has been some previous discussion on this one - searching the files 
should come up with it. I've been using Mobil 1 fully synthetic engine oil 
as headstock spindle oil on my lathe for years and am pleased with the 
results. Some would argue you should never use engine oil for this 
application and I would agree with them if we were talking mineral oil. All 
I can say is my headstock bearings run a little cooler and based on many 
years as an engineer (and still at it) this is a good sign.

It is my understanding that synthetics somehow bold to the surface
much better than common motor oils.  and that this bond may actually
be semi-permanet.   Supposedly, cold engine starts is were the wear

oil pump.

but... synthitic oils can run a motor when the oil drains out.  that
bond is still there to some extent.

I figure a simple mix would deliver the synthetic to the surfaces and
the mix would offer the viscosity and volume needed.

I would be real curious if it would extend the life of the ways in any
signifigant manner ?

Re: synthetic oils ?

Clive Foster
 

Many parts of most SouthBend lathes are supplied via a wick feed system.

A potential worry with synthetic oils is how well they are transported by the wick. As I understand matters wick feed transport is basically a surface tension effect and the amount of oil shifted is determined by the interaction of the wick properties and the surface tension properties of the oil.

I believe that synthetic oils have been primarily developed for pump fed and fixed surface lubrication. Clearly for fixed surface duties its helpful for the oil to stick to the surface, if its a pump fed system there is plenty of oil being pushed around so sticking to the surface doesn't really matter although its helpful in emergency situations. The only possible time when sticking to the surface could be a problem is if pressures and temperatures get to the level where the synthetic oil breaks down into something which does not lubricate well. Not an area we will ever get into.

However well the synthetic oil sticks to the surfaces being lubricated it will eventually wear off so, obviously, enough has to get through the wick to replace losses. With clean wicks & mineral oil too much gets through but a bit of oil drip has always been accepted as an acceptable price to pay for known good lubrication. Hence the $64,000 question is "does enough synthetic get through to ensure that you have enough lubrication?". Could take a fair while to find out that not enough is getting through as most wick fed bits don't need much oil anyway.

I hardly think that the synthetic oil makers pay much attention to something as old fashioned as wick feed.
It might be interesting to do some experiments. One idea is to have about 3" of horizontal wick feeding a plain bearing with an inch or so of oil in a transparent pipe feeding the wick. Fit an electric motor to spin the bearing shaft and see how long it takes to empty the feed pipe. Do it with two bearings, one at each end of the shaft, with your chosen mineral oil for comparison. 3/4" shaft sounds about right as its similar to the SC gearbox shaft sizes which have pretty much that sort of feed anyway. Might get an answer in a month or so!

Hi all,

I have been thinking about synthetic oils and the possible application
for use on our lathes.

When I was much younger, I used to buy small cans of synthic as an
additive. IIRC, it was just the oil, no detergentrs or any of that
other stuff.

Does anyone have any idea if this is worth while ?

suggestions ? comments ?

Re: wanted a gear guard

Hi Bert,

I checked this morning and I do have a left side gear cover. It is
from a "C" model and does not have the bracket to mount a
forward/reverse switch. I'll take $25 for it plus whatever it costs
to ship. It should be about $5 unless your friend needs it quickly.

Need 9in Model A cone cover

dphobbies
 

I have a 9 inch model A SN 18494NKR7 that
is missing its cone cover. I guess I am out
of business until I find one. I believe it
is part number PT2576NK2, but will defer to the experts.

All help appreciated.

One thing you might try is look on Ebay for a
forward-reverse lever, I have seen many with that gear
on it... figured that out after I paid a high price
for a new one.
