Re: feed handles hitting ea. other.

Steve Wells
 

Rudd,
Set you compound on angle at lets say 30 degrees right and always try and feed towards the head stock if the cut allows,
square you tool or tool post to the work or chuck. If your cutting to a shoulder try to add a little cutter side relief so you
can face out as you bring the tool home with you cross slide.

see
http://www.grizzly.com/products/G0619
these are a little bigger than some of the earlier ones. still small.

tilting head--- see the other mills grizzly is selling.

There should be a lot of used Rung Fus arround in So Calif.

Electricals are a bit questionable so far to say the least.

feed handles hitting ea. other.

I've got a '42 vintage 13" machine. If the compound is set at 0
degrees, the compound and cross feed screw handles will interefere w/
ea other. I have the small dials FWIW - has anyone else run into this?
Quite annoying.

I recently picked up a sheldon vernon #0 horiz. mill for 200 bux. I
have a drill press, therefore, mill-drill is covered.
And I *LIKE* thinking sideways. And it's small. And rigid.
I have heard few good reviews on the import mill-drills. And my south
bend has some nice company in the shop at night that speaks the same
language.
I saw a bunch of nice small horizontals at dealers for 500 bux asking
price. You can put in a collet, stick in an endmilluse an angle plate
and do most anything a non-quilled vert. will do, plus, the chip fall
OUT of the hole rather than sitting down there dulling your cutter.
I've run bridgies, this is alot more bang for the buck.

Hi Steve

This guy was a real jerk about putting in his description just what
he was selling. He either did not believe me or just did not care.
He was afraid that if he said to much there would be no bidders. He
felt that all 9 inch lathes were the same as he just wonted to make
money off the parts. I wonder what all he has gotten back. I did
get the taper setup off this lathe and its in really great shape
after I got all the grunge off it. The other pars I got were not in
as good of condition.

Yes that gear is for a 20 series lathe or the Tool Makers 9 inch. I
never did see the bed to this lathe. I do have the head stock on the
way to me though. Yes the 8Jr. and the tool makers lathe used the
same change gears as I have both the lathes here at home. The 405
used different gears as theres were 20 pitch. The 8 Jr. and the tool
makers lathe used 18 pitch and are 3/8 wide but have a 5/8 bore not
the 9/16 as used on the 415 and all later workshop lathes. These
gears are unique to the 8 Jr. and the 20 series tool makers lathe.

Back Gear Pops out of Mesh - 9" Lathe

ameade01 <ameade01@...>
 

Hello all: I'm a new member of this list. I've had a 9" South Bend
for about a year. I think it's a "Model A" - it's the one with the
change gears built it. It dates to 1945. Everything works fine and
seems to be tight, except that recently I've noticed that when I'm
using the back gear - I hope I'm calling it by the right name, it's
the lever-actuated pair of gears that are engaged for low speed - the
back gear unit will disengage under load when the lathe is running in
the forward direction. It seems to happen more when the lathe is
cold. Gear teeth look OK. I can keep it from disengaging by just
applying a very light hand pressure on the lever. Any advice ?

Thanks !

Alex
