Re: wanted: threading dial for SBL 9

Lance Eggleston <lance.eggleston@...>
 

OK smart guys,
reverse the motor,  reverse the lead screw
or stand back to the lathe?

In any case I have to wait for the machine to stop.
If motor, then reverse the switch;
 if lead screw then get the wrench, loosen the bolt, 
finagle the lever, tighten the bolt, replace the wrench.

Do this 9 bazillion times to get DOC.

Hmmm,
anybody have a thread dial for a 9a?

Need some help here....... I was running off a batch of T slot nuts and stud sets for ten inch lathes tonight, and thought before I committed the whole batch for BXA size tool holders, I might check with you guys that have Heavy tens. Conventional wisdom (or what passes for it in my shop) tells me that you should run a BXA (or 200) size tool post on a ten inch lathe. The main difference in the T nut is the size of the stud in order to have a tight lock-up on the tool holder. My question is: Before I thread this batch for the larger (BXA) stud, are there operators out there using an AXA (100 size) tool holder on a ten inch lathe, or would I be wasting time and materials fitting some of them for the smaller studs? I've got a batch waiting on an answer before it goes in the phosphate tank.

Yes you can use the stop to zero out too, I dont plunge cut with the cross feed, I cut threads with the compound
most of the time. it's called zero to zero by some. easy to hit the thread depth them check with pee-dee's.
The cross slide is used to mark the total depth of cut then zeroed. the compound is zeroed then backed off to start the
cut, when you reach the original zero on the compound the thread is done. The cross slide zeros out to return, zeros in to start.
Easy to hit your numbers and the feed angle is good for small lathes, chips come out nice with the side cut, other reasons too.

Actually SB had a stop you placed on the cross feed, operator side. When you got  to the end of a thread cut, you backed out to the stop. reversed the lathe to the beginning and you know where you were to begin over again.

You don't really need a thread dial to thread. Its a convenience but not a necessity.
You just never disengage the half nuts.
Some think, for a short length of thread, its actually quicker.

The BXA works on the 10L (I use one on mine), but the adjustment is all the way down on most tools. The AXA would be the better choice.(I also have the BXA on my 13",that's why I have one on my 10L)

The down side of the AXA is the normal slot in the tool holder. It limits the size of indexable inserts. A loris does make some holders with 5/8 slots but they are expensive.
I have modified a few AXA holders to take 5/8 tools.

2 10Ls here and both have Aloris AXAs.  Not sure how much larger a BXA is, but I think it might actually be a little big – never tried one.

I'm no expert, but my gut feeling is that the height of the center line above the top of the compound, rather than the swing of the lathe, sugests the size of the QCTP.

The height of the center line above the top of the compound is the nominally the same for a 9A and a 10L.

I have a BXA-size phase-II tool holder and find it workable but awkwardly large on the 9A and 10L. It just takes up a lot of room - especially when working on small parts.

When I can get organized enough to have all the parts in one box I'll probably try to trade it or sell it and get an AXA size tool post.

Everyone I know with an Aloris or clone on a 10L uses the AXA.

That's the only one I had left Nelson (I think), sold one to GG that had a broken ear for 25.
and this one I found yesterday in a box of 10L stuff I had forgotten about.
I'll keep looking, I'm cleaning up in the shop looking for a taper attachment clamp foot I lost 4 years ago...lol
Anything else you need?

I have one for each SBL and they are great for the rebuild.
You can buy the book w/ the felts for a little less money.

If you want the lathe to be moveable, I recommend 
Foot Master adjustable caster from Cleveland Caster on
