A Euro is 1.06 us dollars today. If you pay 425 Euros that is 450.5 us dollars  that's way to much.I do
a lot of machining  i would not buy it even if i would still run a machine shop full time

After checking out the net for information on the AXA Multifix. Decided to buy a AXA Multifix Type A including 4 holders, made in Germeny, no Chinese copy. It came in last saterday and after some modifications it fits the original toolpost. So now both type toolpostholders can be used on the lathe.

Go onto eBay and buy one or more, clean them up and learn.

Bill, where did you find a school that teaches machining? I have been looking for one for a long time. By the way, I don't think you have to justify buying a super precision, beautiful tool that will last you the rest of yours and your children's lives if taken care of. If you can afford it, buy it.

Here is a map of some of he owners of SB lathes. I post this every so often so you can add you location if you like.

It is up to you to add your marker. We do not do it. It is a public site so do not add to much info.

Re: headstock stock run out?

ken campbell
 

remember to allow for the bending away from your cutting tool the work piece ... a general rule is that stock should not be unsupported more than 2 to 3 diameters from the chuck . the result of the vector of the cutting force is that the outboard end is larger ...it bends away from the cutter more.

either support the outboard end, or cut at a remedial angle ... according to the tolerance you need . even threading with many passes can show tapered threads ....

wider tolerances can be our friend .... but still unplanned tapered cuts leave us a little depressed .....we know they are there .

so include in your testing kit some known straight ground shafts to sweep when " chucked " .

You have better equipment than I own. My tenths mike is a Harbor Freight. I've tested it against the good set of gage blocks at school and it's accurate to its specified limits, but who knows how long it will last. OTH when I got it, it was better than I am. :) I'm doing better and hope one day soon to be able to justify upgrading. When I got it, a year and a half or so ago, I was afraid I'd ruin a better quality tool. I have since learned better technique, and developed a better feel for the "right" amount of pressure to get a good measurement. Maybe I won't be so ham-handed when I finally get good measuring tools.

I am using a Starrett
micrometer with .0001 graduations. I repeated the
measurements enough times to be confident of the values.
Also, after testing a 3 inch piece, the difference was
pretty much 3 times the results of the 1 inch piece. I
certainly am no expert, but this is pretty clear.

Normally I wouldn't worry
about a .0005 tolerance. However, the plans for the  small
IC engine I am building call for the piston to be no more
than .0012 smaller than the cylinder. With an inch and a
half long cylinder, a .0007 difference in diameters to start
with seems to be too much.


Please feel free to correct
me if I am missing some thing here. I am teaching myself and
can use all the help I can get. Thanks, John.

Don,

Method 2. I have not tried this but I have heard good things about it. See attached:

At 09:39 AM 3/6/2017, you wrote:



If the table top is not nice and flat, what is the procedure for leveling, or mounting the lathe so that bed twist is not an issue?

Thanks for the suggestion!

Hi guys
Attached is a photo of the bench I built for my 9A. It is very rigid and has lots of weight too. Legs are 2" square tubing 3/16 wall, plates are 1/4" and 3/16" for the webs. The shelf is 6 or 8" channel iron so all in all very rigid. The tool box loaded probably weighs another 150 or more pounds. Top frame around the tool box is heavy 2 1/2" angle iron. I get no flex and was able level and maintain that once set up. There is only one leg on the right end and four on the left side. I have the four legs leveled and then brought the single leg up to match the height. Works great.
Nick

Thanks Eddie.

Flat, rigid and vibration damping. More things to consider when I get around to building the bench.

Thanks again,
Don
