Mystery Lathe Milling Attachment

Matthew Lewis
 

In a box of parts I bought to equip my 9" I found two milling vises.  One is an SB for the 9" , the other is a mystery.  It does not look like any SB attachment I have seen in any photo (and certainly not like an Atlas or Palmgren) .  It s 12" tall, has a 1 3/8 spigot for mounting on the cross slide and only marks are K410, K411 and K412 on the three major castings.  Size looks right for a 10" or slightly larger lathe.  Any ideas?

I have 5Rs on one of my lathes. I can't even find a reference to them anywhere let along a 5R collet. I am stuck with what I have which fortunately is a reasonable set.

  Here's some info that might help. Hope you're luckier than I, because my 15" uses 4C collets and they are rare. Luckily, I have a full set that came with my lathe.

Starting to get a bad feeling!  I took one to the Model Engineer Exhibition at Alexandra Palace last winter, and one of the traders there said he thought it looked a bit 4-ish.

I'll have acces to the lathe tomorrow and do some measuring.

Incidentally, since my initial post on this topic, I have found the data that Ted attached in the files section, but thanks all the same.

As Paolo noted its best to measure the through hole.
Some SB’s did have a small bore and did not take 5C’
Also if your spindle thread is the 2-1/4X8 its most likely a
5C

Dear all,

Thinking of investing in a few more collets for our 1943 14and1/2" x 6' S/B toolroom lathe, and not sure what size / type fits.  I suspect it is 5C, since the FAQ states that the 13" & 16" take these (as well as heavy 10).  Can anyone advise / confirm, please?  I can post some critical dimensions if these are listed for me to measure.

Sensibly (i.e. low!) priced sources in the UK, anyone?  More interested in imperial (W/W, not A/F) and metric hexaons than circles at present.

Thanks,

Eddie

Eddie,
Could you measure the through-hole of the spindle? If it's in the range of 1.375-1.4in it will take 5C collets. If smaller, you're probably better off making an adapter for ER collets.

It is good to hear story's like that. We have a neighbor that is in her 60's and lives in one of those wood frame homes. She is a worry ward and I feel bad for her and anyone that suffers from it. She sit down and read her Bible and had a little talk with God, well to cut a long story short she fell asleep and did not wake up until the storm had passed. She had a lot of tree damage one big cedar that the one side was twisted off but the house was not harmed. It remind me of the story of Peter walking on the water and Jesus telling them you with so little faith. We can let our minds think up all kind of things that will rob us of comfort in times of disaster but there is one that comforts.

Yes the only contact with the outside world was FM radio and what friend that called. No home phone and no electric, it is hard to believe how dependent on it we have become. Out of the whole I guess what disturbs me most is the news and weather coverage. They were putting reports out there that was down right lies, what has become with those so called professionals? The storm is gone and I hope all the best.

I live in the north central part. The storm came right through here and it was the worst I have seen in my 60 years. I do not want to repeat it. Although I have a generator and that will give a little bit of comfort just knowing what in the refrigerator and freezers will not go to waste. It was a wild ride and God was merciful to us because it could been much worse, 
Thank you for the concern.

Greetings all from sunny Florida,

We hope every that went through the storm is well tonight. I have been out of power since 5:30 am Monday when the storm went through. Everything was deathly quiet and all H*LL broke loose. There are more trees down than ever, I lost a big tree and all the branches flown out of the trees cover the ground. Our home did not take any damage and I am so blessed at that point. There has been no sign of the power company to even access the damage and by what we are getting on the radio station we were listening to says it might be 2 weeks before power will be restored. Home Depot got in a load of Generac  generators and one is sitting my back yard humming away. The computer, TV, lights and fans are working real nice as long as I keep gas in it. The biggest reason for the generator is my freezer and refrigerator has a lot of food I hate to loose. But it is nice to have light and a fan moving the air around. Maybe I'll get a good night sleep tonight.

Hope all a good night.

 

Nelson

Happy to hear you have a generator, living in the dark is no fun.
Sending you very best wishes from a hot Pretoria SA  ( 32 deg ) and just the start of summer.

We got our power last after dark and how sweet it was to have the AC going. I bought a generator and yesterday I was going to finish the day with a hot shower come H*LL or high water. After hooking up the generator I pulled the compressor out to charge the bladder in the well tank, and like everything I touched it could not go smooth. I tried to disconnect the hose and one of the PVC pieces broke. Took all that apart and replaced the PVC with 3/4 iron pipe.  I cut a section off a pipe I had laying around. When I put it in place it moved the alignment over about 1 1/2 inches. It is hard to cut a thread on a piece about 1 3/4 inches long. Ran to hardware bought two different sizes so I would not make two trips. Got it all back in place and fired the pump up and about 35 minutes I was being messaged by all that hot water, how sweet it was. Got out of shower and seen all the yellow flashing lights out side and YES the power was getting the power on. Now I could sit in air conditioning, Happy Camper. All the fellas that worked on it need a great big thanks from all the was out. I told them all how much I appreciated them. Thank God for good people.
I wish that was the last for the year but I do not believe so.

.Nelson,

Good to hear you made it OK. Sounds like you really dodged a bullet. My wife's sister lives in Bonito Springs and also had little damage.

We live in NW Ohio and a few clouds from the storm passed over yesterday. That was a huge storm. You probably missed all the TV coverage, I cover most of the SE part of the country.

Greetings all from sunny Florida,

We hope every that went through the storm is well tonight. I have been out of power since 5:30 am Monday when the storm went through. Everything was deathly quiet and all H*LL broke loose. There are more trees down than ever, I lost a big tree and all the branches flown out of the trees cover the ground. Our home did not take any damage and I am so blessed at that point. There has been no sign of the power company to even access the damage and by what we are getting on the radio station we were listening to says it might be 2 weeks before power will be restored. Home Depot got in a load of Generac  generators and one is sitting my back yard humming away. The computer, TV, lights and fans are working real nice as long as I keep gas in it. The biggest reason for the generator is my freezer and refrigerator has a lot of food I hate to loose. But it is nice to have light and a fan moving the air around. Maybe I'll get a good night sleep tonight.

Hope all a good night.

 

Nelson
