Re: taper attachment intallation

David Pidgeon <dave@...>
 

--Just reading your post about the taper attachment. I just yesterday
put one on my SB 9 Model A. I have waited years to get one. I have no
instruction with it and would greatly like to get one that is written
about in this post. I would very happy to pay you for a copy so I can
put it with my lathe. I don't care if you want to email it or I can
send you my mail address. Many thanks.

Another thing that you might try to adjust the misalignment if you still
want to see if sleeve is close, is to adjust the small screw with the jam
nut on it that is screwed into the bottom of the clamp for that bracket.
This will allow for some movement up and down but not in and out. In and out
is preset by the "V" that is machined in the clamp.

Someone has made this sleeve and installed it in the Collet Rack Clamp (
which is what you have but is the same as the taper attachment clamp without
the pipe tapped hole in it as someone else already alluded to ) . When you
see the size of the hole in the Collet Rack Clamp as compared to the size of
the Draw Bar itself you think it needs a bushing which was not the way South
Bend supplied it but made perfect sense to machine one and install as the
lathe owner.

Ed,

Not sure if you have the right clamp, but I agree that
it shouldn't have a steel sleeve, that the taper
attachment shaft is aligned in the right clamp with
babbit. I mounted a TA on a 9" and did the babbit
thing. Perhaps that sleeve is mounted in the clamp
with babbit and you can melt it to remove the clamp.
If not, there are other ways to get it out or machine
it out to make room. If it is a babbit mount, there
should be a pour hole on the top/center surface above
the shaft hole but it not be visible without striping
the paint.

2) This bed clamp has a steel sleeve in it that is the

Can anyone tell me how this is supposed to work.

Re: Drill bit Recommendation Wanted

I second that, anything USA made. I use cobalt drills for general use
but it all depends on what you are drilling. TiN (gold color)
lubricates and hardens the tool, TiCN (grey color) is harder and lubes
better but I have only found it on carbide drills and mills. For my
portable drill I like the flatted shank drills (3 flats). JP

Ed,
Yep, that's a rack clamp. May have been sleeved to adapt to a taper att,
but not on that lathe.
What does go in the hole is the C ring holder for the collet handwheel closer.

I'm not going to venture a guess on that one, but you might want to contact Plaza Machinery, (they're online - somewhere). I just bought a new crossfeed screw and nut for a heavy 10 with a taper attachment. Very good quality, about $200 for the two.

Re: taper attachment intallation

RichD <cmsteam@...>
 

Ed,
the rack clamp and taper att clamp castings are identical, except that
the taper att casting is filled with lead or babbit to fit the stub on
the taper att end. The hole where the rack would bolt should go instead
is the place that holds the crosslide nut screw hole cap pin.
If your casting has two empty 1/4" holes on top and a setscew in the rear,
that is a rack clamp.
