    Excello 602 mill sn # 6028763 1979

    Here's a 602 that was recently being parted out: https://www.practicalmachinist.com/forum/threads/parting-out-excello-602-mill.417972/ Does yours have an R8 spindle? If so, for the part that drives the tool holder maybe you're referring to what I think is a set screw that engages the slot in...

    New to me South Bend

    What I'm describing here will be a reversing switch but not the power switch for the single phase motor. You'll need a separate power switch for line 1 & line 2. For 220/240 V both Line 1 and Line 2 are hot. You should switch both lines off when turning off the motor. A 3-phase reversing...

    Santec bed mill

    I suggest removing the address and phone number. Provide it in private message (conversation) when needed. Now it is available for every miscreant worldwide to harvest and use for any purpose. Also might want to add the price.

    I see it also has a half HP carriage feed motor and a lower power coolant pump motor. Does the installation manual or operators manual provide any guidance on powering the lathe?

    Excello 602 belt replacement

    Looks nice; thanks for the video. Does your 602 use a magnetic starter? Or drum switch? I have an earlier 602 that's not as pretty but works ok. Had to do minor repairs on motor & on spindle brake. The quill oil cup quickly drains out and onto the table so I guess I need to pull the quill &...
