    Leblond lathe feed rod issue.

    Remove the large cover at the LH end of the headstock. There is a "porkchop" shaped casting that is radially adjustable to set the clearance between the input gears to the quick change gearbox. Check that these gears are in mesh as the "porkchop" (known as the quadrant) may have slipped out of...

    Leblond Makino Regal help

    Remove the LH headstock cover and check the wires that power the brake. The spindle oscillation during shifting can cause the wires to flex and fail over time. Mike

    1983? Leblond 14" T&D- Completely new to lathes and have no idea where to start.

    Three motors is correct: spindle drive motor, hydraulic pump motor for the servo shift & spindle rocking motion and the coolant pump motor in the tail end leg. From the photos, I'd guess this Tool & Diemaker lathe is a 5HC*** serial number. LeBlond Lathe Parts can confirm this.

    Can anyone out there ID this LeBlond lathe?

    It is a LeBlond sliding bed gap lathe. As I recall, the tail end leg is a Navy thing for shipboard mounting. The headstock appears to have the "variable speed handwheel" thing right under the quick change gearbox. A recent post was questioning this handwheel and its function.

    This is a sleeve for an Erickson Tool Company expanding mandrel, a business which Kennametal acquired circa 1980. IIRC, Bristol Erickson, and perhaps Bristol Tool & Gage were somehow involved in those product lines, but that was 40 years ago. Birla Erickson was an India based subsidiary...

    Leblond duel drive mk1 replacement gears

    Many years ago, a friend who worked at LeBlond Ltd. suggested that shaved or hobbed gears would be less costly than their typical hardened & ground gears. You might suggest that approach to LeBlond Ltd. A pair of hobbed gears might be a bit noisier than a ground set, but would function well.

    How can I make an out of state sell into a cash on barrel head exchange?

    I did a similar $2500 deal with a seller who agreed to ship via Fastenal. I called the store manager at the Fastenal drop off location and he agreed to act as an agent for both buyer and seller. My check was sent Next Day Air and the Fastenal manager held it until the seller dropped off the...
