    WTB: D1-4 Lathe Chucks: 6.25" 3 Jaw, 8" 4 Jaw

    Hi, I bought a lathe that turns 3,000 RPM and has a D1-4 spindle. Being a hobbyist I can't justify expensive new chucks but the lathe is fairly nice so I don't want to put offshore on it. Does anyone have a chuck that would work for my purpose? Shipping would be to Houlton Maine, 04730. Thanks,

    Please explain what these Aloris tools are for.

    Sorry about that, I didn't scroll down enough through the pictures to see it. I understand the 25. Would the 18 just be very similar? make 5 steps in a part in one pass?

    You are right that 3mm is too large. I've got fasteners and taps coming for M2.5, this is what it looks like drawn to scale. 2mm was just too tiny.

    help needed with shop sale

    Rich, I have a 160 and I'm very interested in how you've setup your lathe electrically. It looks like the variator panel is blanked over and you are running a fairly large VFD. Would you be so kind as to describing in detail how you've converted that machine. (PS: If i had 60k I'd offer you that...

    How are people obtaining change gears for these lathes? I was able to buy a 72T off ebay but there aren't many out there for sale.

    Yes its had a hard life but I saw that the day I bought it. I've seen This Old Tony run the drill on the compound as well. One thing to note here, I'm just a hobbyist so if I can make this thing run better than a mini lathe from harbour freight then it'll be considered successful. I've got an...

    Project Schaublin 160 - Rebuild of S/N 193947

    Here are a few more images including some M3x12 fasteners. There is nothing wrong with the counterbore or the bottom side, it is just the shank of the bolt loaded this part and chipped it out for some reason. I don't follow the eccentric washer idea but maybe it is not longer needed given these...

    Hi, the lead screw nut is shown upside down in that image. a SHCS comes up through the cracked hole from below and threads into the nut. The slot (with little oil gallery hole in it) is for a dowel pin for main load transfer. It is like someone unscrewed the second bolt and tried to lift the top...

    Project Schaublin 160 - Rebuild of S/N 193947

    Found my first thing that I'd like some help with. The casting is cracked on one bolt but not the pin that actually transmits the torque. Makes me think that someone tried taking it apart the wrong way and pulled on it. I'm thinking the drive pin would be the thing that takes the force and it is...

    Yes and I also received a set of drawings for the machine. I'm very sure I've used up my favours with them now.

    I restored that 40 over many years. News: Schaublin sent me a copy of the wiring diagram but also stated that they don't provide support or parts for these lathes any longer. I've also received a copy of the Automatic Threading manual which includes the Dog Rail 160-12.120 which is on my lathe...

    Last wednesday I drove 1200 km to bring home a 160. This thread is intended to document my progress as I get it going. There are lots of hurdles in the way but the first is behind me, it has landed in my garage. Don't mind the 1 ton rating of the beam, the span is reduced and a structural...

    1,205 km round trip today and it's home. I'll start a new thread sometime.

    I'm taking the leap of faith. Probably end up regretting it but here we go.

    Feedback requested in a Schaublin 160 for sale.

    This is the message from the seller "It seem to be original. I have test the machine. The only problem is the variable speed motor. The reset trip when we are changing speed." I'm at a loss or many hours ahead of me for wire tracing, without a wiring diagram. I only have 240 3 phase, not 600V...

    I should mention it is 5.5hrs away, so 11 hrs of driving.

    I wrote the seller again and received this picture. Does it look like an original electrical box?

    Thanks for the reply. That makes it sound like that lathe is missing a lot of electrical components necessary to control it as well.
