    14" Drill Press 14F-3A

    Narrowing it down Going thru catalogs it looks like mine is post 1962. '59 shows the clamp on depth limiter while the 1960 has the pinion style. Also the Quill bearing adjustment in 1960 does not have the locking screw in the center as the previous models. The Easy up Table appears 1st in...

    14" Drill Press 14F-3A

    I had thought about that. I read Paula's and your threads and was thinking that it might be a way to get more usability at an almost 0 cost (what is the MS unit worth?).... but it is in such nice original shape I am not sure I can do it. I have a Clausing mill that came with a single phase...

    14" Drill Press 14F-3A

    Yes, sorry - Morse Taper. It came with a Jacobs chuck spindle. MT2 was an option for the drill press new, and MT3 was an accessory option. I have some MT2 and some MT3 drills and such so if I could find one it would be handy. Base unit is 4 speeds 720-4325 with a 1725 60hz motor. The...

    14" Drill Press 14F-3A

    Upon further research the spindle is easily accessed and tightened (and changed!) by removing the nameplate on the front and lowering the quill to access the setscrew (locking the quill with the depth settings). I will give that a shot the next time I am at the press. Anyone have a M2 or M3...

    SB Drill Press Multi-Speed Attachment

    I just bought a 14F-3A drill press with this installed. I read through a lot of the posts here to glean what I could. Paula has a great write up on her restoration and some info on the MS attachment you have. See it here: Upgrade for SB Drill Press Post 35 has pictures to show it mounted...

    14" Drill Press 14F-3A

    I have recently acquired a very nice model 14F-3A drill press with a lot of bells and whistles. It has the table adjustment "pump", multi-speed pulley attachment, and 2 accessory tool trays. It is fairly quiet but I have new bearings ordered. I need to take it apart anyway as the spindle shaft...

    Is my VFD undersized?

    No electrician here but since in post #5 you said it wouldn't run on your RPC and that mechanically it all turns freely I would suspect an internal motor issue? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Generator connection

    Normally ( and for good reason) if your generator isn't large enough to run your whole house the transfer switch has separate switches for each load. This allows to balance the load if needed by turning on just what you need. The switch takes care of the interlock issue to prevent any possible...

    Pacemaker 16-30 moving questions

    It was the toe on the base casting- the seller had all the tools and skids. It was my first move and I brought 4x4 from home but soon realized I needed twice as many to do a proper job. I think I had brought gr 5 hdwe for mounting machine to original skid but then bought lags to construct the...

    Pacemaker 16-30 moving questions

    I moved a 16-54 a couple years ago. I built 4x4 skids and used a rollback. I did a post on it and pics should still be good. If not email me. I believe the bulletins have a recommended sling setup. Make sure to bring lots of common sense and a bit of physics knowledge and you will do fine...

    OT Looking for recomendations for an all Stainless steel Barbecue

    It keeps the heat outside in the summer - that is one of the main reasons. Plus it is a social time on the patio with friends / neighbors. Especially after this LONG Looooong winter!! :willy_nilly:

    OT Looking for recomendations for an all Stainless steel Barbecue

    If you don't mind eating food that hasn't been charred I would suggest a Holland Grill. It is not for everyone but it does make good food. It is more Like a outdoor oven- guaranteed not to flare up (aluminum baffle between the HD Gas Burner and the grilling surface (expanded SS) We like ours...

    18 x54 pacemaker

    Nice looking lathe. I have just started using mine so I am not all too familiar with all the ins and outs of the Pacemaker - they are just awesome machines. Mine is a bit tricky to get into and out of threading - sometimes I have to jog the clutch to make it click in positively - maybe...

    Opinions: Can a shop made copper head gasket hold up on a 2 cylinder diesel ?

    The variation I try to use is "the customer isn't always right, but he is the customer" - as long as the economy stays slow, and the "customer" has the green, we will do what we have to do to survive. Keep us posted how it turns out.

    OT: Metal detector for underground wires

    Take the 811 locations with a grain of salt - especially since OP laid the cables. My contractor buried our electric from the pole to the meter on the house (36" down) during renovations. 3 years later needed to do some digging in the back yard. RGE came and marked the cable - 2' wide strip...

    Do All 3012-U Questions

    I bought a Do All 3012-U last year because it was at less than scrap price due to transmission issues. I finally had a chance to get a look at it and it is in really nice shape. The complaint was it wouldn't stay in gear/ couldn't shift it. I pulled the transmission and will disassemble it...

    14x54 Pacemaker question

    Success! 3/16 Allen on 12" extension -backed out 2 screws 1 turn, guard came right off. The adjustment nut is under the instruction plate just as Archie said. There was just one small slotted setscrew - loosened and preloaded the bearings- voila cross feed is .003. Thank you for the...

    Off Topic: Infrared thermometer uses...

    I am fairly new to welding and had a fixture to weld for a press brake kit. I used it to find the coolest areas to weld in 1" sections to prevent warping. Bought it to find temp of fireplace surround - Install was by the book but borderline dimension to the wood mantle.

    14x54 Pacemaker question

    Mike, This is all new to me and that kind of makes sense. Never thought about the preload on the cutting side. Mechanically I would think it should cut same taper back and forth but with a few .001 for the preload. I think the thrust bearing issue is responsible for most of the abnormality...
