    D1-3 Sjogren chuck with 2J collets - $450 + shipping

    D1-3 Sjogren chuck with a good assortment of 2j collets in variable condition. Best as I can tell the chuck is in decent condition; I've used it a few dozen times and seems as repeatable as anything else that I have! I don't work to tenths, so I don't really know the exact accuracy of the unit...

    Rigid tapping with a Deckel FP1

    no no NO! No need to wire in a reversing switch - just tip the mill upside down; voila! Spindle now goes the other direction! No, wait... Just flip the part over and turn the spindle on. No wait... Dag nabit... Just tell Dan that it was meant to work with diametrical collapsing...

    10EE bed weight

    When I scrapped the bed for mine, it was right around 400 lbs for scrap weight, and the pallet that came from Monarch with the replacement was a little over, but that also included a saddle. This was for a '54 machine. I recall no shims on my machine. That was awhile ago though, and my memory...

    Monarch AA Tail stock refurbishment questions....

    That's what they tell us... but I'm not so sure... Thanks for the explanation. I asked as a point of discourse - not to state that I had a reason to think that the inserts were a method that was inferior to any other. For the record, I think that VetteBob's solution is fantastic, and would...

    Monarch AA Tail stock refurbishment questions....

    Out of curiosity, why would one of these methods be "better" than the other? In one instance, you are significantly altering the casting by performing multiple machining operations (milling, grinding, drilling, bolting in inserts, grinding, scraping to align, then boring, etc.). In the other...

    The ultimate Kennedy tool box?

    Well, different strokes and all that... I still think I could have just pushed it faster, crummy casters and all. And I wouldn't call getting rid of J. Clarkson after 22 series of Top Gear killing the cash cow quickly. That dude's been in trouble a bunch of times over a period of many years.

    Monarchs That Aren't 10EEs

    Total side-track, but where abouts do you live, Engineer? I've been back to visit my grandparents (now dead) in Groton, very near Cortland. I love that part of the country. I actually went through the same mental process once, before a visit back there. I thought, hey! that would be...

    How not to pick up a VMC

    Maybe the truck was the backup plan, in case the mill fell off the trailer. That tonneau cover looks pretty stout...

    Monarch AA Tail stock refurbishment questions....

    Thanks Vettebob - that was very interesting!

    Monarch AA Tail stock refurbishment questions....

    Vettebob - any chance you have photos of what the base looked like after machining, but before bolting in the inserts? I'm assuming that you scraped in those inserts after mounting to the tailstock - is that correct? Did you align the tailstock dead flat, or with a slight upword nosing? Very...

    nissan300ztt - failed deal

    I think the actual ad notes multiple items, and that this particular one is sold.

    Monarch 10EE tragedy

    I'm very sorry to hear about your experience. That certainly takes all the joy of the arrival of a long awaited machine, and turns it into heartache! You probably already have a plan for assessing the damage. I'd start by following what ever suggestion Monarch had (trying to fire it up)...

    Brown Sharpe Omniversal 0

    Don't forget to add "and communicate to people in an entirely different language via free translation software!" -Peter (the guy that bugged you all day at the scraping class a few years ago). And I want the Omniversal talk, photos, and stories to continue...

    Cold Saw Blade vibrations.

    I've used a bunch of cold saws, and exactly 1 worked really well. The other 4 or 5 ranged from sometimes worked alright, sometimes not to absolutely terrible to the point of uselessness. On the one that was sometimes OK, sometimes not (a Pedrazolli Super Brown), the sharpening of the blade...

    How can grooves be made on a rim of a tube?

    If the OP still decides to make this, I think that it might be possible to leave the part in the lathe, and then grind a lathe tool to the desired shape, and then cut each notch with the part stationary (lathe spindle not turning) in a broach-like/shaper like action, hand feeding the cutter...
