    4 line-shaft machines followed me home from a museum - history and 1st operation in 70 years

    I know it’s an old post but the Hamilton serial number is stamped on top near the tail stock. Mine is serial number 51. I’m pretty sure your machine is older because they quit making that gearbox by 1903. kelly

    Need help identifying a shaper

    It followed me home. It was either me or the scrapper. I paid $60 to the owner and $120 to the lumber yard for lumber to load it with. I’m thinking it looks like a Rockford. No identifying marks found yet. The side cover where a Rockford name would be cast is missing. I haven’t been able...

    This Hamilton followed me home

    I see I never updated this old post. Serial number is #51. Tag on the motor says property of Kaiser shipyards which is where the Oregon was turned into an ammunition barge. Once I got all the hazelnut shells out of the gearbox and lubed it works great. Kelly

    Bridgeport J-Head Lifting Eye Question

    I wouldn’t trust a eyebolt that small. Generally to hoist you would use 50% of rated load. In this case 5000 eyebolts straps and hoist. A wood pallet would break way too easily. A method I’ve used would be to bolt your Bridgeport to two 16’ 4x8s while on the trailer. Then move it forward...

    Another old tool followed me home this week. I got this bandsaw in Seattle Washington. It has no markings or dates on the castings. I don’t see any likely holes where a data tag might of been. The only markings I have found is EG cast into the upper blade guide. Clues: Seattle is home to...

    Is this a south bend 11?

    I found a picture of a 1923 model 27 and it looks just like it. What did the series O have different than the others? I see the apron is different. Since it has a 1 1/2” spindle will the pitch on the newer gears be the same? Thanks for the help Kelly

    Is this a south bend 11?

    I bought this sight unseen from a online farm auction. It was a pallet of lathe parts. It looks like it’s been in pieces for years. I didn’t want to see it go for scrap. I came with a freshly broken foot but I got the piece. 1 5/8” - 8 spindle with a faceplate and a four jaw chuck. A...

    The battle ship Oregon was turned into a ammunition barge at Kalama Washington just up the road from Portland. From there the lathe went to Portland. My lathe has a tag on the motor that says property of kaiser shipyards, Portland Oregon. This was a big builder of liberty ships. From there...

    Hamilton headstock taper

    Ok, using that great chart and the jarno info I think I have a jarno 19 size. I’m guessing that’s not going to be found on eBay. I’d never heard of jarno. When did it fall out of use? Since I’ve got dimensions and blind faith I’ll build one. Thanks all for the great help. Kelly
