    I’m trying to sort out some of the possibilities to put this back together and get the spindle pre loaded and running true. I’m figuring a slow drying Loctite so one could assemble everything and hopefully tweak things into place. Or am I being...

    I checked mine and have 7 thou on one end and 8 thou clearance on the other end of the 51mm shaft. It has gauled ? where it was run dry at the ends. Inch or so But it would have been a bit tighter fit. There is a oil feed groove cut into them...

    The skewers are put into the holes that form the fill hole and sight glass. There is a seal in either side of the bearing housing that forms the bath. Only if you get excited with the oiling of the bushings will you get The belts to run in oil...

    Bought a 40 yr old Clanger Taiwanese lathe and tearing it down to fix and use. Getting the bull gear off the main spindle was a big effort as it is a interference fit. Or it is now. I ended up dinging the area where the seal runs. I could...
