Hi Sura,tell us a bit more history of how and where you found the Myford lathe
It is an Ml7 made in 1949 and its 2 years younger than me.I hope you are
going to spend some time refurbishing it rather than just getting it working
Wonder how it got over from Nottingham to your neck of the woods

Hi Sura

I'm sitting with a ML10 and a Sieg C4 in my little study whilst there is a Super 7 with a gear box in my little workshop( in the snows, grrrrr)

I've had several ML7's in the past. So you can get some spares if necessary and there are plenty of books which were written by past masters and still remain in print today.

OK, you have to think in Imperial dimensions for most of the time but a lot of models are designed in Feet and inches anyway.

Even then, a transposing gear of 63 teeth, 20 DP will create metric threads but a correct 127 one will be too large. You CAN use a 21 tooth gear for most purposes but the choice is really yours. RDG tools in the UK do have things like that.

So we all wish you every success and remind you that many of us have had considerable 'Myford' experience should it be needed.

Cheers

Norm

hello Dear mechanists . Bazmak : I planed to find some project in the late of my life ( but I still young and little handsome ).I try many hobbies . The altimate project I thought was steamloco .So spent quite little time ( sorry boss for some report sick ) to study lathe and milling at workshop in collage in BKK last 3 yeas ago . then I tour steamloco web , first find sr. LBSC and people talk about ML ,dl free ebook from johntom web .Buy 2nd hand lathe and milling . Then started to find ML in thailand . Most I found almost less than 60 % profile left . no table no cover .......... After make some part of loco ,Yes they may easy to be helped with laser cut , but working by hand can recieve more impressive feelling.......... I always practice torching for boiler and pipe work but not success . I ran bicycle tour around hometown to talk with the latheman and the miller , respect all of them to be my teacher .............my life have responsible with half doen of cats ( at least ) ....A must of daily WORK is biking to buy fresh tuna for my cat-boss at market 3 kms from home every day . Actually along the way I can find technical collage only 1km !!!!! from home and the workshop that I met sis ML is 1.5 km !!!!!! from home .... I just want to learn or find more knowledge about metalwork , so I biked into the workshop good start is offer the profit . I ask if he has any lathe for sale . he show big one . I dont want . then he show the lady ML .... I was shocked few seconds ..... But after that we have conversation outlound .....He said he bought this ML from Bkk last 10 yrs more . never use , just for show the spirit profile of old mechanist ....he liked my word said I want ML for showing as museum !!!....he had never seen anyone bike to buy lathe ......better ever he accepted me to be his student ...... From the machanist hand everything back to normal motor , gears , belt . She seems quite more tan skin ...cosmetics her is very happy job ....Now she alive . and be my sister my godness and the point of view of my home
