    Emma, great looking engine. By the way, are you the same "Emma" with the YouTube channel?

    Wyvern engine Edgar T Westbury

    Impressive. Just working on my 2nd basic engine, and I hope to one day being able to build something like this one.

    Wizard lathe restoration

    I forgot to ask about it's capabilities. How do you like working with it? I do have a Taig lathe which is pretty small as well (which by the way performs very nicely); but, it does not look as beefy.

    John, I was reviewing this thread, and I noted that I neglected to comment on the fact that you were spot on with your assessment of the worn cone pulley bore and as to the bearings 👍. I have been keeping the cone pulley lubed with oil. As I have posted, a bronze bushing was placed in the bore...

    Rocker Style vs. QCTP

    Thank's, BaronJ. The part I am not fully understanding is whether the base of the tool post rests on the top of the compound, or is it only the adjusting screw that does?

    Rocker Style vs. QCTP

    Okay. I finally obtained a 2" x 2" x 2.5" piece of mild steel. A machinist that I know just gave it to me. I may just make one that is very basic and in no form or fashion a quick change. Baron, looked at the pictures of your toolpost, again, and am having trouble visualizing how the height...

    Rocker Style vs. QCTP

    We have 1 metal supplier in the area. Aluminum round stock is easily available there by the foot at very reasonable prices. Problem is, for the steel 2" stock, I had to buy a minimum around 10' (can't recall exact length) length. We do have a scrap yard where I have made some nice finds...

    Rocker Style vs. QCTP

    Thank's, Baron. Looks like something I would like to make. That is very generous of you to offer to make a drawing for me; but, it is not necessary at this time. I have made a tool post, but not quick change, for a 6" Craftsman I once had. I wanted to make another, larger, for the current...

    Rocker Style vs. QCTP

    My lathe, a Select 816B, came with rocker style tool post and holders (see this thread for lathe details: Select 816 B Lathe Acquired Have various holders, including a boring bar. So far, I have only used the left hand, right hand, and cut-off holders. To me, they seem plenty rigid. I did do...

    Select 816 B Lathe Acquired

    As an update, I ended up purchasing a new Shars 5" 3 jaw chuck and a backplate. Should arrive next week. The back plate is machined with holes; but, I will have to cut to fit the shoulder. Chuck comes with 2 sets of jaws.

    Certainly is a specialty item that is waiting for the person who has specifically been looking for one.

    Atlas Lathe Milling Attachment

    I am selling an Atlas lathe milling attachment. Appears that it could be model # 500A. Pictures show other numbers (10-501, 10-502, and 8188, if I see it correctly) on item, but not 500A. I have never used it (obtained with a used lathe), and don't foresee a use for me in the future. Appears to...

    John, Thanks, I will certainly use that method next time. Great method. I wish I would have thought of it before the pounding.
