Hi Machinists I have had an old lathe and put up with it for so long. Its cast iron and has cast iron bearings which are so worn. Looked at molding some more bearings from aluminium with some tin mixed in but this seems like a lot of messing about. When u haven't got a lathe u cannot do any machining. Just today I looked at adjustable bearing sleeves to be used with tapered roller bearings. Could this be the answer ? There does not seem to be many specifications available so it would be difficult to specify what to order. Anyone have any experience ?
