    ' 57 Noisy Clausing Colchester 13 Gear Noise :(

    I purchased a 1957 Clausing Colchester 13x36 gearhead lathe. My main concern was spindle runout and alignment. I thought that hardened ways would protect the ways.I did not pay enough attention to the head drive gears; bad on me for not checking everything out. The long and the short is there is...

    Hypothetically, but seriously, Clausing 4912 or Logan 10 840?

    In this thought exercise/potential reality, imagine that most everything else is absolutely the same like the drive train, the condition, the tooling, the price, etc...everything relevant is equal in this alternate reality and you're given the choice between a Clausing 4912 and a Logan 10...

    Clausing 5900 Quick Change Gearbox Disassembly

    I've hit a roadblock on breaking down my Clausing 5914 QCGB. Can anyone advise what the proper steps are to complete the breakdown? My guess is to remove the nut on the main gear cluster and then drive it out in the direction of the bearing cover. Once that cluster is out the key is removed...

    Tapered Roller Bearing Removal from Lathe Spindle (Clausing 5914 w/ Video)

    The short of it is that I purchased a lathe with a bent spindle (.0015" out). I was able to find a replacement spindle after removing the original to confirm the location of the bend. Any ideas on how to remove this precision bearing without damaging it? I was thinking of packing the...

    My new Clausing 100 mk3- a few questions

    Hi All- I'm new to the forum, although I've been reading posts here and there for years when I'm doing research for a project. I picked up the Clausing at an estate sale about a month ago, but all the tags had been removed except for the Timken bearing label, so it took me a a few hours to...

    New Almost Clausing 8520 Owner

    Should be picking up the mill and tooling in the morning. I'm looking forward to getting it cleaned up (and probably painted) and moved into my little shop. It's in pretty good shape, in a pro shop for many years (A few feet from a Hardinge HLV). Some TLC and I'll have a nice mill to go with my...

    Clausing Konia FV-1 Mill

    I just purchased a used Clausing Konia FV-1 knee mill from a local machine shop. It is very similar to a the Bridgeport mills I have seen so the functions are fairly apparent. I can find very little information about the machine and would like to know a bit more about it.

    Clean Up Of Early Clausing 100 Mkiii Standard Lathe.

    Picked up a nice dirty Clausing for $500. Thanks to all who helped with ID and advice. It was in a basement shop of a condemned house. Was being used for turning wood so it was covered in sawdust. Everything was there though. I think It's a markIII because of the cover latch, and feet but the...

    Stuck Chuck And Head Cleaning

    I've got a Clausing 4914 that I've been using and working on for about 5 years. I picked it up for $150. It was very complete, including a 3 phase Baldor brake motor. I've been looking for a 4 Jaw chuck for the odd-ball 1-3/4x8 headstock threads. I finally located one and began work to fit...
