    Moving Grizzly G0776

    Hi All, I just received notification that the G0776 lathe that I order has shipped and I'm trying to prepare for delivery. I ordered liftgate service which should help get the pallet off the truck. I was thinking about renting a pallet jack to get the lathe into the shop. What I wanted to know...

    My Atlas QC 54

    Admins, I am not sure if this belongs here or in the projects side, but I thought I would start here. I introduced myself in the new members forum a while back but never got a chance to post an actual thread for my lathe. This lathe was originally owned by the father of a family friend. When...

    [Newbie] LMS 5100/7350 vs. Grizzly G0602

    Hi all. I’m a beginner home machinist and I’m in need of opinions. I’m going to buy my first metal lathe and I’m having trouble deciding. While I know a PM lathe seems to be preferred, they are outside my current budget. I think I’ve narrowed my choice down to either a LMS 5100 or even a 7350...

    Peerless 1/2 Hp Motor 220 Wiring Question

    Hi guys! I’m putting together an old Clausing lathe that I got from my my grandfather. It has an old Peerless 1/2 hp motor that can either be wired for 110 or 220. It is single phase. It has 6 leads coming out of it which are labeled: T1,T2,T3,T4, C1,C2. I would like to run it for 220. I am not...

    Atlas Frankenstein Lathe

    So I have an atlas lathe that I am looking to get some more information about. From my own research, it appears that a previous owner has taken a 10" headstock and mounted it to a bed from an Atlas 12" along with the 12" carriage and tailstock. It looks like they machined and adapter/raiser...

    Would a Clausing 10" Model 4914 be a good first lathe for a beginner?

    I'm a beginner looking to buy my first lathe. I'm not interested in a mini-lathe and I'm not ready to spend $3k+ on a Precision Matthews. I do want a lathe with some heft that I can grow into and will enable me to take larger cuts when needed. I found a Clausing 10" Model 4914 metal lathe for...

    SB9 - thread dial castings

    I had printed myself a South Bend thread dial years ago. Last year a friend who has access to a NICE 3D printer made me one out of a composite plastic (nylon and carbon fiber I believe), and it works great. Well that same friend just decided to get into casting, and this was his first...

    My first lathe is a Frejoth/Central/Grizzly 12x36 Lathe

    Hi I just joined H-M and I thought it would be good to introduce myself. I just bought a 1986 Central Machinery lathe: made in Taiwan 900G which seems to be a spitting image of the Grizzly G9249 but with less safety covers! This lathe is rather old but it shows signs of being well taken care of...

    My chuck done gone bad..

    I have a 6" independent 4-jaw chuck on my Atlas TH54 lathe. Other night I was about to dial in a stud for threading and the (jaw) screw stripped its thread. On a closer look, the threads in the chuck body are just plain worn out. I knew they were worn, but not that bad (or so I thought). Well...

    Another Lathe Hand Crank Thread? (FINISHED!)

    I am pretty new to machining, although my father was a hobbyist and my stepfather was a machinist, and feel like I am learning quickly. That said, I decided I wanted to really get myself setup for success. I inherited all of my father's tools after he passed away and he had a Smithy CB-300 3-in1...

    Torture Testing the Unimat SL1000

    I have a Unimat SL1000 and a DB200. they are enchanting due to their small footprint as well as for the precision in which they are made. I'm torture testing my SL1000 to find the boundaries of operation. (and possibly step over them from time to time) for the control portion of the experiment...
