Glad to see the Cincinnati forum. Just to get things started, I'll post some photos of my freshly restored 1960 Hydrashift 10x36. I've only used it on a few small projects, but it seems like a rock solid machine.

First real project on the Cincinnati lathe. I needed a new pulley for a band saw, so I made a new one last night (actually two nights). The lathe worked quite well.

Here is the original, and the chunk of mystery metal that I'm making the new one from.

And here is the finished product.

Awesome looking machine. Great job on the restoration, probably the fastest one I've seen yet. I plan to own a hydra shift one day.

Beautiful machine. I wish I had one in my garage.
I'm also glad to see that Cincinnati Machines now have their own forum.

I used to run a Hydrashift in a machine shop back in another lifetime then I owned one for a while. Really good machine.

No problem. Just some 1 1/2" stock welded to a backer.
