Finally an update! The rest of 2019 was a busy time for me and nothing got done on my lathe project. Today I finally got to install the motor/gearbox assembly into the machine as well as the braking resistor bank.

In the build-up to this point, I had acquired a used gearbox and pulley. The sliding gear of the gearbox had to be adapted to work with the motor I bought. I sleeved it with a diameter 1.5" x 1/4" 4130 tube - welded and bored to fit with a keyway. I designed and made an adapter plate. After some fiddling to get things to line up properly, I think it turned out pretty good.

I made a base plate that closely resembles the original - although I went by the pictures in the old manual and my particular motor set-up. The pulley I acquired needed to have the V-grooves widened. I had to fix the key onto the motor shaft - I elected to fasten it with a disc that is bolted into the end of the shaft. Everything seems to fit well and shift into and out of direct drive. We'll see how it goes once I power up the motor. DSC09210.JPG DSC09209.JPG DSC09208.JPG DSC09207.JPG DSC09206.JPG DSC09205.JPG DSC09204.JPG DSC09203.JPG DSC09202.JPG DSC09201.JPG DSC09200.JPG
