And some more pictures. This is the apron and saddle just pulled off of the lathe. Note all of the crud that had accumulated over the years.

And some more pictures. First three pictures are the aluminum plug I made to replace the stamped out sheet metal from the factory. I also tapped it with a pipe plug thread for later removal if needed. Next two pictures is the handwheel pinion that I made to replace the old worn damaged one. The next two are of the apron partially assembled waiting for the handwheel pinion gear to be installed. Last two pictures are the finished pinion gear checking runout. It's within 0.0015" TIR. BTW- the bore of the gear is a .438" broached hex, doone by a friend of mine. And the shaft has a hex cut on it for a close fit to the gear. I had to index the gear until I got the best runout. Once done, the gear is pinned in place with a tapered pin. Last of the pictures show the new pinion gear trimmed up to look nice.

I've been working on the Rockwell lathe every chance I get. Here's the latest.
The apron has been put back on the lathe and done a bunch of touch up painting. Note the counter weights on the back of the saddle holding it down while I work on getting the taper attachment ready to mount.

Have the taper attachment cleaned up, painted, and assembled ready to mount. I will say, this is one big massive taper attachment for such a small lathe.

Thanks Ken,
I may have one! I had a chance to work on the lathe this evening and I found this in the cabinet



View attachment 137175


Looks like the previous owners made something that looks like a "c" to replace it and threw this in the cabinet with some other parts.
It looks worn on the sides and the diameter of the pin is somewhere around .360. The hole in the shaft in this lathe measures .376.

Take Care,
Keith
I just purchased a Rockwell 14" and the dog you pictured is worn out did you come up with a drawing that one could use to make a new part thanks James
