It's usually the musician that is commanding the instrument.My 1959 9B-28-1 its proved to be a very good little machine.
I've owned it for over 20 years and as a journeyman machinist who specialized in operating large lathes and boring mills it has surprised me at what you can accomplish with it!
Hi - how do you compare the Logan 922 to the 9" South Bend? I have an opportunity to purchase an 926 and wanted your opinion!Hey Guys,
I'm new here, but have looked at this thread several times over the past year. Owned 3 9" south bends, and one Logan 210, Now I have a Logan 922 11x36". It's a nice lathe for it's size, but I'm hoping to get another larger Clausing 5900 series lathe.
I got the 922 about 5 months ago. Was in decent shape, but it does have a few issues I need to work on yet. Just put a new Phase II QCTP on it last week. Which was a huge improvement from the old lantern. I mainly bought mine for doing gun barrels on, but I'm have done more odd ball projects on it than gunsmith work. I want to make sure everything is set up how I want it before I start spinning barrels. Planning to have it powder coated some day and have the ways reground. I can't resize my photo, but here's a video I made on it.
Wow this one you did a hell of a job on, I think I am going to strip my 6565 and repaint the ol girlMy avatar shows what I started with, and this is an in process shot. Working on a taper attachment right now while I am waiting for my chip pan to be blasted clean... This is an 820 with the turret tail stock..

And here it is completed, a few bushings to make and finish the hand wheels, and ready for another 60 + years of service.

I debated pulling it off the bench to move it and mount to a stand I'd make. I'm very glad I didn't do that--it's very nice to have those storage drawers.Your 816 looks like a twin to mine, but it was converted to the stand model. I've considered making a bench to bring it back to "original", and gain a bunch of storage space.
Stuff is good!! You know things are finally going your way, when you have so much stuff that you can bring in big stuff and the wife no longer realizes something "new" has been added. Brought in a little #1 Hossfeld bender a couple years back, placed it right in front of where she parks her car ... she never even noticed. 6 months go buy and she asks ... "where did this come from"? I could honestly reply "Oh, I've had that for quite a while".Yes, I've been surprised how much new stuff I "need" to accumulate for this thing!
Hi all! So the lathe bug finally bit, and I started my search a couple of months ago. Originally looked at Atlas/Craftsman models, but then started to really like the Logans. Had narrowed it down to wanting an 11" model, when a newer 10" popped up for sale close by. Long story short, I am the proud owner of my first lathe, a Logan 1821, built in 1957. Crusty and rusty, I am now in mid-refurbish, and having a ball. YouTube and these forums have changed the way one pursues a passion, and I have learned so much in so little time, it is just amazing. So, here are some pics for your perusal. Some are before, and some are after. Working on QCGB currently, still have the headstock, and motor assembly to go through. using WD40, EvapoRust, and ScotchBrite fine and ultra fine pads for the cleanup so far.

That is a Stelling Crossfeed dial. A sweet aftermarket part, once made by a guy around Pasadena (If I remember correctly). Logan listed them in their catalogues for a while. I think all were 0-200 graduations.Just noticed the large cross feed dial on your lathe. Is that a shop made part, or is aftermarket? (Or do you know?). I'd like to fit something like that to mine some day.
