I wonder if they turn up on eBay: looks like a nice upgrade.
Once in a while. $$$$ but a sweet upgrade.
In that dial upgrade thread that I started some time back (maybe I will get that done this year) there are some pics of a Stelling dial that I borrowed from another site. Google Stelling dial or Stelling Logan ... you should get a couple of hits.

There is one for a Sheldon on there right now. That's a steal if we had a Sheldon.

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.:tranquility: 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".:D
That's funny.

Here is my 2537-2-v-h as I found it in the wild

And here in my shop being cleaned
20170925_190534[1].jpg

It came with the double tool post cross slide, and both tool posts. 20170925_190454.jpg

The former owner had added a compound which I think is a Southbend, and what appears to be a home made/shop built tool post.

Proud new owner of a Logan 14" 7502 Chucker lathe. (So is my buddy it turns out - they are perfect twins.)

Needs a little cleaning but is otherwise in very excellent condition. I'm on the lookout now for a tailstock, saddle, cross slide/compound base and compound from a Logan 65xx lathe to get rid of the turret setup. Given the availability of used parts for these 14" Logan I think I have my work cut out for me. Thankfully the lathe was cheap.

If anybody knows of any parts out there, let me know! Thanks!

New member, new 10" Logan lathe.

It came with a QC gearbox, power apron and a Forkardt 3-jaw chuck.

Not sure if the QC gearbox will work with this lathe - I will post a question on that separately. I had a look at the apron last night and I think it will work after I clean it up.

The chuck needs a back plate. I have a blank on the way. This will be my first real project.

Just sold this 9B-17. Pristine!! Three owners (now 4). Hated to do it, but can't justify two lathes.

I still have a 1957, but will post pics after the rebuild is complete.

1941 Logan 700. After 76yr it's still serviceable. Bedways are in excellent shape. FILTHY when I got it. Missing a few parts, easily obtained. Missing the steady rest. Old rocker style tool post that I'm thinking of replacing with an Aloris or similar. Over the years someone had retrofitted a Drum Controller to allow FWD and REV of Split phase 1/3hp motor, that may go away. Still think it's fun lathe.

Was the original switch just a simple "On/Off" switch? Maybe RLE can tell me based on his 1947.

A simple ON-OFF switch has almost always been the default on most lathes up to about 12" unless they shipped from the factory with a 3-phase motor installed. But almost all manufacturers have always offered as an extra cost option a reversing switch, usually of the drum style.

If you decide to use a switch that reverses the motor, you'll need to take care not to spin the chuck off the spindle. My Model 200 came
with a switch like that and I removed it. (I don't trust myself!)

I saw this happen 30yrs ago with a 14" Cincinnati. It "dinged" up the ways pretty badly and got the operators foot as well. I'm with Nogoingback.

Hi, new here, been lurking for while enjoying some good Logan Lathe info! Recently bought a Logan 816 off craigslist and spent the last couple weeks getting it disassembled, cleaned up and painted. I’m just getting into hobby machining so i have a lot to learn! In a previous occupation during high school and college, i used a lathe and a mill occasionally but really learning just how much i didn’t know back then.

I think i got pretty lucky with this purchase considering i didn’t really test anything before i bought it. It was so close to me,so i just took a chance on it...no to mention the guy delivered it for me. Anyway, I’ll post a few pics of my new baby...



What it looked like the day i bought it..no, i dint pay asking price:

During the initial cleanup...in hindsight, i should have just gave it a really good disassembly and cleaning as it was in pretty good shape and had a cool patina, but i got a little ahead of myself and started painting before i realized it...oh well, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out: (hopefully pics show up a little clearer once this is posted)

It's nice to see an oldie like yours. Looks like a pretty big chuck: is that 8"?

I have wanted a lathe for quite a while. I won an auction on a Monarch 10x20EE a few years ago. I got discouraged in a hurry,
the three phase power and the weight of the machine itself. I sold it and have been looking for a smaller lathe since. I was looking
at the Grizzley Lathes and the like. I found this machine on CL, had never heard of Logan Lathes. I liked the size and it was 110vac, and
the owner brought it to me. I think its a '41 serial number 2314. Not much in the way of tooling, two chucks, a Phase 2 tool post,
and a chuck for the tail stock. I'm considering buying a set of legs and a chip pan. Not sure about that though, I may just put it on a bench.

And the tooling that came with it. Trying to find homes for this stuff is proving to be a challenge.
Just saw this, and Kev?>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> :you suck:
Great score with all that tooling... (4) chucks for crying out loud! really?
Can't quite make out the center of the picture, which is probably a good thing...
