    Bought a GP lathe but it needs a chuck, what should I buy?

    I bought an old Goodell Pratt 125 bench lathe but it is apparently missing the chuck. Originally it came with either a #1 or #2 Morse taper depending on the year, since I don't know the year of this lathe and I'm not very familiar with lathe headstocks, I'm not sure what I have or what to go...

    Donation Drive Coming to an End

    Fellow members, we are only $485.00 away from our goal for the fall donation drive. While our site requires technical folks to maintain the site, it also requires dollars to keep things running. We are only $485.00 shy of our donation drive goal and on behalf of the staff and BOD I ask that...

    Spring Donation Drive

    The numbers are up - we've met and slightly exceeded our $2000 goal. I think we can end the Spring Donation Drive as soon as Trent can work his magic and change things back. Your thoughts?

    Reeve's drive maintenence

    I started up my new-to-me PM 1150A drill press tonight. It ran pretty smoothly and I may not need to replace any bearings. But when I tried to change the speed via the Reeves drive I hit some issues. It seems like as the back pulley gets smaller (which actually means the hub is expanding) the...

    Spring Donation Drive

    Okay - Time has passed and it is here. Well it will be Tuesday. The Spring Donation Drive. I didn't get much input - so all I know to do is run it like the Fall drive. Questions may be asked that I can't answer - particularly relating to our non-profit status. Jim - Can you dust off...

    We need a week one donations drive update

    I'll be glad to do it if Andy is tied up with work. The donations have essentially fizzled out in the last few days. We need to bump the spirit up a bit. Week one has been great and we need to encourage the members to donate to help us reach the goal.

    ? How fast to run a belt drive mandrel?

    Snagged one of those old belt drive grinding mandrels with the oil cups and bronze(?) bearings. I have a 1725 rpm motor and want to figure out what speed these things will handle. Primarily going to use it for wire wheel and buffing work while cleaning up tools. The wire wheels I get go to 4500...

    motor shaft change with Reeves drive

    Hi all, I need to find out if it is possible to get an adapter or do whatever I have to do to switch a lame Harbor Fright Chinese motor with a really nice Baldor motor I have. The sticking point is that the original HF motor has about a 4" long shaft (5/8") which it appears to fully need for...
