SHOW US YOUR LATHE

Post by BE_ZERO_BE » Fri Jul 03, 2020 2:24 pm

Many of us have a lathe to support our Model T and other projects.

Show us your lathe.

Mine is a PBR (Perico Baroni & Raimondi) made in Italy in 1966.
It's a 12 x 40 and can cut SAE & metric threads.
It replaced an Atlas 10 x 36 Pick-O-Matic lathe.

It seems there are a lot of these Craftsmens around. It's made a lot of T and other stuff.

Atlas Lathe.jpg
I am blessed to have met a nice 93 year old man who decided to hang up his guns and lighten his load. He certainly did not use it much. This Atlas 12 - 36 is from about March 1981 at the end of production. He saved the original manual in mint condition, many South Bend 1938 Bulletin booklets, all the original attachments and acquired a lot of tools. This has changed my shop life in a wonderful way. I love this hobby and am grateful to meet so many of you.

These are gorgeous "studio shots" of lathes! Wow! :-)
Have a little chinaman behind me and a Woods Brothers angled-turret under the lean-one. Not good enough to be called lean-to.
A couple of not so pretty shots of the two SB lathes here.
465. Down the ways of a 12x6 (they used total bed length, not capacity way back then), #926 off the line,
sold June of 1911 to F. E. Satterlee , a Minneapolis based machinery dealer. Screaming along at perhaps 200 rpm's.
Making a missing rear bushing for a front axle reach (Front radius) for an old Twin City tractor.
Guessing on the dim's with surrounding info and research.
Where the ball would hook up to the pan on a T for that reference...
687. Nice little SB 9x36 from March of 1938, type C with a crummy chuck. It was GIVEN to me a few months ago. I waited for almost 5 years for this little buddy. I would've paid for it but no.
I actually stole the Standard/Blue Streak cupboard out of the dumpster on that trip. Stuffed in the little shop.
Very happy to have them all. Very handy.

I started out with a 1958 built Wade 8A precision toolmakers lathe. While only 8” x 24” capacity, it was a very impressive small lathe. From the original literature it appears to have been a competitive brand to the Hardinge super precision bench lathes of the time. Features like variable spindle speed, prismatic bed ways, taper attachment, spindle speed tachometer, English/metric quick change gear box, and A-2 taper quick thread spindle nose all made the lathe real easy to use. I added an Aloris quick change tool post, and mounted some modified digital calipers to use as a DRO to improve repeatability and precision.

The options I didn’t have were the optional electric variable power feed, and the lever action collet closer. The spindle was factory machined to accept a W series collet (exactly the same as the 5c collet except slightly shorter OAL and used buttress thread profile). My plan was to convert the lathe to the much more available 5c collet, but never came across a closer... until after I gave the lathe to a friend that is...!😉. So he can do the work someday.


Don’t have a pic of the one I had... but this one is almost identical (thanks google)

Enjoying the lathe pictures. :)
Kevin, that Wade 8A does have some similarities to the Hardinge tool room lathe I used at work.

Here is mine. Myford 254s self imported direct from England new in 1985. 10” swing, 20” between centers. Inch or metric thread cutting.

I have added a few upgrades, variable speed DC motor, tach, Aloris QC tool post, etc. It is surprisingly rigid for its size, accurate and a joy to use. Have 3 jaw, 4 jaw chucks and a 10” faceplate. Setup shown is an ER-25 collet holder for small diameter work.

Seeing Bob's Budweiser Ice Cream Neon sign reminds me that during prohibition Budweiser went into the Diesel Engine business. They provided industrial and marine engines for industry and ships. In fact Bob will remember the Washington State Ferry Kalakaua plying Puget Sound for many years. When it was finally scrapped it was noted the engine rocker cover and name plate stated it was a Budweiser manufactured motor. A little known fact lost in history.

My Monarch. Light as a butterfly. It is a baby as Series 60's go. 16" swing (catalog), 18.5" actual, 36" between centers, built in 1948. Despite its size it can still do very fine work on small pieces. Its only limitation for little things is that the spindle doesn't go over 700 rpm.

Mine is a old Atlas that came out of the Nasa shop at Moffett field a long time ago, I got it out of a retired from Nasa machinist that had it stored in his chicken shed, it even came with the original manuals.

2000 Milltronics CNC, 16” x 60” bed, 7.5 hp, 3000 rpm, 8 position turret, pneumatic 5c collet closer, and flood coolant. She’s got a few miles on ‘er, but still makes good parts every time I fire ‘er up.

Makes a great flat spot too...!😉

Atlas 9" long bed converted to 10". Not a quick change setup. The 3 jaw chuck is really out, but as long as I don't take what I am working on out, it works ok. Guess I will have to get some photos, don't have any on this computer.
I know the voices aren't real but damn they have some good ideas! :shock:

Our 10" South Bend from 1943, probably came out of a WW2 mobile workshop truck, hence the lightweight under cabinet, it was in a sorry state when we got it but luckily all parts are still available so we refurbished it and it works just dandy for us !

Kevin the cabinet is quite sturdy but on the light side, a heavier cast lower makes a big difference in stability, but hey it was cheap and it came with all the right gears for turning SAE threads, which is not that common on lathes our side of the big pond. I didn't think twice when it came up for sale for just that reason

Not a lathe... but kind of a linear lathe...🤔

An ‘ol Ammco 7” shaper. Probably ‘50’s ish. Came to me from an estate sale... one of those “if you want this, you gotta take that” type deals. I was completely cleaned up, repainted, and mounted to a Craftsman table saw stand. I had no use for it, and couldn’t get rid of it... so I found a use for it! Made up a fixture to broach the axle keyway in the rear hubs I make for the Buffalo wire wheels. Been a good machine, but a 1/4” keyway in chromoly is about all it can handle

K&T 2HL Swivel Head. The lightest vertical mill that K&T made at about 3,500 lbs. Has a 40 NMTB spindle with the high speed option up to 2,400 rpm.

Here’s my ‘ol Prentice Bros. 16 lathe. Has brass drip oilers and was originally designed to run off a overhead flat belt system. Has the big wide belt pulley on the drive end. Dated 1888 &1896. I fitted a smaller chuck as the originals that came with it are huge beasts. When i bought it, i welded up a framework so it would be on casters. The seller loaded it up on my trailer with his fork lift. When i got home i laid out a plywood pathway and was trying to figure out how i was going to roll this thing off my trailer, up a curb, over 10 ft of plywood covered dirt, up onto some not so level concrete and then down a couple inches into my shop all by myself. Just then a moving truck from heaven pulled up with two monstrous men, “Do you need a hand with that?” In less that 5 minutes my old lathe was in my shop. I’ll never forget those generous souls, they were life savers!

A bump just to keep the thread alive. Marvel No. 2 power hacksaw salvaged from a factory several years after it flooded. Not as efficient as a horizontal bandsaw but takes up a lot less space and sure beats doing it by hand.

I remember one like that at work years ago.

I found this brake drum lathe at a swap meet a few years ago. I thought I might adapt it for spinning brass as that is hard on my real lathe. As it turns out it is perfect just the way it is for rotating hubs, drums and all sorts of round things to clean. I just hold sand paper or wire brush etc against the spinning object and let the machine do the work. Water and solvent can be used in small amounts but too much can fly 360 degrees and make a mess.
BrkLth1.jpg
BrkLth2.jpg
I didn't pay much. As soon as I bought it another fellow was very disappointed that he missed out on it. It had some special motor he wanted. Since he didn't want the machine I let him have the motor for what I paid. I found a cheap motor that works fine for it.
When did I do that?

Leo, I have the mate to your 10"X 24 South Bend lathe. It is called a tool room lathe according to South Bend when I called for parts. Mine has a tag rivited on the front saying it " meets the standards of the war production act"! My stand is the same as yours and is very solid! Lots of parts on US eBay. I make a lot of parts for antique bicycles on mine.

Bill the little South Bend is a great asset to our workshop, it could do with a scraping of the bed and the gears are a bit noisy at higher revs but we use it for the quick fixes and small jobs, we're sure happy to have it !
Some great behemoths here on this thread !

My lathe is a drill press and a file.

My mill is a vise and a file. :)

1943 Southbend 9" model A off of a Navy ship according to Southbend. Got it in 2018 for $400, and completely rebuilt it. I don't know how I lived without it for so long...I mostly use it for rebuilding starters and generators, but I'm constantly finding new uses for it.
