1940s Metal Lathe [Restoration]


There is no room on the other side of the pin to punch it out These will need to be fixed Surprise! This is locked in…for now This needs replacing, so I can be aggressive. The set screw made a large burr Check to see how worn the bushing are These need new bushings I’ll try to open this after rust removal The original paint is not too bad, but it needs to be redone. This bushing needs to be replaced No lead paint…odd Using wax instead of paint Self-etching primer 4 coats of grey enamel paint This part is aluminum, so I am not going to paint it Making sure all machined surfaces are “flat” These small parts help hold the cross-slide to the ways… These gibs should really be made of brass Apply maple syrup liberally I almost forgot the spacer! This wing-nut clamps the cross-slide down to the bed of the lathe… This amount of movement is not ok… I installed a spacer to help with the slack New bronze bushings Manual says to use oil, not grease This nut adjusts the tightness of the bushing I re-installed the brass washers on the gears as well I am replacing this with the dead-centre from the spindle “New” wheel from some guy on the internet Centring the tailstock Centring the cutter Not that bad!

  1. Did you know it's finally not a 47-year wait for one of the Hand Tool Rescue wrenches? There are a few available to be shipped out this month! Have a look here: https://www.handtoolrescue.com/shop/wrenchymcwrenchface

  2. по ходу он поклонник дикой розы,мне кажется она тоже так начиналась

  3. Нормально так железку запилил…вот у кого руки растут от туда где должны!!!!!

  4. интересно, у станка изначальна была такая вибрация, что резец шатается аж ппц…..

  5. основание станка ненадежное видно вибрации невооруженным глазом

  6. Молодец бородач! Я видел долбежный станок со свастикой 1939 г.в в Сургутнефтегазе. Так мастера ему не нарадуются

  7. Шестерни без формы зуба эвольвенты, они не будут работать. Даже школьный станок по сравнению с этим крутой. Станок не был использован, а просто валялся без дела, потому что игрушка. Шестерни пресованные с алюминия, или мне показалось, крутые технологии для 40х годов.

  8. Хорошо что в конце запустили станок, а то есть мувики тоже реставрируют и не показывают как работает

  9. Painting a machine without bringing all runouts and tolerances back into factory new or better is like putting chrome hubcaps and a Corinthian leather seat on A hay bailer.

  10. На три вещи человек может смотреть вечно. Как течёт вода, горит огонь и как работают другие люди! ??

  11. man the number of parts in this thing is crazy i'm amazed how you could remember to put evrything back together, nice work brother

  12. Rewatched this after you guys talked about it on Fitz-All. Glad to know that my initial reaction of “Damn, it really is impossible to polish a turd.” was the correct one.

  13. I would never be able to keep all those little pieces straight. Taking it apart no problem. Putting it back together again would be a different story.

  14. Nossa ki legal,eu só queria estar no lugar dele,pois encontrar uma reliquia dessa é restaurala não tem preço que pague,a não ser fazer desse geito fazer uma restauração com amor parabéns

  15. разве не надо было болты крепления поворотной башки резцедержателя слегка закалить? они же после такой обработки пластилиновые стали
    и восстановление патрона не показал, а это же самое главное

  16. Out of all the videos I’ve seen on YouTube, this is my favorite. Hands down. You have a very generous fan. I hope you were able to keep this beautiful old tool. The endless hours of fun and happiness this would bring are infinite in my opinion. I need to purchase my second Hand Tool Rescue wrench. I got my first one ( on my birthday) this year. I don’t know if I’ll every use either because, they are signed, numbered. My first I cold blued it with Birchwood Super Blue, dried, wire brushed with a brass wire brush and oiled. No it’s not stored in a useable toolbox but, in a toolbox tray made from reclaimed wood on display. A conversation piece you might say. If possible, I hope you make and sell the twisted wrench. What a “ conversation piece” that would be. Lol!

  17. Если интересует реставрация, заходи на наш канал. Хорошего настроения))

  18. Ну… Номинально да, работает…)) Выглядит не плохо, блестит… Но, чисто технически, с таким биением он бы и нахер не нужен…

  19. Old, sturdy machines made of metal, it's not Chinese machines made of plastic. A pleasure to watch.(оригинальный текст:Старые , добротные станки из металла, это не китайские станки из пластика. Приятно смотреть.)

  20. Смотрю его ролики, бля где он столько старого железа находит в таком сохране?Всё разбирается почти без проблем, ни болтов ни гаек забитых и зализанных, которых кроме как высверливать вариантов бы не было, потом резьбу заново накручивать!
    У нас же блин, найти что нибудь комплектное это целая проблема, его еще попробуй восстанови, я вон сколько б/у оборудования различного не восстанавливал, один хрен, либо колхоз, либо болты забитые!

  21. The tool holder requires a crescent-shaped pad under the tool piece. By pivoting this base you can adjust the tool to center height. Like this: https://www.machine–tools.com/By-Location-/Illinois-/Lantern-rocker-tool-post-9-south-bend-lathe-img.jpg

  22. Every time I watch you, or restore someone else's old machines, I wonder how you build so complex machines with infinitely pieces after cleaning, so that no parts remain and the retreaded machine works again. Could you please answer me? great work … as always and thanks for sharing

  23. Странный станок, вот ему ровесник KELLER & DEUTSCH – posen.Изготовлен 75 лет назад https://youtu.be/lAQxHEHQ4W0

  24. best kind of restoration i've ever seen, that lathe can now go on to make all sorts of things! a new lease of life for the most versatile tool.

  25. this little lathe even has auto feed with a star wheel for thread cutting nice and you restored the thread cutting chart as well

  26. Нізачот) Нада було шліфанути направляйки в Дядько Максим 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCn-1GFkSExeLeDnY-PuAeGw

  27. Dude, you used so much maple syrup in this video I hope you posted a video on your homesteading channel about how you harvested and processed it all.

  28. Sorry for the nit-picking, you built the tail stock up in the wrong order, the grub screw goes in before the arbor it is only there to stop the arbor turning

  29. From the looks of the "quality" lacking from that lathe, it seems like Sears was to the 40's what Harbor Freight is to the 2020's. In operation it does give meaning to the comparison of a dog shitting cockleburrs…but the restoration was cool anyhow.

  30. Good job, but you should to think more not about painting but about returning of accuracy, for example, scrape all rubbing surfaces 🙂

  31. I can’t imagine how someone, after 80 years, is restoring a modern computer-controlled machine.

    Не могу представить,как кто-то ,через 80 лет,реставрирует современный станок , управляемый компьютером

  32. U shit dickhead total waste of my time dumbass video you poo Go to work in video editor than this bimbo work you allahu akbar!

  33. I had one of these little craftsman lathes and loved it. BTW, You are missing the half moon support and a tool holder for the candlestick tool support.

  34. Неплохое восстановление. Но парочки .деталей не хватает.Это сферическая чашка и сферический клин под резцом. Именно благодаря им можно выставить по центру резец. И ещё думаю . что станок более старый , эдак 20-х годов. Дело в том что я видел и даже немного проработал на подобном станке фирмы- " LE BLANT " из г Цинцинати США 1936 г. Ну так он был значительно более продвинутым . Ну а станок 40-х годов должен быть лучше чем 30-х.

  35. Assembled planetary gear headstock without bronze washers + 100 to noise reduction gear -200 to durability. Locking bolts in rotary yews heated to red – you let go of the metal… The sleeve must be deployed after pressing into the ear of the body! Any Russian Turner watched this video and cried tears!
