I started rebuilding the lathe today. The head stock turned hard so I started there. after pulling the shaft it look like it was ran dry on the tapered Babbitt bearings. after inspection I can't see how it can hold oil on the bearings.It looks like oil gos in the top and runs out the bottom.

Are you going to stay with the flat belt drive?

some of this stuff is just runs out of a home and after calling a round it finds me. as for the lathe it was running when the guy that had it got it. then he had it in a unheated shop and was trying to run a 3 phase motor on single phase. after the head stock got tight and things started rusting it was just taking up room. so when I did a little machine job for him he offered it to me and I took it site unseen. I am still waiting for the tail stock and the 4 jaw chuck to show up. I hope shell don't call me and offer me the drill rig just south of me on the beach. I don't have room for it.

Tom, I think you should take the drill rig. Ask them about free delivery, if you have to go get it, that may be a deal breaker.

I saw all those flat spools on the main shaft of your lathe and figured it was flat belt drive. Was it originally built to use on a line shaft?

Fabber: the flats are just spacers. they don't look home made but could be a conversion. it don't look like my mojo is that strong to get that drill rig. even tho shell probably won't be drilling for a wild.

I got some more done on the lathe. the more I look at the back bearing it looks like some thing is missing to help hold the oil in. so I think I will make a brass washer to fit the hole.

I don't understand the reason for the open shaft and top brace if it's not for flat belt drive. Doesn't make sense to me. Why spacers?

Everyone of them on the factory floor in the link that Clint sent is the same way. Has to be a reason, I just don't see what it is.

The longer they let your drill sit on the rocks, the less I think you should give them for it. Maybe you should call them and tell them to hurry up or you won't take it.

I just saw this site on old lathes thought you might find it interesting. I think it shows your lathe and gives a breakdown of the head stock. I would guess that this one has been converted to vbelt but originally was driven from a line shaft with flat belts as FabberMcGee suggested. http://www.lathes.co.uk/hendey/page17.html

fabber: Here are some more pictures of the head stock the main shaft looks to be an aftermarket set up . the motor mount is home made but is using factory holes in the upper part to mount it. the cam set up used to tension the drive belt looks to be part of the lathe. the tow boat was tied up at the city dock with the harbor boys grading it so on one could get near it.

chas: I found that site even throw it is a little different set up that is were I figured I needed to build the washer for the back bearing.

one of the things I found that was different from other lathes the guards are made of two types of metals and welded together.

went to put the head stock back together just to find that the change I made on the back bearing keep me from installing it. the nut set part way in the rear bearing, so it is time to go back to the drawing board.

I decided on making a thinner nut so things would work with the washer I made. I started out making the blank for the nut. then I made a bolt to fit the nut that came off the spindle. after I thread the nut so the bolt I made would fit it. I tried it on the shaft and it was to tight. not wanting to go back and try and set it up in the lathe or make a new one. I used a 3/8-16 tap as an internal thread file. I just keep raking it threw the nut till it fit.

Good trick with the tap Tom.
I was shown a while back to use a tap like that to cut internal threads. Grind the tip away and the threads back at the shank leaving two or three threads, then use it like a boring bar, Gives a full form thread cutter.
