One of the projects I've been working on lately is cleaning up my old Rockwell 46-111 lathe. Broke it all down to clean and paint and broke it! Well kinda maybe..... I had what sounded like a bearing making a noise on high speed so I figured I'd install some new ones while it was apart. Found out the pulley had two set screws. One loose and one missing. It had allowed the pulley to get messed up and I couldn't get it off the shaft but did succeed in rounding the incorporated nut on the end of the step pulley. Well step in Tony B. to the rescue! He had me box it up and ship it over to Honolulu to have a look see. Got the head stock fixed up in no time a shipped back over to the big island. Today I finally got it all back together and not only looks mighty purdy but runs smooth and quiet! Big Mahalo to you Tony!!
I do have one question. How do you go about setting the height of the machine for good working comfort? I thought I heard something about where your elbow is in relation to the center of the headstock, but don't remember.
I'll try to get the photos posted tonight when I get through our here in the shop.
