i would bet a small block would make her spin. i only say that somewhat in jest as i am sure it was set up to run on a line shaft.

yes I am sure it was. thought has been given to puting it outside under a covered roof and using a horizontal shaft gas powered engine on it.

I am afraid I cant compete with any of the above being somewhat of a novice to machine shop work but you got to start small,
About 18 months ago I bought this Myford ML7 off eBay to learn about lathes



I took it to bits and restored it to this



but then I saw a Myford Super 7 with variable speed control, so I sold the ML7 and bought this



but then like London buses you wait for ever for one and then three come along together so in the end I am now left with these

.


I didnt get around to doing much last year so they are still ongoing projects but once a few other to do items are finished I will make up a "keeper" with the best of the bits and sell the rest on.

You "compete" very well with those great machine tools. Myfords are legendary (even on this side of the Atlantic) and you seem to have aquired one of the most sought after models; the Super 7 with vari-speed. Well done Dave!!!  thumbsup2

Has never really bugged me, I have seen them thrown out at least 10+ times and they have never really sailed across the room like the old wives (toolmakers) tales say. They usually just float up in a nice soft arc and fall, as a matter of fact I actually caught one in the air that someone else threw.

Now you really want to make us machinist's cringe just leave an Interapid indicator in the drill chuck of a boring mill after zeroing a part out and set er spinnin. I've seen one of those break apart when it hit a 25 foot high ceiling.  SHF

Aside from the risk of the key flying out you've also got the chance it won't fly out and hit the bed instead on a lot of lathes damaging the machine and possibly the operator.

I would agree. I just noticed the vise is not an Atlas, perhaps a Southbend?

We had a couple shapers in my machine shop class when I was in High School.  Once a year we (the students) had something we called "The Rodeo".  Basically, when the teacher left the classroom we would all take turns riding the shaper at succesively higher strokes per minute until you couldn't stay on for the eight second timeframe.  th-spit

It's really amazing that I survived my teenage years...  scratchhead
