Topic tags/keywords: question

I recently picked up 5 boxes of parts that seem to be for wood turning but I don’t know what machine they are from or in the case of some of the parts, what their planned use is?

Any ideas?
Thanks, Jim

Looks like a banjo extension:

One has a #2 morse taper and the other is straight

These are chuck- each has a different thread but they seem to be short of enough jaws.

I don’t know what all these rings mount on?

Second item from the top is a tail stock from an old tube lathe. The rest I don’t know

Yup, craftsman tube type tail stock. The tool rest extension (CWL-43) is from a delta lathe w/1” post. Collets can be for any number of lathes. Looks like a mix of stuff from a bunch of different lathes.

Cheers,
Brad

First one might be a drill support for a long bit.

Jim the top item looks like it is for drilling a hole sort of like the One Way Drill Wizard, but that is just a wild guess. The chuck with a square receiver might be for production work in which you take a square piece of wood and place it into the chuck. I seem to remember something similar used an an automatic or copier lathe. The guy was making fishing lures but that was back around 1980. The rings almost look like a system where you screw the ring to a block of wood and the ring fits into a special chuck again for production work. Just giving you my best guesses…maybe worth the price of admission.

Edit: look up Nova 6001 chuck faceplate ring…looks very similar

My WAGs
1/2 Agree probably for a drill. Maybe when drilling using the spindle index.
3/4 Yep, tailstock. Sears, Jet, many others.
5/6 WAG Tool holder for the banjo when hollowing deep (over 4 inches).
7/8 Collets. Can’t tell the size. May be for a collet chuck or for a router.
9 Tool rest
10/11 Tool rest extension. Delta, Shopsmith, ...
12/13 Have seen them in a video (UK). For specific items such as hair sticks or maybe for knitting/sewing… Can’t remember now. Should have a MT.
14 No idea on the chuck but looks familiar. Maybe for the early 80’s video by Del Stubbs.
15/16 Maybe faceplates to fit item 14?

Pics 10-11. I had one of these I bought from e-bay and used it as an extension on my old lathe. Sold it as a package deal along with the old lathe.

Bottom pics are rings that you screw onto your wood as a face plate. Then it receives the chuck jaws as if you are using a chuck in a recess.

Jim, whatever they are I would suggest don’t throw them away as you may just find a use for them in the next 40 years or so. LOL

Pics in 7 & 8 definitely look like collets. They may be collets that are used on a vertical mill.

Thank you all for the input.

Hi Tony, I don’t intend to keep them but maybe sell them off so I don’t have more stock of things I’ll never use!!

The first one says pens plus on the casting.

It sure is a mix of parts. The size of this stuff in the photo is deceiving. The collets are 1” and 1 1/2” but they must have to go in some kind of holder that is not with this grouping. Maybe someone will know what they are if I put them on E bay.

Hi Lee, you are right. I think one of these goes in the Morse taper in the head stock and the other goes in a chuck in the tail stops and you can put square sticks in them- possible making knitting needles!

Hi MRG. I did find one of these screwed to a wooden faceplate but I don’t see how jaws can be use with it because there is nothing to tighten them with. The jaws are in one of the chucks and possibly they all fit the chucks.I’ll have to spend some time testing that out and then I might keep them for 40 yrs like Tony says!!

Cheers, Jim
