Topic tags/keywords: 10106242 wood lathe restoration oneway talon

Hi,

I had in the past asked members for information regarding their lathes and used some of the information to restore an old lathe.

So the project is finished and thanks!

The clicking noise is a bad bearing that does not fit the lathe.

Nicely done and I like the color. Did you replace the bushings with roller bearings? Also, how do you like that round drive belt? I’ve seen those before but if memory serves they were expensive so I went with a standard V belt on mine.

Hi, thanks guys.
I replaced the bushings with new ones but not with roller bearings. I am not sure if that possible, is it?

The color is RAL 5015.
The belt is 1/4” and was not expansive but not simple to weld. It is very quiet and easy to stretch onto the pulley.

Don’t know but it’s an interesting idea. I have a Goodell Pratt with bushings and it has been in the back of my mind to find out if they can be swapped for roller bearings.

just recently picked up one of these old Dunlap/Sears lathes. Do you have other pictures of the lathe throughout the process? How hard was it to find parts? The one I have is missing a couple things…

Depends on what’s missing. Ebay is unfortunately, your best bet. Everything you need will probably be on there and each part will cost as much as your lathe.

Hi

I have no images that I can find. If I find then I will post them.
I think you are going to find most parts are ok just clean and grease the ones in the tailstock and it will be like new.
Take the headstock apart: Release the spindle lock ring with the left hand thread – left side and right hand thread on the right side and release the lock screw in one the pulley.
If the oilite bushings are good the spindle will have no play if pulled up and down. If it moves, then these are not expensive on ebay just make sure you order the correct ones. There are the two thrust bearings you need to inspect and see if they are original and in good shape.
More than that it cleaning, paint/rust removal and finish are more matters of cosmetics.

When refitting the spindle after making sure there is no or almost no play. Start with the lock ring on the right it is a good idea to secure it as strong as you can and add strong locktite. Do it before fitting the spindle. Then take it through a metal lathe to face the shoulder that supports the headstock. This is the most important tip to make this lathe as accurate as it can be.

According to the parts list in the manual, the only bearing on that lathe is a thrust bearing (PN# L2-20)... the spindle rides in bushings (PN# L2-14). The bushing size isn’t specified, but it should be pretty standard. They are a PITA to replace though, so hopefully yours are still in good shape. For the thrust bearing, you may be able to clean and re-pack it yourself if it’s not too worn out. If it needs to be replaced, the VM Wiki has this about the bearing:

Original Thrust Bearing: SKF 465233 (ID: 1-7/16”, OD: 7/8”, W: 13/32”); Atlas part number- L2-20
(Although, I think the OD and ID above are reversed)

I know you can get needle thrust bearings in that ID/OD (but thinner), so you should be able to find ball thrust bearing as well.

Cheers,
Brad

I just bought one of these. Thanks for the post.

Where did you get the rubber belt for this?

I’ve got a number of tools that could benefit from these types of belts.

thanks

Chris

I am not sure I understood.

I used heat to weld it and made the needed size.

Okay, so you got raw stock and made your own.

thanks
