    Ryan, congratulations,nice find, your going to be happy with that, the fun is putting them back together, it will only go one way, don't get big hammer that only makes things worse, the one I am getting the fellow took apart but all the pieces are there, that is good size and is much a man, turning it one thing but threading is a wonderful that you will find the most enjoyable, if you need help say so I did notice a few fellows in the tube that are restoring some, don't know if I will get into that detail did on a couple of Atlas lathe, Shaper and two mini lathes from Horrible Freight, take your time, try the pieces as you go to make sure they work, great find, Joe

    That is fantastic stuff! I'm following H80N's advice - don't want to count on it always being there.

    No kidding!! Holy smokes, I'm gonna be reading lathe stuff until my eyes bleed!<br />

    I moved her to her final duty station earlier today, now just have to run power over there. But I need to run fresh power for helga, so I'll kill two machines with one monkey wrench. <br />
    <br />
    My experience on a lathe is limited to what little I've done on my super cute little craftsman 109. I'm ready to learn and I have some projects. Had a buddy come over earlier and tell me he has some stuff for me to do too. That just helps me gain experience. <br />

    You guys could still come here for a lathe putting back together party ya know....

    The book is the key. National Geographic quality paper cover and photos, with quality paper inside. This guy has obviously "been there"; his hints and methods are excellent. Worth every penny.

    There are several on eBay. The one I have is from the 1940's I think. There are also some current copies there, also by O'Brien like the originals, but not sure of their content. I'd go for the older ones unless someone has one and can vouch for the content. Not near my copy now, but I think there are pictures of your lathe in there.

    I bought a rebuild book from a guy on eBay, stevewb, for my SB Model A. It is SUPERB! Great pictures and hints on what (and more importantly, what not) to do. He also has one for a 13" SB, which looks like it may be yours.

    Enjoy your new project!

    That's pretty cool. My first HAM radio was a 50something model HeathKit, unopened, that I found at a garage sale when I was in high school. Had the transmitter and receiver. Pretty fun to put it together and then use it. <br />

    I also have a mill that doesn't exist but there are flyers of them in the 30's. They were a kit and you made them to suit. A company sold the castings and you did the rest...Bob

    I was watching a video last night from mrpete222 on the YouTube on how to take apart the apron for cleaning. He was taking one apart from a 9", so I figure mine is probably similar at least, and since it's off, may as well clean it up. <br />
    <br />
    The quick change gear box is pretty dirty too. Plus I have to figure out how all that stuff fits together.

    I bought the card for my 1919. Not much there at that time. Just some scribble in a ledger. Mine went to a Buckeye Automotive which no one knows for sure where it was. The internet is confusing Buckeye Automotive (Indiana) and Buckeye Engine (Salem Ohio) as one company. But my card for my 1941 tells me my lathe was running 24 hours a day making small parts for the war effort from GE of Ft Wayne Id for the US Navy. My 1974 was just bought sans motor for a company in upstate NY. My drill press came from Ted out of the SB plant. And my shaper doesn't exist according to the experts. So at one time before Grizzly bought SBL the cards were free. Now Papa charges 25 bucks...Bob
