    Ahh, found it. I've contacted him for the couple remaining things I'm looking for. Craig

    WTB: Atlas 10-F lathe Hor. Countershaft Assy

    Many thanks to TOBARApprentice, I now have virtually the parts I need to get the lathe running again. Incredibly generous both with the parts and showing me around his awesome, albeit tiny, shop. BTW, we were talking about the 9-109 needle bearings in the countershaft. I stopped in at my...

    WTB: Atlas 10-F lathe Hor. Countershaft Assy

    Thanks but he believes the parts are for a 6 inch Atlas (I'm fixing a 10"). Too bad he only has a bit of the taper attachment. Craig

    WTB: Atlas 10-F lathe Hor. Countershaft Assy

    I don't weld so that would make it tougher. Not sure how easy it would be to get the matching 4-step pulley opposite the one in the headstock. Also, the mechanism to engage/disengage the belts would be a tad tricky to get right. Other than that, piece of cake! ;) Craig

    WTB: Atlas 10-F lathe Hor. Countershaft Assy

    Hi: I've just acquired an Atlas 10 inch metal lathe but it is missing the countershaft assembly. It is a model TH-54 so I understand it requires the horizontal style countershaft assembly, like this: As well, I would need a motor pulley (10-428 with either 1/2" or 5/8" bore), and both of...

    Anyone using coal in Calgary?

    My buddy was one that ordered from Home Hardware. He said that you just need to get the local store to call the head office. He believes they are still ready and willing to sell bags of coal. BTW, I asked about lighting the forge. He starts a small charcoal fire in the forge and uses that to...

    Overly complicated vise stop

    A picture is worth a thousand words--I wasn't really getting it from your description. BTW, your photos are really good! Craig

    Anyone using coal in Calgary?

    It was many years ago, and not in Calgary, but a buddy of mine was able to order coal through Home Hardware! They shipped it to the local store and he picked up from there. I think he got a 40 kg bag and is still working on it. Craig

    Group Sourcing Metal Ideas

    This probably explains why there are no prices on their online site. Calgary can charge whatever they want since it can't be compared to a national price on the web site. It might be interesting for a few of us to ask for an online quote for the same items. Just ordering from different areas...

    Where to source miscellaneous small hardware?

    The one on Amazon would be good if it just had the smaller sizes. I had not seen the one from England. Note that they're charging 2.29 pound sterling for EACH key. Plus 4.00 pounds for shipping. If I was stuck, I might use that but I'm good for now. Thanks for looking for me. Craig

    Group Sourcing Metal Ideas

    Yikes! YIKES. Yeah, you are getting a completely different experience at that store than I am here. There are quite a few metal sources in the greater Toronto area so nobody can get that far out of whack. Your story about the aluminum is completely the opposite of mine. Recently, I grabbed...

    Group Sourcing Metal Ideas

    I've chatted with the guys at the local Metal Supermarket a couple of times. They didn't say exactly, but I think they have relatively high "retail" prices. Ie if you drop by and purchase one or two pieces, they'll charge you the price on the computer. BUT, it was clear that they have regular...

    Where to source miscellaneous small hardware?

    Thanks but I did find that page. They don't show a price on anything and even the 25 quantity of the individual #1 size is overkill. As you said, they apparently will sell onesy-twosey at the counter. I would like to find an assortment pack but it is not a critical need right now since I...

    Where to source miscellaneous small hardware?

    No joy on eBay, either. First, a tonne of listings are for metric-sized Woodruff but they don't say that in the title. You have to open the listing to find out. Then, virtually all the Imperial-sized assortments exclude the Woodruff #1 (ANSI 204). I found one listing for a vintage assortment...

    Where to source miscellaneous small hardware?

    I got lucky on the Woodruff. Ted's Bearing in Oakville just gave me one! I was getting a belt and asked if they knew where I could find one locally. He routed around a little and found an old container with an assortment of sizes and said "help yourself"! I'm going to have to make a field...

    Where to source miscellaneous small hardware?

    What is your go-to source for odd bits of hardware? Today I need a single #1 Woodruff key. Tomorrow it might be a specific size of tapered pin. After that, maybe a certain E-clip, or ... Oh, and without spending a fortune. The local Brafasco has a minimum purchase; think it is $15. The...

    Cheap lathe tooling

    I bought a couple of box lost at an auction recently (spent too much) and some of the pieces will never fit my tiny Atlas 618 lathe. I'd like to move them along to a deserving home. Any piece: $5. Pickup in Oakville, ON or mailing at cost. Cash or Interac. Boring related, see notes in the...

    ROUGHING END MILLS

    I keep telling her, call my friend Darrell. He gets the tool that I 'stole' from all the other guys at the auction...yes he knows exactly what I'm talking about. He gets the tool if he helps organize the sale! Craig It's a woodworking tool, a shoulder plane. There was a row of them for sale...
