I set up an RSS feed for my favorite searches on craigslist...that way you get instant notification if a search finds what you are looking for.

Each search you do on CL has an RSS button at the bottom. CLick the button to add it to an RSS feed. No more remebering to search and missing stuff...it just shows up in your RSS feed.

Google Reader is a great RSS reader if you don't have one.

Warning. RSS is addictive.

Talking 1944 Cincinnati #2 Vertical

The past five months have been rather life changing. Hurricane Sandy came on shore less than 3 miles east of here.
While I only lost trees and power for 16 days, it did change my perspective on many things.

By New Years Day, the worst of over and I was back to actively scouring Craigslist. Found this one the middle of January.

It's a 1944 Cincinnati #2 Vertical Mill. Same concept as a Bridgeport, except it weighs in a +7k lbs.
Serial number 2A2V1M-10 It belonged to 1 man machine shop in Rockaway NJ. The man and his father purchased this machine from
a dealer in 1970. They added an hour meter when it was installed. It now reads 7000+ hours. That's 7k hours in 43 years, or about
1/2 hour per week. The original owner is unknown.

This machine has one 5hp motor. Later versions have two motors. I have power limitations in my shop, so the smaller motor fits
nicely. Note it also has a complete powered rotary table that works. This machine came in two flavors, medium speed and hi speed.
Mine is a medium speed. Top speed 450rpm. What am I going to do with it? Hogging and heavy gouging. It's the better alternative
to a 24inch Cincinnati Shaper.

Click on any picture…


Yes it's Hopatcong Rigging again. Different crew, same friendly service.






Can you find the 1999 Portugal ISDE Poster?

That is one hell of a machine. Good to see it saved from the scrape yards. Congrats!

Kearney Trecker 2HL Universal Horizontal Mill

K&T 2HL s/n 45-3313 Circa 1941

I met this young lady right after Christmas 2012. The next few times I saw her,
she kept whispering she wanted to go home with me.

Well the other day she showed up in the driveway and I just had to let her stay a few nights.
As much as I would like to keep her, she needs to find a good home.
Considering her age, she's quite a looker!

Went down country into South Carolina yesterday to an old textile mill town that's dying out to pick up this lathe. It was purchased from a closed mill by a former employee that retired from there, then died before restoring and using it. His son sold it to me. It's a Cincinnati. Very little info on the 'net so far, I'll run it through a couple of machine forums I'm on to see what might be known about it.

It must have been stored outside for a while, a lot of things are seized. But the spindle turns smoothly and I think it'll come back to life with some persistence. Not so shiny now but I've high hopes for a full restoration. It has no tooling with it save for a boring bar holder, but at least it's well chucked. If it doesn't work out, I can probably get my money back at the scrap yard. $650.00

You should have a good times with parts - that lathe was made for a good while, with very few major changes, and was Atlas and Craftsman branded.

I have a slightly newer, longer bed version of the same.

Did it come with all the feed change gears?

I just picked up a 618 a few months ago. Someone had unsuccessfully attempted to convert the motor to under mount. Mostly I have learned that I have a lot to learn about running a lathe.
