Owens Corning makes a kit. I imagine if you cant get it locally you should be able to order it online.

All it needs now is an R1200RT but the nearest dealer is 6 hours one way.

My available floor space went down a little Weds. evening when I brought this puppy home:


It's a South Bend 10L Heavy w/3' bed build in 1945. Needs a little clean up done and the wicks probably replaced, but it runs nice and smooth.

Now, if I can just find a decent mill like the one missed by 15 minutes a couple weeks ago (Clausing 8520 Vertical Knee Mill):


I'll be a happy camper.

2T overhead trolly lift to cover the width of the garage going in next week. I've grown a fondness for working with steel.

Nice! Level it if you haven't already. You'll get straighter parts that way.

It's still sitting the carriers i made for transport, and moving around the garage while I'm still doing internal "construction" stuff Once done with that (are we ever done?), I'll figure out its final resting place and set it up proper. Right now it'll get covered with a large BBQ grill cover to help protect it from all the other goings on.

I sent off to South Bend (Grizzley) for the Serial Number Card so I can try to get a little history on the thing. I do know it's a war time lathe built between Sept. and Oct. 1945 and has a "Conforms to Orders by the War Production Board" metal tag affixed to it. It's just about a year and a half younger than I am, so that got my interest up.

Hey Guy,

If that's a vintage lathe, and it's younger than you.... what does that make you?




The metal tag just adds to the awesomeness of that piece. Nice find!

Saaay. Aren't you supposed to be in church, or sumthin'.

Wise acre.........

Yeah, that makes me 67. Not sure if that's a good thing, or a bad thing. Nothing I can do about it tho'.

Found it within 5 miles from where I work (near Nabisco), so it was pretty convenient.

On a different note, what generator isn't working. Haven't been back to chatter so you may have answered already.

Here's for a good Service today!!

I have worked in so many tiny garages for years, it is definitely amazing to have so much space..

Newest addition to the garage. Seeing as I'm in Utah and kegs can't be purchased for private use I have to order through the base which is 3-5 days for delivery. I have two quarter kegs on order. The other alternative is to drive to Evanston, WY.
