Antique Store Finds ~ Irwin Auger Bit Box ~ by Old Sneelock's Workshop





Persistence and a good memory. Never be afraid to ask. You must have been told no at least once in your life. The second one is easier. :-)

Antique Shop Finds





Hunting through stacks of rusty treasures can be addictive. I could quit anytime I want but I don't want to.

Cushman Chuck Disassemble & Clean









When I purchased my South Bend 9C Workshop Lathe 10 years or
so ago it came with a variety of tooling, including a 3 jaw self centering
chuck.


Unfortunately the chuck only had the external jaws. Chuck
jaws are fitted to a specific chuck during manufacture. Finding a set to fit my
chuck turned out to be difficult if not impossible.

I was able to purchase a Cushman 5” diameter 3 jaw chuck on Ebay. Little did I
know that it was workable but not right.
