I got some good stuff last weekend at an auction. Spent a total of $2395 on a Hembrug lathe, Walker Turner 14" wood and metal band saw, a homemade Arbor press, Small drill press, Toolpost grinder, and a ton of tooling.

As I sort through it all, I'll be posting some "what is this" post.

Enjoy the pics.

I downloaded a manual for the Hembrug DR1 pretty close but not exactly the same. This control is differnent than the manual. I think it's Low speed to the left, High speed to the right, Up for forward Down for reverse. If anyone knows please reply!!

Your WT bandsaw appears to be virtually identical to my Rockwell wood/metal saw. In both cases they are good machines.

Not familiar with a Hembrug lathe, but it looks solid. Where & when was it built?

BTW, I think you did well for the $.

Dr Stan --

Hembrug lathes were made in Holland. I haven't found the manufacture date but I think it's 1950's or earlier.

Here's a link with a better description: http://www.lathes.co.uk/hembrug/

Mine 10.5" swing and 30" Center to Center.

This beats my auction gloat! Looks like you got more than your money's worth, and then some more after that. Good for you , lots of nice bits and tools too.

Were you the only one at the auction?

Nice bunch of equipment Hawkeye, you weren't exaggerating when you said a ton of tooling.

fishfrnzy,

If I was the only one at the auction, I would of had a lot more to show for it...

The Auction started @ 9:00 Am . I bought the lathe and tooling (they kept it all together!!! sold as one item) @ about 9:00 PM. and the Bandsaw at 10:00 pm.

Just need to be willing to wait!

Wow! That's a ton of tooling etc. You sure did get your money's worth. Congrats.

I am amused by the lathe with the controls labeled in Klingon. :) An American acquaintance remarked after spending a year in the Netherlands: "Dutch is the language Klingons speak". Rather fitting, then, that the first full length Klingon opera was performed there. Of course, the French might make a similar comment about English.

You don't really need a translator for the speeds/directions - the lathe will tell you. Now, trying to figure out the threading on a Monarch 10EE if you couldn't read the controlls, that would be a bit of a challenge (there are an unusual number of knobs and levers to be set). My old lathe, incidentally, has no markings on any of the controls.

You sure got a boatload of tooling.

That is one fantastic haul! Looks like a high-quality lathe and the tooling is what really makes it a bargain. You could spend years hunting around and never come up with a collection like that for that kind of money.

Congrats, great buy.

That is an atlas 10-12" milling attachment. Common to be retrofitted to other lathes. Ebay value $200-250.

Nice collection of tools and machines! You like the arbor press, they are very handy!

Whitis,

From online translators,I've confirmed that LAAG = Low, and HOOG = High,

Still not sure what the 'L' and 'R' stand for.

Glad you mentioned threading... I don't have a threading dial, How do you cut threads without one? Anyone have one laying around?

Two guesses on the "L" and "R". Probably either forward and reverse, or for two speeds within the high and low ranges.

A threading dial should not be too difficult to modify/construct. What is the TPI of the lead screw? If it is the same as a SB I'd check with Little Machine Shop for the SB thread dial and use it. I'd also check to see if a Logan thread dial would fit.

The other option is to engage the half-nuts and reverse the lathe at the end of each pass never disengaging them until you are finished. Just like metric threading on a lathe with an imperial lead screw. A bit of a PITA but it works.

Would L and R be left and right?
Nice haul.
Have fun

good deal, difficult to explain to her indoors, no threading dial, a bit of chalk works!

Bobslad,

Can you explain how to use a piece of chalk for threading?

thanks,
