    Do you like Naptha or Paint thinner (mineral spirits) for cleaning?
    Or are they so close to the same thing that it does not matter ? ?

        I use Naphtha a lot, I have it in WD40 reusable spray bottles and in a Milwaukee ShureShot sprayer. I only use mineral spirits when I have to as it really smells bad to me. Naphtha is very low odor and leaves no residue. I believe it was the original dry cleaning fluid. Mineral spirits are used in a lot of parts cleaners and in mine as well. I've recommended it to many friends who now use it all the time as well. As they say "try it, you'll like it"

          Started to open up the sump under the tailstock. I really wasn't very well prepared for the mess that occurred. The first problem was the drain plug was so corroded that the Allen wrench broke through and the cutting oil started to drain with the remainder of the plug inside. I finally got a larger drain pan under it but oil always goes where it wants. There was so much swarf inside that I had to constantly pull it out with a hook tool to keep it flowing. About 2 gallons of the stuff drained before it started to slow down.

          The brown drain pan in the pic was almost 3/4 full before I got the larger pan under the machine. I'm going to remove the larger plate and the one on the other side and flush it out with mineral spirits. I hope this is the last of the really ugly dirty jobs cleaning up this machine!

            Why am I not surprised with what's behind door #1

            Actually I don't really understand the logic for this sump setup. There is no screen to keep the swarf from entering this sump from the chip tray, and no recirculating pump in the cavity.
            There was at least 20 lbs of swarf and close to 3 gals of oil in this cavity and who knows for how long.
            I'm not sure how to deal with this when it's cleaned up for the future use. I may just close up the top chip tray entrance, because I certainly don't want to clean this out again!

                Finally got the sump cleaned up and plate reinstalled. I decided to close up the top with a thin 14ga circular cap that fits flush into the intake on the chip pan.

                I also pulled out all the electrical components. I was surprised how much conduit, junction boxes, control and disconnect components were actually on the machine. I plan to use the old switch with the low voltage VFD controls and put a speed control potentiometer on it as well. I'm giving the magnetic control to the guy I purchased the lathe from as he has the same machine and his has problems reversing with his controller.

                Did some more paint removal in the last two days. The cheap Harbor Freight needle scaler has really gotten a workout, but it's certainly an effective, fast and dry paint removal method. I will have to go over all of it with a coarse wire wheel on an angle grinder before I start any bondo and primer.

                Getting close to removing the apron and carriage off the machine and cleaning it up. I picked up a cheap engine stand that I'm going to modify to hold the apron. I also picked up a small scissor jack to hold the apron up off the carriage for removal and installation. We'll see how well that works!

                The apron, carriage and taper attachment are the last big projects.

                  Got a few more larger components painted or ready for paint, including the motor.

                    I like the color, I think it’s going to look awesome when it’s done.

                        I wasn't happy with the lifting method on the lathe when I put it in the garage. The seller loaded it on his trailer with his fork lift and I used the same lifting strap to off load it as well. I just didn't like lifting it with the headstock collar. Although is was the perfect balancing point for a single point lift.

                        I decided to fab out a lifting fixture that would be under the main casting and clear of all the shift rods and lead screw issues. I built it out of 1/4" 2x2 rectangular tubing and positioned it low enough to clear the lower shift rod and outboard enough to be away from the leadscrew. It's actually on the same balance point as before. I tapped two 1/4-20 holes to hold the bracket in place. Hopefully when I move into my shop this will work better.

                          Just be careful when you lift it, you now have quite a bit of weight over top the lifting points where before on the spindle, most of it was under.

                            I think it will work good either way. I probably wouldn't have built that until I needed to move it again, but I applaud you for having it before you need it.

                              I pulled off the tail stock, cleaned and painted all the components and set it off for the paint to harden. Also had pretty bad gallling in the tail stock spindle taper. I used a set of MT3 reamers to clean up the taper as much as I could. I'll see how it holds when it's up and running.

                              Next is the apron.

                                Any filler on that tailstock?
