  • Leadscrew replacement for Clausing 8520 mill

    I've been restoring a 1961 Clausing mill. I posted some stuff in Clausing Yahoo Group, but thought this might be of use to someone.

    Dave, a nice job on the pictures and the write up! Did you consider sending it in for publication.
    It's good to see others using their equipment to repair other machines. I think that in over 50 years, excluding ball bearings, I have only ordered one part from the manufcturer. My latest was a new saddle for a 10" Rockwell lathe.
    Keep up the good work. John

        Very nice work on the job and the photos. I replaced the screw and nut on my b'port but it wasn't half as difficult as your job.
        Again very nice work worthy of publication.
