  • The Monarch may run yet

    Hello all,
    Well I finally saved up enough and got a VFD and a tool post ordered for my Monarch 16C today. So hopefully by next week or so depending on my energy level I will have it running and post some pics of chips.

    Cheers, Jay

    WOW! Jay that's cool, I think I want to see that lathe run almost as bad as you do.
    I was talking to my daughter today, telling her that we was going to try and get your line shaft up and running and she is mailing me a PLS Laser PLS3 Self Leveling Laser Tool which should help us line up all those pesky pulleys and shafts.

      Mel,
      I am starting to enlist help. I haven't gone formal yet as I don't have a time frame, but figured we could do an Amish style lineshaft raising party and have some fun.

          When I got most of the shafting it was being powered by about a 1930's or so 3 hp single ph. motor. It seemed to do pretty good running the shop it was in. Course if a guy had the time and inkling some kind of a throttled hit and miss would be pretty neat. I have some checking to do on the Monarch before I get to excited but its good to know that it won't be long now. Thanks for the help on my TP decision, it aught to work fine.
