  • How many things can be done wrong?

    but look under the stairs at about 32:00...... if you can't stand the rest of it.

    Haven't watched all of it yet. Just the breaking down of all the parts. The use of the planetary gearing for the back gear was highly interesting.

    A few things I might or might not have done different to what he did. I try not to use much force on punches if I can avoid it. But if it only took fairly moderate love taps to push things apart I'd likely have done just what he did. Once things are burred like I saw and one cannot get a press or bearing puller into play there's not much else to be done.

        I watched about 5 minutes, and then from 28:00 to the end. Didn't see any glaring wrongs, and I couldn't see anything odd under the stairs. Seemed like a pretty good job, although the guy is goofy

          Are you referring to the metal planer / shaper ?

            Good eye, I didn't watch that one all the way through, soon as I saw which lathe he was rebuilding I clicked off. That is the wrong model Atlas/Craftsman lathe to spend time rebuilding IMO.
            I just need one more tool,just one!

              Perhaps not the best lathe ever. But some folks just like fixing stuff like this. And if I came across one I think I'd do it up about the same and see how it worked out of a sense of history and a sense of curiosity to see what it's strong and weak.... er…. weak and weaker points were.

              Anyway you cut it I'd say it's likely to be no worse than a Unimat SL. I had the dubious pleasure of running one for a few small pieces. And it was a dubious treat at best in terms of working any sort of steel items.

                Yeah, the planer

                Th error just before that is the locking screw on the back gear plunger. AFAIR that is supposed to have a spring and ball latch, which is why there are indents on the shaft of the plunger. I had one of those useless machines a long time ago. I actually got work out of it, and a POS like that is really good for learning how to work with less than perfect machines.

                The biggest mistake of all is messing with one of those to begin with, but they have sold for up to $600, which is as much as I paid for a good Logan, which is actually a useful machine. But there were all sorts of small things dotted through the video that I spotted. I was just waiting for a phone call, did not want to get into anything in the shop, basically wasting time.

                  I read the title and the first thing i thought was "everything you can think of, plus several things you cant, when presented with a sufficiently motivated idiot". Working facilities maintenance has jaded me somewhat...

                    Anyone got a youtube account that could just put up a comment to say forget the lathe crap and put up some pictures of the planer. Plus ask him no to try to 'restore' it.

                      My thoughts exactly! Someone rescue the planer, quick!

                        Why not just E mail the fellow and give a few hints.? Have none of you EVER done anything which you later found could have been done better.

                          Instead of BITCHING ? We're old people, that's what we do. We bitch when someone's tools are newer than ours. We bitch when the tools are older than ours. We bitch when they paid more and we bitch when they paid less. Especially less. Look through the threads. We're old people.

                          I tried to mention something to somebody once. I thought I was kind as well as concerned. I got my UgotTubed account deleted.

                            I have messed up more than you can think of.... One biggie was buying one of those AA / 109 things.... although I DID double my money when I sold it. I already 'fessed up to that, and I suspect others could as well.

                            The issue with that guy is that the information needed to avoid screwups is on-line, for free. Manuals are available on-line, with parts breakdowns that would show everything. It's not hard, the guy knows how to use the internet. At least the Trabant repair guy has found manuals for what he works on. I can respect that.

                            Seriously, do you just tear into stuff without bothering to see if any info is on-line? EDIT: And do you then assume that whatever is being used in the machine now is the correct part for function? I sure do not, I nearly always find some "Bubba repair" that needs to be brought back to standard in order for things to work right.

                            OK, it's just "entertainment", but for sure, it is leading people astray when no particular attempt is made to fix what's wrong...... No wonder we see so many "rustoleum overhauls" for sale.

                            it's not that important to me, I would never have mentioned it here, except for that planer, that someone needs to save from "well-meaning destruction". I thought that nice small planer was worth a mention.

                              If this is true then why did you not title the thread "neat planer" instead of going for drama raising leadin you did?
