    Cowells CW90 vs Sherline for Watchmaking

    What problems does anyone see in using the Sherline T-Rest on their Sherline lathe? It is simialr to the one on a watchmakers lathe. No it does not offer flip over but is solid but adjustable.

    Quick Change or Piston Tool Posts for WW lathes

    I recently purchased a very nice QCTP with several holders for my Sherline lathe. It will not work on my Levin 10MM lathe since the cutter bit sets above center on the Levin. I do not think that it can be modified any to get the cutting bit low enough to work. I sure wish it would. As stated...

    Tool and Tool Parts Wanted

    I recently picked up a Levin Offset Head # 0662-03. I did find it listed in one of their catalogs under contact lens tooling. It is listed as having a male #2 B&S taper. I am looking for tooling such as a drill chuck, and other items that have a female #2 B&S Taper.

    Watch Tools Online

    Marty You mentioned searching for parts for your clock when you found watch tools on line. Just so all will know is that he does not normally sale clock or watch parts just tools. At times he may have a few parts for sale at a regional that he has got when he purchased a group of tools. Keith...

    Watch Tools Online

    Keith of Watch Tools Online is very reliable The reason he is closed is that he is moving from TN to GA. I just talked to him at the Daytona regional and he hopes to have his moved completed in the next week. He has packed all of his tools and that is the reason he is closed. Pete from Arkansas

When you reamed out your collet adapter you made it so it will accept 8mm collets. That is Sherline item 1163 I believe. I...
