    There are some parts I have been looking for for decades to complete my lathe sets (Lorch, Schmidt & Co. and Wolf, Jahn & Co.):

    - A 90° steady for D-bed lathes (I only ever saw one on ebay and didn't get it):
    LS-58c.jpg

    - A collet-holding screw-tailstock for WW-lathes

    - A rotating head-stock for WW-lathes

    - A set of or individual wheel-chucks for a WW-lathe:

    Looking for a Jig Bore

    I'm looking for a Jig Bore. I prefer a Hauser M1, 2A3, or 2BA. I'm open to other models if comparable.

    Thanks!

    K&D Inverto 17 Anvil Plate wanted

    I'm looking for the anvil plate ONLY for a K&D Inverto 17 staking tool. The anvil plate I currently have my Inverto 17 seems not to be original, because there are holes spread over the plate, that some of the holes don't line up to the arm and there is no hole large enough to accept a stake in the inverted position. I am not too fussy on condition of the plate so long as it is serviceable.

    I am looking for collets for this lathe: Massachusetts Lathe The collets differ from most lathe collets in that the draw bar has external threads and the collet has internal threads.

    I am looking for a watchmakers' lathe countershaft similar to one of these. It needs to be fully functional but not necessarily pristine (I want to use it). Thanks.

    I didn't get around to set up the 6 mm with this 90° tailstock, but here are a couple of (edited) picture from the auction:

    Lorch-58e-1-72.jpg

    Lorch-58e-2-72.jpg

    The tailstock has the same taper as the other tailstocks. I am not sure why the inclined face of the insert faces upward in all old catalogue pictures, as the pressure from the tool would deflect the part upward and, therefore, the inclined face should face downward. However, the face has a slight V-groove milled in and perhaps that is sufficient to prevent the deflection of very delicate parts. I will have to experiment with it and make a few inserts myself.

    Hi wefalck,

    Surely it would be the right way up if mounted behind the bed, as the pictures suggest it was?

    Regards,

    When the tool is set at centre-height or a tad below, as is common, the workpiece will be deflected upwards by the tool-pressure. Hence, a steady should act to keep the work-piece down. Also, if the face is up, the lower edge would interfere with the cutting tool.

    I'm looking for a set of 8mm lathe collets, I'm not particular about the specific maker as long as they all match. Ideally a set of 50+. Thanks!

    G'day Wefalk,
    I know it's been a while since you posted, and you might have it all sussed out by now, but I was wondering if the upward facing bevel is because the friction from the rotation of the work-piece will make it try to 'drive' down the surface of the steady, and therefore move the work-piece towards the cutter slightly, which is pushing back the other way slightly, and so cancel each other out?
    Just thinking about the physics of it all and I may be completely wrong, but the 'old guys' knew what they were doing, and it's something I have to remind myself of regularly, when reading antique shoemaking books, when something seems odd to give the old way a try, and I often have an 'Ah Ha' moment :)
    Cheers
    Duncan

    Only saw your comment today. In a way you may be right. And yes, these designs were based on experience, not on theoretical engineering considerations. I haven't used this implement yet in anger in order to be able to comment with my own experience.
    I gather, the cutter must be very precisely at centre-height, as the downward forces from the friction cannot be very heigh - if the cutter was only a tad below centre-height, there is a tendency for the work-piece to jump up and over the cutting edge, particularly with softer materials (which is a practical experience I had many times).

    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.
