I bought 2 boxes of pillow blocks today just because the price was right. I
found what looks like a set of lathe change gears in the box. they are
smaller than the gears used on a south bend 9" everyone is marked with the #
of teeth and "M6" any ideas? maybe an atlas 6"??? I did see an atlas TS in
his piles of stuff he is selling. The man is 80 years old and still sharp.
LOTS of stuff he is cleaning out.
And they self-disintegrate over the years too. My father-in-law had 2 Atlas
6" lathes. The first one he junked (by tossing it down behind his workbench)
because of the "rotting back gears" problem.
Sounds like the gears they have the 2 keyway slots, they don't look to be
used much. Well if they are atlas gears it looks like the pillow blocks will
be free:) I am sure they will get $50 for the set. Now what to do with the
40 or so pillow blocks and misc bearings????
Things are busy here. Actually just got a pretty nifty score, but I'll post
about that in another thread.
What's the inside diameter on those gears? I assume they're for a 6" lathe,
since the 10" gears I have (oops) don't say M6.
