    Are you using stones to deburr the gears?

    Four days of work restoring this 350mm diameter four jaw chuck. Chemical cleaned. All surfaces have been lightly stoned and a full de burr .the jaws have had a de burr. The jaws have been re seated to the matching ways...this one will be for sale in the for sale section shortly. 20200514_084217.jpg 20200514_084509.jpg 20200517_111832.jpg 20200517_122616.jpg 20200517_161847.jpg 20200517_161933.jpg 20200517_162053.jpg

    Beautifully done.

    Satisfy my curiosity please, what are the four other slots between the jaws for?

    Look slotted, but only go half way to the centre.

    I saw the Pratt & Whitney on ebay and sent the seller a message about delivery but couldn't arrange anything. I was surprised at the original equipment that was with it. The lathe didn't look as if it had much use, A real class machine, I'm pleased it went to someone who will appreciate it's quality.

    It's in good condition given its age. There is wear on the bed but have seen a lot worse. She is a big lump and look forward to restorations.

    You get huge respect from me. And not purely owing to your obvious technical knowledge and skill. A large part of it is due to the fact that you horse those leviathan machines about in what is clearly a bog standard residential setting.

    I still have nightmares about getting my Harrison Mill over my gravel drive and into my shop.
