    When I pulled the counter shaft assembly apart both bushed appeared tight until I pulled it apart.

    I soaked these counter shaft bearings in degreaser then blasted it with a 3500 psi gurni, I found this , makes me think the bearings will be just as bad.

    There are some parts the repeated soaking in degreaser and the gurney would not remove the baked on dirt and grease.

    Sorry about the rust, I had it stored on the veranda, last weekend we had our first rain in over two years.

    Whats your recommendations for painting preparation?
    Unfortunately the photo doesn't show it but after scrubbing on of the bearings, in degreaser and detergent the buggered one, it still felt oily and water beaded on like on oily surface.

    Was wondering if electrolysis would work?

    They used to use Knifing putty before painting in the body shop where I worked.

    To whet your appetite I am selling many accessories some with the original packing grease on them ,a short list INDEXING turret TOOL HOLDER,DRIP CAN,sTATIONARY STEADY,MICROMETER SADDLE STOP,COUPLE OF CHUCKS,SET OF IMPERIAL COLLETS C/W HANDWHEEL DRAW IN COLLET ATTACHMENT,TAPER TURNING ATTACHMENT,MILLING ATTACHMENT, The idea is to sell these and other items and the lathe at another time. Full up with tasks following the hail damage recently,got the trailer ready together with the special towbar for my old Mercedes to enable me to clear out sheds by the dozen and accumulations of too many years. I will post pics of items when I can.I have a spare parts manual I will scan as you start on the different parts of your lathe,each section. This and the Hercus Text Book will go with the lathe.David Lim was to purchase everything but changed direction so the extras are still out of boxes etc.The first scan will be Tail Stock all models I figure having the proper name for the parts will help you in finding them.Also a copy of the inspection Record for my lathe in 1967. The machine number is 11493 Model A.

    Kind regards Peter.

    G'Day Peter,
    I will be very interested in the above items
    My old girl is a ARL was built in 1972 No 14148
    I was lucky both the spare parts manual and the inspection record where in the cabinet, also have a scan of the 1970 Hercus Text Book.

    PS make sure your trailer is registered,
    I hired a trailer, went to Alice and back, just leaving Alice, got pulled over by the cops for having an unregistered trailer. $240.00 fine

    Now that I have the big parts of the bead and head stock cleaned up with citric acid, what would you do with the cracks and holes in the bog,
    I have a can of spray bog, which will cover the cover the small small crazed cracks in third photo, should I get a can of bog for car panels and repair the damaged areas?P2270498.JPGP2270499.JPGP2270497.JPG

    I can't speak for anyone else but I would sand, wire wheel, grit blast or gnaw it off mindful of any critical surfaces and apply new 'bog". Might as well do a good job instead of a half bottomed one.
