I know your spindle is together now, here is a fascinating series of articles on the topic of spindle rebuilds.

Lots of your analysis is confirmed in the articles.

Very pleased to hear Phil, its nice to know people have made use of it. Sorry to hear about the tailstock being low, but if shim can fix it thats a result.

So I can also plug the tool setter as a test and measurement device for lathe centres  :med:

The reason the prices are cheaper than anyone else is the quality of the steel they are made of.

Hi Joules,
 I passed on your files to my friend and he kindly printed 3 units for me. I assembled the tool setter with the shaft protruding on both sides, to be able to mount it in the spindle or the tailstock. The first time used it, I calibrated it in my spindle and then check it in the tailstock , to my surprise the bubble was off. I had to put a .020" shim on top of my tool bit to get it to level again. My tailstock is adjustable left and right but not up and down ;( at some point I will put a shim in between the base and the top part of the tailstock.  The good news is when I tested the tool setter in my lathe at work it worked perfectly, cutting on center and leveled in the spindle and the tailstock Thanks for posting and sharing the files to build the tool setter.   
Cheers!

Tools / Indian (asian} lathe.

I have been toying with the idea of buying an Indian flat belt medium centre lathe,yes they still make them from a 100 years ago.
The indian firms can supply any style flat belt,gear head,cnc,even giant machines,and the prices are amazingly cheap.The reason i would go for flat belt apart from price is that i don't need high speed,all i need is a solid machine with a spindle that can pass 2"shafting. Do any of you guy's now anyone who has bought from India? Cheers.Ronnie.

Here are some charts with imperial measurements, from KBC Tools.

16mm is the length of one side .

Thanks guys, I have now established that they are VBMT inserts.

Thanks again, I think I've made some progress as far as inserts are concerned! Cheers Matthew.

If the pictures are too big you can view them at KBC Tools. Click on the E-Catalog, page 162.

Hey Mark,

I built a CNC router (X-carve). It's working pretty well for that, although I would like a more robust CNC controller. The DDCSV is great, but I do wish they'd release an updated, improved model of it.
