It ain't in the grave yet and I think you are the man to save it. Keep us informed. That crash must have been a real disaster.

Oliver, Those look like some real old repairs. They been done a while ago. I don't think they are bad repairs tho. I would fix it up too. It looks like a good machine. It can't be any worse than my 100 year old Monarch. Its got some fixes on it too and it still works good.Theres still some fixing I have to do on it too. The Hendy will be a fine machine when your done with it. I like it. Kevin

This Hendey is being parted out in case someone has a similar lathe and needs something:

Default parts ??

Think so. I sent Jim a PM and he replied that some things were still available. We agreed on a couple of items, and I sent off a check tonight.
I NEED the handle for the quick change gearbox, and he had one. The cover/tray on the Q/C box must have gotten broken on mine (related to the Big Crash ?), and he had that also. it should fit; he said the 14" was different, but 16" should be the same.
I don't have a thread chart, or even a mfgr's name tag on mine (that's how I started this discussion). The one on the lathe he's parting out has an extended range chart on it; maybe 24 different speeds. One range ought to be close to my speeds, and at least I will have a tag on the machine in that spot. I can run a few different cuts to see what the tpi would be. The likelyhood of me cutting threads is pretty low.
Still looking for a motor. 220 v., 2hp, single phase is hard to find used around here. Tractor supply has a farm duty 56HZ for around $269; Grainger's has 56HZ, 145T, and 182T in increasing prices; Troy Belting (Troy Motor Service) can get me a 184 frame motor for "only" $569 !!
Gonna watch Craigslist and ask around locally for a while yet.

I'll post an update as I go along, to keep 'ya up to date.

oops !! can't edit the title; left the T off. Sorry !

Default ‘nuther update on the Hendy

Jeez! It’s been eleven years since I first posted on this machine. I have done a number of small jobs on this lathe, but not a lot of repairs. I keep it clean and oiled because it is in an seldom heated shop, and I fight condensation and flash rust all the time.
The biggest thing I have done lately was related to my concience (sp ?). This was sitting in the corner of the JD dealer I worked at and almost never used; never for a revenue job. Just to make a tool, etc. When the boss’s father-in-law that owned the lathe died, I asked my boss if he wanted to sell the lathe. He told me to ask his BIL because it was now his. Long story short, that man is a teacher and had no knowledge of or interest in the lathe. He asked me what I’d give him for it and I threw him a low number, expecting to bargain. He took my offer!
It has bugged me since then, because I had given him way less than it was worth, even as scrap. Recently I stopped by his place and gave him the rest of what I feel I should have given him to begin with. It still wasn’t much, but I feel better about it now, and don’t feel guilty whenever I go near it.
Rock on, y’all.
Oliver Durand
