Your welcome.
The lathe I'm using is a 1933 Metalcraft (copy of an Atlas) . I traded a tow dolly for it and it has been fun learning how to use it on my CK build.
This is my first time cutting threads on a lathe and it all turned out fine. Those rear axles are made of very hard metal.
I'm not a machinist or welder but having a blast learning. Watching lots of You-Tube videos on lathe operation.

That is so funny.
One of my lathes is a 1938 Atlas, that I have had in my shop for over 35 years!

In reply to # 30379 by Woodysrods Nice to see such a nice clean box with so little wear.
Even the ends of the grove that provide stop are not all rounded or chamfered off.
That is a 4 to 1 box you have.
Be interesting to see how that makes your Ck handle?
Should be great at high speed on open road.
Thanks for the pictures.

Back on the cyclekart again. Had to take time off and do some maintenance on the bus. New fuel system and filters.
I had to cut the center out of the brake disc so it would mount up to the rearend.
rearend installed and tires mounted.
next I'll tackle mounting the brake caliper

Caliper mounted.
Playing around with body mockup, not sure if I want to go with wood, metal, fiberglass or a combination of all 3.
I pulled the cushion off my old office chair to hopefully sit me in the right spot to set steering wheel position.
Brake and throttle pedals will be adjustable sitting on a seat adjuster from a forklift.
I really need to get the tub built and installed, it would be a great help.

This is too much of a coincidence, when I was building my streetrods up in MI in the mid to late '90s, I needed a lathe. So I checked around and found a few. The one I bought was an Atlas just like the picture. I got a box full of aluminum gears for every conceivable speed and feed available I think...

I used it at only one feed speed, never changed gears. I was making spacers etc, no need to be fancy back then.

I tore it down to move here to the greater St Louis are back in '02 and it's still knocked down in the attic of my three car garage. I just don't have the floor space to assemble it in this garage.

I do plan to have more room after I retire and it will come in handy then. I paid $200 for it in the mid '90s.

I wouldn't be able to build my CK the way I am without the lathe, it's one of those tools that nothing else can replace.

Wood for the bulkheads, aluminum for the flat panels, and foam and glass for the compound stuff.
Really looking forward to this one.

As I have said before, I too have an Atlas lathe (used it yesterday) and a second larger lathe that I have not used for at least 2 days while building my CK......but, what I am really loving at this point in my build is my "Pan Break"smiling bouncing smiley
It was lost in my barn for a couple years, but know that I have it set up, and am doing what I am doing on my CK, I seem to find a use for it every day!

I'm in the same boat with you guys. There isn't a day go by that I don't have something in
the mill or lathe. It just fits together sooooo nice when it's done right.
Talkin' 'bout old lathes, I got cha both beat, my 1917 16" Lodge & Shipley comes in real handy
for those big heavy parts that the Logan can't handle. And a good mill is a must in my shop,
and.....two is better than one.
