I just picked up this Logan 820 10" lathe for making tooling and building tools like my bead roller. It's in great condition for being born in 1946

Came with 4 jaw, 3 jaw , 2 face plates, steady rest, follower rest, live center, dead center, drill chuck and the custom cabinet it's on.

Hi Bud, Okay, go on down and get yourself a digital caliper, a inside bore-gauges set, (t-set), depth gauge, cheap dial indicators and a squirt can to feed oil into the lil flippers there for drip lube.

( tool-grinder, boring bar, turning tools, other tooling as you need it)

That lathe can "true" harley flywheels with two centers, one in chuck, one in tailstock.. on with the show..

I can say the lathe I bought about 2001 has paid for itself over and over and over..

Went to HF and picked up some cheap digital calipers 6", 1" dial indicator, magnetic stand. I'll try and find bore gauges and depth gauge. One of my first projects on it/for it will be a radius cutter and a setup for horizontal milling smaller parts. I want to set up to make my bead roller and dies & build a power hammer & dies. I'm pretty stoked about it specially as I have $0.00 in it well $50.00 I did buy some material for flooring in the crate I traded for it.

Radii cutters are kinda expensive! you can make your own, some good websites to check out http://www.practicalmachinist.com/ http://www.chaski.com/homemachinist/ http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net/ http://hobby-machinist.com/ http://www.machinistweb.com/forum/index.php Of course there are cnc forums if you go that route, David is your man for that!!!!. tt;)

Old Goaly I belong to 3 of those forums. I now work in a CNC machine shop, been there about 4 months now and can pretty much make anything I need there as long as it's on my own time and the machine is available, we have 2 trax mills with conversational programing I've done a couple projects on. We have 5 vertical automated CNC mills and 2 horizontals including a brand new Mazak with a 220 tool holder & pallet changer, 2 cnc lathes plus 4 more manual units of various size.

I'm gonna build my own radius cutter, haven't really seen any plans for one yet but watched one being used on youtube

Thanks, that's the style I plan to build.

OR?? I made a rude "pattern holder" for my lathe, it is welded to a C-clamp and has a alignment rig that drops onto the bed of the lathe. This clamps a flat sheetmetal or cardboard template, IE: anvil with flats.. you then use the x-y lathe bed handles to trace the pattern, a pointer mounted on the tool mount traces the pattern. It takes a bit to get everything tuned in, but once you do it's like a etch a sketch.

I got pictures somewhere if you need them, I don't think you will. It ain't rocket science and you are a sharp guy.

I will, it's been in my buddies basement for 40 years, well not in that one but he's owned and cared for it for 40 years.
