MINDLESS BORING: Assessing the value of a used logan lathe model 920, checking the working parts and condition. Here I am indicating the spindle run out and condition of the bearings in the headstock of a logan screw cutting engine lathe, and the other major parts, including the lathe power apron, cross slide, and accuracy of the lathe chuck, using several precision Brown and Sharpe dial test indicators. These are some simple test that should be done when looking at the condition of a used lathe. = SHARE ROCKNTV1
