OK....back on task.      I got the runner blank.   A M42 HSS drill blank of 0.3125/0.3123 diameter.    It fit PERFECTLY.    On to the next part of the process...

I also got a nice storage box for her.

Naah.....Not feeling it.     The Levin is far more girl than a rich real estate mogul who just wanted a free trip to Hawaii.

Ms Lovely it is.   


Glad we got through that ,,,,,might not sleep again tonight....   8)

Trying to figure out what motor to drive her with....   I have a 1/6 HP 1725 induction motor...nice and quiet.   I also have a Sherline motor with variable speed....but not so quiet.

Ms "L" doesn't have to work about metal removal rates.......hmmm

In any case there is room for either motor as well as the lathe in box.   Then I'm going to put a tool tray above them for collets, cross slide, draw bar and runners.    Self contained and ready to be used but protected.

Dave,
As you most likely know anything with Levin stamped on it goes for a premium price. This makes a Levin triple or double slide a bit expensive. The only reason to go with a Levin over a Boley or a Derbyshire of other good slide is the Levin has an extension of the main lead screw. The purpose of the lead screw extension is to use a screw cutting attachment.

http://www.watchtoolsonline.com/Screw-Cutting-Attachment-for-Levin-other-Watchmakers-Lathes-7047.htm

The other feature on a Levin slide that is not on other slides is there is a recess with a pin in the top surface this is for a hand lever. The lead screw can be removed and the hand lever attached for rapid travel.

I have been collecting Levin parts for a few years now. I started with a Levin triple slide that I got at a steamup for cheap. The rest of the lathe has not been cheap.
