9 headstocks rebuilt in June 2018

June 22 – On vacation now! Be sure to watch my free videos here on the web site for maintenance and troubleshooting tips.

Because of a vacation trip the final week of June, I accepted only 10 machines this month. In July I will again accept 15 machines for service. Spots for July are now open and available in my web store.

Jacob: Headstock received. Thanks so much. It is quieter than it has ever been since I purchased it (used). I have used it for 2-3 hours so far, and it works well. I will try and keep up with the lubrication schedule. Bill

Thank you! I’d also like to say thank you for all your videos. They have been a great help to me and no doubt countless others. So naturally your place is my first stop for parts.
I purchased a 1981 Mark V off Craigslist. Cleaned it up and got it running smooth till that bearing fetched up.You may be amused to hear that the cost of a belt, bearing and shipping exceed what I paid for the machine! I owe you a beer or 3 🙂 John

I really appreciate your great service and your thorough communication. I am not a Facebook person so I can’t ‘like’ you there, but let me know if there is some other way I can support and promote your services.

Thanks again, Tom

Just received markV lower belt and oiler. That belt made a huge
difference in smoothness and noise, Thanks!

oiler is very handy as you said <grin>


Belts almost always need replacing if they are over 10 years old. They get stiff, shred, crack, wear narrower, etc over time. The upper belts can last 25 years but should be replaced then even if there is no obvious problems with them.
