At Dan's Machine Tool, Inc., we specialize in the repair and reconditioning of all types of metalworking equipment. Customers trust us to provide the critical repairs to their mills, lathes, iron workers, benders, and other machinery that keep production running. When a piece of equipment is down or not functioning properly, an experienced technician can make a visit to the customer’s facility in order to make an initial diagnosis. Depending on the severity of the issue, a repair may be made on-site or the equipment can be transferred to our facility.

  • South Bend Lathe Works was founded in 1906 by the O'Brien twin brothers after they graduated from Purdue University in Indiana. Within just a quarter of a century, South Bend Lathe Works became the largest manufac.

For full rebuilds, equipment is cleaned, disassembled, and all components are evaluated for wear. Any belts, bushings, fasteners, and other wear parts are replaced as needed and structural repairs are completed to the frame and body. Ways can be ground parallel and hand scraped to factory tolerances. The machine can then be reassembled and tested to customer requirements. We can also repair and rebuild older equipment that most shops no longer support, including Bridgeport mills. Through our extensive used equipment network, we maintain a significant inventory of hard to find replacement parts salvaged from older machinery. For more information about our equipment repair and rebuilding capability, see the table below, or contact us directly.

Step 10:
Centre point alignment:
Once a year, depending the precision required would be convenient to verify alignment of centre tailstock with centre of headstock.
Alignment can be obtain by fitting a total parallel bar between centres, and the with a dial indicator verify parallelism between centres.
