I would love to have a full set of 10ER tubes to play with.

That and the od of the bench tubes on the earlier mark 5's.

The 10e/r tubes are much thicker!!!(and heavier).

A 'full set' of 10E/R tubes is two way tubes.

FWIW the 'lower tubes' on a Mark VII are the same length as the way tubes(52"), but have those holes for the tilt pivot, and there is that gear rack on the 'front' way tube.

Thanks for your speedy reply JPG40504. :)


Can anyone tell me what the tube spacing is for 10ER tubes ?
MK5 ways are spaced 7" apart (center to center) and wondered if 10ER spacing is the same or a bit different ?

All Mark 2/5/V/7 bench tubes are 52 3/4" long.
Greenies have 1 7/8" bench tubes
Older goldies(Gilmer) have 1 7/8" bench tubes.
Later models have 1 3/4" bench tubes.
A 10E/R jig saw will only fit on a 10E/R

505-520 models require longer saw arbors due to the tables.

None of the 'current' SPT's fit a 10E/R(but inventive users have solved that).

Anything that attaches to the quill will fit ANY model including the 10E/R.
You might want to check on the Mark 2 bench 'tubes'.....in some cases they may have been 2x4's.;)

Why do you think so?

The 2x4 is not far fetched.

AIUI there were M2 with wooden 'bench' 'rails'.

My M2 'pieces' are mounted on 3/4" plywood with doubled grooved 1x3 sides using M5 way tubes.

The end castings appear to have been originally mounted to wood since a square socket is cast in them.

It seems that our Admin deleted the spammer, as well as his (her) posts.

And, left me talking to myself.:o

Well glad to hear you were not hallucinating. FWIW, he missed one!

Something good(I think) came from this, I added to a previous post in this thread due to some 'intervening' posts which I had previously 'missed'.

I love this forum, check in several times a day and read every post.
I also belong to several Yahoo groups, I find the format there is not as easy to navigate and since the "improvements":confused: Yahoo made earlier this year the traffic has dropped to almost nothing. The one thing I do like about the Yahoo sites is the Files section which allows reference material to be stored and easily found and downloaded by other users.

Add a library section to the forum.

I love this forum, check in several times a day and read every post. I like the feeling of community and shared interest. I don't find writing a quick or easy process but I do post if I feel I have something of value to add to the discussion.

The one thing I do like about the Yahoo sites is the Files section which allows reference material to be stored and easily found and downloaded by other users.

This summer I got interested in turning pens and joined the IAP (International Association of Penturners) forum. The part of that site that I have used the most is the Library which contains Tutorials written by the members and stored as PDF files.

I was happy to see that the IAP forum is powered by vBulletin software, as is this forum.

That means that it should also be technically possible to implement a Library section here.:)

I would like to hear what others think, but I believe this could provide a more flexible format for tutorials and articles such as the ones that have been written by JPG, reible, mickyd and others over the years and also make them more accessible to the other users of this forum.

I agree that that is a good idea. However, the tutorials are time consuming to write. Someone has to organize (like Mickyd did) them. JPG, as have others, already written a few that could simply be linking from an "organization" page. It would take some effort, but I think a nice asset to this forum...
