You might try buying a manual for it. There is one on E-bay right now. might be $14.00 well spent.

Hope this helps.

Most likely you have a stripped out "disc feed screw."
This is a common problem I see several times a month in the field.
The stripped out portion of the screw is near the end of the feed range obviously.

Instructions for changing an ammco 3000 brake lathe to a 4000. Parts needed?


Yes, an Ammco 3000 brake lathe can be converted over to a 4000 model--most any year 3000.... preferably the later years after 1970.

The problem with some of the early 60's models is that the cross-feed bore is not perfectly perpendicular to the spindle.

If you convert one of these models, you will cut the rotor at an angle and then jam the machine.

Later models can easily be converted.

You will need...

1) A complete disc feed gearbox.
2) A driven pulley (the big one) set-up for a with a pin drive.
3) A complete spindle lock assembly for the Infimatic gearbox.
4) Possibly need a longer guide bar for the cross-freed. If you have a round guide bar, this is possibly long enough. If you have a "Double-D" guide bar (flat on each side), you most likely will need a longer bar.
5) A complete twin-cutter, with tool guides, tool holders, knobs, etc.

We have all the parts you need for a conversion--or we can convert it expertly for you...

If you live near a machine shop any lathe operator can steer you in the right direction, or you could call them. I'm not certain if Ammco is still in business. I had the same machine in my shop in 1976, not the same model # of course, but a model with the stand.
