The lathe spindle will be turning forward as normal operation. The lead screw will be turning toward the tailstock (bottom hole on the for/rev lever). The compound will be swiveled with the handle toward the chuck at 29.5 degrees and cut away. The carriage will be in (netrual center hole) Use the half nut lever to cut. Just watch your fingers if moving close to the chuck...Bob
