    Sudden Onset Chatter Issues - riding the struggle bus and need some HELP, please.

    Electrical source issue, motor issue, bearings in motor, worn brushes, ect. My understanding of Silent Drive was to stop the transfer of vibrations created by the single phase power and motors to get a better finish.

    South Bend 9 x 4 1/2 - Wide Bed

Hercus was the Aussie copy of the SB lathe:[url=https://tokentoolroom.com/files/Text%20book%20of%20turning.pdfIt] is a good book to read with the SB- How To Run A Lathe. I found it answered some of the questions that SB mentioned but didn't really explain.
