    Thanks for the feedback guys. I plan to wipe down with extra strength simple green and lacquer thinner, and then prime with Kem Kromik, with a top coat of Urethane Alkyd Enamel.

    Hey guys, just got back in town and found these spots on the lathe. I assume it’s oil seeping through the casting? Thoughts on what it is, and how to address before I prime?

    got it back from the sandblaster today. Looks good. Hopefully it doesn’t flash rust while I’m away on business for a couple days.

    We’ll the brass bushing came out with an easy tap. So it looks like it was a light press fit that held it in? Between the drum switch pressure and the hub connecting to the drum switch, there’s really no chance of it coming out.

    Hey guys, any advice on removing the tachometer, to prep for paint? Easy to do? Worth it, or just tape and paint around it?

    Drum switch mystery solve….. Tapered pin, removes the back half of the switch, which is the only thing holding the rod and switch in. Then the rod comes right out. And there’s a plate that comes off. Then there’s a spring that pushes a pin behind it. Anyone know what this is for?

    This is good news and will save a ton of time. I was prepared to strip the entire machine to bare metal. Where the OEM paint is stable, o will leave and prime over. Then body filler, sand then color, seal, etc.

    Was thinking the same thing. I’m stripping paint off the base and bed right now, but dealing with the headstock is next on my list, once I get primer on those 2 parts. I’ll be sure to let everyone know how the drum switch is removed

    Thought so. I’ll be sure to plug it, as it was not. I wonder if that’s where my leak was?

    Guys, got the bed of the lathe off and started cleaning. Do these holes in the bed of the lathe, at the headstock all make sense? It seems there is one small hole towards where the gearbox would go, that doesn’t belong?
