    Thanks for the advice\help everyone
    I used to remove the drain plug on the apron before I bought a lathe. If oil came out that was a good sign, although obviously the oil could have been changed recently. If coolant came out that was bad sign. Lots of lathes are prone to coolant egress into the apron, " Colchester's " were just one of many.

    Regards Tyrone.
