    Default SQT200MS Air Leak

    Hi, I've just been to look at a SQT200MS 1998 T+ lathe that's being sold at auction. Whilst inspecting the machine there was a loud air leak coming from the main spindle area, not knowing this machine I can't think of anything in that area that would require air, any thoughts anyone?

    Probably the air line going into the tool eye that blows on the eye when you are touching off tools. Just a guess though.

    Cheers, I was worried it was maybe some kind of air mist lube system for the spindle bearings
