    Default Boehringer vdf due 560

    Hi, accidentally got this Boehringer VDF DUE 560 lathe.
    Seems to me that clutch needs some adjustment - I can not change gear without turning of motor, spindle starts and stops properly.
    Also need some advice where to start looking for feed trouble - feed rod nor lead screw are not turning.
    Anybody has manual for this or similar lathe?post-34237-081295100_1542467941.jpg

    Interesting how VDF positions the drive motor so that the machine footprint is extended from what pretty much everyone else does. We had an older VDF which required dropping a lever on the feedbox to change feeds or thread pitches. Check to see if your machine has something similar and if it does, that it is in the fully engaged position. Not sure how to adjust the clutch.
