    Noam,
    I can't remember--does your tachometer work? Mine does not, but I have an external laser tach that I can use pretty easily, and I'm not looking forward to tearing into the control panel.

    Noam,
    I haven't tried the thread brake yet. It's encouraging that it works!

    I get a decent surface finish, but it should be better. I get erratic spindle DTI measurements--it has runout of...

    Noam,
    My 12s shifts ok but I often need to wiggle things to get it in/out of gear, whether speed, power feed, or threading selectors. The carriage shifter moves easily and positively in/out of...

    Noam,
    That's great. What did you decide to do about your Reeve's belt? You might want to buy a smart phone boroscope. I've been very impressed with the one from Depstech....

    Bill,
    Thanks. I searched with no success. I'll PM Forrest. I really enjoyed his review of the Multifix toolpost, but I don't remember a discussion on lathe spindle bearings.

    Javan,
    What was ultimately determined to be the problem and fix? Was it preload or did you need to change bearings?
    Thanks,

    Jeff,
    Peter nailed it. The Reeves drive has limit switches that prevent excessively fast and slow speeds. My tach readout doesn't work, so I just judged speed by eye and exceeded the max speed in...

    Success! Amazing how I'd not seen the instructions for reset when they were disguised by other languages!

    Peter,
    You answered two questions in one post. I'd wondered what those push-buttons were--the way they are labeled I assumed they'd been installed by the previous owner (the PO also had a thermal...

    Hmm not sure if the 12s has the switch--think that's a 12 thing? And my lack of Italian schematic reading skills is why I'm tossing out the question. The operations manual is challenging enough, the...

    Graziano 12S Stopped?

    I was running my 12S in back gear. My tach doesn't work, so I'm not sure of the RPM, but it didn't look fast enough so I increased it. Then everything got really quiet--the entire lathe shut down. ...

    Peter,
    Sorry to hear of your trouble. I think I will need to pull the gearbox at some point, as the Reeves drive makes atrocious noise at the lowest and highest settings.

    Could you post some...

    I'm rather embarrassed to admit that I find the tachometer board. I pulled the control panel thinking it would be in there, but it's not. It's also not in the power panel. Could it be down...

    Holy cow I just priced the SKF puller--$1500! I had no idea.

    I need to pull the spindle bearings, not the drive bearing (although I may while I'm at it). Is this puller needed for that task?

    Peter,
    Is this the puller for the bearings behind the pulleys?

    SKF

    If that bearing is bad could it explain erratic TIR, I.e. sub-0.0003” at the end of a 12” test bar that “jumps” a few...

    Noam,
    Your handles look like good quality, especially after you bushed them. My handle works nicely, but I have to cut a length off the threaded portion. Pretty similar I'd say.

    Wes,
    I wondered what that switch was for! I don't remember seeing any description of that feature in the manual.

    It seems like something that is easy and safe to try without threading.
