    Thanks for the quick response. I tried turning/pushing/etc but couldn't find a way to move the DI. How is it supposed to be used? The zero adjustment worked so it doesn't appear to be frozen.

    I'm in Georgia as well, a little north of Atlanta in Johns Creek. What year is the lathe? What is the swing? I might have a collet adapter that will fit. I have a 14" swing from around 1898.
