    Glad you got it solved Chuff.
    BTW, I meant no offense and used a poor choice of words.
    I do not consider you nor your machine old and grizzled.
    The exact opposite is true.

    I was just thinking about that last night Ben. If the worm seized inside the collar, it must have been during an operation using the power takeoff feature. I can only imagine the torque values...

    A Can of Worms

    Although Chuff doesn't say exactly where the worm gear has seized,
    I am guessing that the sleeve that the worm gear rides in has either rusted up or filled
    with debris, or both. That apron doesn't...

    ​See if you can't gently pry out the long key with a very small screw driver. If you can,
    then you should be able to tap out whatever pin remains in the hole.

    Totally agree; it's way past time for a good cleaning, re-felting and thorough oiling. It will probably not only fix your problem, but will solve many that you don't yet know about.

    Seems to me that since the ball and spring are gone, the easiest thing to do is to thread the brass hole w/ #10 or #8
    and simply screw in a short machine screw that you remove for occasional oiling...

    Dremel Tool

    I assume you have a Dremel Tool. They make a small 120 grit flap wheel that would work wonders on the body, but will take a little time on your part to finesse it. You'll never get it totally smooth,...

    Seems to me your question is how to temporarily elevate the lathe for a pallet jack, not about the rubber feet.

    No that never occurred to me. If it had refused to cut at all, then I would have known it was hardened.
    I just took it for granted that it wasn't...probably naive on my part. Are all nuts hardened...

    They are size 3C collets. I think the only original part in the set below is the spindle adaptor.

    Spindle Collet Adapter on a 9" Lathe

    Yes, you are both correct. The "thread protector" is more predominantly used to push the collet spindle adapter
    out of the short MT3 taper in the spindle (9" lathe). In the photo below, and using...

    Spindle Thread Protector

    Just thought I'd post some photos of a spindle thread protector I made from a 1.5 x 8 steel nut.
    The nut was pretty darn cheap. I took a couple of days to do this, taking my time. I knocked off the...

    Taper Attachment Clamp?

    I have what I think is a bed clamp for a taper attachment. At first, I thought it might be a clamp to hold a collet organizer tray,
    but I think it's too big for that. Important to know that the "V"...

    This IS Spindle Tap

    The tap worked like a champ, though starting it straight was a bit dicey.
    Thanks Tom.

    the old oil, and then reinstalling. Your nice new...
