    Some have recommended machining the worn flat and V ways on the bottom of the tailstock and screwing on 1/8" to 1/4" thick shims then scraping to fit. I'm curious why no one has recommended this fix...

    Greasing 16CY clutch

    The badge on the machine says to grease the clutch once/year. I didn't see any grease fittings. What gets greased and what's the procedure/process?

    Looks like a nice starter size and easy to power and therefore the premium price. I recommend you study the archives on how to assess the condition of a used lathe when buying. Understand that the...

    So am i to understand that Moglice would be applied to the bearing surfaces on the bottom of the tailstock and does not exhibit the "sliding problem" when clamped for drilling?

    I took the horizontal measurements as recommended and came up with what looks to be a linearly increasing variation over the length of the bed. Then it occurred to me that i have not yet leveled the...

    I recommend a 4 jaw. You'll need to learn to indicate it but it's much more versatile and will be more accurate. I got a new (surplus) 10 inch 4 jaw chuck from poland off of ebay for about $300. ...

    I'd wait until everything else on the machine is working then chuck up the new handwheel and trim down the hub (don't need the TS for that). Then when you go to drill & ream the center bore, put the...
