Re: It wont fit under the christmas tree

Sounds like you got a hell of a deal,that machine looks
like new.I'm kind of curious,if the lathe has a geared
head for spindle speed changes where are the usual dial/
lever controls? Is this function now handled by the CNC
controler? Also,whats that gizmoid that looks like a big
tool post?

P.S. I hope you don't ruin the lino on the floor. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: It wont fit under the christmas tree

Its is a belt driven gear trans head. The pic is one like mine not actual the only one on the net I could find.. I should be picking it up Sat. The dials for gear changes are behind the controler. both dors slide back and forth
