OK, so I bought this thing a few years back and it has been a boat anchor in my shop ever since. I'm debating on what to do with this thing, since it is taking up valuable space and I'm just not in to the turning thing right now. Now, I think it is a 159 series, but it doesn't have the large metal wheel sticking out the drive end. I don't know if it's missing it, or this is a different model. Any ideas?
Also, when the speed control is placed to the stop position, the lathe doesn't actually stop. Is there a micro switch somewhere that needs to be replaced/fixed?
So, trying to figure out which lathe I have and how much of a pain to fix the stop function.
Just "turning" things over in my mind.
This may not be the proper forum for this, so please move if need be.
