|Thread: HELP HELP HELP - Warco 1224 Gear Head Lathe|
A while ago I had a problem like Yours with my Emco Compact 8.
Please read "Lathe work - A complete course" by Harold Hall.
In page 37 You will find a recommendation which saved me the day.
Amongst a wealth of technical and practical information information He says
"Typically, if the teste piece is larger at the outer end, the front mounting at
the tailstock end requires to be raised, or if smaller, then the mounting requires

|Thread: Lathe open gearing lubrication|
The best grease I found to the gear train is BP Energrease LCX 222.
Beyond lubrication qualities it has a great adherence to the gears and
keeps there for longer than any other grease I've used.
I've been using it for two and a half years either in my Emco Compact 8
