There is a plastic ring that must be removed. Right over the probe.

A resistor in series with the switch would do this, but is quite limiting compared to a potmeter.

Don`t know anything about Grafton, but that drill press looks very much like a Atlas.

Maybe some badge engineering?

There is a small piece of metal rod under each screw. Remove the screw and Get some thin oil in there.

although relatively unusual in the wider world, finds widespread use in the old Citroen cars I dearly love.

Only come across them on old Vespas. Not the 1,1 version.

Grease for the spindle bearings and oil for everything else I think.

The Boxford book is very good.
A search of south bend 9 inch lathe on you tube will give lots of results. Except for the spindle bearings your lathe is very similar.

A classic how to book is The amateur`s lathe Link .

You are right , it is a model C made in 1958.

Your lathe has the same rear drive as the original South Bends.

Most later Boxfords had the motor inside the stand, or a under drive UD.

That is a great looking workshop. The placement of the vdf is not so clever though.

ER collets have to be snapped into the nut. I did not do this when i first got a mill and was very dissapointed with the chuck`s runout.

The spring goes into the slot,you wind it up by turning the lid with two hands and secure it with your third hand when it`s thight.

Mine came without a spring. Guess someone took it out to get a replacement and never did.

I ordered a spring on ebay. Works fine.

Don`t remember the size as it is ten years ago.
