That gauge looks unfinished, I have the brown & Sharpe version that must be about 60 years old and it is a joy to use all the sizes are beautifully ground. Is it possible its hooky?

If your ceiling is high enough to be able to pull the drawbar straight out the top then you're luckier than me!. Only way is to tilt the head right, do whatever with the drawbar, tilt it back and align it. Pain in the neck which I haven't had to do for about 125 years luckily.

Need a ventilation cowl on the roof, just above the spindle.

I had a similar problem with my Myford VM-B drawbar, which hit the ceiling of my workshop. It was in a two-storey structure with a bedroom above. I cut a square hole in the workshop ceiling plasterboard, glued in a short piece of square drainpipe abutting the floorboard above, and cleaned out the insulation material in the gap. This gave me room to remove the drawbar with about 1/2" to spare.
