I have a Pultra P type 8mm short bed lathe.

It is missing the thrust washer/bearing between the pulley and the rear head stock bush adjusting nut.

I would like to get it back into use.

Any chance somebody has one that they would be willing to part with?

Presumably, without the washer, the lathe is not usable?

If f it is a runner, why not measure up, and then make one?

It is not a runner as is.

The other problem one description tells me it was fitted with a ball bearing thrust another says a thrust washer.

So I am a bit in the dark as to just what I am looking for.

Can you work out the inner and outer dimensions and approximate thickness?

Having had measure of the gap the size of the washer would look to be:-

I.D. 0.686"

O.D. 1.318"

Thick. 0.160"

Well after a bit of thought and input from the forum, three fibre washers and my needle files I have made something that will allow me to use it.

I will have to keep a look out for a head stock.

Due to illness I have been stopped from driving and using machinery just as I have my Myford set up with speed control and D.R.O.

Thanks for the post Michael.

Unfortunately there is not much chance of a speedy recovery from what I have.
