Well at long last it's finished and running again. I'm really pleased with it and have enjoyed the strip and clean up. I had a problem with the electrics but thanks to the help and advice from a forum member David (AKA Myford boy) I got it sorted. Thanks again David !

You will only need the reverse for running off-load - unless you have some means of preventing the chuck from unscrewing!smiley

If the chuck's done up tight, you need quite considerable resistance to make it unscrew. I used to sand and polish wood quite heavily in reverse as well as forward on the Speed 10 I had, without ever having that happen. It's also sometimes easier to get a knife tool at an angle to the the far side of a workpiece and chamfer the face in reverse.


Probably not heavy screwcutting, though... laugh

Hi Dave, nice job you did there.
Couldn't see any remote Stop in case you get caught up in the chuck or belt, perhaps it's at knee height ?

Hi Emgee, Yes a bit of an oversight on my part, I have no tooling for the lathe yet and would like a quick change toolpost so while I save some pennies for these items I have ordered an emergency stop button and will fix to the front of the bench before I start to use the Lathe.
