Hi have just bought a denford viceroy lathe.

My problem is to transport it home I need to split the lathe from the cabinet.

Looking in the cabinet I can see 4 large nuts each with a smaller nut underneath the big one which is a bit of a puzzle.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards Art

Removing the small nuts will release the bed from the cabinet IIRC the studs poke through the larger 'nuts'. If it's an underdrive model you'll still have the belt to think of and if it's a 280VS or Synchro there will be some electrics to take care of too before the bed will come off. Interlock switches, lo-volt light etc.
