I need to move a Super 7 and am trying to disconnect the lathe from the table it is mounted on. I've removed the four coach screws that hold the bed down but the lathe is still attached to the table by the on/off switch. See two photos below. So far, I haven't worked out the best way to separate lathe and table. It looks like there is a short (1" or so) length of conduit firmly holding the lathe and table together. Any suggestions on how to get them apart?

Unscrew the brass nipple where the wires feed through into the Dewhurst switch.

Yes . as above. Isolate the supply. Mark & disconnect the wires. Remove the brass bush & it should be free.
