Well I absolutely cannot believe it - went to turn down some steel tube and saw a huge amount of deflection in the chuck - and it turns out I hadn't fully tightend down the front bearing cap after replacing the belt (where I removed the spindle). I feel like a right lemon but looks like no harm done.

Good result, and you now have lots of alternative ways of approaching every job, so the thread was useful. Next time a belt needs changing on many types of lathes, remember that the link type can be fitted without disturbing the spindle.
