Now that I’ve purchased a lathe, I need to use it. One thing I thought would be easy is to setup the lathe out of the box. The assembly process is easy. But I haven’t been able to find much on squaring the lathe for use. For table and band saws there is a lot of information on how to setup and square them. I’m thinking there isn’t much to do at this point except to get the centers centered.
I recall seeing on LJ that someone with the same lathe, thought the pulleys or motor, etc should be lubed.
Tried to find the post but no luck. I removed the motor cover to take a look. It looked clean and saw no problems.
So I’m not sure what should be lubed.
