I had the same problem on my 1236. There’s a C clip inside the tailstock that rides up onto the threads if you overtighten. E.g., using the tail to seat your drive spur into the wood.

Just remove the tail’s handwheel and the entire assembly can be pulled out. Pit the C clip back into the groove behind the threads and your problem is resolved.

-- I dream of a world where a duck can cross the road and no one asks why.
