I have a new nova 1624-44 lathe (2 months) and am very happy with its performance. I do have two problems. When I push the start button the motor will only run while the button is depressed. I removed the switch cover and their was black wire marked ‘0’ which was not attached to a terminal. I couldn’t see a 0 wire on the switch wire diagram and couldn’t see a terminal without a wire. I don’t know if this is the problem.
The pulleys are not aligned, 2 ridges on the belt overhang the pully. I read in the manual to adjust the motor pulley. I have loosened the set screw but the pulley is firmly attached. Does anyone know an easy way to loosen the pulley? thanks

I can answer 1 of my questions today. Was able to pull the switch out of its housing and on the underside was a terminal matching the black wire. Connected it now works. Still working on the pulley problem. Suggestions appreciated. Thanks

Don’t have any experience with lathes, but my first question would be have you contacted the manufacturer for help? Most reputable companies have a tech line you can call for help getting tools set up.

Thanks for the reply. Did the Technatool email but knew I would wait awhile for a reply. Trying to tap into the vast pool of experience which you folks have. Thanks
