I noticed yesterday that there was a 2” crack on one corner of the tailstock on my HF lathe.
It looks as though the entire corner has weakened as I can see what looks like a separation of the casting along the entire corner on the inside.
Does anyone know if this can be fixed? And if so, how?
I am also wondering if I should just continue to use it and see if it gets any worse. It does not seem to prevent the lockdown function but I’m thinking that eventually it will break off. I’d hate to think of what a new casting would cost and then it may not align properly anyway.
