I purchased a Sears wood lathe Model No. 149-23860. There is an attachment on the end closest to the motor that is used to turn wooden bowls. I can’t gt it off. The guy that sold it to me said to simply grab the belts and twist the attachment. Doesn’t work. Please help. Also, does anyone have a manual for this beauty?

Thanks,

dsquared

Are you talking about a chuck? or faceplate?
I posted a question on another forum about this

I’m not familiar with that model. I have a Craftsman lathe but its a different model. Can you post a picture of what you’re looking at? I’m guessing its the face plate if he told you to hold the belts. If you take the shell off around the motor mine has an indexing lock. Its a red lever on the top side of the belts. This locks the belts in place and allows me to screw off the face plate. If you could post a pic of your lathe it would be a lot more helpful. I cant find anything about it on the web.

If it’s on the outside, left side of the lathe, it has left handed threads.

From personal experience, hopefully, someone didn’t turn on the lathe when the attachment wasn’t quite seated. If that happened, the inertia of the attachment and the spindle can jamb the attachment VERY tight. You may need to devise a way to lock the spindle shaft and use a wrench on the attachment. There is a teflon washer you can buy to add between the attachment and the head stock to prevent this from happening again.

Here is a place to purchase the washer:
