  3. Adjusting Nut for Boley Leinen Lathe

    I was going to get a nut that matches the one i have and do just that. There is a great fastener store 10 min from my house. Got all the hardware to bolt the lathe and motor to my desk Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  7. Adjusting Nut for Boley Leinen Lathe

    I agree. It is so hard to find and data on boley leinen reform lathes and what the nut is supposed to be. Probably need a hand from all the resources out there. I have worn out the Google keys on my tablet. Sent from my GT-N5110 using Tapatalk

    As well, not sure if i can just acquire a machined nut and cut a slice out of it, compress it slightly and use this. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. I set up my new Boley Leinen Reform lathe but the adjusting nut for the spindle does not lock as it is not a split nut and has no way of locking. I have included the photos. Would you know where one could get ine of these nuts? Sent from Yahoo Mail for iPhone Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. Cleaning Lathe using Lighter Fluid

    Thank you for all the trouble in explaining this process. My lathe has a nut on the back that has two strange holes. The nut does not stay tight when the lathe is running as there is really no way of locking it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Are these cone bearings on this Lathe. I did start to remove the spindle but after tapping it with a mallet , the spindle would go no further then the back of the head stock and it was still tight. I did not know how to convince it to go further so i stopped and knocked it back. And tips? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. I recently purchased a Boley Leinen Reform Lathe and in my research I discovered that there recommendation for freeing up the spindle is to add benzene or fuel to the oil wells on the top. Is this OK and what would the process be? Hear is the Lathe and Vintage instructions. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
