Hi, I am dismantling the headstock for cleaning on my Wolf Jahn lathe, I just want to check that I'm doing it correctly. So step 1. I have loosened the screws on the Pulley. step 2. gently tap the spindle out with a wooden hammer while supporting the Pulley so it doesn't hit the headstock. Is step 2. correct? Thanks in advance Dan
Hi, Has anyone seen a tool post mount like the one on my Wolf Jahn slide rest? It has a conventional slot on one half, but the other half has a plain face with four screw holes. Could this be for attaching a vertical slide? I’m wondering if I should machine a square with a conventional slot and screw this down so that I can attach my tool holder closer to to the work (and thus reduce tool chatter). Also, does anyone know what screw sizes thy used on German lathes? The screw sizes are 3.2mm and 3.5mm and the thread pitch is 0.725mm, so neither Metric nor BA or Thury Thanks.
