South Bend lathe model C cone pulley problem
So I started tearing into the lathe out of a desire to A. figure out how it all works, and B. to clean up all the gunk, dried oil, and swarf.
Almost immediately I found the first problem which is that the headstock drive cone pulley has a broken tooth where it engages the back gear. Looking on ebay I see that I can probably get one for $40 or so, and that is probably what I will do.
Of course the lathe will probably work fine this way as long as I am not taking monster cuts while in back gear, but it offends me.
