Ok, have a catalog from cdco tools coming. Have a couple others coming also.

The manuals I'll get ordered from Ozarkwoodworker this next week. Then I can start drooling over the tool catalogs.

I can't go too much farther in the cleaning, until I disassemble a little bit. For that, I'll wait for the manuals.

get the South Bend lathe book. any year. I think mine is a 1923. There is only minor changes in them. Available on amazon and eBay. Very basic and informative. Jerry

As to cleaning and disassembling, the manuals will help, but not like a 'service manual' they just aren't that complete. If there is a part that you want to take apart, study it, look it over, and if it isn't clear, post it on here, and chances are that there's someone on here that can help walk you through it.

What will help is if you can find parts manuals/sketches, as they tend to list and show the hidden fasteners and such so that one can figure out the order of how to go about things.

I agree the owners manuals aren't like a "service manual". However I have been taking apart things & putting them back together since I was 2 years old (according to my parents). Didn't always work after put back together, but more often than not, it did.

I know my way around jet turbine engines, complete with afterburners, supersonic aircraft, racing engines - Ford, GM & Mopar - with or without blowers/turbo's, stock engines, transmissions, all the different carbs & fuel injection (mechanical) used in US made cars/trucks, building houses/garages, other buildings..............but,

I hesitate to disassemble this until I understand how it works. I don't wanna break it before it cuts a chip.

Jerry, South Bend Lathe Manual it is. I found one on E-Bay that was to be issued to military members. Heavy laminated paper in a heavy plastic cover.

From one old, bald Air Force guy to another... you suck!

So, you think you got a good deal on a free lathe? Buddy, it's just starting. Hell, you're already losing sleep, and you don't even having it running yet. As I'm sure you know, addictions can be all consuming; I almost feel sorry for you.

Congradulations Mark and yes, YOU SUCK!
Since you don't have any tooling, the quick change is a good idea. I still get by with the lantern post, though. The second accessory on my list, would be a 4 jaw chuck. There's so much you can do with one. It can be a fair substitute for a mill. Just look at some of the stuff digr has done.

+1 on the South Bend manual. I'm always referring to mine.

Cutter, ya' got me all teary-eyed with that speech. Lathes are definitely, one of those "how did I get along without it", tools.
