- Mar 1, 2000Hi, this is a dumb thing to ask, but am I right in thinking the power feed
parallel to the bed can only be effected by closing the half-nut, as if
threading? I would so much like to be told that there is a mechanism to
engage the groove in the screw, so as not to wear the screw unduly.
Mine has a few bits missing, there is a shaft with no knob almost directly
under the compound rest, which I suppose is for engaging the transverse
power feed? There at present are the large handwheel for manually moving
the apron along the bed, and the lever at the right for engaging the
half-nut. The shaft without a knob is in the centre of the apron. There
is no lever with a black plastic ball in that location, as shown in a
picture of the lathe.
