- Apr 9, 2014Can you repeat the model number of your lathe? For some reason I though you had a cabinet (under drive) model. I may be confusing you with someone else.

What diameter is the ball and spring oiler and at what position is it when the back gear is engaged? disengaged?
I think I'll have to drill a hole in the eccentric and install an oiler myself. I hate to have that shaft run dry. I looked at the history of the lathe and it looks like that before there was an under cabinet drive, the back gear shaft was lubricated by a plug in the center of the shaft lengthwise. I wonder if squirting oil in one end is really sufficient to get oil to the bushings.
