9" southbend granny gear
- I have a 9 inch southben lathe, model c I think,. The serial numbers
have been erased and I can only find 40044 on the tailstock end.
Anyway, the back gear is extremely tight. I can engage it and turn
the grear by levering a bar in the chuck and turning it, but I canot
turn it with the motor. the belt either spins or comes off. Is this
normal, or am I doinng something wrong. Please help me guys!
