Its a German made Optimum approx. 26 inch center distance. I was running th
e power feed at high speed, turning a wood bowl, and let the carriage hit t
he work. Everything works, but the carriage handwheel is hard to turn and n
ot smooth - worse closer to the chuck, where it happened. Everything looks
normal (rack, gears, etc.), and the power feed works fine. I haven't checke
d parallelism or anything yet. Where should I start?
