I have just bought a boxford lathe. Not sure of the model number (couldn't
see one). I have just spent all day re-assembling it. Had to take it apart
again twice, then realised I didn't need to. Doh!!!
It was a 3 phase, but has had a single phase motor installed. (I got the 3ph
motor as well, for when my workshop needs to go 3 phase.)
Anyhow, I quickly discovered it was not a screwcutting lathe. Only a minor
irritation, something to watch out for next time...
The power travel seems to be single speed. Is there any way I can adjust the
feed speed. (The feed appears to do reverse as well as forward) If I adjust
the feed speed, could I get screwcutting from it? If so, what would I need
