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 to do?
Best regards, Dave Colliver.
