I have recently bought a coronet no1 lathe and i believe this is a similar model to the record power cl 1. I need some advice on how to adjust the bearings.
Having set up the lathe the motor runs smoothly but when the drive belt is engaged to turn the spindle in the headstock it seems not to run as smoothly as it should. I have applied oil and grease to the parts that are accessible and this has made some improvement. I have tried to take the spindle part out by removing the hex nut on the left hand side in an attempt to oil the bearing, but can see no way in which to remove the spindle part.
Is it possible to remove it and adjust the bearings? Any help /advice would be appreciated.
Many thanks for you time
