Powermatic 45 index plate
I have a Powermatic 45 which has radial play between the index plate and the headstock. It is only about.020 at the rim but it makes a rattling noise when the lathe runs. There is zero end play in the headstock and the rattle is the only symptom. I've had the lathe for a year and it performs flawlessly. There is excess clearance between the plate and the key in the headstock. I'm very reluctant to "fix" a problem which is so minor. Any owners out there that would care to offer suggestions?
