Question about Tools & Hardware - Others
When running the lathe the headstock makes a lot of noise as if a gearbox was out of oil. It's so noisy that I have to wear ear defenders when using the lathe. Is this normal?
Usually not. Is lathe leveled, and base secured, check for soft feet. This can set up vibration and load bearings.If motor is belt drive check belt condition, pulley alignment, belt tension.
