Delta 46-715

>Hello all,

My lathe, a Delta 46-715, has started to vibrate like crazy (i.e. when I put my extension rod for my beall buffing system on it probably has a variance of 3/8 ths inches on either side). I know there has been much derogatory said about this lathe but I got mine before all that came out. Until this Christmas it has been a good lathe with very little vibration. Anyway, here is my question. It seems to me that Bill Boehm (sp) figured out the problem with these lathes and published a faily in-depth solution, something to do with a pulley problem. I have seached the archives here and at AAW and can't find anything. Does anybody know if this exists? Thanks for your help.

Jim
