Troubles with Nova 3000

Jorge Castaneda ~ Downeast Maine
>Hi there,
My lathe has several aflictions, the most frequent is the tool rest moving, then sometimes the tailstock too, from day one the head and tail are misalignedby 1/16", both vertically and horizontally and now the head has started to move too, if any of you has found a way to solve any of tese problems, I will be glad to hear how you did it.
Thank you very much
Jorge
ps I fail to mention that there is a vibration forever present, if I tough the tool rest with a tool, it sounds like a tunning fork... have not been able to figure out what causes it.
