>Hi,

I just finished setting my new VL100. The spindle/headstock is fairly noisy, and some grease is migrating out of the bearings on the tailstock side.

I cleaned the pulleys, belts, etc. The motor running alone is quiet.

Can anyone comment on the break-in period for these lathes? Do they run more smoothly after a few hours?

Thanks
Phil
