Lester Gillett/Independence Mo
>I have the Delta 14/40 lathe and the spindle threws at too long.
I got a Nova Midi chuck for Christmas but when i thred it on the
jaw slides hit the spindle be for it bottoms out on the shoulder.
I tried useing a platic washer but it still hits be for tighing
up on the washer, Has any one had this proublem? I am going to
call Delta repair center and see what they say. Do you think i can
put a nut on the spindle and cut some of it off then clean up the
end? Don't want to mess it up so will see what any one says or
Delta befor doing any thing.
