>I am very new to turning. I purchased a jet JWL-1236 lathe that seems to fit my abilities well. Recently I had trouble with the speed control, the lathe does not want to turn slowly. I removed the cover and it seems that when the control lever is rotated that only one split pulley is changing shape and the belt is just spinning loose on the other pulley. Has any one had this problem before and how did they solve it. Any help for a novice would be appreciated.
