Turning Archive 2008
>While in the shop doing a bit of turning this evening, my lathe started doing something odd. The headstock seems to be jumping back and forth? I will be turning and all of a sudden, the workpiece wil jump toward the tailstock and back again. I have a Jet mini lathe and was using a nova chuck atthe time. At first it seemed like the chuck had come unscrewed a little but then I notice that the whole thing was moving? Has anyone experienced this before and am I getting ready to have a lathe meltdown or something? The thing is only like two or three years old?
Thanks for any input!
