Lathe problem/question

Charlie Anderson
>I have a Jet 1236. I currently have a 10" bowl mounted in a SuperNova chuck.

My problem is that I'm unable to turn the bowl round. If I use a pencil to mark the bowl, the mark is only on half (or so) of the bowl.

I also noticed that if I put a dead center in the headstock, I can see a slight movement in the point of the dead center.

I haven't had this problem all the time but don't know when it began.

Can anyone tell me a possible solution?

(The wife isn't buying into the 'I need a better lathe' story)
