This is a solid machine and should give you many years of trouble free service. Back when I was turning on one, someone suggested that the reeves drive be "run through the gears" once each session, meaning that it should be run up from slow to fast and back with no load. I'm not sure that following this advise was the reason, but the lathe always performed well. Hope you have fun and stay safe.
