Minimax duplicator lathe ()

For some reason only part of the post is showing for me in the above:

Here is the remainder:

I shortened up the leads then ran a 230v line.

Now that the lathe was back in use I cut some spindles. They were .020” smaller on be end, regardless of length. After some checking i found that the tailstock did not seat flush, I filed it and with the aid of feeler gauges managed to get it back to flush and aligned to the head stock.

I then reset the duplicator to these new measurements. Knocked it down to .005” difference or less.

Up and running.
