Hi all, I am the proud owner of a 10EE 1943 round dial lathe. Unfortunately the other day I was trying to part some 2" aluminum and it did not go well. The tool - a standard knife parting tool in an Aloris type tool post, dug in and the blade snapped right off. Investigating why this happened, knowing that dig ins with parting tools are not unheard of, I found that I can move the cross slide by hand almost 1/8 of an inch! Side to side movement is not an issue. So I decided to remove the cross slide to see what the issue was.. it seems that the lead screw / nut on the cross slide is the problem. I need to diagnose further and want to remove the lead screw from the cross slide assembly. Don't want to remove more than necessary. Just the crossslide lead screw and nut. Can anyone give me a step by step on how to do this without damaging anything> Your help is much appreciated.. !
