    Hi, I just picked up a 1984 Honden L-450 mini bench lathe. Looks to be 8 x 18". It's in great condition, minimal- maybe no wear. Having an issue where I cannot get the small V belt to reach across the pulleys for the higher spindle speeds. Seems like the belt is too short or something? Also, there is no information for threading on the front placard that shows spindle speed's. Does have power feed, does anyone know if this is capable of doing threads and if so – I need gears- seems about impossible to find parts for this. Any ideas? Does anyone have one of these? I pulled a manual on line for an "Emco compact 8" looks to be very similar.

    --- so, I've done a couple of hours of research and have found nothing. It seems like this is the only Honden L – 450 in the world .
