Welcome to the Atlas Forum. There are or have been a few others with the same or a similar machine.

Hi guys,

Thanks for the welcome. I bought this lathe to do some machining on motorcycles IE pike nuts and other parts as required.

It seems now that i have to do more work to the lathe than on the lathe.

Will post parts as i make them

Yes, that seems to be all too typical. Most of the older model Atlas and Atlas clone machines tend to have been used for years or even decades in a production environment, and tend to have considerable wear in certain areas. Those that don't tend to have had PO's who "fixed" them in generally unacceptable ways.
