Feed Direction Lever

NOTICE
NEVER move levers while the lathe is run-
ning, and NEVER force any lever when shift-
ing. If the lever will not engage, rotate the
chuck by hand while keeping light pressure
on the lever. As the chuck rotates it aligns
the gears and the lever will engage.
Your lathe can cut left or right while feeding or
threading, and it can cut across both ways for fac-
ing operations. This feed direction is controlled by
the feed direction lever shown in Figure 25.
When the selection knob is positioned as depict-
ed in Figure 25, the carriage will move to the right
along the bed or the cross feed will travel away
from the operator. The cross feed and longitudinal
feed selection is controlled on the apron.
Figure 25. Feed direction lever.
To reverse the direction of the feeding or thread-
ing operation, stop the lathe, move the feed direc-
tion lever to the right.
When the lever is positioned in the middle, no
direction is selected and all of the drive mecha-
nisms after this point are in neutral.

Feed Rod Lever

NOTICE
NEVER move levers while the lathe is run-
ning, and NEVER force any lever when shift-
ing. If the lever will not engage, rotate the
chuck by hand while keeping light pressure

The feed rod can be selected by moving the lever
to the left as in Figure 26. Use this position for all
feed operations.
When the lever is positioned straight up, no drive
mechanism is selected and the gear train down-
stream is in neutral.
When the lever is moved to the right, the lead
screw is selected for threading operations.
