Hi All -
I've got a older, 1991, Enco 12 X36 gear head lathe. IT's seen it's fair amount of use, but i'm thinking it probably need gone thru, cleaned and everything tightened back up. I know there is a lot of slack in the carriage, cross-slide and a little in the compound rest. Also there is about .005 run out in the headstock. Is there any Enco Lathe forum for Enco owners to discuss specific problems with Enco lathes? Or, are the Enco lathes so generic in construction that about any lathe rebuild procedure would work on them?
I think this lathe has a lot of potential and, best of all, i don't owe anything on it.
