    I would buy that lathe, the one in the add. Looks like a 14-40 knock off. JR

      Haha, fast forward to 8:55, tightening the chuck on to the spindle with a hammer. No camlock spindle?

        L-taper, which if done right is actually better.
        I just need one more tool,just one!

          I love the spindle molesting in taper roller bearings, unless thats a typo by the OP. Looks like the tailstock spindle lock needs a spanner. Does the tailstock bed lock need a spanner too, or the lockimg lever out of sight round the back?

                Hindustan lathes are pretty good
                but this one is not one of them.
                But the writing is in another language
                so maybe.

                  Only two levers on gearbox makes the number of threads available without fiddling seem likely to be low. Noticed towing eye on the end of the bed.

                    For as often as I change chucks, I would rather just have an A1 taper and stuff the cams.

                      Stack of gears at about 9:20, so no wide range without a shuffle.

                        While it’s out there the L taper always costs more and is harder to find than cam mount. I really wish my Clausing was cam mount rather than the L for that reason.

                          Here is another one for consideration, belt drive, change gear.



                          Less than $1000.

                          Check the included accessories.

                          Fit and finish looks better than a South Bend!

                            And V-belt drive too so at least they upgraded from flat belts. Add a VFD an it would be fine.

                              Did you notice at 8:33 the chuck mounting hardware protruding out the back of the mounting plate? Safety First!!
