    1981 C85. The deck is long gone, but it is my snow plow in the winter and faithful companion for yardwork in the summer.

    There's a switch connected to the square rod, when it's pushed or pulled off center it stops the feed (I think the whole drive). I think the mechanism is electrical and the switch is in the tailstock module and if so the headstock (damaged) end can be fairly easily repaired. Brett on PM would know off hand, might ask him.

    If it's mechanical and in the headstock end the repair could be painful. Worth it, but painful.

    I'm not sure how the Rivett works, but on Monarch's lathe you can slide a stop up or down the rod to the position you want and the stop disengages the carriage travel.

    I think he means it is a carriage stop. My 1020F doest have one. I think Monarch 10EE owners call it an ELSR?

    Thanks for the compliments guys, I'm going to do my best to get this looking and running good.
    BTW, I just bought a china made quick change tool post for my Craftsman 10/12" lathe, the tool post on this is an Aloris, go figure!!

    That is a lathe well worth restoring. Contact kpotter on the PM site about what to do about the cross slide stop.

    I hope you can fix the lathe up. Those are not real common lathes,and are truly among the very best ever made.

    I once came across a Rivett over here in Scotland, It was being totally overhauled for a man, by one of the local machine tool rebuild folk, It is a lovely machine Congrats.
