Hi dave , I have just bought bobs course, so I am a total newbe. I managed to buy a boley 1 ww lathe from an old watch maker. It has been sitting around in his garage for a considerable amount of time. I got it home and started to clean it, it came with a three jaw chuck fitted to the headstock.I managed to remove the chuck but the arbour is stuck in the headstock and try as a may I cannot get it out. If you could give me some advise I would be grateful, I paid £100 for it with a motor. I would hate to have to scrap it and start all over. I have never used a lathe so totally lost.
I hope you can help
Alan
