    Can someone lead me to some instructions on disasembling the head and cleaning and oiling it? I would like to read up on it before digging in.

    Mclark,
    Go to Youtube and pull up THE WATCH REPAIR CHANNEL. There is a video showing how to put on a belt and Mark Lovick takes the head apart in the video.

    It came apart easy enough,,,dry as a bone though. The lathe body has Americam Watch company on it, i just noticed the head has Webster Witcomb Hard on it,,i know that means hard bushings but do you think the mismatch head is a problem,,it seems to fit fine on the body.

    Nice job, the pin looks great. Do you have another lathe?
