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.February 19, 2014 at 10:55 pm #55836
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.

Looks simple enough,,what kind of oil is recomendedFebruary 20, 2014 at 6:39 am #55838
I use hydraulic oilFebruary 20, 2014 at 12:04 pm #55839
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.February 20, 2014 at 11:01 pm #55840
My Webster Whitcomb 8mm head all cleaned oiled and ready to go. You may notice it has the index pin. It was missing and i couldnt have that so i made a new one. Ill probly never use it but i couldnt have a missing part. LolFebruary 21, 2014 at 6:34 am #55841
Nice job, the pin looks great. Do you have another lathe?February 21, 2014 at 11:30 am #55842
Not mine, but i did this at work. I operate a CNC lathe.
