-**Accessories:​**+=== Unique Quirks ===
  
-**Drive Centre**+  - The lathe must be started //and stopped// on its lowest speed. You can only change the speed while it is running so it is important to stop it in its lowest speed otherwise you won't be able to start it on its lowest speed. Starting on the lowest speed puts less strain on the capacitor which starts the motor and reduces the chances of it stalling. The capacitor has died once and was replaced with one with half the capacitance. If it does stall, a quick spin of the head and it should start moving! 
 +  - The only other thing that makes this lathe different from most is the ability to rotate the headstock to allow you to turn larger blanks. The head rotates which allows to spin huge pieces. If you do this you will need to remove and re-locate the tool arm and rest on the small rail located to the left of the headstock and attach the extension arm (big bit of metal with pins on - located on lathe shelf) to allow you swing the rest into the correct position. 
 +  - Rarely the speed selector seems to malfunction and lathe does not increase/​decrease in speed. This is due to the variable adjusting pulleys inside which can get clogged with dust and grime - luckily this is a very simple fix and takes about 10 minutes. 
 +    - isolate the power 
 +    - remove the cover on the back of the headstock (3 screws) 
 +    - remove c-clip, washer and spring on pulley. 
 +    - apply WD-40 and gently remove the 2 part pulley from shaft (DO NOT be tempted to hit the pulley with anything - it is cast iron and will shatter - you can see someone has taken a chunk out of it already) 
 +    - clean pulley teeth and de-burr if required 
 +    - clean motor shaft and replace pulley, spring, washer and c-clip 
 +    - replace motor cover
