I started cleaning up the lathe, they had sprayed oil on it before they set it outside. It only sat out, under a tarp, for a few days. The compound seemed stuck. I loosened the gibbs adjustment and it came free. I tightened it back down until I couldn't feel any play. I need to get a dial indicator for it I suppose. I was messing with the gear change mechanism and noticed the spindle would stop when it was in a certain position. Turns out there is a broken tooth on one of the gears. I went looking for a replacement and found an easy repair I might try. Now I just need to figure out how to remove the gear.
