H-4 Keep Your Lathe In Trim

How to adjust headstock spindle bearings, splice a belt,  adjust tailstock set-over, adjust dovetail gibs, and more. This is a scan of the 1944 South Bend Lathe Works bulletin H-4  Keep Your Lathe In Trim. It covers most of the adjustments that will keep your lathe running for years.  I have it printed out and slipped into vinyl page protectors in a 3 ring binder by my lathe. It makes a great reference manual.

Edit-Update 10/2010: The manual originally posted here has been replaced by a better .PDF version and can now be found along with the other three South Bend bulletins.
