Default Help with Hudy Executive Automatic Comm Lathe

Just picked up a Hudy Executive Automatic Comm Lathe, and it doesn't seem to be able to travel as far left as it needs to to cut a full com, it also goes to far to the right (as in over the bearing, although the bit sits up high so no *big* worried). Tried adjusing the thumb screw on the right as far as it can go but it still doesn't travel far enough to the left ...anyone know how to get it to move more to the left?

If it's like my Tech lathe, then you may need to move both blocks over a tad. Just losen up the the screws on the bottom and slide the over.

Which blocks? there is no blocks, just some set screws you can loosen and "move the wire to the left" ...I've moved it over as far as I can.

I was refering to the blocks the arm sets on, either "V" blocks or bearing blocks. They should be mounted with screws that go through the slots on the base. I have used one but can't remeber much about it. Let me check the xray site to see if I can remeber a bit more.

Try putting the arm in the other way and winding the cutting tool all the way back to the right, sounds like you are using it backwards.

Wow, I didn't think that thing would go that far over. Look at the pics of how the arm sits in there to make sure that your sitting it up right.

Yep I've move the V guide deals over to the right as far as I can, and the com is in there correctly.

I got it ....I opened the cover up (where the slave motor, etc are) and there were 2 blocks, 1 limits left travel the other right travel, moved them around a bit and now it's all good. They were way squished over to the right ...they must have been indulging in Slovakian Bilge Wine at nthe factory when they put this one together!!

...thx for the help!!
