Springfield Lathe

After the successful test of the headstock and motor, it was finally time to start taking things apart. Most of these photos were taken
simply to record what the parts were and where they went- I have no manual, of course, and this badboy is an order of magnitude more
complicated than the little lathes. While I didn't have to dismantle the headstock (whew!) most everything else got taken pretty down
pretty thoroughly. First up was the geartrain from the spindle and dog-clutch, to the quickchange threading box.
