Default JET jwl-1236 issue

Hi. I can't, for the life of me, figure out how to remove a part. I recently bought the lathe at an estate sale. The guy who had it was making guitars and it came with a buffer attached to the spindle. On the opposite side of the motor there is a hole that i'm told you use to tap out different accessories but in the hole is a threaded rod that rotates with the spindle. I've tried tapping it but don't want to bend the rod or ruin the teeth on the threaded rod.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I can email you pictures if necessary.

Is the buffer attached with a Jacobs chuck inserted into the spindle?
Anyway it is probably attached by some type of tapered insert and the
rod is used with a washer and nut to hold the taper in so it won't
work out.

Take a pair of vise-grips and hold the rod and unscrew it. It is
probably a piece of all-thread rod which is screwed into the taper.
Unscrew the rod and use the knock out bar to loosen the taper. I
suppose it did come with a knockout rod.

A picture of both ends of the spindle would help.

If the lathe did not come with a knockout bar, any piece of 1/4" steel rod, 12"+ will do.

Lock the spindle with the spindle lock, located on the bed side of the headstock, just to the lower left of the spindle. Then, using the vice grips, unscrew the rod. Assuming its a threaded rod, you can actually grip it, etc.

But before you do, look down the inside of the morse taper on the front side of the of the head stock and see if the former owner wedged a nut or some other device in the morse taper.

If you continue to have problems, yes email pictures of the headstock, the buffer from the side and the headstock from the left side.

how is the buffer attached


did you get the drift rod with the lathe


usually you slide that in and tap on it to push out the buffer

but if the buffer is threaded on to the spindle then you have
unscrew it opposite

Your best bet wound be to use a three leg set of bearing pullers on the buffer and against the headstock .... not a good idea to go whacking some unknown ex user object that has been shoved up the hollow spindle !!!!
