Hello and thank you to all the veterans who give of themseleves to help ignorant newbies such as myself. I've had the clausing 4914 lathe for roughly 5 months and it's been an amazing experience learning and utilizing such. Please forgive any incorrect terminology I may use while trying to explain what i percieve to be a problem. I posted two videos below of what I'm seeing and I'm not certain how worried I should be or how best to go about correcting sich if needed. I came across this "wobbling oiler/gear while cleaning and regressing the gears. Behind the gear is also what appears to be a brass "bushing" which seems to hesitate and does not spin in synchronization to the gear infront of it. It seems to operate as it should but then again, i have never operated any other lathe. There is a very slight shaking of the lathe at certain speeds w/ various chucked materials. Any and all shared wisdom would be greatly appreciated and I thank you in advance.
