Hey everyone I'm kind of confused with my Craftsman 101-07403 that I just picked up. I just went through it and tightened everything up and I noticed a set screw on the headstock pulley pack. I'm confused because I don't understand why the set screw is there. If the set screw is tightened to the spindle, when you pull the pin out on the bull gear to the pulley pack and rotate the spindle it still rotates everything because the pulleys are still under power of the belt. It makes the back gear system unoperable. However if the set screw is now screw down under normal turning operations the only thing seeming to be holding everything together is the bull gear pin. Can someone explain this to me. I'm sorry if this doesn't make much sense.
