The fellers across the pond make a drawbar type retainer.By "under load" I mean with motor running, not with spindle turning.
I keep forgetting the cone heads had threaded spindle noses; the spindle nose on my gear head is a long taper, keyed to work well in reverse.
I wonder if/how lathes with threaded chuck mounts can work with the spindle turning backward at all? I've been finding the ability to turn backward useful but I can see how people live without it.
If I understand the geometry correctly, it looks like that bolt will have a much greater effect on flat belt tension than on V belt tension?So, as the flat belt is tightened, the v-belts from the motor to the transmission loosen...
So as you remove tension from the flat belt (which I always do when I'm finished using my lathes), the v-belts become tighter.
