Got any pics, may have to take the turret apart to fix it.

The top pic is all the way aft with the ram, middle pic is mid stroke and last is forward. It seems like it is "not enough" to strart the rotation. Any help would be great.

Thank you

May have some ware on the rotate lever or the lock isn’t disengaging, ied take it all apart clean / oil everything learn how it works and the problem should jump out at you.

cool. I am certainly not sure how this rotates. There is a sear with a knurled knob that seems to just swing in place. I am pretty sure this is the part that makes it move. Thanks

My Ames lathe turret only unlocks full aft, rotation is optional.

Shouldn't that part have some type of teeth to interface with the cog?
