I bought a watchmaker lathe last summer from a machinist i worked with for cheap. Could not pass up on my first ever lathe. It is a G Boley with watchcraft motor. It came with spring winder, poising tool, selection of staking tools, large seitz jewel setting tool, ww collets, rheostat. Also cam with a homemade compound slide. Slide is stamped on backside with maker and labeled pallet resurface tool. I may try to modify into to hold graving tool. not sure what how it is used. Cutter hight is to low as it is. I am finding that the reverse switch on the motor is not wanting to work in one direction. Has anyone taken one of these motors apart? I'm thinking that I will just put a stand alone reverse switch on it.
