GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

This machine must be grounded while in use to protect the operator from electric shock.

1. All grounded, cord-connectedmachines:

In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This machine is equipped with an electric cord having an equipment-groundingconductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into a matching outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.

Do not modify the plug provided - if it will not fit the outlet, have the proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

Improper connection of the equipment-groundingconductor can result in risk of electric shock. The conductor with insulation having an outer surface that is green with or without yellow stripes is theequipment-groundingconductor. If repair or replacement of the electric cord or plug is necessary, do not connect theequipment-groundingconductor to a live terminal.

Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel if the grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if in doubt as to whether the machine is properly grounded.

Use only 3-wireextension cords that have3-pronggrounding type plugs and matching3-conductorreceptacles that accept the machine’s plug, as shown in Fig. A.

Repair or replace damaged or worn cord immediately.

2. Grounded, cord-connectedmachines intended for use on a supply circuit having a nominal rating less than 150 volts:

If the machine is intended for use on a circuit that has an outlet that looks like the one illustrated in Fig. A, the machine will have a grounding plug that looks like the plug illustrated in Fig. A. A temporary adapter, which looks like the adapter illustrated in Fig. B, may be used to connect this plug to a matching2-conductorreceptacle as shown in Fig. B if a properly grounded outlet is not available. The temporary adapter should be used only until a properly grounded outlet can be installed by a qualified electrician. Thegreen-coloredrigid ear, lug, and the like, extending from the adapter must be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly grounded outlet box. Whenever the adapter is used, it must be held in place with a metal screw.

NOTE: In Canada, the use of a temporary adapter is not permitted by the Canadian Electric Code.

IN ALL CASES, MAKE CERTAIN THAT THE RECEPTACLE IN QUESTION IS PROPERLY GROUNDED. IF YOU ARE NOT SURE, HAVE A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN CHECK THE RECEPTACLE.

EXTENSION CORDS

Use proper extension cords. Make sure your extension cord is in good condition and is a3-wireextension cord which has a3-pronggrounding type plug and matching receptacle which will accept the machine’s plug. When using an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to carry the current of the machine. An undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage, resulting in loss of power and overheating. Fig.D-1shows the correct gauge to use depending on the cord length. If in doubt, use the next heavier gauge. The smaller the gauge number, the heavier the cord.

HEADSTOCK SPUR CENTER

The 46-715comes with a faceplate attached. Before inserting the spur center in the spindle, remove this faceplate. Insert the knockout bar (A) Fig. 10 in the side hole of the spindle (B) Fig. 10 to hold the spindle in place. Use the supplied wrench (C) Fig. 10 to loosen the faceplate. Remove the faceplate (D) by turning itcounter-clockwisewith your hand. The spur center (A) Fig.11 is equipped with a No. 2 Morse Taper shank. Insert this shank into the headstock spindle (B).

NOTE: Before inserting the spur center (A), clean both the shank of the spur center and the inside of the headstock spindle to remove any grease or debris. To remove the tapered shank spur center (A) Fig. 11 from the headstock spindle (B) Fig. 11, use the knockout bar

(C) Fig. 12 through the hole (D) in the opposite end of the spindle to push the spur center out.

IMPORTANT: Never drive the workpiece into the spur center when it is mounted in the headstock.

See instructions on setting the spur center into the workpiece in the “OPERATION“ section of this manual under “CENTERING THE WORK.”

TAILSTOCK LIVE CENTER

The tailstock live center (A) Fig. 13, supplied with your lathe, is equipped with a No. 2 Morse Taper shank.

NOTE: Before inserting the live center, clean both the shank and the inside of the tailstock to remove any grease or debris. To remove the live center (A) from the tailstock spindle (B), use the knockout bar (C) Fig. 12 (supplied) through the hole (D) in the opposite end of the spindle.

ADJUSTING CLAMPS ON THE HEADSTOCK AND TAILSTOCK

The headstock and tailstock can be moved along the lathe bed. A downward push on the handle (A) Fig. 14 locks the mechanism, while an upward movement of the handle releases the securing action. The clamps are pre-setat the factory. However, should either need adjusting, use an 11/16” wrench to slightly loosen or tighten the nut (A) Fig. 16 on the tailstock.

NOTE: Clamp the headstock and tailstock firmly while operating the lathe.
