Lifelong wood worker but got serious after I retired. I do all types of flat work, turning and even some work on the shaving horse. I have a modest detached shop full of too much wood and plenty of tools to turn it into just about anything I want. Craftsman style is my favorite but I also like Shaker and primitive pieces also.

Need some help on my old Delta Milwaukee wood lathe tail stock. The lock bolt/lever freely moves but it doesn’t release making it very hard to advance or retract the quill. Looking at photos I believe my tailstock is referred too as the old style. I have seen a parts diagram but the parts are not identified and show as unavailable. What is in this assembly that is locked up and how do I free it?

I continue to work on my tail stock. The crank assembly unscrewed easily but I had to drive the quill out with a dowel. The lock bolt assembly is STUCK, I have been able to move it only a fraction after soaking with penetrating oil. I need suggestions as I sure do not want to strip threads or bugger something up I can’t replace.
