I was gifted this amazing lathe that works extremely well! I have been able to turn lamp bases, vases, rolling pins, and so much more! HOWEVER, I would like to try some bowls and need to figure out how to change the spur drive out for the bowl clamp!

I have a plate that screws onto the head-stock, but I need to get the spur off.

The other spurs that I have look like they are just pressed into the head-stock, but I cannot figure out a way to get it out of the head-stock!

Thanks for any support!!!

I would do a search over at http://vintagemachinery.org/ for a copy of your lathe’s owner’s manual to see if it has any info.

Probably you can insert a 3/8 diameter metal rod in the outboard end of the spindle. A firm rap on the rod with a metal hammer should pop that drive center right out. The shank on the drive center is tapered.
