In the event anyone who commented returns for follow up, thank you. As for the lathe being a Horrible Freight, yep, right on the money.
I appreciate all suggestions and will attempt to check all conditions for possible solution, except of course getting another lathe.

Thanks all for the responses.

If your absolutely set on that lathe for now I recommend you replace the bearings with some newer sealed one.
They wouldn’t cost you much and most likely they will be a million times better then the ones that are in there.
I have a older craftsman lathe of the same style and it’s ok for Small stuff. Small bowls,knobs and such only.

Can you post some of your turnings Johns and make a believer out me. I have contempt for anything horrible freight.

Good Luck
