Happy New Year to all. I have a General 25-100 lathe . The motor stopped and must be removed for repairs. What is the best way to do it? Remove the headstock thanks John

Shouldn’t need to remove the headstock, just disconnect the belt.

Agree with Rick M, looks like can take the motor off without removing the headstock. Looking at the pictures not sure how thou, but not seeing what you see.

I have the same unit, and when mine quit it turned out the hand switch had failed and would not make contact. Once the switch was replace all was good again. Same thing happened to my bandsaw switch, fine dust gets into everything.

Have your say...
