Hi all , I have just added to my machining capability by purchasing a used Pultra 17/50 micro lathe. I bought it on the basis of photographs and having received the machine , although I am happy with it , I find that the compound slide does not fit the bed , even though it looks identical to the correct part. Does anyone have a similar machine ? at least one member does if they are still active. Could anyone post a picture of the under-side of the slide so that I can see how it should locate onto the bed , I know it is secured with a large thumb-screw. thanks in anticipation Abby.
