WARNING! Your 10L has simple bronze bearings. It was NEVER designed to be run at more than 1500 rpm, and in the HTRAL book, you can achieve this spindle speed on a 10L only if you have dual size V belt, BUT they warn to not use back gears at this spindle speed. These are slow speed lathes, respect their limitations. Changing speeds via the belt takes but a minute.  Pay attention to your pulley sizes.
