Re: Lathe horizontal drive motor and pulleys

I confirm (on my 9A) that the flat countershaft pulley makes changing speeds much easier (almost pleasant). I also find that the V belt needs to be quite accurate and straight otherwise it wanders side to side and tends to rub on one side. This happens especially when the belt is cold. I had to "file" the belt sides to straighten its tracking. Countershaft alignment is also important.
