Q:

removing a morse taper

A:

I did some research on the Craftsman Lathe Model 113.23881 but was not able to find information on removing the taper spur center from the spindle. Your expert will be able to help answer your question. It may take two business days. I do hope that everything works out with the lathe.

Thank you for your question. I am sorry you are having a problem with removing the drive spur. The spindle should have a hole all the way through it. First, open the cover where the drive belt is. Then look in the center of the top pulley. If you see a hole in the center of the spindle shaft you can drive the spur out with a long punch/bolt and a hammer. Place the punch into the hole so it sits on the end of the spur and give it a tap with the hammer. It should come loose. You may have to give a harder tap if it does not come loose at first. To reinstall the spur, slide it back into the spindle and tap the end of it with a block of wood.  I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.  Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark

Thanks for checking. I saw on Sears that the manual is no longer made. I was hoping someone could direct me to an "archive" type website for old user manuals or maybe someone has one handy. Thanks again!

I've got the old Craftsman 1973- 1974 catalog listing your wood lathe. Any headstock spindle accessories will need to have 3/4-16 threads in them. The new model Craftsman lathes use 1-8 threads. It was built by Emerson tools and looks like a good solid unit.

Thank you for your request for a manual for your lathe model 113.23851.

I am sorry but I could not find a manual for your specific model lathe.

I did find one for a 113.23881 and I will send that to you in hopes that it will give you some information about the lathe. This model was from the late 60's to early 70's.

I have sent the 113.23881 manual to your e-mail address.
