Got the spur center freed!!! I was really begining to think it wasn't coming out. Attempts at driving it out through the spendel, and wedging it out were not having any effect. So here is what ended up working. Took 2 lengths of 550 cord and tied a 10 lb weight to the spur center (used clove hitch around spur center and then secured to weight). Placed the spendel assembly on (not in) a bench vise so I could suspend the weight under the spendel assembly to pull on the spur center. Applied a good dose of liquid wrench and let sit for a few hours. With an aluminum rod I was able to drive out the spur center, through the spendel, after just a few trys. What a relief! Now I can try my hand at pen turning.

Thank you for the question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with removing the spur. The spur is tapered and when it is forced into the spindle, it locks tight. I think you have the right idea of driving it out but a wood dowel will absorbs the energy from the hammer blow. I recommend using a long drift punch to drive it out. Hold the long punch against the backend of the spur with a pair of pliers. Then hit the punch with the hammer. It should only take one or two hits to pop it out.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Q:

my new wood lathe's mandrel has a cap on it and i do not know if i need it during use of my lathe or not

A:

Well something that would have this kind of information will be in your owners manual. I know exactly how hard it is to keep track of all the owners manuals in your home but something that is very handy about Manage My Life is that you can find just about any manual on here. All you have to do is go to the top of the page and click on the tab that says "MANUALS" in the search box type in your model number then you manual will be available for you to view. I have attached the link below for you to view while waiting on your response from an expert. Hope this helps!

Thank you for your question. I have checked the manual for your lathe. The spur has to be removed from the lathe first. Then the tapered end of the mandrel should fit into the drive of the lathe. If the plastic cap is on the tapered end of the mandrel, it is most likely for protection and should be removed before installing into the drive. I have provided you with the instructions out of the manual. If the mandrel does not fit into the drive, you may want to take your mandrel to the store to see if they have a floor model to test it in. I hope this is helpful. Please add more information if you need more help.
