    Default Sheraton Defiance cross slide removal

    Having just recently acquired a Sheraton Defiance lathe, I'm trying to figure out how I can remove the cross slide so I can give it a good clean and service. I've removed the screw that secures the nut but the nut seems to have a spigot on it and it would only come free if the cross slide was raised about 5mm. Surely you don't have to remove the gib strip in order to remove the cross slide? Any advice would be appreciated.

    Hi Straydog01,

    On my Myford, you just wind the handle until it slides off. The nut on mine is also the gear for the power cross feed. The gibs are also captive, you have to remove the four securing screws to remove the gibs.
    Best Regards:

    Hi BaronJ
    Definitely cant just wind it off. It comes up against a stop in both directions. It looks like the gib needs to be removed but that then means its more time consuming to get it set up again. I was hoping it was simpler than that.
    I would really like to find a manual for this lathe but so far no luck.
