2.
NEVER connect plug to power source until all of the assembly steps have been completed.
3.
Check that your supply voltage and grounding are correct.
4.
Do not use the lathe in a damp or wet location.
5.
Keep lathe clean and lightly oiled.
6.
Make sure the belt, pulley, and control box are adequately guarded at all times.
7.
Always remove any tools, chuck keys, toggle bars, etc. when you are finished with them.
8.
Keep the work area well lit and provide adequate ventilation and workspace.
9.
Keep young children and bystanders at a safe distance from the lathe.
10.
Do not force the lathe to do more than what it is designed to do.
11.
Do not wear loose clothing, jewelry, or neckties which could get caught in revolving parts. It is recommended that long hair be
restrained.
12.
Safety eye wear should be worn at all times. Also, it is recommended to a use of face or dust mask during lathe operation.
13.
Attach all workpieces securely to the lathe, whether between centers, on face plates, or in chucks, etc.
14.
For best results be sure to keep turning tools sharp, clean, and free from rust.
15.
Use only three wire extension cords that have 3-prong grounding type plugs and 3-hole receptacles that accept the tool's plug.

MULTI-POSITIONING CONTROL BOX
FOR THE #TCLPROVS LATHE
m The control box for the TCLPROVS is easily mounted
on the bottom of the bed. This is completed by using the
screws that also mount it to the rear of the bed and using
the provided mounting plate.
m The control box for the TCLPROVS can also be easily
mounted anywhere that is convenient for you. The 3' cord
from the motor to the control box allows you that flexibility.
MOUNTING AND CHANGING
THE SPEED CONTROL
We have packed the speed cotrol box separately to prevent damage. Unpack the speed control box and mount on to the back of the
headstock below the hinge under the hand wheel (the control box can be mounted elsewhere, mounting screws and washers
included). Once mounting is complete, connect to the plug of the control box to the plug of the motor.
The TCLPROVS is fitted with a 3-step pulley set-up which allows for the ranges of speed. See Speed Chart below.
Speed Chart
CHANGING
THE BELT POSITION
Make sure that the lathe is turned off or unplugged. Open the belt
door on the headstock. Loosen the ratchet handle to allow the
motor plate to swivel upwards. Swing the control box to the side
for access to the motor pulley. To change the speed move the belt
drive from one pulley to another. (NOTE: Always go from
the larger pulley to the smaller pulley) After moving
the belt, move down and tighten the motor pulley with the
ratchet handle– this also tightens the belt. Turn your lathe's
power on, and make sure that the belt is running consistently in
its parallel groove. If all is smooth, turn the power off, reattach
the control box and the belt door to its original position

Note: These speeds can vary with different wood species and the skill of the operator. Unbalanced pieces generally should be turned
on speeds lower than those recommended above.
SANDING
Use the fastest speed possible without burning the wood.
POLISHING & FINISHING
Generally finishing can be done at faster speeds than turning.
BELT, SPINDLE AND BEARING REPLACEMENT
FOR THE #TCLPROVS LATHE
To change the belt (#53), spindle (#14), or bearings (#4) for the lathe, you must first loosen the two set screws (#2) and hand wheel (#1).
Next remove the upper access door (#7) and knob (#8) loosen the set screw (#69) on the drive pulley (#25).
Tap out the spindle using a mallet. If you do not have a mallet, place a block of wood against the spindle and tap with a hammer. To get
the spindle completely out, use a flat head screwdriver to punch it the rest of the way. Be careful not to damage the bearings or the threads.
Replace the bearings, spindle or belt as required.
BELT: You need only to move the spindle enough to slide a new belt on.
SPINDLE: You must knock the spindle completely out through both bearings.
BEARINGS: After removal of the spindle, completely – knock out the bearings from the inside of the headstock. This is best
accomplished by inserting a long rod or screwdriver through one bearing inside the headstock toward the opposite
bearing. Tap firmly to remove the bearing from the casting. Do the same for the second bearing.
Please be aware not to damage the retainers (#13) when tapping out the bearing.
Reassemble the new bearings by tapping them into place from the outside. Replace the spindle.
Note: You may have to loosen the ratchet handle (ZTCL3-33 - PARTS #44, #45, #46) to reinstall the spindle pulley (#52), spindle collar
(#3), and belt (#53). Reinstall the hand wheel and set screws. DO NOT tighten the hand wheel against the bearings. Tighten the pulley set
screw and close the access door.
