1.0 SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: WHEN USING ELECTRIC TOOLS, BASIC SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
SHOULD ALWAYS BE FOLLOWED TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC
SHOCK, AND PERSONAL INJURY INCLUDING THE FOLLOWING ITEMS:
G801-022510
1.1
GROUND THE LATHE. The Lathe must be grounded while in use to protect the user
from electric shock. Plug into a three-hole grounded receptacle. If an adapter is used to
accommodate a two-hole receptacle, the grounding lug must be connected to a known
ground. Never remove the third prong. If in doubt, have a licensed electrician check the
receptacle for PROPER GROUNDING and POLARITY.
1.2
HANDLE WITH DRY HANDS. Never handle the plug, power cord, Lathe or Spindle with
wet hands.
1.3
DISCONNECT THE POWER CORD. Before servicing, unplug the power cord to
prevent electric shock or unintentional starting.
1.4
ALWAYS USE SAFETY GLASSES. Wear industrial certified safety glasses for ALL
work and maintenance. In addition, always put the clear safety shield between the
Spindle and your face for protection in case of tool breakage.
1.5
SECURE LOOSE ARTICLES. Fasten long hair. Do not wear loose clothing, necktie or
jewelry. They can get caught in rotating parts.
1.6
USE PARTICLE MASK when there is dust or particles in the air.
1.7
ALWAYS KEEP A TOOL IN THE COLLET. Never operate the unit without a tool.
1.8
DO NOT EXCEED THE MAXIMUM OPERATING SPEED OF THE TOOL. Use ONLY
tools, parting disks or polishing wheels that are rated above the speed of your spindle.
Insufficiently rated tools may break apart, bend or come loose causing serious personal
injury.
1.9
MAINTAIN THE WHEEL OR TOOL. Never operate with a damaged or bent tool. It
could break apart or come loose causing serious personal injury.
1.10
CHECK TOOL IS SECURE. Insert the tool shank into the collet to the MAXIMUM depth
that will allow free rotation of the tool. An extended tool is likely to break or bend causing
serious personal injury. Always check that the tool is securely held in the collet.
1.11
KEEP CHILDREN AWAY. All visitors should be kept a safe distance from the work
area. Do not run the unit unattended.
1.12
MAINTAIN THE UNIT. Inspect periodically for damaged or worn parts. Follow the
instructions for maintenance. Don't use if the power cord, lathe, switch, belt or other
parts are in poor condition. Don't use if the unit has been dropped, damaged, or
exposed to water. Have a qualified service person inspect and replace parts when
necessary.

5.0 OPERATION
WARNING:
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE OPERATING. FAILURE TO
COMPLY WITH INSTRUCTIONS COULD RESULT IN SEVERE PERSONAL INJURY
AND/OR PROPERTY DAMAGE.
CAUTION: The High Speed Spindle is driven by a belt that increases the speed by seven
times the Lathe speed. When the Lathe is on LOW (1725 RPM), the Spindle runs at 12,000
RPM! When the Lathe is on HIGH (3450 RPM), the Spindle runs at 24,000 RPM! Because
of these high speeds, it is extremely important to take the following precautions:
5.1
HIGH SPEED PRECAUTIONS
5.1.1
Use ONLY tools that are rated above the speed of the Spindle. Always consult the tool manufacturer's literature
for the maximum operating speed of the tool. For example, a thin parting disk with a diameter of 1-1/2" rated for
25,000 RPM is safe to use on either high or low speed. Heavier or larger diameter tools than this, however, are
probably rated for lower speeds and are extremely dangerous if operated over their rated speed.
Make sure the tool is perfectly straight. A slightly bent tool will bend sharply, break or fly out of the collet.
Insert the tool shank into the collet to the maximum depth that will allow free rotation of the tool. Larger
diameter and heavier tools especially must be held very closely to the collet.
Do not use excessive force on the tool.
5.1.2
5.1.3
5.1.4
5.2
GENERAL OPERATION
CAUTION: Always wear industrial certified
safety glasses for all work and maintenance.
CAUTION: Always put the clear safety shield
between the Spindle and your face for protection in
case of tool breakage.
5.2.1
Always keep a tool in the collet. The Spindle may be
damaged if the collet is closed without a tool.
To run the Lathe at HIGH speed, always switch to LOW first
until the Lathe is up to speed, then switch to HIGH. Do not
switch directly from OFF to HIGH.
Work is done with the handle in the operating position at
approximately 5:00 o'clock. See Figure 3.
The clutch disengages when the handle is moved clockwise
to approximately 6:00 o'clock (straight down).
Figure 3.
The brake is applied when the handle is moved to
approximately 7:30 o'clock.
The collet opens when the handle is moved to 9:00 o'clock (straight back).

6.0 MAINTENANCE
CAUTION: The bearings in the WELLS High Speed Spindle are permanently lubricated
with special compounds. If anything enters the bearings, they will be damaged. KEEP OIL,
SOLVENT AND COMPRESSED AIR AWAY from the WELLS High Speed Spindle.
CAUTION: There are no user serviceable parts inside the Spindle except as described
below. DO NOT DISASSEMBLE the Spindle.
6.1
RUNNING HOT
A WELLS High Speed Spindle may run hot for several reasons:
6.1.
1A new or rebuilt Spindle will run hot when first put into operation until the bearings are broken in.
This condition may last several days depending upon the amount of use.
A worn or loose collet or a stop that is too long may cause tools to slip. The brake may drag causing
the collet to spin inside the collet body. The overheating will be noticed at the collet and front of the
collet body. If the tools slips, follow the procedures in section 6.3, FITTING A STOP TO ADJUST
THE COLLET DIAMETER.
6.1.2
6.2
CLEANING THE COLLET (MONTHLY)
To prevent the collet from sticking and slipping, periodic cleaning and lubrication is essential.
Neglected collets can get frozen into the shaft requiring factory service.
6.2.1
6.2.2
Turn off the Lathe and disconnect the power cord.
Use a 3/32" hex wrench to loosen the set screw that holds the handle and remove the collet wrench.
See Figure 4.
6.2.3 Insert a 3/32" rod into the hole in the collet wrench to make a tee handle.
6.2.4 Move the handle to the open collet position (9:00 o'clock). Remove the tool.
6.2.5 Insert the collet wrench into the collet and turn counterclockwise to unscrew. If the collet turns but
will not unscrew, see section 6.4, REMOVING A STUCK COLLET.
6.2.6 Remove the collet. Remove the small brass stop tube behind the collet with the stop removing tool
provided in the accessory kit or a size #1 screw extractor (Easyout).
6.2.7 Wash the collet and stop tube in solvent. Solvent may be used on these parts ONLY when removed
from the collet body. Dry the collet and stop tube thoroughly.
6.2.8 Clean the inside of the collet body so the collet will seat against the stop properly. Clean the threads
using the tube brush provided in the accessory kit. Rotate the brush into the threads a few times.
Use a pipe cleaner or Q-tip to clean out all the debris in the bottom of the hole. Do not use solvent
here.
6.2.9 Put a THIN film of grease or Vaseline on the outside of the collet including the threads. DO NOT use
oil.
6.2.10 Insert the stop tube and collet then tighten with the collet wrench.
6.2.11 Insert a tool into the collet and put the handle into the operating position.
6.2.12 Put the collet wrench in the end of the handle and tighten the set screw. Connect the power cord.
CAUTION: Do not run the Spindle without a collet.

Figure 4.
6.3
FITTING A STOP TO ADJUST THE COLLET DIAMETER
When the collet wears, tools may slip. The brake may drag causing the collet to spin inside the collet
body. A shorter stop must be installed to compensate for the wear. The shorter stop will allow the
collet to thread further into the collet body so it grips more tightly. A set of 6 stops of different lengths
(S152) is included with the accessory kit.
6.3.1
6.3.2
Follow steps 6.2.1 through 6.2.10 for CLEANING THE COLLET.
Make sure that the handle is in the open collet position (9:00 o'clock straight back). Insert a tool with
the correct size shaft into the collet. If it is loose, remove the collet and replace the stop tube with the
next shorter size. Check the fit again. If it is still loose, install a shorter stop tube. If it is too tight,
install the next longer size. Install the shortest stop tube that will allow the tool to just slip into the
collet.
With a tool in the collet, put the handle into the operating position. The collet should protrude a little
from the face of the collet body. If it is flush or recessed, the collet is worn out and must be replaced.
Put the collet wrench in the end of the handle and tighten the set screw. Connect the power cord.
If the collet still slips or overheats, replace the collet. Follow the procedure above for fitting a stop
when a new collet is installed.
6.3.3
6.3.4
6.3.5
6.4
REMOVING A STUCK COLLET
If the Spindle is run without a tool in the collet
or the collet is not cleaned and lubricated
periodically it may get stuck in the spindle
shaft. The collet may turn but not unscrew.
6.4.1
6.4.2
Turn off the Lathe and disconnect power cord.
Move the handle to the open collet position
(9:00 o'clock). Remove the tool.
Insert the collet wrench. Tap the end of the
collet wrench LIGHTLY while turning the collet
wrench counterclockwise. See Figure 5.
If the collet cannot be removed by this method,
the Spindle must be sent in for factory service.

6.5
BELT MAINTENANCE
The life of spindle bearings, motor bearings and pulleys are greatly affected by the tension of the
belt. If the tension is too great, stress is put on the bearings that will considerably shorten their life. If
the tension is too little, the belt will slip wearing both the belt and pulleys or will cause noise and
vibration.
6.5.1
Check the tension of the belt regularly. Loosen the lock nut handle and let the weight of the Spindle
tighten the belt. Do not apply additional pressure. The weight is sufficient to tighten the belt to the
proper tension. Tighten the lock nut handle.
Belts become impregnated with grinding dust and may be replaced periodically to extend pulley life.
The frequency depends on the type of dust and the severity of service. If a belt has cracks or is
frayed, it should be replaced.
6.5.2
6.6
SPINDLE PULLEY REPLACEMENT
Spindle pulleys should be replaced when
the vees are worn to a sharp edge. A worn
pulley can drastically reduce belt life.
6.6.1
6.6.2
Disconnect the power cord.
Remove the two spindle mounting screws
and remove the Spindle.
Insert a 1/8" hex wrench into the end of the
spindle shaft and loosen the pulley jam nut
with a 1/2" box wrench.
Install the new pulley and tighten the pulley
jam nut.
Loosen the height adjustment handle.
Rotate the bracket to the position pictured
in Figure 6 and tighten the handle.
Loosen the lock nut handle, lift the bracket
until it stops and tighten the handle.
Figure 6.
Install the Spindle with the rubber mounting
pad between the Spindle and the bracket.
Tighten the mounting screws alternately until the rubber bushings just begin to compress. Do not
over tighten.
Install the belt over the motor pulley and the spindle pulley. Loosen the lock nut handle and let the
weight of the Spindle tighten the belt. Do not apply additional pressure. The weight is sufficient to
tighten the belt to the proper tension. Tighten the lock nut handle.

MOTOR PULLEY RECROWNING
When the edge of the motor pulley becomes worn so there are sharp vees, it should be replaced or
sent to WELLS DENTAL, INC. to be recrowned.
6.7.1
6.7.2
6.7.3
Disconnect the power cord.
Loosen the lock nut handle and remove the belt.
Center the large hole in the bracket with the pulley so it can be removed. Tighten the lock nut
handle.
Loosen the height adjustment handle and rotate the bracket so the Spindle is at the top and to the
back. See Figure 7. Insert the long 1/8" hex wrench through the access hole and loosen the set
screw in the motor pulley hub. Remove the motor pulley. (Use a screw driver through the access
hole to pry the pulley outward.)

To install the new or recrowned pulley, first
rotate the lathe shaft so the flat faces the
access hole. See Figure 7.
Slide the motor pulley onto the shaft with
the hub on the inside.
Keep the flat aligned with the access hole
and rotate the pulley so the set screw will
tighten on the flat.
Tighten the set screw with the long 1/8"
hex wrench then back it off a just a little so
the pulley can slide.
Place the belt over the spindle pulley and
the motor pulley. Slide the motor pulley in
or out until the belt is aligned.
Loosen the lock nut handle and pull the
Spindle forward to tighten the belt. Tighten
the lock nut handle.
Turn the Lathe shaft until the motor pulley Figure 7. Remove and install the motor pulley
completes a full revolution. Check the
alignment of the belt. Move the pulley in or
out so the belt tracks along the center of the motor pulley.
Tighten the set screw onto the flat with the long 1/8" hex wrench. Again, check that the belt tracks
along the center of the motor pulley. If necessary, loosen the set screw and re-align the motor
pulley. Finally tighten the set screw securely using a pair of pliers on the hex wrench.
Loosen the height adjustment handle and position the Spindle as illustrated in Figure 6.
Loosen the lock nut handle and let the weight of the Spindle tighten the belt.
Make sure a tool or shipping rod is securely held in the collet.
Switch the lathe toggle to LOW. After the Lathe is up to speed, switch the toggle to HIGH. If there is
excessive noise or vibration, tighten each of the mounting screws a quarter turn alternately until it
stops.
Check that the belt tracks along the center of the edge of the motor pulley. If not, adjust the spindle
mounting screws by loosening one and tightening the other a little until the belt is centered and there
is no excessive noise.
6.8
EXCESSIVE NOISE
6.8.1
6.8.2
Check that the belt has the correct tension. See step 6.5.1.
Make sure the mounting system is properly adjusted. Loosen the spindle mounting screws then
tighten the mounting screw alternately until the rubber bushings just begin to compress. Do not over
tighten. Follow steps 6.7.15 through 6.7.17.
A stop that is too long will cause the collet to slip which will make a squealing noise. It may also
cause the brake to drag which can squeak. See section 6.3 FITTING A STOP TO ADJUST THE
COLLET DIAMETER.
Worn out spindle bearings will usually cause a high pitched noise. Also the spindle housing (the
large main body of the Spindle) may get excessively hot with bad bearings. Bearing replacement
requires factory service.
6.8.3
6.8.4
For further maintenance or repairs, send the machine to WELLS DENTAL, INC. for factory service.
