  • King 1218VS Live Centre issue

    So we purchased a King 1218VS in December. Took a wait to get the chuck and jaws we wanted, but we are loving it.

    My problem is when I turn the threaded ring on the tailstock side of the live centre unthreads when I turn. It doesn’t seem to be causing any issues when I turn. However, my gut says that it shouldn’t be doing this.

    Any thoughts?

    Welcome to the forum. It should not easily come apart even if it was designed to work with normal rotation direction of a wood lathe. I would call King, their customer service is supposed to be excellent.
