    I don't see a release for the Boley F1 headstock t-bolt to adjust its position or remove it from the bed. Please advise me on this. Not your typical Watchmakers lathe.

    I figured it out.

    There is a screw at the left end of the headstock that will loosen the t-bolt to move the headstock. It is hidden by the two pulleys on the headstock and you have to remove, at the least, the smaller pulley closest to the screw and headstock to do this.

    So use to the average Watchmaker's lathe that I didn't notice this right away.

    Sin ver una foto solo puedo decirle que el husillo sale hacia adelante por lo tanto, afloja los tornillos en la polea y en la parte anterior del torno. Para que sacarlo?
