mysterious cosmic forces.
Despite the shenanigans the LeBlond is in place and working. By wonderful coincidence just a couple of days before delivery I found a users manual on ebay with just twenty minutes left on it and bought it for 99p. Our postlady dropped it through the letterbox just minutes after the lathe was installed in position. Such events happen only at rare alignments of heavenly bodies.
Enough waffle, the reason I've put this post up, rather than to gloat over my new baby, is that previous owner John went through considerable effort to replicate the 'feed plate chart' that had worn away. Seems like it is providing a public service to post it up for other Regal owners.
Finally, here's a link to the lathes.co.uk site where there is further info on the Regal.
