I have been fortunate enough to aquire (free) a Coronet model 1 lathe. It came with a good selection of chisels and chuck and also two jacobs chucks. The problem is I cant work out how to remove the tailstock pin centre in order to mount the jacobs chuck.Can anyone help ? it does not look like anything screws off like it does with the headstock and I have tried turning the wheel to try and "screw out " the whole centre but it seems to lock in and cant bee pulled out even when the thread has cleared !

the tailstock is hollow - use a knock out bar

if the pin centre has a diameter greater than the tailstock tube you can also put a metal wedge between it and the tailstock and it will release when you wind it back in against it - same applies to the jacobs chuck.

The green and wetter end of the M4.
is there a hole in the opposite end of tailstock? into which you can place a brass drift/ steel rod and belt, ..er sorry, gently tap! to displace the taper and push out the live centre?
