Just wanted to share a small tip to those that may have a Reeves-type lathe or Shopsmith. I purchased a used Shop Fox lathe and the minimum lathe speed that it would go down to was 690 RPM's. Watched a few videos on maintenance on these lathes and decided to try it myself. First I bought a replacement belt from NAPA Auto Parts. The new belt is quite a bit wider than the old one. I cleaned off both pulley shafts with WD40. Just sprayed and turned on the lathe running the speed up and down. Next I installed the new belt. Next I used an air compressor to blow / dry the shaft and pulleys. Then all that was left to do was oil the shafts with some 3 in 1 oil. Run the speeds up and down again and add more oil if needed. After doing this the lathe will run a minimum of 490 RPM's. While it will not go down to 100 like a lot of the new electronic variable speed lathes but I think it was a great improvement anyways.
