Well there you go. 

I did not find any other labels on my machine, but it would be nice to know what brand it is.

I'll give it another go when i come home from work

Alli your lathe is an early Harrison M300, a very respectable machine. Comparing it to a Grizzly I'd not do.

 

Knowing this may help your research.

Alli,I agree withe the others,I think it's a cam lock chuck,the allen screw holes seem to be set on an angle,could be they lock the cams.Take it off and clean everything.You did'nt say if your chuck had any runout,yet your question suggests that it does.Try it after the cleaning,but,as has been said on here before,don't start any machining or anything untill you are absolutely sure about the runout,and what caused it,or you might ruin a perfectly good chuck. To use the engineering version of the old carpenter's saying,check twice(or more) fix once.

I sure will take your advice in handy when coming home to my Lathe.

I think my lathe is a early 90's model. It has been repainted.

I think this was a good buy for only 500$

The Chuck has for sure been changed before by the previous owner. I can see on all the other pictures of this lathe on google that the chuck is directly connected to the spindle instead of using an adapter plate like there is on mine.

I think i'll just go ahead and order a new chuck which is designed for direct mount (cam lock)

This way i know for sure that its gonna last for a while and i can trust my tools.

Im gonna totally strip it and repaint it white. Any suggestions for paint?

My lathe is a "Peterhead Engineering LTD" which i didnt get any results from on google.

After a bit of searching i see it is VERY similar to the Grizzly G0709 lathe.

Looks a lot like mine!

 

My brain tranlated Peterhead to D**khead. Is this really a Company?  Surprised

For now here is the progress with the new control circuits in place. Everything is new except for the main switch.

I am only missing the motor protection unit (bi-metall)

I believe it will arrive tomorrow.

We also tested everything on the bench.

I figured it would be nice with a "jogging" button so i also added one of those.

Also its designed to need a reset if power is lost to reengage.

Rammed,

There are many towns in the UK that end in 'head'. This is derived from them being on or near a 'headland' on the coast. Other examples are Minehead, Ramehead and Birkenhead.
