We picked up a Prazi Hobby Lathe at auction .
Cross feed works , the power feed dosen't .
Upon inspection the little dogs apper to be worn off . Also apper to have been half moons ( 4) . Question , why couldnt these be square edged or even wedge shaped . Be much easier to effect a repair .
No longer in production so parts are scarce .
Why do you even need power feed on the tool post ?

My termanology may be incorrect .
The machine has left and right travel .
No in and out feed .

Thanks .
So far I've only shortened a wrist pin and bored a pully .
No high speed production work .
I won't worry about it then .
