Headstock Limit Switch Disconnect
The headstock limit switch disconnect is a handy option if you are going to take your American Beauty apart to move it. The function of the limit switch inside the headstock is to sense if the spindle lock is engaged. If it is, you can’t turn the lathe on. Disconnecting it is kind of hard, but not impossible. See the “Moving and American Beauty” document under the “Support” tab above. Adding this disconnect makes it a snap. It is neatly out of the way, below and behind the headstock. Please note, you still must unwire the motor the regular way to remove the headstock.
