Default ELU DB-180 Lathe Manual

This is a reconstructed manual of the ELU DB-180 Lathe using materials mainly from Daltonsmachines.com.
Dalton has taken off the download link that's why I choose to upload my reconstructed manual here.

This is NOT a complete manual. The assembly instructions has been removed since a vintage ELU DB-180 bought used would have been assembled already.
The original manual was in German and since Dalton only made the translations of the text to English, diagrams (fig##) referred to are missing.
Would anyone with the original German manual please scan it and upload it here to make the instructions complete? (I do not need it - it's for the sake of others.)

Thanks

Dear Reuel, I am desperate to have some form of manual for this DB180, as I cannot remove the centre drive 4 pronged huge nut off the spindle, to expose the M18 X 2.5 thread. I am told that I can then buy a threaded adapter to increase the thread size to 1" x 8 tpi. From there I can buy a chuck to fot this thread. I would be most grateful if you could advise me as to how I can remove this drive centre nut. Then I can move on and get tyhings going. Thank you so very much for any help you could possibly give at this present time. Yours Sincerely Mr David Hamilton.

Yeshuah, I can help you with your problem. The centre drive unit may be removed as follows,

On the top to the headstock is a small hole about 4mm diameter. It looks like an oil hole. Insert a steel rod into this hole (I used an allen key). Turn the centre drive unit by hand until a hole in the spindle aligns with the steel rod. The steel rod will slip down into the hole in the spindle. This locks the spindle and the centre drive unit may now be loosened and removed with an adjustable wrench. This will give you access to the threaded end of the spindle.

Regards,
Lee.

Default Elu Lathe Manual--where is it?

Hi,
We have an ELU DB 180 lathe with copy attachment and we are looking for a manual.
We saw your post saying there was a manual uploaded, but we could not find it?
In other words, we could not find the manual to download?
Is it still available for download?
Please let us know, many thanks
