Not very conclusive test. Guy came over and helped me lift the lathe into place, dropped it down to mark-up. That worked fine. Then it jammed. I had left a label on the the drive shaft and it jammed in the thread. Eventually managed to free the drive by hand. So still not sure if it has enough grunt to lift the lathe. Drill on charge again.... Will try again next time I can get Guy, or someone, over to help me lift it back again.
