Drummond 1908 headstock

I have just purchased a Drummond1908 lathe for refurbishing. I am taking the lathe apart but I can not see how to take the headstock spindle out so I could change the ''V'' driving belt.  The brass bearings seem to have to come out ''inwards''. Any help please.
Regards, Steven

Welcome, Mechanic Steven.
Have you, perchance, tried Google?
Maybe this site will be useful.
Drummond apparently made lots of different types of lathes so more info on yours would be helpful.

Hi all, My lathe is the 1908 flatbed model. and as I said before ,I can not figure out how to remove the stock head shaft from the casting. As I do not want to break anything I am waiting patiently for some advice.
Regards, Steven
