The wood lathe is making a lot of squeaking/rubbing noises

I have taken a look and lubricated it where I think it needs this, but still noisy.

Perhaps it got a bit damaged recently?

If anyone has any suggestions on how to fix it, or wants to come down and take a look (remember to bring a mask!). I had a look online, but there wasn't anything obvious.

Not enough belt tension?

Yep - it's the belt. I've reseated it and it sounds a lot happier now.

James.
