Drain the oil from the headstock, make sure it is squeaky clean and completely free of chips, check the tension on the headstock bearings, make sure the bearing lube holes are clear, refill with the recommended oil, "then" run the break in as recommended in the manual.
It should do a fine job for you. There is a bunch of good information on this lathe on the gunsmithing forum at benchrestcentral.
