Before you dump the gear, make sure that's it's not used to cut
threads. The more knowledgable members can tell you that.

I'm a retired engineer who has just completed refurbishing a South
9A. The serial number of this lathe is 39991NAR9 that appears to
the manufacturing date in 1959. I am very pleased with this
but I have discovered that the small stud gear has 24 teeth rather
the correct 20 teeth thus preventing the lathe from cutting the
thread pitches in the fine range. So it looks like I need a 20
stud gear South Bend part number PT32K20NK1. If you have this part
wish to sell it please contact me at james.f.taylor@ att.net
<mailto:james.f.taylor%40att.net>. The lathe
came with a bunch of change gears that appear to be for model B
lathes. The gears are 3/4 inch wide, 9/16 inch bore with a 1/8
keyway and mesh properly with the external model A change gears.
are 24T,36T,44T, 46T,52T,54T, and 60T. I would be willing to swap
these gears for a 20T stud gear or sell them if anyone is
