I was trying to be tricky with my digital caliper. I measured the
diameter of one of the holes for the gear post, set that as "zero" on
the caliper and then measured the distance between the holes. It
would have worked if I'd measured outside edge to outside edge instead
of inside to inside. Oh, well. Add 2 x 0.310 to my 0.983 makes
The picture of Bert's apron shows that he is missing the clutch parts.
Do we know if he has them or are they missing?
I have an extra reverser I could send him. This would not solve the
spindle problem. The metric gear problem would go away by changing to
whatever gears he has access to between the stud and the gearbox.

Am I wrong or did you just flub?other
the original reverse tumbler design. However, there is a solutionwhich is
relatively straight forward but it requires cutting the turning offthe
original spindle gear and replacing it with one keyed to thespindle.
Attached is a GIF of the alternative reversing gear which escapesmaintaining
the original center distances between gears and can use asubstantially
larger gear on the spindle. Trying to maintain the original 24 toothspindle
gear at 20 DP or 1.25 Metric Module was going to be extremelydifficult due
to the required keyway on a gear who's dedendum was barely greaterthan the
spindle diameter.measurements of
the original reverse tumbler plate and how it's attached to theheadstock but
I'm getting a bit talked out at this point.
