Re: Metric threads on a 14 1/2


All the 14 1/2" South Bends I know of have a 6 TPI leadscrew.
Maybe, if yours is real old, it might have an 8, but I doubt it.

Hi Allan,

I have uploaded a new album to the pictures section called 14 1/2" gear train.

There is a labeled photo of the gears under the cover at the end of the lathe.

Let me know if you have any questions about what you see there.

To recap,
single tumbler
8 tpi on the leadscrew.

Thanks again

Is your machine a single tumbler or double tumbler gearbox? What are the counts of teeth on the end gears? What pitch is the leadscrew?
