    Thank you for the welcome it has the lead screw and quick change box also steady 3 jaw 4 jaw face plate coolant pump in its stand ohh and thread chasing dial but only 1 change gear for metric thread cutting and I have no info on how to change to right places so to speak (I'm a newbie to machining but a quick learner) from new it had taper attach and milling attach but the grandson who I naught it off couldn't find them and also taught the Oilers were great nipples so I have pulled her down for a wash and check and replace before I start to play

    Awesome I love the shape of them I'm thinking of putting 3ph with vfd so I can get a little bit more speed out of the spindle all bearings are in great shape and oil in head is like brand new all gears are neat no burs or wear marks and lead screw has no noticeable wear for its age the original owner was a watch maker I dont know if that's good or not but it seemed well looked after

    This company are still in business but make roller doors now I believe. Do you know what pitch the change gears are?

    Finding a steady will be pretty hard, but making or adapting one is not a huge challenge.

    Hi, I figured out that I have all the gears I知 supposed to!

    if you could post some pics of your steadies, that壇 be awesome.

    I have grub screws, but I知 thinking I might replace them with longer ones and add some lock nuts.
