    I have been using these 3D printed change gears on my old Seneca Falls 9" machine for metric conversion (63T/64T & 50T) and they work surprisingly well.
    That's interesting!
    I was contemplating doing some 3D printed gears, but thought they would last 3 minutes... but you've convinced me to give a shot when I'm up to that point.
    I'll be off to a toolmaker mate tomorrow and I'm going to pick his brains on gear making. I know the 'basics', but I've never cut one before and have no tools/mill to do it anyway, so it'll be Theory 101 for me!

    Thanks Aaron, I was going to retire it for a nice shiny new one, but I really like it - now I wish I had a 4 jaw to match!
    Here's a link to the Lathes UK website about Taylor chucks... Taylor conical scroll lathe chucks It makes some interesting reading.

    And if anyone is interested, here's a you-tube video blog of my rebuild progress - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5soZkKg6_NY&t=95s - just the strip down so far, but there's more on the way

    Beware: With your video link, the &t=95s at the end of the address has the effect of taking the viewer to the 95 second mark of the video, skipping the first 95 seconds of the introduction, but viewers can wind it back to the beginning (assuming they know how).

    Arrrgh! That's the best bits!

    Thanks Donaldo, I didn't realise it would do that... I'll remember the tip for future!
