    Hi to all i'm new to this forum, hope someone with experience on the Myford Super 7 lathe can help. I inherited this lathe in 1992 and used it occassionaly for turnin a bush etc. now that I have time I want to do some screw cutting but not sure how to setup the gear train for imperial threads. The lathe has a Norton (I think) gerabox but the gear train needs setting up. Anyway now I'm going to have some coffee.
    Cheers Barry
