hi all its not my idea but i had seen something smilier for a miford 7 so i had a go and mad one for me lathe i used the bracket for mounting the change gear wheel on to for the support bracket i had salvaged the worm drive from a burnt out motor the first thing i had to do is lengthen the shaft to fit the dividing plate see pic then i made up the top and bottom bush to fit in to the tube witch is off a cup tree then made the plate up that will bolt the drive to the bracket right pics
This is all very good stuff

That's a nice bit of kit you have there. Not used everyday but very useful when you do need it. Smiley-signs107

Nice work Bob.

However, looking at your work I think you were born too late - I could just see you cutting the cylinders on a steam engine with a hammer and chisel, and getting a perfect fit to the piston. I am amazed at the work you do, with the tools you have at hand. It would take me a week to cut that with a hacksaw.
thanks for the coments well the time to cut it wood say 20 minets or so i don't keep gowing i stop naw and then
