Re: ML drawings for 5" TDS1 lathes

I don't *know* the answer and I can't find a specific drawing but if you look at my post further up "Stud gears A-G for metric gearbox lathes" you'll see that the 24 tooth "D" letter gear is annotated differently to the rest of the set of 7. It doesn't specifically say 'metric' like the other 6 and ...

Re: ML drawings for 5" TDS1 lathes

Actually I've found what I think is an error in one of the drawings. In ML100/512C FEED NUT ENGLISH the thread form is given as 1/2" x 10tpi modified square thread (LH). This is obviously the cross slide nut but in the drawing for the cross slide screw ML100/514 the thread form is given as 1/2" dia ...

Re: Viceroy TDS1/2 PCS

Ah, you'll have to disregard everything I've written above Steve, I just did a search for the PCS and it doesn't have the full screw cutting gearbox that I'm describing. Yours has 2 round dials for coarse/fine and threading/feeding. It should be a simple matter to discover what's wrong.

Re: Viceroy TDS1/2 PCS

If you're going to take the front off the gearbox beware that getting the tumbler rack gear back on correctly is a bit of a trial because the gear and the spline have odd numbers of teeth so there are a lot of possible iterations to put it back together and you can't see to do it because the front p...

Re: WANTED FIXED STEADY + CHANGE GEARS VICEROY TDS 1.1

You can't do metric-inch or inch-metric by just changing the stud gears a-g, you need compound gears like 127/100 or 127/130 in the train. There's a lot of info about on it but basically the answer to your question is no.

Re: WANTED FIXED STEADY + CHANGE GEARS VICEROY TDS 1.1

Walid for Metric sizes just multiply by 25.4

So, for example, for 0.625" ---- 0.625 x 25.4 = 15.875mm
For 9/16" ---- 9/16 x 25.4 = 14.2875mm

Re: WANTED FIXED STEADY + CHANGE GEARS VICEROY TDS 1.1

Original gears are just normal mild steel. You'd have to be careful with plastic gears but they might get you out of trouble. You could keep the steel D gear on there most of the time.

Do you have gear cutting equipment?

Just in case you really don't have them, here is the full drawing set for getting new ones made. This is for the metric lathe.

Hi Walid.

The spare gears should be stored on a bolt inside the gear change cover. Are you sure that they are not there?

Re: WANTED FIXED STEADY + CHANGE GEARS VICEROY TDS 1.1

Gear D doesn't do reversing, except that it sits on the tumbler reverse pivot. The tumbler itself does the reversing. What the lettered gears do is allow you to cut the full range of threads as shown on the front of the gearbox. Look at the gear cutting chart. You'll see letters in the boxes along t...

Re: Sharpedge to Single Phase

You might indeed be able to run a sharpedge directly off single phase using a capacitor for the spare leg if the motor can be wired for delta configuration. It doesn't need a lot of startup torque. Might take a shove to get it turning.

Re: WANTED FIXED STEADY + CHANGE GEARS VICEROY TDS 1.1

Hi Drew, Sorry to hear about your grandad, it sounds like he meant a lot to you. Your lathe has a gearbox on the front? With a round dial and a lever that you can set to N at the top or one of 5 positions? If so then the A-G gears are usually held on a stud under the end gear cover. If they are miss...

I came across one of these on Ebay the other day. I'd never seen a combined wood and metal lathe before. cant find it now so I think it must have sold Indeed it did - £412 BUT it was already converted to single phase, came with two nice wood turning steadies , some timber dog drives and a set of ch...

TDS3 CWML. Combination plain-turning wood/metal lathe. £2-300 seems reasonable IMHO.

Hi Lauren,

You should be able to add photos by using the browse button when you're typing a post, just scroll down and look for it. You might have to re-size the photos first.

What area are you in? Someone might be able to come and take a look/give you advice.

Re: Viceroy metric lathe ex school)

The cross slide screw is 1/2" diameter 2.5mm pitch LH modified square section thread which means that it is almost square with just 5 degrees flank angle each side. You'd have to either grind a tool to turn a nut or make a tap to suit. Another option is to make a nut from delrin, following the instr...

Re: Introduction of a seldom version of Viceroy 280 VS

The cross slide screw is indeed 1/2" diameter 2.5mm pitch. They simply changed the inch screw's pitch from 10tpi to 2.5mm to make it a metric screw.
