Change gear setup
« on: March 27, 2015, 05:37:59 PM »
A considerable number of forum members have lathes that use change gears to achieve the correct feed for cutting threads.  This leads to the problem of calculating gear setups for a particular desired pitch.

Recently, I saw a post on HSM on this subject and one response included the link to this...

page.

The presentation looked well thought out and so I decided to pass it along for gearheads to add to their reference bookmarks.  [Actually, given the finite lifetime of web pages, you may want to copy it and store it locally.]
