Hi Peter, I have a surplus set. I will be changing mine to a Levin setup with 48 DP gears and I have the 127 T gear for proper metric conversion. I do not have the metric conversion gears I traded with Jo or the fancy compound stud as I traded that stuff with another gent. Send me a PM.

Cheers Dan

Hi Peter I have the standard set I will have to check on the tooth count when the sun comes up it is still dark here. I will let you know after my morning coffee and my brain fog lifts a bit.

The gears are on the way to Peter and I just received the funds from him with a 1980 Cowells price list.

All the things I sent Peter are on the price list so I added them up. When I converted the amount to US dollars it was nearly spot on to the 1980 price total. I sent parts from a 1980 lathe to go on Peters 1980 lathe and we somehow decided on 1980 prices.

Wow-what a funny world.
