Cutting left-hand threads on a Chinese small lathe?

Amazing the process you’re going through for this. I took the lazy way out and 3D printed some gears for my micro lathe.

Awesome work.

Thanks Rob!

Yes I considered extending the travel of the tailstock, I'm currently gathering parts for that. How would that be related to making gears on my lathe?

Thanks Dave!

I don’t have a machinist course, so I use my projects as a ’’school’’ to learn. No better way to learn than to do it I believe. My ’’school manual’’ is the Machinery’s Handbook, lots to learn from it.

Cheers!

kwk posted a tailstock leadscrew, and i got mixed up lol

KWK:
Ok, I'll take the blame. LOL

This really is an interesting post. All this with a china lathe and milling attachment. Industrious man. Keep going.
