the lead screw shaft is smooth, no key. You actually have to drill a hole through the hub and put a pin in it. Very Manky

Re: Gears for CB 1220 XL

Gears for CB 1220 XL

Re: Smithy CB 1220-XL

Did a little shop organizing and made a simple mod to the lathe. I got tired of, whenever I had to open the back cover to change gears or engage the feed, having to remove long stock to do it.

Re: Smithy CB 1220-XL
