8x16 lathe change gears.

Post by Buddy1940 » Wed Aug 04, 2021 6:08 pm

H I ALL.
NEW MEMBER SEEKING ADVISE, I have a MX-210 8x16 inch 750watt variable speed lathe and changed the gears to do some threading, and like an idiot 🙄 forgot to note the gear sizes for turning.
The spindle gear on the headstock is a 56 tooth gear. Any information on the turning gear sizes would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance. Buddy 1940.

Do you have a manual for the lathe? If so, it should explain how to set up the gears. If you don't have a manual, or if the manual you do have doesn't contain the information you need, try downloading the manual for the Grizzly 8x16 lathe here. If you're lucky, it will match your lathe closely enough to get you going.

Good luck, and welcome to the forum.
