Worm Screw Retro-Fit on a Taig Lathe

Post by Hank.W.E » Mon Feb 28, 2011 9:47 am

This is a photo to back up a question I asked in the "General Discussion" Forum. Here is the mock-up of my worm screw set up. I got the screw and the gear from an old rotary table. It works smooth as silk....I even made a little oil bath for the screw. Thanks for looking!
