2 weeks ago got a phone call to pick up a mill and a lathe for FREE if I could get them out of his garage they were mine all mine !! They had been siting there for 5 years and he told me what you see is what you get, (missing tail stock and tool holders for quick change and 8" 4 jaw chuck and 3 jaws for the 6" chuck) Now, the lathe a King model 1440 and the mill, King model KC-45 so a lathe of 14x40 weighing 1300lbs and a rong-fu 45 of 700lbs had to be moved to my basement. Not to worry got them both in the truck with a fork lift and into the basement with no problems!!
Now for my little question... threading wise as I looked on the lathe there are 2 diagrams for threading and for placement of the gears one says 40T to 120T/127T to 40T and the other is 40T to 127T to 40T so which one is right ???
