I don’t think so, he was asking about drill chucks and live centers on another post.Is it for sale?
I thought about that. A member here made a set of metric gears for me, but I do not have the metric cover. The actual gear box and selector look a lot narrower than mine not sure if it is a change in design or an optical delusion.I don’t think so, he was asking about drill chucks and live centers on another post.
Then again, everything is for sale, for the right price.
My guess it’s late 60’s machine.
@FredC The gearbox looks odd because it has the metric gear kit cover. Most of the machines I’ve seen with those covers have no gears, the gears are long gone/lost.
I tried searching a bit for the member or posts for they guy offering the metric gear set, no luck so far. I am interested. There is a version of the 'mounting block' as Hardinge calls it inside the cover.I thought about that. A member here made a set of metric gears for me, but I do not have the metric cover.

Pretty reasonable if you ask me. I paid $3500 ten years ago for most of the gears to cut many metric threads and a few odd English threads. I did not get the gear cover, and a couple of the gears are usable but ought to be reworked. I store them in a drawer in a nearby toolbox. Life would be easier with the digital set up and no thread being impossible.Last I recall 4k
