This design by Alan Buttulph addresses the construction of a clutch for ML7 lathes. Ingeniously, by fitting the clutch to the countershaft, construction is relatively straight forward. The article, in Issue 5 of Model Engineers' Workshop that accompanies these plans is available in the archive on this website*.
Like so many of these plans we hope it will be of interest to all and of real use to some who may well find this a very useful and practiocal modification, one which could be apllied to any lathe with a countershaft of this type.
As usual, the full size plan is contained in these two lowres jpeg files and full detail accompanying pdf versions, lower down the page are individual pages that can be printed on A4 sheets and taped together.
The plan can be downloaded as individual (overlapping) A4 pages for printing using the links below:
