|Thread: Drummond M Type Lathe|
Ahhhh i've worked it out
Does anyone know if the lead screw looks standard? there is a shoulder at one of the screw and i can't work out how its fitted or how it can be removed so i can remove the nut. i was wondering if the leadscrew at some point had been damaged and repaired by adding the part with the shoulder.
you can see in the below picture with the nut, the threads to the right of the screw are very rounded.

i'm struggling to add pictures
i have stripped the lead screw out and it is heavily worn, the nut is U/S as is places i can move it up and down the lead screw so threads must be ruined.
i was wondering if a Myford ML 7 leadscrew could fit?
I have recently acquired a Drummond 3 1/2" M Type lathe. I have just started to strip down to refurbish it, overall it seems in decent condition generally but is currently still very 'as built'. I have been trawling the internet looking for some spares as I think I'm going to need to replace the lead screw and nut. I also think I will need to acquire some of the change gear bolts for holding the gears to the banjo. whilst I can find a few spares I'm struggling to find somewhere I can get a leadscrew and nut. any ideas??
also I was wondering if anyone has any experience of the size motor I should rig up, I have got a couple 1 being a small 1/4 horse from an old washing machine and the other is a 1/2 horse from an old black and decker band saw. the latter being my preferred option as it has a bracket I can utilise to attach to the rig with the countershaft. any comments would be much appreciated.
