I know this question has been posted previously but with the passage of time, my hope is the situation may have changed and maybe someone can suggest where I can purchase a pair of T33 & T34 change gears for a Myford MLSuper 7?

I got my 2 from the “new Myford” at Ali Pali ME exhibition a couple of years ago, so check there website.
Have you found the comprehensive chart of most combinations on the other post about this topic? I think it is on the second page, it’s the best thing I think I have found! The few times I have needed this mod it has been for some really odd stuff that would not otherwise be possible.
Hope that helps

Looking on ebay regularly under metalwork lathes, I see a large number of Myford gears of all sizes always on sale.

Unfortunately, he is not looking for a "large number" "of all sizes". He is looking for one gear in each of two specific sizes, 33t and 34t.
Could you point us to a specific eBay seller who currently, or within the last three months, has or had one or both of these in stock. Thanks.
If the OP does not want to cut his own gear, another option might be a 3D printed one. Have a look on Thingiverse as one might exist already, or there will be a program there to produce the file to enable it to be printed.
A second option is to approach an eBay seller, you_engraving. He makes Colchester and Harrison gears in delrin at good prices, and might make you a Myford one.

I did a batch of 33 and 34T for the myford about a year ago when they were unavailable. I have some still sitting on the shelf if you can't find them elsewhere.

Wow....thanks for all of your replies guys. I have searched the various sellers of gears on ebay and not surprisingly these two gears are the ones which are not available.

Many thanks for all of your inputs...

HPC gears are good source of spur gears, not cheap though. I think Myford gears are 20dp or used to be on earlier lathes.You will have to modify the bore to suit your needs they do 33 and 34 tooth.

Myford change gears are 14.5 degrees pressure angle. Unfortunately HPC only do 20 degrees.
