It may not be an economic use of your time for one unit, but it could have
far reaching impacts in third world countries. Go for it and keep me at least
informed, in case nobody else cares.

- After much messing about, I bought an old tacho off eBay. It's a Starret
tacho quite like this one:
You reset it and pop the end in your spinning chuck. Time it for a minute
and the see how many revs it has counted. The scale on the outside counts
revs (1-100) and the inside scale clicks over every 100 revs.
I have some info for my Halifax 524 if that's any use to anyone:
I didn't change motor drive pulleys right now as it's too much hassle, but
with the motor connected to the smaller pully and Pully 1 being the largest
drive pully (top left) just above/behind the headstock the speeds in RPM
1 - 2000
2 - 1275
3 - 800
4 - 500
Backgear - 85
I hope this info is useful to someone.
