Re: Leadscrew, straight from Taig...
- Hi all
To clarify my first post,
Power - Stop the hand wheel turn the lead screw.
Manual - Stop the lead screw turn the hand wheel.
Either should move the carriage
Correct? or did I miss something here?
There is no clear indication of how quickly
the main drive gears can be engaged/disengaged
or reversed (if at all) so the hand wheel is key.
Appears to be fairly large diameter and have a
rubber grip ring for this purpose.

- How easy do you guys think it will be to make a bracket for change gears for the new power feed? Any chance someone might market this. I'd be willing to pay for a ready-made product.
