what is that you need 13 for?

1/13 = 0.07692

2mm looks close. = 0.078739

Not really a need at this point for the 13, I just know it is coarse for the 1/2 inch fasteners.

Thanks for the math and I'll see what gears I have and post back what I come up with.

Thanks everyone for the comments.

Scotts, have you checked your manuals for change gear information yet?
I helped a buddy get his big lathe moved into place and wired in. Took out the wall between the machine area and the welding / mechanics area. Took a week but we moved the 6000# hunk of iron from out in te cold to it's new heated home. We also improved the new wall by using 2 X 6's instead of 2 X 4's.
You might want to put up sacrificial wall covering so you do not coat the area behind the chuck eith oil.
Have fun.
