Just a note.
Its been decades ago when I purchased extra gears from HF having the extra sets allowed me to cut metric and odd ball thread pitches, somewhat tricky but doable.
there is slight errors but cutting less then 1" is acceptable in most cases.

Back then HF sent me a half set, I called and they told me keep what they sent me and sent me a second set.
It did take well over three months but I also ordered other gears and no doubt they had to come from china.

I think there maybe an after market gear which makes it better for cutting metric threads now.

I don't know if they updated the steel idler bushing but I made a split brass bushing, after the steel bushing seized and the plastic 80T gear split.
And you should allow some gear backlash when adjusting the idler.

No luck on the gears, but I found the jaws and some other parts...

Have the wrenches and allens, the original tool holder and the degree wheel.

The live center and the chuck both have the special tapers for the minis. The dead center is a standard one for my 9x20 lathe, you can see the little tip on the back end that's "extra". I believe I have 2 chucks set up for it, as well as another one that's good but separated.

I've got one more box to check but that's what was easily accessible. I honestly never changed the gears, but I never tried to use it for threading either.

That's easily a hunnerd dollars worth.

Keep me posted on the gears, Dub. Definitely interested in the jaws, hand tools and centers. Not so much the tool holder or degree wheel. I'm going to give the original owner one last call tonight...

Give Banggood a try. Prices are good. Slow shipping, but free.
