Default A new to me lathe; I have several questions:

I have recently acquired a 1908 Lodge and Shipley lathe. It came with 3 different chucks, 2 steady rests, a milk crate of cutting tools, and a small bucket of cutting bits. It also came with several (30 or so) gears. My question is what are these for and where do they go?

Could be different feed gears for different thread pitch combinations.

Quite the gearbox setup for the spindle speeds!

Welcome to the Site.

They are for power feed speeds and cutting threads.

They time the spindle to the carriage lead screw.

EDIT: I missed the quick change box in the picture so maybe they are for the second upper QC box if the gears are missing or have been changed.

I have a newer model about a 1921 if I remember, those gears with the cogs on them might be ether out of the apron or the transmission but I don't know for sure. Post it over at PM there are some Lodge guys there that helped with mine, but don't forget us and let us know how thing go.

The lathe has a transmission that looks like mine so I am thinking it is not a change gear lathe , but I could be wrong

Shadetreewelder I thought I had gone through all of those manuals and couldn't find any that matched up to mine. I just called Monarch and gave the lady my serial number and they don't have any records back that far.

All I know is it was in a cotton mill around Columbus GA for many years and was purchased by the employee who ran it. I got it from his cousin after he passed.
It was originally powered by the belt system in the mill. I think last owner converted it to electric power by the motor mount that was on it. I have replaced the mount with a much better system. Just waiting on belts and a disconnect box to power it up.
