When single point threading I power feed to within a few threads and then turn the chuck by hand.Avoids hairy scarie

Apologies for the delay but the Victoria Cross Memorial combined with the Anzac Day in London sort of got in the way!

So my present thoughts are the realisation that many small and new Far East lathes have a slowest speed of 100 rpm. When push came to shove 'my' 918 actually ran at a mind boggling 130rpm which was too high to avoid nervous breakdowns.

OK, I tamed the beast by newer pulleys but the classic mandrel handle made life easier- and safer.

Just a constructive thought?

Norman - yes the good old handle ala:

A very good option and even though my lathe will get down to 60rpm still a viable path if that extra bit of control is needed.
