  • I’m thinking of purchasing a al-320g lathe I’ve had a look at one like the spindle speed a nice low 60rpm I was looking at the Change gears for threading only one had a oil nipple the other 2 didn’t are the gears supported by a ballbearing?

    Typically, change gears used for threading take their lube from the rest of the gear train. Also, the odd ones aren't used that much (I bought my lathe in 1988, and I have special change gears I have NOT YET ever installed to do any work. It's nice to have them, but oh, well.) Actually, the supports for the gears should have a grease nipple of something on them. If they don't, you can easily add it.
