    Jim Schroeder adapted G Meeks threading dog clutch mechanism to fit his Grizzly 10x22 lathe and the plans are available in a machinist publication. It looks like a great modification. I would like to try to make this modification to my lathe which is similar but not exact.
    However I think I need someone that is similar with the mechanism to guide me on what likely needs to be changed in order for it to work for my lathe.

    The main difference I am dealing with is my lathe is a Craftex 10x22 version which came from factory with the reverse tumbler. It also has module 1.0 gears as opposed to the module 1.5 gears in Schroeder plans.

    Obviously I would need to use the correct gears but do other components stay the same? I guess I eliminate the factory reverse tumbler?
    I imagine that unless somebody is very familiar with this setup, it will be very hard to advise me but I thought it might be worth a try.
    Thank you
