    Thanks. WHen you look at the cost of a new metric threading gear box and a vast assortment of change gears the
    setup could be cost effective.

    As I recall the cost was around $3500 or maybe as high as $4500. If you do a lot of threading, both English and Metric, this would make sense over an EM machine. Let us know if and when you get current pricing.

    When I typed I might do this I meant that I would do the conversion myself with custom parts and electronics. At least for myself the electronics
    is not so challenging. Geting it to look decent and chucking my metric box and all the change gears is.

    Hi guys,
    Price is $3,895, about 1/2 of what the metric gear adapter kit would cost from the factory.
    Thanks for checking it out.
