    I missed that line, interesting, I wonder what the story is? I'm envisioning a 3rd cousin that was not happy with the sale and absconded to India with a filing cabinet full of drawings:D

    If you want north American manufactured, I think Standard-Modern is the only one left making manual machines. Taiwanese machines are generally ok, I would pass on chinese for several reasons.

    I'm no expert on the subject, but this development group seems to think there is a market for rail service to manufacturers of basic commodities. Of course they have not broken ground yet, so maybe...

    No idea if #12 gears would fit my machine, but if you get a machine for parts and the OP does not need them, send me some dimensions.

    Keep an eye out for a Standard-Modern 1334, you throw a lever to switch from Imperial to metric, no fussing with swapping gears. Lots of these were used in schools and can be found on the used...

    Are we talking Formula 1 racing, or just low budget rally/roundy round type racing? I'm guessing low budget, so that is where my advice comes from, just about any 12" x 36" lathe from USA or foreign...
