    I have some more re-familiarization with my model before I comment on this. However, I don't know if this is meaningful but my 10L is fitted with a wide range (4TPI - 480TPI) double tumbler QC. My gearbox cover is the two piece type with a "W.P. RAPP - Precision Machines" brass plate on it. I don't know if those gears will fit under it but the bottom (swing out section) is rather large. The upper section (very small) is bolted to the headstock and only covers the spindle gear and < 40% of the reverse tumblers.

    I'm still searching for the model information that Paula sent me > 10 years ago. I do remember that it was a wide range precision tool room lathe with precision lead screw.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    That sounds like the standard 10L setup. Mine has been converted to the same. My goal with this thread was not to recap how to metric thread with the SB setup. Rather, to give us a place to discuss other mechanisms, as we did here:

    A short time ago, a metric transposing attachent for a Heavy 10 was advertised on this site. It had the required guarding.
    Is your guard this big?

    BTW: It is already sold.

    Ted,

    Mine looks similar but not exactly like that. Mine looks exactly like the SB service manual depicts the cover for a double tumbler/wide range QC, which is different from a standard double tumbler. The bottom of mine is partially open like that one though.

    Thanks for the link.

    My lathe will cut only Imperial threads. Up to .75 inch/19 mm I use taps and dies. Larger metric I can farm out. For me taps and dies are faster and the results are dead nuts.
    Thanks,
