I finally got a 12x36 Chinese lathe and i`m about to pull the trigger on a taper attachment for it.

It replaces the feed screw in the cross slide. I am hoping it replaces it with a 10 TPI .100 per revolution screw and not the funky .125 per revolution screw that this machine has. Anyone know for sure?

This is the kit i`m looking at: https://www.grizzly.com/products/Grizzly-Taper-Attachment-Kit-for-G4002-G4003-G4003G/T10556

Should work on any of these Chinese 12x36's lathes from the past 20-30 years.

I believe if it did, the instruction manual would make mention of it.

Looks like from the Grizzly photo it's 0.100" per turn or 10 tpi. The only thing I'd be worried about is the gear on the shaft that meshes with your apron for power feeding. Don't know if they are the same modular pitch and number of teeth on the gears. Push comes to shove, you may need to Frankenstein the Grizzly and stock parts to get it working. Not unheard up and naturally a lot easier to do if you have another lathe to use as the 12 x 36 will be torn down.

That makes sense, I could remake the gears if necessary.

I wasnt able to make it out in the pics, thanks.
