Yes it is 1 tpi. 96 teeth on the spindle and 24 on the screw works out to 1 tpi on a 4 tpi leadscrew.

That's a good looking old machine, and you sure can't argue with the price. I'm still looking for something like that for drive shaft work. Mike

A shop that did several drive shafts back in the 70's, had two lathes tail end to tail end. Each lathe could be used by itself, or for long shafts, they turned the tail stock of one around, and between the head stock, and carriage. They also had a special pieces that looked like a steady rest, but held bearings for the center bearing on a two or three piece shaft. I saw them cut, welding, and truing drive shafts, but never got to see how they balanced them.
