John, Scott Logan is pretty helpful supplying info and parts for his lathes. You can't really expect him to give you specs for a part that he sells. I don't have a Logan right now so I can't help you there. Maybe one of the other members that has that model lathe might be able to help you out. You should be able to use a finish tap with the existing threads in the half nuts. I would think if you cut the threads deeper (obviously if the threads are worn they will have to be cut deeper) you will have to make them close tighter. I'm trying to remember if you can adjust the lever so you can pull them in tighter....seems like it would just be a matter of locking the lever down in a different position on the shaft. Sounds like it's doable.

thanks for replying ,understand logan position ,still trying to obtain specs for worm, specs availible for other models but no one can seems worm specs for 14" I'm going to install the worm I have check threads per inch if it is accurate from their I believe I can work out machine specs to replicate worm, I also was given an atlas 10" lathe from wife of a good friend of mine that past away several years back,Carl acquired the lathe from his brother who to was a good friend that past away from a tragic accident ,his wife said passing it on to me would be like keeping it in the family. Lathe is in good shape ,needs cleaning,comes with lot of tooling and mics,also about 50 files.

I'm Baaaaack can't believe how long it's bein. I'm getting prepared to start back on lathe and complete restoration.
I have come to conclusion to purchase parts from Logan ,although $ will end up being more than the cost of the lathe several machine shop said the price of the parts are far less than there charge to replicate,by a 1/3. Reality check time to get it done ,move forward get some use out of lathe . Ordered and received VFD for electric conversion to 3phase .
Again thank all you guys for your support ,looking forward to sharing my progress.
