I have recently purchased a used lathe. I would appreciate any information that any one here has. The lathe has been modified by removing the lead screw and replacing that with a chain and gear. I would like to know what it looked like originally. So I could restore it to factory specs. Or any information on this machine at all especially pics of a currently working machine would be very very appreciated. Thanks.

Looks like someone replaced the rack & pinion with the chain and sprocket. Does it still have the half nut?

This is the only picture that I could find

I have not taken the carriage apart yet and I can't tell if it's there. My best guess is that the 1/2 nut is gone. I will take it apart and get some pics. I was assuming it had a rack that the carriage ran on but was not for sure. It looks like it has a flat machined surface with holes where the rack should be.

Looks like the 1/2 nut should fit behind the hole in the carriage. Looks like you are missing a lot of parts. But the good news is that the machine looks very substantial.
