Spent another day in the workshop, messing with wood lathes today! Managed to find a couple of the old Chinese GMC lathes going cheap so grabbed both. Official I screw I nut I bolt shirt! One was missing its tool rest and the spur drive off the head stock spindle! Managed to fabricate a new tool rest out of plate steel and a 22mm bolt along with some MIG welding! But, do you think I could buy a replacement drive spur that will thread onto the headstock spindle? Tried Evilbay, and all the specialty wood lathe shops etc.

In the end I just ended up making one! Official I screw I nut I bolt shirt! The one on the left is OEM with the other Lathe, but has a different pitch thread and wont fit onto the second Lathe made by the same company. Headstock spindles are both threaded 3/4 inch, but one is 19 TPI and the other 10 TPI I ended up making the one on the right from a 2 inch long connecting nut for continuous threaded rod that’s 3/4 inch diameter, and 10 TPI Whitworth thread that fits the Lathe headstock spindle.

Just marked out the teeth, one on each face and cut them out with angle grinder, and 1mm cutting disk. Official I screw I nut I bolt shirt! For the Center point I just fitted a 3/4 bolt also 10 TPI into the jaws of my battery drill by welding a smaller dia bolt to the shank of the bolt where I cut the head off, so I could fit the thing into my half inch drill chuck to spin it. The I ground the point on it by spinning it in the battery drill while holding it against the stone on my bench grinder!
