Hi Harry It is the Cross Slide scale mounting that I am particularly interested in. The main reason I got the gear was to convert from the metric dials to imperial readings - I'm a dyed in the wool imperialist and cannot get my head round Napoleon's nonsense. All my other tools and drawings are imperial based. I graduated to the M300 quite recently from a Myford S7 where all longitudinal cutting was controlled by the leadscrew handwheel, which of course is not present on a 'real' lathe. I still have the S7. I'll let you know what happens.
