Gear Table for 10" Standard Modern Utilathe


Brand New Member
I have the above lathe and would like to do some metric threading. I have seen one image of the identical machine that had a gear chart on the gear door although it is illegible. I attempted to contact the image owner but have yet to receive a response. Does anyone have the chart and can send me an image or direct me to a site with the info?

It should be possible to create your own. With the info linked and a calculator or spreadsheet I think you could create your own. First step would be to see if you have a 127 tooth gear in your gear set. My lathe has an 8TPI lead screw. The 127 gear engages with either a 30, 56, 60 or 63 tooth gear to get the correct metric thread pitch as opposed to the 100 suggested. I assume the rest of the conversion is taken up by the QC.

I would contact StandardModern here: http://www.standardmodernlathes.com/index.html.

Give them your serial number, they can probably send you a manual specific for your lathe. They may also be able to provide you with the chart in question. They were very helpful when I needed info for my 9” Utilathe.
The Utilathes were never designed or made to thread in Metric. You will probably have to make (or come up with) your own change gears if you desire to thread in metric.
Hi Jim,

I will be going over my "new to me" 10" Utilathe pretty soon with a fine tooth comb and I'll let you know if I find a suitable table. A Question for you though: Would you have the correct belt size for the 10" Utilathe? The 11x20 is I believe a 5L330. The pulley on my 10" was broken, I made a new one to OEM spec, however, Just wondering if the belt that is running on it is the right one. I am not home now to see what it is, but if you have a number that would be great.
