Came across this on ebay:


and its the 5th photo that I noticed...just in the category of neat things on lathes (the idea of the Travel-Dial appeals to me too).
Among the plates, there is one relating diameter, feet/min, rev/min to the gear selection...not exact but...neat IMO.

Not a bad price either.

LeBlonds used to have a dial like that too.

I think they are famous for their 20MM cannons.

My Ikegai has that feature too along with analogue position readout built in to the cross slide and saddle.
