According to this it uses a Norton gearbox which other lathes used so maybe search for Norton gears may turn up what you need easier than searching Rockford.

Chances are, most of those gears are standard DP, probably 14.5 PA. You might get lucky and find some off the shelf gears that could be adapted.

Thanks kitno
There are some on e-bay that may work. After looking at the lathe yesterday i fund he needs all of the gears on the top end
some one before him relay abused this machine. He paid $ 100.00 for the lathe without all the attachments he thought he got a deal but now he finds out the hard way like a new chuck he paid over 400.00
