    Angry grizzly G9729 Lathe/mill combo

    Just received this machine. seems well built for china and runs smooth. problem is lack of a thread dial indicator. Does not come with one and is not available from manufacturer. the machine has a 3/4 x 6 leadscrew which no other machine in the catalog has. any ideas where i can find one, or one that can be made to work. Also I know you can cut threads without this, but who wants to.

    For design and theory of a thread dial see HSM May/June 2000 Pg.38 "The lathe thread-chasing dial". For how to make one (now that you know tooth counts etc.)see MW Feb 1999 Pg.10 "A real do-it yourself threading dial".I know the instructions work in the MW article because I made one!
    Hope thes helps,
    Rob
