PM Research Mini Engine Lathe Build

The fixture plate showed up so I could get some more done. Worked on the reverse lever assembly.

Hey Tony,
It's not threaded, but it will have a 1/32 slot cut down the length of carrage travel. The gear you made will be turned by the shaft, or carrage handle, moving the carrage. I still have to cut the key slot in that gear that will mate with the lead screw slot.
