Edwin Harrington Reversing Attachment, pages 36-37

Has all the features of 48-inch regular, page 33, with exception of geared face plate, which admits of its use for regular work when reversing movement is not required. For rocker arms a special face plate keyed to spindle, crank lever and reverse gear attachment on front end of head stock, page 36, are substituted for geared face plate of regular lathe, page 33; extra narrow tool block, page 36, in place of compound block, page 32. With the adjustable reversing attachment connected to face plate, as above, a reverse movement is given to the work at any distance covered by the angle of 49¼ or 89½ degrees, as shown by cut [above], making a saving of time otherwise required for work to traverse full circle. Countershaft, hangers, 3 pulleys, 24 x 8, to run 80 turns per minute.
