The lathe shown in some of the photos is not a part of this listing. The compound is a “imperial” or Inch version. It will work on a Levin lathe which has 50mm center height as well as many other lathes like Derbyshire, Boley, Clement and many WW style lathes. The action is tight and smooth. I tightened the gibs screws and measured the backlash. It is about 0.0015″ on the lower slide, 0.002″ on the middle and less than 0.001. The lower screw has about 3 divisions BL and the top screw has about 2. It is an INCH version and the dials have 50 divisions. This is a rare tool post which holds up to 1/4 tool bits which are very common. The tool has some cosmetic imperfections as scratches, dings, pitting and stains, but operates as intended. I have noticed that I copied by mistake some information from another listing. Please disregard the sentence. My apologies for the confusion.
