The gearing is attached to the axle and countershaft which extend across the engine.
The countershaft for driving the saw arbors is below the machine, so that the saw that is not in use remains stationary.
The sides of this machine a, a, Fig. 3099, are cast with an extension for countershaft.
The boring spindle is driven by an idler pulley, direct from the countershaft.
The first is a spur gearing, connecting the motor to a countershaft placed under the motor.
A small lathe, with an 8-inch swing, can be obtained at a low cost, provided with a countershaft complete.
The rate of the belts, from the pulleys on to the countershaft, is a further proof of the tremendous velocity of the machine.
Your dynamo has been mounted on a wooden foundation, and belted to the countershaft, by means of an endless belt.
The power for this lathe can be supplied by means of a countershaft, although a foot-power arrangement may be attached.
This countershaft is also belted to a small dynamo, which runs whenever the engine is running.
