Nine inch South Bend Lathe backgear

I realized at some point that once things were apart even photos would not necessarily be enough. I really like this way of working, I lay out the parts as I remove them and make notes as to how they go together. Then I shoot  a picture of the whole thing for future reference.

Here is the back gear and eccentric showing how it attaches to the headstock.
