I finally got round to finishing an overhead drive for my lathe, inspired by pictures of a Schaublin example. I've yet to fit locking handles while I decide whether to go for press fit / threaded in / sliding handles.. and the MDF base is still in the testing stage while I get used to the ergonomics and decide on a way of locating it onto the lathe bench. The short belt was just a length to hand, and the WW headstock will eventually be replaced by another heavier-duty DIY spindle. I'm not entirely unfamiliar with lathe based gear cutting but my own setup is still a work in progress.

You need to unscrew the other end of the latch with a small Phillips screwdriver, then it will flip up.if you are careful and have the new battery ready, you can slip it in place without letting he screw fall out of the hole in the latch. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
Picked up the Swiss case from eBay, brand new but from the sixties I believe. Unfortunately can’t source a 10 1/2 mechanical movement so fitted a Swiss Ronda quartz movement. The dial is a genuine 1963 uncirculated half penny which I machined down to .5 mm and then silvered.
I made it for my wife's birthday who was born in 1963. She absolutely loves it
Just normal dial silvering compound
