Ignore my last statement :-[, I got my wires crossed, ive so much going on right now, i mixed things up, sorry :-[.
However like you say hood, it dosent look strong enough for a big lathe.

Ive just been informed that the rack and pinion is only used for grinding applications, oh well  :(

Just to throw something out there, has anybody tried the above system instead of ballscrews?

Because of my limited time when i was home last i did not get a chance to power it up, however the guy i purchased it off said it will hold 1 thou over 8 inches.

Thanks for your help guys much appriciated.
I know it would be easier and cheaper to buy a used cnc lathe, but i like the fact that the caz has a short headstock, like i said in my first post, i,ll want to get to the rear of the spindle to adjust a spider while clocking a barrel in, also the caz has a hydraulic varispeed, with a high and a low gear. The more i look into retrofitting this the easier it looks to do. As for a toolchanger, i like what hood has on his, and will want something similar, i think 'duplimatic' make one, aswell as others ive seen.

It has a 12 inch chuck in the pics, swing is 595mm, and approx 40 inches between centres. Heres a pic ive lifted off the web to give an idea of its size.
Hopefully pic will attach.

Yes im from the UK, i live near Bolton, Lancashire however im currently workng in Iraq, which is why this project is a way off, timewise. I have seen your lathe on youtube and it looks the same size as my cazeneuve, i was tempted to buy it when Budget machinary had it.  ;D
