Default Router Lathe without gears

I have a router lathe which does not have gears.

The screw facility is provided by cable.

See pics attached, including the type of work I do with it.

My lathe is a commercially available unit, purchased in Australia, brand name unknown.

The indexing chuck has 36 holes offering 10degree increments.

The spindle has 3 concentric drive wheels offering pitches of 125, 160 and 190mm.

I operate mine lefthanded and have made some mods, but look at the work.

Happy to field questions.

Incidently, flat reeding and fluting is not a lathe job, but barley twist is and is dead easy and fast.

Tks
C ya.

G'Day Clemo,
That's surely some beautiful work and with a router.
Could I please trouble you to show me a few photos of the actual Router Lathe.
It looks like a great option for someone with space restrictions.
Thank you.
Cheers, crowie
