Hi, not wishing to contradict anyone elses advice but your Coronet Consort will have a 3/4 x 16 spindle thread. It is the same bearing and spindle as used on the earlier Coronet Minor and Elf.

Regarding the chuck options, a record RP2000 would be ideal. It will cope with the capacities that the machine allows while putting minimum strain on the spindle and bearing. It is also available ready machined with a 3/4 x 16 thread.

I hope this helps

If Adrspach's machine is a Consort then the threads are likely to be 3/4" x 16 UNF. It was only some of the older red Majors that had 7/8" x16 threads.

The 3/4" x 16 taps that I used (& still have) to make adaptors to fit my old lathe are UNF

Coronet owners might be interested in the Bolyen Workshop website.

On the red Majors, the 7/8 x 16TPI, does anyone know whether that is a Whitworth or UNF threadform?
Thanks,
Rupert
