I did a search for the "Samson td1336" on the control panel and got a 
few hits for Tida. Then later found Tida on the cross slide handle.

The back gears won't be needed. The motor will be changed out for a 
3-phase motor and VFD, so the step pulleys go away. The plan is to copy 
the HNC electric clutch system for high and low:
so the back gears go away.

I'm also thinking about leaving space on the spindle shaft for a worm 
gear so that the spindle can be used for C axis or dividing.
