There are 4 speeds selectable by moving the drive belt. To get the additional 4 speeds, you switch internal gearing in the head to get the 8 speeds listed. Of course, these speeds may not be the same with the new motor, which may not be the same operating speed as the original. I missed the power feed attachment. Would be nice if it were working, but not a show stopper either way.

That is an older machine as it is not varable speed spindle. One of the best manual mills in the business. The mill can be set up w/ dro,dividing head, rotary table and horizontal cutting. A great machine that most rodders would love to own.
