The Screwcutting gearbox is able to cut 27 different threads in ex-factory trim and numerous additional ones when fitted with the "Outside Change Gears", and banjo unit, which is supplied as standard with every machine. To extend the threading range further, a wide range of supplementary gears are also available.

A metric conversion set is also available and supplied with an extra-large changewheel cover.
