Here is the turret traverse mechanism, the handle is Bakelite. 
And another view. 
After some stripping to check out the workings and condition of the components. 
The worm gear. 
The main gear. 
After sandblasting it all looks nice and clean. 
Beautiful bit of engineering. 
Assembled and undercoated. 
The top view, the two exposed gears are really like that, no cover or protection whatsoever.
