I have not included the thread since I have to change my settings from daily digest to individual. As for porches, I can see myself sitting in a rocking chair on mine, next summer, cradling a bore, wondering what unsavoury little fellow the eldest daughter tries to slip in the back door. The Hammacher and Schlemmer benches are clever and in some aspects more functional for ‘real’ work, and I would take one in a flash, but they are not examples of fine joinery and they simply lack sex appeal. Yes I am indeed thinking about building a Melhuish bench. I realise they are essentially gentlemen’s tool chests on steroids, but they are extremely cute despite their limited utility for serious work bigger than carving and fretwork. These are the markets that Melhuish seems to have targeted these benches too.
Download File With the filing rest delivery I had inquired about some touch-up paint for the lathe base, which I had put some chips in while fumbling with wrenches and chuck keys. They kindly sent me a small vial of matching paint, free of charge. Since inquiring about the paint I had become less concerned with such details, which are the inevitable result of using something at least for klutzes like myself.
I should have transferred the paint to a more air tight vial, it has subsequently dried up For turning longer lengths of material a means of support is required.

Posted on December 5, by LWK A great sign of just how much Nottingham Hackspace has grown over the last 12 months is that it took less than a week to go from one random suggestion of getting a metal lathe. A metal lathe is a tool that should be on every Hackspace tool list and it has been on ours since the start. But the initial cost plus accessories and tooling left in way into our future plans.

Steam Power I have a life-long interest in steam power, steam engines, turbines, boilers, and the accessories. Whether it is for Railroad applications, Seagoing vessels, or Stationary power facilities, it is all interesting. I think I find Steam power so fascinating because it is something a person with ordinary knowledge and skills can build with their own hands and simple tools.

The foundation of this success – and his Company’s rise to pre-eminence amongst the then many competing makers of small lathes – was a range of just four machines: Each version was of identical general arrangement, lightly built, using a “cantilever” bed of box-form section with flat-topped, 60 deg. With a standard-fit 6: However, despite their limitations of size and strength, the machines proved immensely popular and the Myford Company, based on their reputation of offering value-for-money accuracy and a wide range of accessories, went from strength to strength to emerge as the pre-eminent maker of small lathes in the UK.
Because of their very similar appearance and the confusing foundry marks – A1, A2, B1, B2 etc. However, this single lathe was to develop first into the ML. The ML1 and ML2 could swing 8. Both ranges were built from the early s until, in , instructions were received from the war-time Government’s Machine Tool Control Rationalisation Board to stop production and take over from Drummond busy with the important Maximatic production lathes manufacture of the Armed Services’ standard small lathe, the M-Type.

There is is a little bit more info buried in a footnote on one of the Myford pages on Lathes. In Ted married and, with twin daughters born in , moved to Beeston in to take up employment with Myford. Like most of his generation in senior engineering positions he was a hands-on man and, when his apprentices found a job too difficult, he would go down to the shop floor and demonstrate how it should be done. Popular with both the owners the Moore family and with the workforce he rose to become Works manager.
However, even after he retired he would spent many hours each week at the factory in an ‘advisory’ capacity – he really did live and breathe Myford machine tools. Every year his young nephew Phillip, together with his father, I would go to the Model Engineering Exhibition in London, not only to see the models on display but, just as importantly, to see Ted. One visit Phillip spent an hour on the Myford stand learning woodturning from their demonstrator, a Mr.

Drummond 5-inch Double-height Bed Photo Essay Having made, in , their first one-off lathe, by the Drummond Brothers, Arthur and Frank, were operating an engineering company from the outbuilding of a farmhouse, then some two-and-half miles from the centre of Guildford. Using just a couple of lathes, a small planing machine and a drill – all powered from an oil engine – the workshop began by turning out two types of machine: From these humble beginnings the company grew to become one of the largest employers in the area and, maintaining their independence until after the Second World War, became one of the best-known English machine-tool companies.
However, although Drummond always had a strong presence in the industrial market and expanded to supply many complex and ordinary machine tools for the motor and other trades including a now-rare small radial-arm drill , they were to become better known amongst the general public for their smaller machines starting, in with a flat-bed 3. Although the early flat-bed lathes are often referred to as the “B Type” strictly speaking that designation did not apply until the appearance of a much-modified lathe in – and after the introduction of Round Bed in , a lathe Drummond branded the “A Type”.
In sacrificing some rigidity in favour of stylistic adornment the lathe followed late 19th century practice note the shape of the bed and the graceful sweep of the headstock casting but the design was sound and the features introduced during the first few years of production – a compound slide rest, adjustable headstock bearings, dog clutch on the leadscrew, backgear, set-over tailstock and swing headstock – were guaranteed to appeal to the market.

Whenever you tackle a complex turning task, one that involves repeating a series of operations on several parts, you may get frustrated by the limitations of the standard 4-position toolholder. Four Position Toolholder One problem is that, in practice, these normally only holds two tools conveniently. Note that although it can be made entirely using the lathe itself, milling the dovetails and tool holder slots is much easier if you have access to a milling machine.
