    Snow Grinders, Sheffield, England

    I though that you might be interested in a few photographs that I've found showing the Snow factory in 1933 and a large face grinder doing a variety of jobs: http://www.lathes.co.uk/snow-grinders/index.html and http://www.lathes.co.uk/snow-grinders/page9.html If you click of the pictures you...

    Garage Special Engine Lathe

    Indeed, a strange lathe. The screwcutting chart looks to be a factory job yet, judging by the various fittings, it must be a "home-constructed" job. I've found this, but it's a very different lathe though it seems that its screwcutting chart has been used...

    Lathe designed in Jersey but made in London

    Hello, What a wonderful find - and this is, I feel, a very important English artifact and deserves wider coverage. I run the machine Tool Archive at http://www.lathes.co.uk/page21.html and http://www.lathes.co.uk/ and I'd love to be able to view the lathe and give it a prominent feature it...

    Bickett Milling Machine

    A Bickett No.1 milling machine has turned up on eBay.co.uk. I've gathered together what information I can on the maker - but might someone have some photographs that they could contribute to an article I'd like to put together? I have found one or two on the forum, but it's a wrestle to find...

    Talyrond #2 Manual

    Did you manage to buy the copy from Russia? It appears to have been sold. I have a "Wanted" advert running for you that might turn up something.

    Hendey lathe catalogue

    Hendey lathe Catalogue 1920s. Possibly one of the most interesting and "diverse" Hendey full-page catalogues, this edition has appeared elsewhere as a PDF of a rather grubby copy. I hope that this edition, scanned at high resolution and upload at a reasonably large file size, will provide some...

    Large machine tools by Noble and Lund

    Too big to fit into our sheds and garages, but an interesting catalogue from the 1930s? Oddly, the original pages had rather small images but, scanned at 800 d.p.i., they have blown up pretty well http://www.lathes.co.uk/noble-and-lund

    Hello - I'm trying to put something together about the machine tools made by Nathan.H.Baldwin.

    Over the years various photographs of fine-looking lathes by Baldwin have appeared, but nearly all have been compromised by "PhotoBucket" or similar storage systems and are too small to show details. Should any member be able to email me higher resolution pictures of anything made by Baldwin...

    Antique lathe

    I'd class the lathe as "semi-high-precision bench lathe" - rather like Stark and P & W, etc, but probably not of the quality. Date of manufacture - I'd guess somewhere between 1870 and 1890?

    Farnborough - 1944 - identification of lathes

    Hello Joe, Indeed, judging by the number of manuals we send out for ancient American (and Britsh) machine tools, most of them appear to have emigrated to Pakistan and India and are still working happily away there. They also seem to particularly favor older gear-making equipment

    Farnborough - 1944 - identification of lathes

    Thank you very much - the "built-in" reversing switch on top of the headstock should have been a clue!

    Farnborough - 1944 - identification of lathes

    A photograph taken in 1944 at the Royal Aircraft Establishment at Farnborough. It's suspected that the lathes are American; can anyone identify the maker? My thanks, Tony Griffiths.
