All the major copying parts from a stripped-down Myford Nini-Kop lathe. The first two pictures show the before and after. All the parts were recovered from a previously working machine dating to the 1970s with unified threads. The hydraulic tank pump motor fan cooling and terminal block have sustained some (repairable) damage during storage. I haven't been able to check the 3-phase motor windings for continuity readings but the windings, when viewed from an access cover, do not smell or appear to have been overheated.

Emco Emcomat 7 machining centre - an Emco 7 lathe complete with the 4-speed vertical milling head. This compact and versatile assembly has 3.5" (90 mm) centre height and 17.5" (450 mm) between centres. Two very useful features are the excellent spread of speeds - 65 to 2800 r.p.m. - and the ease of changing them. There no belts to move, only two headstock-mounted levers and the 2-speed, 1-phase electric motor push buttons. The 4-speed vertical head is self-contained with its own motor and control from push buttons on the headstock.

Portass Model S lathe 3" x 16" gap-bed, backgeared and screwcutting. Mounted on the maker's stand with the original and rather unusual "compound drive" from a new 1.1 kW single-phase motor with a starter switch. A restoration of the lathe has been undertaken and it's now in full working order. As an example of the work undertaken, one arm of the casting supporting the back gear shaft was damaged; a new arm was grafted on (aircraft standard) then line bored and new bearings installed. New headstock bearings, oil pots, drive belts, 1.1Kw electric motor and starter switch.

MYFORD SUPER 7B LATHE 3.5" x 19" (serial No. SK160527M) with a screwcutting gearbox, power cross feed and a spindle clutch. Mounted on the maker's cabinet stand with levelling blocks and a deep chip tray. Purchased by me direct from Myford, Nottingham in 1983 or 4. It was once stored unused for ten years between house moves and has been used only for light work on model engineering. I believe this was one of the last Super 7Bs to be sold by Myford and was built entirely ‘in-house’, i.e. with no dumbing down with imported castings.

A fine example of Union L.I.A.S. backgeared and screwcutting 3.5" x 16" lathe. The lathe was purchased in the early 1960s and used by a qualified machinist in his spare time to produce parts for a model steam engine - when it regularly worked to tolerances of 0.0005". As well as turning, the lead screw was used to plane splines. One of the photographs below shows an example of this work. The lathe is driven by a belt from a motor mounted on a purpose-built bracket - this originally being fastened to the wall behind the lathe.
