Lang Lathes all early Models - including the "Junior" - a general guide to their Installation, Operation, Maintenance and Adjustment - includes: "Operation of Lang Junior lathes", "Operation of Lang Lathes" and "Installation of Lang Lathes" These booklets describe, variously, setting the foundations for Lang machines, and how to lift them. They also provide useful information on adjusting the clutch, brake, flanged spindle nose, spindle bearings, spindle sleeve, revolving centre and pump and clear photographic plates of several machines.
Lang Junior Lathes up to the 1940s (two upward-pointing levers on the face of the headstock with, between them, one small downwards pointing lever). Technical literature for these earlier, smaller Lang lathes was sparse so a data pack has been assembled with all known publications consisting of two editions (early and late) of the "Operation of Lang Lathes" and two well-illustrated early Junior Sales Catalogues that cover all three sizes.
