Hercus Lathe Data Pack - as a copy of the original 9-inch South Bend the Hercus has the same layout and arrangement of models as the English Boxford - for which a dedicated, comprehensive Operation, Maintenance Manual was issued that is ideal for use with the Hercus. The original Boxford publication has been extended and  specially put together by Tony Griffiths with the aim of providing as complete a set of information as possible. It consists of a complete 206-page publication for all models of belt-drive Boxford lathe from first to last. Contains the larger and far-better early manual with clearer pictures and drawings together with additional sections and charts added not included in the original including, for example, how to generate pitches not shown on the screwcutting gearbox, which pitches the lever positions produce, a full list of standard and extra changewheels (and how they were set ex-factory) and data on metric to inch and inch to metric screwcutting conversions, etc.

Also includes:

  • a full Hercus Parts Manuals to cover both the early lathes and the later 260 types
  • pictures of the original charts fixed to the lathes and the original configuration of changewheel set-ups for all Hercus models including the different arrangements on the later Model 260 machines
  • several interesting early and late (260 type) Hercus Sales and Specification Catalogues.
