BLOMQVIST "9-inch" South Bend Clone. A Complete Data Pack consisting of the original maker's Operation, Maintenance and parts Manual (Ref; MBB240) together with the better Manual produced in England for the South Bend clone by "Boxford". Unlike the South Bend book "How to Run a Lathe" this 126-page edition concentrates in detail on the 9-inch lathe, not the whole range, and thus contains much more information about how to operate it as well as many screwcutting charts, lists of changewheels set-ups as machines left the factory, metric conversions and other valuable data. A few mechanical details are different but the operating procedures are identical.
This has been specially put together by Tony Griffiths with the aim of providing as complete a set of information as possible.
It covers all models of belt-drive Boxford lathe from first to last - and so covers many other makes of South Bend 9-inch clone as well.
Contains the larger and far-better earlier manual with clearer pictures and drawings together with additional sections and charts added not included in the original with details, for example, of how to generate pitches not shown on the screwcutting gearbox, which pitches the lever positions produce, a full list of standard and extra changewheels to fit the different models (and how they were set ex-factory) and data on metric to inch and inch to metric screwcutting conversions.
