CVA Precision lathe Models1 and 1A: Operating and Maintenance Instructions (sometimes found branded CVA, Coles, Kearney & Trecker and Lodge & Shipley). Every known piece of literature about these fine lathes is included with three manuals in one: early and lathe editions and an additional, simpler edition - almost certainly the complete set published by CVA that covers all types. Also included is a comprehensive 41-page set of CVA Sales & Technical Specification literature.
The manuals contain, among other things, highly detailed and comprehensive screwcutting instructions and charts (the latter enlarged from the too-small original), Installation instructions, Lubrication requirements and oil types from different makers (of the period), operation Instructions, basic adjustments, general descriptions, detailed specification, electrical equipment, wiring diagram, Additional Equipment, Special Equipment, annotated photographs of the controls, etc. Details of these wonderful lathes are here: http://www.lathes.co.uk/cva


All manuals are scanned at high resolution and supplied as a top-quality print, bound and on a superior 129g paper.

Unless otherwise stated, all manuals are in English. We ship world-wide to all destinations.
