Hardinge - Cataract Unfortunately there was never a "Manual" for the early Cataract lathe and millers - but there is a wonderful full-range Catalogue showing all the Precision Bench and Screwcutting Lathes, Milling Machines, Automatic Gear and Pinion Cutters, Drills and the full accessory range made from the early 1900 to the early 1930s. Although not a Manual, there are many descriptive and illustrative details of the machines' construction and drive systems including Sectional Drawings of the various headstocks.
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.
