Joinville 9-inch lathe manual

Joinville 9-inch Lathe - South Bend Copy. Not the maker's copy - but the best Manual for this lathe is the one produced in England for the South Bend clone by Boxford. Unlike the South Bend book "How to Run a Lathe" this 137-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. Includes a Parts List as Exploded Component Drawings of the original South Bend model - most parts being identical - and a copy of the South Bend sales & Technical Specification Catalogue.


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.
