Machine types: 



  • Operators Manual
  • Catalog

Myford ML1, ML2, ML3 and ML4 lathes. A complete and very interesting data pack for the lathes with all known literature - increased in size from the tiny originals to A4 for clearer pictures, drawings, charts and diagrams. Comprises six Sales and Accessories Catalogues (including what must have been the first ever, together with the last issued in 1946 that together show all the original extras offered) with one of them doubling as the small but useful Instruction Book with screwcutting charts and a price list. Also included is a very useful Myford instructional booklet for the later ML7 "Lessons in Lathe Work" showing all the common operations possible on these small machines; a 4-page booklet prepared by the factory for the ML2 to ML4 range but apparently never issued titled: "Particulars and Adjustments Concerning the Working of the Lathes and Accessories"; the long article by Tony Griffiths detailing the development of the lathes, their technical specification, suggested modifications and hints as to which parts from other Myford models can be used as spare parts - and a number of recently discovered photographs from the Myford Archives. 97 pages
