Wade-CAV Miniature round-bed lathe Data Set. Although no manual was ever produced for this lathe, the following 37-page collection of interesting sales literature is helpful in getting the best from it and includes: two detailed Sales & Technical Specification Catalogues combined (including a rare one from the USA agent) with some duplication. Sectional and general-arrangement drawings, the maker's screwcutting and changewheel chart and the special backgear (slow-speed) engagement instructions (something that puzzles most users). Also included is the article on these lathes by Tony Griffiths of lathes.co.uk This package represents all the data available for these lathes. Details of these lathes can be found here.
