Ward Capstan and Turret Lathes. Ward's system for Manuals included the publication of this very comprehensive but non-machine-specific 78-page "Operator's Instruction Manual, Instruction Manual and Catalogue" and to back this up with smaller publications to explain the operating peculiarities of individual models (listed below). The book illustrates examples of work produced as well as showing virtually every model of lathe produced - "0", "OE", "No.1", "No.1A", "No.2", No.2A", "No.2DS", "No.3", No.3A", No.3DS", "No.7", "No.7DS", "No.7 "prelector"", No.8 Turret", No.10 Turret", "No.10/13 Turret", "No.16 Turret". Published continuously from the 1930s to the 1970s this is an excellent companion to any of the Ward Manuals listed below. Wonderful illustrations.
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.
