    Default The Book of the Coventry Diehead

    Hi Forum Members.

    Many years ago a forum member posted a link to a PDF file called
    The Book of the Coventry Diehead.
    I have recently purchased a number of Die Heads and I have been looking for a manual or book on the Coventry Die Head for so far I have been unable to find such a book even wehen putting in a request at my local main library.
    The link to the PDF file that the member posted has been broken, probably now for many years.
    I now ask if any of the forum members have the book or a PDF copy of the book that they would be willing to sell the book to me or email a copy of the PDF file.
    I have tried Google books but I have had no success there either has the book has been out of press or many years.
    Please help.

    They are awesome! (Until you try to buy new threading dies for them $$$$) I have a few of them I keep in a safe place along with a variety of dies. I always knew them as "geometric threading heads". I use them on my manual lathe mostly, but now that I've seen the section on Bechlers (just got one of those from a friend about a month ago) I'm going on the hunt for a small one!

    I have a photocopy of the book, it is quite a thick tome! PM me if you are still looking.
