    Default Boxford ?

    Could anyone please tell me what model lathe I have just bought, the only number I can find is HEH5656-1-4 and I have looked on the net and my number is nowhere to be found?
    Also the lathe wont traverse automatically both in cross slide and in thread mode I have tried ever thing with the levers but I can only use it by hand traverse left to right the clutch wheel only moves slightly to right and left, Before I strip the apron down I just wondered if I was doing it wrong as I am a complete novice. Thank You for any help.

    You may want to try in the South Bend section. There was a day when Boxfords were a copy of South Bend lathes. As time went by the paths the companies took probably diverged but depending on how close to the wartime originals yours is, there may be a lot of shared features with South Bend.

    Hey John, this would be perfect if we were on your network, however we aren't and can't see the photos.
