    The colour looks right for it being one of Collectors machines, and looking at the dealers other listings there are other machines the same colour, including a Churchill way grinder.

    It looks like it may be a small jig borer, which would help to explain the tight tolerances. You could try sending pictures to Tony, at Lathes UK. If Tony has never heard of the maker he might post...

    My Holbrook came with Zerks throughout, but they are all oiling points, so I would try to get hold of a lube chart before going ahead and using grease on your Hendey.

    Obviously smaller threaded fasteners would be made on screw machines, would a thread milling machine take it from there, or would it make more sense for a range in the middle to be cut by single...

    Most likely a war baby then, do you have any idea what sort of numbers they were made in, I don't recall having seen one before.

    That makes more sense, I did wonder why it would be that long for cutting gears. Looking closer at the cutter mounted, it does look more like a thread profile. Would this date from the second world...

    I actually have one and a half lathe legs, that came with a non matching lathe. Why the missing half you ask, apparently the owner before the one I bought it from had the lathe encroaching on a...

    I don't think anyone has mentioned it, but you can probably reuse the backplate on your existing chuck. You would need to make an adaptor to go between the backplate and a different chuck, but for...

    My brother has a C13 with pumped spindle oil, I'm pretty sure that's also 1500 RPM, though it may well be tat the AERE were running them at 2000 RPM. I have an older C13 that has drip feed oilers,...

    It might be worth looking into industrial hard chrome plating on the thread and shoulder area, it depends on how much run-out you are dealing with. I doubt it would be cheap, and any subsequent...

    There are 6 holes in the back of the chuck that are perhaps worth investigating, possibly for a peg spanner. Those in conjunction with the hole in the side of the body. It does look rather like the...

    After peeling a piece of paper off a new backing pad and it left the loops behind, I decided it was time to experiment. I sliced the hook layer off a worn out backing pad and stuck on some PSA paper,...

    I have one of the cheap clones and it suffers from the same issue with the hook and loop, but the backing pads are cheap enough to count as expendable. I would also prefer stick on paper, so I might...

    Make a cutter profile that is more like a W than a T and run the stock at 45* to what you are now running. Of course being round stock that is only an abstract.

    The next thing I would try for removing the back plate is to chuck up a piece of decent sized hex bar and go at it with an air impact, possibly while applying a large lever at the same time.

    I can't add much, but there is a picture of a similar looking model on the Yahoo Holbrook group, it has the same split dovetail bed and has other details in common.

    Hi Larry,

    I don't know if you are familiar with the swing up threading tool, but it should be a lot easier to construct than a retracting tool holder. Here is a link to a thread on the subject...
