Thanks Guys, only time will tell how we get on together
I came away from the auction today with just one item
You just wouldn't believe it would you ... there was another one there but it was attached to a toolpost which was in turn attached to a rather large lump of scrap metal.
It too would have followed me home just for the toolpost and toolholder as it sold for next to nothing.
But I just had no means of carrying it home and my friendly scrap man was absent today so no joy. Almost broke my heart
But still, I now have three toolholders ....
Some more pic's as requested ...you asked .....
The tailstock and taper attachment
The back showing the suds pump and tank which slides out
The yellow is just some dust the carrier added, I've not had chance to clean it down as yet. Low voltage lighting transformer and isolation switch can be seen at the end.
The cockpit, seems awfully complicated, but it's not ...black panel is the imperial Norton threading and feed chart.
Inside the back cover are the other threading charts when the changewheels are altered. Quite comprehensive.
