1940's Centec 2 Horizontal Milling Machine
« on: August 17, 2013, 03:45:53 PM »
Hi All,  I originally posted this in the 'Tools' section but realise that this 'Projects' section is more appropriate.

I have recently acquired an early Centec 2 (not a 2A or B).  It has been dismantled and there are possibly some bits missing but I intend to have a go at breathing life back into the little fellow, hence my reason for posting.

I have spent considerable time searching the net and can find very little on or about the Centec 2, the most iformation I can find is here - http://www.lathes.co.uk/centec/index.html .  There is quite a bit of stuff on the 2A's, B's and C's - including operating manuals, but not the Centec 2! 

So was wondering if any of you kind and knowledgeable chaps could help?  Ideally, I would like to borrow a manual or exploded diagram or even pics and some measurements.

If you would like to see a brief video of my Centec, please go here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tuAk9ctMeUY

Thanks in anticipation of any help offered.

Regards, Nigel
