David,

You seem to have managed to upload some photos! The second one is a good size.

By the way, it was the plate next to the Threading indicator that we were interested in.

Regards, Matthew

It's hard to tell, but I think that 3-jaw in the 1st picture would be the original that came with the lathe... which, based on your serial number, probably qualifies it for one of the oldest chucks ever pictured on MadModder? (1930).
Cheers!

Some good information on those chucks here: http://www.lathes.co.uk/taylor/page3.html

The older Edgwick recently seen on eBay had one of those chucks, so if yours matches I think we can suggest that Edgwick made a deal with Chas Taylor to supply chucks for their lathes.
Cheers!

Thanks for that link, from the picture that is the chuck I have this lathe is becoming more and more interesting as time goes by and to think they were going to sell for scrap if they could not sell it. It looks like I saved a piece of history.
