|Thread: Colchester Chipmaster|
If we are getting personal mines an hermaphrodite it’s fully DRO but it’s still got imperial nuts and as far as I’m aware even a metric chippy is imperial in everything but it’s feeds-screws and their nuts lol
A very nice young lady from Colchester (thank you Lynnette) has sent me a copy of two manual pages one showing the toolkit items and the second being the list of these items. Please sent me your email if you would like a copy.
The list as requested
81-151 15/16 a/f x 3/4 a/f open end spanner
81-152 9/16 a/f x 11/16 a/f open end spanner
81-153 7/16 sq x 1/2 a/f combination spanner
81-154 15/16 x 11/16 a/f box spanner
81-155 Tommy Bar
81-156 3/8 a/f Allen hexagon key
81-157 5/16 a/f Allen hexagon key
81-158 7/32 a/f Allen hexagon key
81-159 3/16 a/f Allen hexagon key
81-161 1/8 a/f Allen hexagon key
81-262 3/32 a/f Allen hexagon key
that is the complete list for the Colchester Chipmaster and also I believe for some Bantams

Thank you for all your replies and suggestions but I believe I have actually found the supplied tool list for a Chipmaster and now I know what I’m looking for I bet I have pushed them aside looking through second hand tools at steam rallies and model engineer shows. As soon as I found the list it stood out like a sore thumb and made perfect sense it is a combination spanner 7/16 sq. x 1/2” AF and it makes sense as the 1/2” AF is for the two locking nuts on the compound slide swivel... Doh
part number 81-153
again many thanks for all who replied and as a stop gap until I find one I’m going to make a new locking bolt with a 1/2” AF hex head and just use a standard 1/2” combination spanner.
if anyone would like to see the full list just let me know and I will list everything.

This may sound like an odd request bearing in mind I have owned my Chipmaster for more than ten years. The lock on the saddle is engaged with a 7/16” square bolt to the rear of the saddle and from aquiring my machine I used an old brass stop tap key which has suddenly gone walk about I cannot find it anywhere and I’m wanting to replace it but it is not listed or mentioned in the manual and everyone I have asked about it are as puzzled as I am as no one has ever seen one, could anyone shed any light on this item please.
