My son and I went to a large bring and buy sale today ( Sat ) , amongst other things he bought a lathe built by Drummond brothers,

As far as I can tell from Tony's website it's a B type lathe,

Does anyone know where the serial number is ?

It looks in good shape, and he plans to restore it to usable condition.

Has anyone had experience of these lathes ?

Any info would be gratefully received,

Thanks,

Richard.

For 2.5k I am wondering if I should be making them.wink

Mark, the boiler will be about £1500 probably plus VAT, wheel castings £250 ish etc etc,

You can soon reach 2.5k , with cyl castings , axle boxes, boiler fittings etc.

I've been trying all week, about 10 times on the phone, but no human being on the phone, only a recorded lady saying I'll put you through , but nothing happens,

If I phone after 4pm she says" we are closed ",

I want to spend about 2.5k on 7 1/4" Bagnall boiler and castings etc, perhaps he dosen't need the money ?

Does anyone else do the bagnall castings etc ? that is likely to answer the phone.............................

Hello Emgee,

The tool holders started as 2" square EN3B, which is readily available and can be case hardened if required, and machines easily.

After making some Dickson type tool holders for my Boxford ME10, I decided to make some for my Colchester Student 1800, I had 6 already , and decided to make another 5,

Here are some pictures of the various operations,

Instead of using a 90 degree horizontal milling cutter to do the "Vs", I decided to tilt the head of my Elliott U2 mill over to 45 degrees, ( see the picture ) ,

Thread: EDGWICK 20" SHAPER
12/05/2018 16:45:08

Here's the first real job I've done with the newly rebuilt 20" Edgwick shaper,

Reducing some blocks of 2" square, to make some Dickson type tool holders for my Colchester Student 1800,

The picture shows the shaper doing a 300 thou deep cut, with an 8 thou per stroke feed rate,

25 strokes a minute, going up to 60 strokes a minute on a 10 thou finishing cut.

Stroke length 5 ".

Thread: 6" Burrell, Finished at last !
17/03/2018 17:51:09

Jason, Yes it's the X type.

17/03/2018 10:58:25

Hello Bazyle, The castings are by EKP Supplies in Devon, as far as I know they are still available.

Jason, Over the past 7 years I built up a collection of casting sets for other models,

Stuart S50

Stuart compound marine engine

Alyn Foundry Robinson gas engine

Fairbanks gas engine

Savage engine "Nicholas"

Stuart No9

2 x Stuart steam hammers

Stuart 6A compound marine engine

So I've got plenty to go at, my only decision is , which to start first !

The Burrell is for sale, If it sells that's OK, if it dosen't I don't mind, though I would gain a lot of workshop space if it did sell........................

Hello Bill,

Here is a picture of me in a previous life using a 1cwt Alldays forging hammer making railing heads, on the left is a 1cwt Massey hammer, and on the right you can just see the front of a 1/2cwt Alldays hammer.
