Can anyone cast light on what these supports might be from? I acquired them along with a lathe purchased last year, no use for them and want to know if they are of use to anyone.

The body is aluminium, each one has a sight glass for an oil reserve and a bronze sleeve bearing, they obviously tighten on to a vee way I assume on an overarm support but I could of course be totally wrong.... Approx 250 wide and 250 high - just guessing here not got them to hand nor have I actually measured them.

Thanks Pete

They are off a horizontal mill. No idea of the make/model though.

Look like a Victoria, with the sight glass and plunger oil pump.

The green one looks like it may be Adcock and Shipley.

Thanks for the responses, David, they were I think both green just my poor photography, and they are both identical. I will have a closer look but I think John is correct.

Thanks for the help

Now anyone want two supports let me know.
