Hi I'm new here.

Last night a Denham junior lathe fell into my lap. Its many years since I have owned or used a lathe and I'm wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of where to get a manual for it.

I used to have a beautiful Smart and Brown but had to part with it due to space issues. I have been toying with getting a small lathe again for some time and a chance conversion led to me driving 90 miles to collect a Denham junior mk2 that was going to be picked up by the scrap man today in exchange for some beer tokens.

It looks fairly good but very dirty. Possibly missing some change gears and the gap piece for the bed. Still taking stock.

Hello and welcome Donald, has a write-up on the Denham Junior Mk2 here **LINK**
and lists machine tool manuals although that function wasn't working just now so can't tell if the Denham is included.

Hi Donald, welcome to the forum and the Denham Junior gang There are a few of us here although I think we keep it a bit quiet smiley

I've nearly finished restoring mine, just have a qctp to complete and install a 1.2kw 3 phase motor and vfd

I think I have a pdf copy of the manual if you pm me your email address.

Welcome to the forum Donald.

Good job it wasn't a DS&G that fell on you, we might have had to send an ambulance round

Thanks for your replies guys. Forgot to thank you all in advance yesterday because I was so excited.

Reassembly is commencing today after I get it up a flight of stairs. An ambulance may yet be required.

Job done I'm uninjured but one of my assistants may never have children after getting battered in the plums with a 3x3 wooden post as the lathe slipped off it! Funniest thing I've seen in ages!

I was in about the head gear today. The low speed pinion on the intermediate shaft if fairly buggered due to people trying to put it in gear when running. Do people break lathes?
