That feed screw nut looks far more ‘complexicated’ than the one on my 2B. A nut (threaded pipe) with a part flange and bolt hole(s) to secure it, IIRC.

Hi David,

Can you message me with your address and I'll get it sent back - absolutely not a problem, I'd rather it was in a good home and I know what you mean about searching for things you no longer have!!

Hi Dave Halford - I've never been aware of a slotting machine, though the name obviously gives away the intent. I guess its an adaptor intent on languishing in a box until its use is obvious!!

Hi 'not done it yet' - looking at the half nut supplied by David I suspect that my father was trying to make a halfnut and then decided that a full nut was easier, I can even see where he filled in the slot.

Just a thought , do you have a copy of the handbook as per this photo (it’s 17 pages ) , also , in another leaflet I have , The Centec Co are advertising a High Speed Router . I am wondering if this may be an independently driven unit which would fit into the aperture on the unit you displayed in an earlier post ? , maybe some other forum member has seen such a thing ? .


best wishes

Hi David,

Address received - will post next week.

Yes I do have the handbook - not really sure where I got it actually, its in PDF - did you send it a while ago?? (i'm getting increasingly forgetful!!).

I found a centec router on ebay, which looks like it might fit - and I think I have some of the other items that are with it - I'll have to have another look in Dad's workshop as it may still be there since I wouldn't have known what I was looking for!

All the best.
