Hi all, it has been a while, i have recently sold my little Warco mini lathe and upgraded to a Ajax Extron which is a very nice piece of kit and i am very pleased.

I am aware that this is no doubt a Taiwanese branded lathe and i am not concerned with that as the quality is very good indeed. My only issue is i have no machine manual so if i ever need parts etc i will not have any information, i also need a comprehensive identification of the correct gear oil.

I am a time served miller fitter and turner so using the lathe is no issue i just like to have as much information as i can to hand. I have searched through the net and i can find nothing and Ajax UK have nothing for it either. The lathe was made in the mid 80's.

Nice looking lathe, i did see this one in G&M Tools. You could try contacting Ajax to see if they still have any info on this model lathe, they seem to of got out of the smaller machine market these days & offer larger machines now. They are down in Lymington in Hampshire.

Judging from the CE mark on the front it's more likely to be early 90's rather than mid 80's

Hi Daniel,

Welcome to the forum, there doesn't seem to be anything in the 'usual places'.

This is by the same company, but a rather different machine:
