I am in the process of restoring one of these British made lathes; this one was made in 1947 in Huddersfield

Is there anyone else on the Forum who owns one? My interest is mainly for information exchange

Regards Brian

Hello Duane,

Thank you for replying, I thought I was a lone owner until now. Mine is the Mk III with the simpler screwcutting gearbox, it now looks rather better than when I bought it.

Sadly there is a compatibility problem of some kind with my computer, I am unable to attach pictures, tables or written material any longer on the Forum but we could keep in touch by email if you have a mind to.

My address is wood_y(at)btinternet(dot)com The correct symbols go into the brackets of course, I present it this way to thwart scammers who just copy and paste. There is an underscore between the d and y, .it will be returned as unsent if that is not included

I look forward to hearing from you

Kind regards Brian

It is best to send a Message Member (see the menu line at bottom of messages) note with any such information, trawlers then have no chance of getting your email address.

Brian Wood:

Looking at your existing photos makes me think that we would all be the poorer if you were unable to upload any more and I hope you will be able to fix the problem.

In particular, I would like to see a photo of the Cub.

Hello ega

It is a rather long standing problem that baffles me. In fairness I haven't tried to make it work again in recent months but for some reason I can now no longer see the command box to upload photos etc.

I can get things ready right up to that point and then no further, the page will not scroll to reveal it

Frustration rules!

Hi Brian. Have you tried a different browser ? You can actually install more than one on your PC.

Thanks for explaining.

I seem to remember that some "visibility" problems with the website were caused by ad blockers; if you are using one you could try disabling it temporarily.

I have just had a similar problem with the myGP app on my mobile where an essential OK button was hidden by a dialogue box, the answer being to nudge the box out of the way.

Hello Oldiron, Yes, I have tried that, thank you for the suggestion. The problem goes back to a computer change, brought about by the death of the hard drive on the old unit.

That experience was traumatic after I found that backing up my files and folders etc to an external hard drive turned out to be a selective process and some things were no longer accessible.

I then discovered the problem of putting material into my albums, by which time I was about ready to throw the damned thing out of the window!

So, I hope you will forgive me for a complete lack of enthusiasm to try and fix it; I have tried---honest!

Regards Brian
