The Drummond 4in. Lathe


Before the Myford ML 7 sprang to prominence during the late 1940s and early 50s, the model engineer’s lathe of choice for many years had been the Drummond 4”, ‘A’ Type, Cylindrical Bed Lathe, many of which remain in use today.

Intended for use by model makers and apprentices in particular, the cylindrical bed made this a very versatile machine, even when treadle powered, and many fine models were made on them.

The 12 page brochure from the mid 1920s which we have reprinted is largely promotional in nature, but does include 2 pages showing machining operations, some using the unique height adjustment feature. 11 illustrations in all, photographs and drawings. Softcover. Camden
