It is funny how things work out, we've recently bought a Dean Smith and Grace centre lathe to replace an aging Colchester. A couple of weeks later we find that we need to manufacture a new reverser nut for a K1 locomotive and the original is starting to get really worn. The thread is a three start ACME and left hand in EN16R so needs something with a bit of bulk to take the cutting strain.

What a brilliant job to put the new lathe to the test!

HARROGATE MODEL ENGINEERING SHOW 2015 - Friday 8th to Sunday 10th May

M-Machine will be back at the Harrogate show, at our usual plot in the main hall - and we'll be bringing three great big vans full of stock!

If you want us to pre-cut an order and take it to the show for collection, please telephone your order through and we'll jump straight onto it. - otherwise pop along as we're sure to have plenty to choose from on the day.

For more information on the show events, click this link: The Harrogate Show

Other News: At last, we've got another brand new band saw in the workshop - and the excitement didn't end there... we took delivery of a Dean Smith and Grace Type 17 lathe with the factory fitted relieving attachment/gear. This means we can now make our own taps, dies and hobs without all of the grinding as the attachment allows us to turn all of the tooth relief straight on the lathe. (I'd love to make a video of this, it's really interesting how the mechanism works)
