Anyone else notice similarities...

between these two?

http://www.lathes.co.uk/myford%20mf74/img20.gif

and the lathe on this page:

http://lathes.co.uk/warwick


Apart from cosmetic differences on the slides and the headstock casting being different, that looks like the exact same bed and tailstock, (minus the riser block on the Myford tailstock), on both to me.

apparantly "The customer could choose either a flat or V-belt drive to the three-speed, 0.5" bore spindle with its 1.125" x 12 t.p.i. thread Whilst the nose thread was the same as that employed on the Myford Series 7 lathes (ML7 and Super 7) the register (between thread and abutment face) was a little larger."  So, they're the same......but different  smile

Wondering whom nicked whoms design. big_smile It started 'cos I noted there was a certain type of Myford on Ebay. Went to look at the info on it, and the first version of it, well bugger me if it weren't a Grayson/Warwick bed. So which one nicked the castings I starts wondering... big_smile

That's referring, in whole, to the inch or so of thread on the headstock spindle. big_smile
