Accuro Watchmakers' Lathe
Other Watchmakers' Lathes
Little known and seldom encountered, the background to Accuro 6 mm watchmakers' lathe is unknown - though it may be of British manufacture. With the maker's name cast into the front face of the headstock this would not have been a re-branded, re-badged or badge-engineered product, but instead almost certainly of indigenous manufacture.
Of the typically light Geneva-pattern (this design being preferred by some experts for delicate or intricate work) the Accuro had the flat on its otherwise round bed to the usual position at the rear and a headstock with what may have been bronze instead of the usual hardened-steel bearings. A 3-step pulley headstock to take drive by a round rope was provided, though oddly the front face of the largest diameter lacked the almost universally provided ring of 60 division holes.
Whether the Accuro was available with range of extras common to most other makers - such as a compound slide-rest assembly, a second tailstock with lever feed, single and double roller rests, fixed steady, saw table, Jacot Drum, pivoting and lapping attachments and various types of collet, etc. - is not known.
