      Stuart Lathe


      Little known - and infrequently advertised - the English-made Stuart 6-inch centre height lathe is something of a Mystery. Obviously of high quality (the detailing and finish was exemplary) and looking to be a product of the 1930s (the socket-headed screws on the bearing caps are something of a give-away) the lathe was of heavy build with a deep, V-and-flat way bed 7 inches wide that retained much of its depth over the centre section. Fitted with a lever to disengage the bull wheel from the spindle, the headstock had a spindle that ran in plain bronze bearings and a threaded nose of unusually large diameter.
      A full screwcutting and feeds gearbox, able to generate 36 pitches and 36 rates of feed, was fitted - with a separate power shaft provided to drive the sliding and surfacing feeds. Both power shaft and leadscrew could be engaged or disengaged at will by separate gearbox-mounted levers. Surprisingly, given the robust nature of the other components, the apron was only single sided.
      If you have a similar machine, the writer would be delighted to hear from you.
