      Velox Mechanical Hacksaws
      An Operation & Parts Manual is available for these saws


      Manufactured by the B. Elliott & Co. Ltd. Of Victoria Road, Willesden, London N.W.10 and with factories in Willesden, Ipswich and Leiston, the Velox range of saws was manufactured from the late 1940s until the 1960s. Four models were available with diameter capacities of 6, 7.5, 10 and 12 inches.   
      Build along the lines of the even heavier and more massive Wicksteed models, all versions of the Velox were heavy machines with massive box-section bases, overams and bows in cast iron. Drive came from a built-in motor, carried on a hinged plate the location of which secured by a "positioning bolt and locking stud" that protruded through the front face of the base Drive passed from the motor using either two or  three V-belts, to a ball-bearing countershaft and hence to helical gears. Although two speeds were provided, this was by double step pulleys and the change from one to the other involved slackening the locking stud on the motor plate so that belt slack was achieved, moving the belts across to the other pulley, repositioning the top stud to give the correct belt tension and finally locking the setting using the lower bolt; a 2-speed gearbox would have been preferable?
      A hydraulic control allowed the operator to select how heavy the feed was, a small plunger in the hydraulic dashpot being adjustable to control the setting
      Coolant was held in a removable tank, inside the base at its rear, with the vane-type pump belt driven from a pulley on the main drive countershaft.
