I recently purchased a colchester student Lathe along with a Tom senior mill. Unfortunately the seller tried to move the machines and damaged both items.The lathe requires a 6 inch hand wheel and any other replacement parts available. and the tom senior mill requires the Xaxis lead screw and handle. My plans were to just restore both items and put into use but unfortunately due to damage and items becoming hard to find the dream is slowly slipping away,
any help or advice/Parts would be much appreciate.
For the Tom Senior parts, Have you tried the "Tom Senior Yahoo group" ?
Also, Is it a metric or Imperial machine ?
If it is metric, it would be fairly easy to make a replacement from something like that:
I know, it wouldn't be original... But at least you'll be able to play with them !!! :-)
Thank you very much for your reply and links been a great help. I have already made a purchase as these measure up good, to get the machine going.
