A lovely swing tool post for sale. This has been proffessionally made item and was supplied by Thorcraft in Hastings.
Designed and patented by Keneth Hart (aka "Martin Cleeves") in August 1970 and described in his definitive work, "Screw Cutting in the Lathe". This simple mechanism provides retraction for both external and internal thread cutting together with a unique 'swing' feature, allowing it to be flipped clear of the job for gauging those final internal cuts.
To improve integrity, the swinging arm is milled from a steel block rather than fabricated. Extra work perhaps but the solidness of the finished item fully justifies this approach.
This is a rare item made to this quality. Have a read of the Martin Cleeve book mentioned above. It was published by Argus books.
The tool post we have for sale is identical to the one above but has 7 tool clamp bolts and not 4 like the one above.
Price: £ SALE ON HOLD. (no additional VAT to add)
