I recently picked up a Colchester MK1 lathe. I have not been able to find the right manual for it online. Anyone have any sources?

Also, anyone know the various capacities? I know some oil goes into the headstock, but is all the oil the same (tellus 32) - looks like some fill plugs on the compound dial etc.

Order it from Clausing directly here in the US. I paid either $15 or $25 and it was shipped to me in a few days.

Just give them the s/n and they will ship the correct manual
