Hey guys, I'm been stopping in here for the last couple of months learning things and playing a little on my Rockwell 11" lathe and Millrite mill.

Yesterday I stumbled across a listing on CL for a Clausing Colchester Master, I believe a Mk 1.5. Ever since looking and learning about metal working I always thought the Colchester Master lathes were cool looking and wanted one. I know not the best criteria for picking out a lathe, but this is only a hobby basically to learn more about metal working. My main hobby is woodworking of the OWWM variety.

Anyway I will be picking it up on Wednesday. What I really need is a pdf of the manual for the machine so I don't do something bad like run it with no oil in it..... I'm familiar with Tony's lathes.UK site and have read everything there.

If anybody can help I would appreciate it.

Is your machine anything like the 13 x 36 in the manual here (http://www.chudov.com/projects/Clausing-Colchester-13-36-Master-Lathe/Colchester-13-inch-Geared-Lathe-Manual.pdf)?

The following manual is for the smaller Student series, but one
can never have too many manuals, can they ?

Thanks Eddy. My machine is almost exactly like that one. It will provide some nice reading material.

Just what I was looking for.

Here is the source where the manual was located. No doubt you
may find a kindred spirit there.
