    Default Machinery missing from the lathes website

    The excellent reference website http://www.lathes.co.uk/index.html has a few missing manufacturers, a couple of which I have looked for in vain, Wadkin mills, and Kearney & Trecker.
    If anybody has information that they could pass on to the website, it would benefit us all. There must be lots of missing information out there somewhere.

    Do you mean J. Wadkin Ltd. Leicester?
    Both Watkin and K&T are represented on Vintage Machinery dot org by a wealth of information.

    I don't think the site's owner has banned cnc information, but cnc owners are too busy or cannot be bothered to contribute.
    I've just bookmarked http://vintagemachinery.org/ thanks reggie.

    I don't see how the UK website is useful. Not very comprehensive, no manuals, etc., etc.

    He has a myriad of manuals. Selling them is where he gets his revenue.

    I'd like to see someone put forward a comparable resource as I've yet to find one.
