    On reflection, Martin Cleeve writing in Model Engineer in the 50's described how he added stuff to his Myford ML2-4.
    Just at the end of his life, he wrote " Screwcutting in the Lathe"in thw Workshop Practice series. " Your apron is shown on page 17.

    Again, In those earlier articles he did up an apron amongst other rthings like a skew tail stock, steadies,headstock bushes and so on.

    There is a MyMyford group but also an index in Iamnota home page.
    Worth a look

    This is duplication which will not "delete"

      Sorry folks,
      Guilty of repetition.
      Bloody machine will not "delete"

      Maybe the Iamnota link will give our friend some help.



      If the damned thing will not budge- may I be positive?
      Model Engineer Vol 113 No 2848 page 943 gives details of some of ML4 improvements.
      Going backwards in the same volume he builds a quick change gear box to do- gear cutting

        Nev, There is a fellow in Melb who does water cutting of steel etc. From what I have seen of his work he should be able to cut the gear without too much trouble. It certainly would be a lot cheaper than having the gear cut by one of the engineering firms that cut gears. Pls contact me for more info.

          They're a good mob to deal with Nifty, as you've probably found out by now. Also have a forum, pretty quiet, at

          & g'day John B - din't know you hung out here
