    Colchester, used them when i was at college - there are still some parts available from the makers, but sit down before you ask the price...

    Thanks for the replies. It does appear to be a mk1 Colechester student.

    Looks like it says Colchester on the plate on the base.

    I’d like to say round head Colchester, very tentatively.

    There is lettering under apron and chip pan, but I can’t quite read it. Chipmaster was a Colchester model but I can’t fit that onto the lettering.

    I believe that's a Colchester variant. As above, a well-built, quality machine. (And as always, doesn't mean that particular machine is in great shape, just that it was a good brand when built.)

    Lathe id?

    Can anyone id this lathe? Popped up on the local marketplace but no info on it. CC distance looks a little short. I’m guessing 12” swing.
