  • Ever heard of a Triumph lathe?

    As the "Triumph" lathe appears on a NZ auction site:-

    Well, there was a Colchester Triumph:-


    Hmmmm..... not much like the one in the auction in fact it looks very much like my Drummond lathe c:1908, the gearbox however might be just like the one I had in a Triumph Herald

    Colchester have been around for a long time I doubt that is a Colchester lathe though...

    Here is an early Colchester Triumph... I think the seller is just a tiny bit optimistic on the price..

    Precision takes time.

      Yes, always ask high, it can be a problem though if it means an eventual no sale.

      I am 99.99999% sure the lathe in my picture is a Drummond as I have one of that age myself

        yep, Drummond ..think someone has added extra gearbox ..maybe a mototcycle gearbox ..or small AUSTIN something like that...maybe the word Triumph is on the gearbox .

          I was going to say 'didn't they make brake drum lathes'- then I see a set of gears there. Interesting lathe.
          I seldom do anything within the scope of logical reason and calculated cost/benefit, etc- I'm following my passion-

            FWIW, my wife's brother restored his fathers 1931 Triumph 7 (bought new!). He has since passed it on to his son and it still runs and is street legal. Only problem is when he gets to an open road speed limit (100 kph) -its- like 'yeah right'! Maybe that's where the gearbox originated. I have a photo, but don't know how to put it in this message. Anyone particularly interested can PM me
