    And I bought all these tools for nothing?

      Maybe something used in a military ship or transportable machine shop for ground equipment support? Looks good, but I've always found that one machine that does everything, doesn't do any single thing well.

        The shopsmith of machine tools. It needs an ironworker to be perfect!

          I have to agree with Pherdie for the most part but that thing looks very "robust"

            Its certainly an interesting machine. There's a fair amount of info at Tony's site. See: http://www.lathes.co.uk/kitchenwade/

              Looks like something they might have had aboard the R101!

                Yes that is interesting. It does look as though it would perform well in any mode, contrary to what virtually every other combination machine would be capable of. Looks to be built like the proverbial 'brick shi_house'.
                I seldom do anything within the scope of logical reason and calculated cost/benefit, etc- I'm following my passion-

                  Looks interesting and right up the road from me. I may have to go and take a look.

                  And if you look REAL close at an analog signal,
                  You will find that it has discrete steps.

                    Built far better than any so called multipurpose machine made today .
                    It would be perfect for someone with a limited space and a lot of time on their hands.

                    Maybe we shouldn't let any machinest's wives see this as I can just picture it now 'you bought all that other junk when all you had to buy was one machine!"

                      That Lathes.Co.UK file is well worth reading:
