    Default Colchester Lathes Video

    I found this Youtube video on the Colchester Lathes Company very interesting.

    I haven't looked at the video but the Colchester lathe we bought in the mid 70's got replaced twice because of problems but the third one stuck and it is still in use today.

    Great find

    Love the gold paint over every thing. Likely done for the filming.

    Back in the day even the hand held spray bottles looked high-end. (about the eight minute mark)

    I come across those as well. All very impressive. The 'still' from the vid above where the guy is pasting the body-filler on is pretty impressive. I wish I could do it that quick ... and with whatever stuff he's using. Though, probably toxic and banned now ...
