    Default Advance lathe

    Does anyone have a manual or instructions for an advance lathe?

    My son has an Advance lathe. I have a few web pages I saved a few years ago. No manual. Is yours plain bearings or taper roller bearings? Although he has left home - the lathe is still in my workshop (sigh!). I will try to work out where I found the web pages, I am sure some were from Tony's site. http://www.lathes.co.uk/advance/ Cheers, Findlay.

    I have a yet to be put back together (tapered bearing headstock) Advance. No manual that I have ever seen. Was a reasonably good website here on the Advance but it disappeared a few years ago. http://www.titaniumstudios.com/tooljunkie/advance.html There is also this - http://home.iprimus.com.au/stevor/Lathe.htm

    The titanium studios page is still around - URL has changed a bit.

    http://archives.dcemulation.org/www....e/advance.html

    Also found another page (new to me)

    http://blog.open-designer.org/?p=31

    The one I have access to is a roller bearing headstock. I may have some notes from work we did on it.
