Student 1800 user manual

Does anyone know if there is any documentation on the Colchester Student
1800 lathe available on-line? Operation is straightforward, but it would
be useful to get the exact description on using things like the taper
turning attachment. Any help or info would be appreciated.
Regards,

Thanks for the reply. I haven't been able to find a picture of the Clausing Colchester 6225. There is a picture of the one I have at

If the manual you have is similar, I would certainly appreciate it if you could email a scanned copy to me.
Thanks and regards, Nick

Ooops..Mine appears to be a late model round topped Mk1Master

"Clausing-Colchester A version of the Master was sold in the USA and Canada as the "Clausing-Colchester 13-inch" this lathe had an English-threads-only gearbox but a hardened bed, straight or gap with a choice of 24" or 36" inches between centres, as standard and, on the Mk. 2 versions, an improved version of the single-lever "Safety" apron that was modified to include an oil bath in its base.."
However. I do know a shop that still has a number of lathes like yours, and they are sticklers for keeping manuals about. Ill borrow one and scan it. May take a few weeks due to the holidays and such, but I think I can do it.

Have you tried Clausing? They still sell manuals for their older lathes:

Great, thanks very much. (I used to have one of the old roundhead lathes like your manual, but sold it a few years ago ...)
