I'm doing some minor refurbishment on my trusty Kerry since it seems worth it. Anyhow Tim Leech has cornered the market for CVA's and that's the only lathe I'd bother to buy to as a replacement. Reading an article in MEW issue 32 about lathe inspection it references two ME articles that look interesting. The first is "Renovating a lathe bed" - FJ Langfield No 3649 1981 The second "Restoring an old lathe" C L Barker No 3812 1987
Would anyone be so kind as to dig these articles out and scan them for me? If they can I'll be happy to post them on the internet for a week or so for everyone to have a look.
