    I think I have posted this pic before but it is a nice illustration of the bulk of the Churchill lathe.
    A picture of the 4 way toolpost from my Colchester Triumph sitting on top of the Computurns toolpost.

    That 4.5 tons at ten feet centres.
    Thats not heavy duty!
    Ten feet centres lang A4 is in the 10 tons plus as would be a swift or baby craven. They’re heavy duty :D
