    A new addition to the family - a Union Graduate. It’s got everything but the lever operated tailstock, I’m well pleased with it :)

    I have a Graduate like that in my shed, it doesnt get used that often but is handy to have. It has what looks like the same chuck as yours, these have interchangeable jaws that are readily available to fit any work holding scenario you could wish for. Cracking lathes.

    very nice, that looks a lot like the one my old school skipped for not having enough guarding.

    I remember one exactly the same at my school, but in the 80's they did not bother with excessive H&S rules, the wood work teacher just whacked you with a bit of timber if you were doing anything stupid with the tools, the metal work teacher would cane you with a welding rod, happy days.

    It looks like a generic Taiwanese machine. Our one at work is made by Ecoca in Taiwan, but is German badged.

    And who said size isnt important.
    Is it an xyz machine or a harrison clone from the far east?

    I think that's my favourite style of Colchester. Mean and purposeful yet aesthetically very pleasing.
