    That's very interesting. As said I'd never even heard of anything like this before, I suppose it could have been set up for turning standard tapers much quicker than a taper attachment. Was a pretty sizeable machine though, wouldn't have fitted in my shed : P From memory it could also cut just about every thread in existence and I suspect you needed a special license to operate.

    Hi
    I had a TOS lathe wish I never sold it but needed the money as I was buying a house. The clutch went on the lathe and in the UK the 600 Group offer spares for TOS lathes.600 Group PLC - manufacturer and distributor of machine tools, laser marking systems, precision engineered components and mechanical handling & waste management equipment The spares were expensive so had the bits need for the clutch lazer cut.
